Pay attention to your child during a divorce

Divorce is difficult for adults, but children who have to live through their parents divorcing are placed in a precarious position. These children love both parents and likely can't stand the thought of having to choose between parents. The adults in these situations need to remember that this is a hard time for the kids.

More women are paying child support these days

An interesting trend is taking shape in Arizona and across the country. In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of women paying child support. Traditionally, men earned higher incomes and were noncustodial parents, so they were required to pay child support to mothers. Child support laws were put in place in every state to make sure that children get the financial support they need. More women are being ordered make these payments, since women today occupy higher paying positions and make more money than they used to.

Managing finances during and after a divorce

When a marriage ends, it's hard enough to manage thoughts and emotions, let alone finances. Keeping track of money and financial obligations is never easy, but the process of divorce can make managing finances even more stressful and complex. Luckily, financial help is available for Arizona residents going through a divorce.

New child custody legislation favors co-parenting

When a marriage ends, it's common for parents to worry about the impacts that a divorce can have on children. Children typically need both parents, and their well-being may suffer when a parent is suddenly taken out of their lives. Likewise, parents can have a great deal of anxiety when it comes to post-divorce custody arrangements. However, child custody arrangements in Arizona and across the country these days have shifted from a winner-take-all situation to shared 50/50 parenting.

Several arrested for negligent child support payments

A top priority in the lives of Arizona parents should be the well-being of their children. For a number of reasons, parents may decide to split. In today's world, it often takes financial support from both parents to meet the needs of children, and single parents often struggle financially to support their children, regardless of income. For this reason, child support laws have been established across the country. Those that break these laws and neglect to pay child support can face hefty fines and even jail time.

Special challenges await women amid late life divorce

According to recent statistics, the rate of divorce for couples ages 50 and older in the United States has almost doubled in the last 15 to 20 years. In what is commonly referred to as gray divorce, couples in Arizona and across the country are deciding to split later in life after decades of marriage. Being single and over the age of 50 can present unique financial challenges, especially for women.
