Jerry Fabiano explains how to examine the total economic picture during divorce, rather than focusing on a single factor. He touches on retirement accounts, the marital residence, and asset substitution.
Issues After Divorce
The separation agreement often does not deal with some important consequences and new realities that the former couple will eventually need to address. In this post, Jerry Fabiano shares some of those new realities along with questions to consider.
The Parenting Plan: Avoiding Problems
One of the most important issues to be resolved in the Separation Agreement is the Parenting Plan. This document will impact parents and children not only at the beginning of the separation/divorce, but also in the future.
Mediation Is the Answer
Andrea Peyser’s 2017 article in the NY Post “Divorce System Prompts Bitter Couples to Use Kids as Weapons,” found that the only people to benefit from protracted power struggles between adults are lawyers. There is a better way, and that way is mediation.
What is Divorce Mediation?
More than 40% of American marriages end in divorce, at a whopping average cost of $20,000 to $50,000 per couple in legal fees. There is a much less expensive way to dissolve a marriage – a mediated divorce. Ending a marriage is hard enough on a family, so why ruin everyone’s financial future too? If you are considering divorce, divorce mediation is an alternative.
