Mediation can help resolve child custody disputes

When people in Maryland make the decision to divorce, one of the most complex aspects of ending the marriage is often resolving child custody issues. While the parents' romantic relationship is over, it is often very difficult for both the parents and the children to move from full-time presence with one another to shared time between homes. Each parent may have differing views on how exactly child custody time should be split. This can be accentuated during a contentious divorce, and it is possible for the relationship between parents and children to suffer as a result.

Issues that arise in divorce for older couples

What is sometimes called "gray divorce" is on the rise, and it means that more older couples in Maryland may be divorcing than in previous generations. For those who have not been active participants in managing the household finances, this could mean having to deal with such matters for the first time in their lives.

Housework arguments can be a warning sign for a marriage

It may be no surprise that couples in Maryland who eventually decide to divorce are more likely to argue about a range of issues before the end of the marriage. However, one study indicates that arguments over relatively mundane issues like housework and the distribution of chores can be a significant factor in a split, not only fights over issues that more immediately indicate a serious clash of values, such as finances and parenting.

Financial planning is essential during a divorce

The best time to prepare for divorce is well ahead of the actual court filing. Therefore, unhappy Maryland spouses interested in protecting their finances should take steps to minimize the harmful effects of marital dissolution. Every situation is different, but there are some basic precautions that can help make the financial transition to post-divorce life a bit easier.
