What makes the divorce process so difficult?


The decision to end a marriage can be difficult for couples in Minnesota. However, taking such a major step is often necessary for relationships that no longer work and cannot be salvaged. Although it might be difficult to see the positivity that could be gained through the process, the end result of dissolution could be beneficial for both spouses. Despite that, getting through the process can be very challenging.

Helping you strategize through the child custody process


Parents in Minnesota and elsewhere tend to focus on the needs of their children over their own needs. While this is typical no matter the age of the child, this could prove to be difficult when parents divorce. Although the focus still remains on the child or children, the transition from a one-house family to a two-house family can be very challenging and emotional on everyone involved. Additionally, this process requires parents to agree on a fair and effective custody arrangement.

Overcoming the disadvantages of joint custody arrangements


Parents in Minnesota make major decisions regarding their children all the time. While this is just a part of being a parent, it is not always easy to make the difficult parenting decisions. This is especially true when parents are divorced. And, depending on the child custody arrangement, parents may find this to be a complex matter.

How can prenuptial agreements benefit any couple?


Whether you are married or not, it is likely that you are aware of the daunting divorce statistics of our nation. Because roughly 40 to 50 percent of first-time marriages end in divorce, couples in Minnesota and elsewhere consider having serious conversations prior to getting married. While it is difficult to talk about dissolution before a union starts. Nonetheless, this could help the couple avoid serious disputes and divorce issues if the marriage ends.

Divorce Rates On The Rise For People Over 50

Recent research shows that among people over the age of 40, more and more couples are getting divorced than ever before. For couples in the 40 to 50 year old age bracket, the divorce rate has seen an incremental increase, according to the Pew Foundation. The research says that the divorce rate for people over 50 has doubled since 1990, and for those over the age of 65, the divorce rate has tripled in the same time frame. The trend for more mature divorces continues as the divorce rates for younger couples are generally dropping.
