As if the cost of living in Arizona these days isn't high enough, new tax laws may make it more expensive for couples who are deciding to split. The least of concerns for those going through a divorce are taxes, but new tax laws that go into effect in 2019 may impact those who are ending their marriage. The changes stem from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was signed into law in Dec. 2017.
One of the biggest considerations of a parenting plan is the schedule that the children will follow. It isn't always easy to decide this, so parents must be sure to think about a variety of factors before they make the decision.
Parenting is never easy, but parenting during a separation can be especially difficult. Arizona parents only want the best for their kids, so working out a child custody arrangement is usually a top priority. Putting differences aside and working together for the benefit of children creates a stable environment which facilitates development. A lengthy and vicious custody battle between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continues to make headlines, but now the former spouses appear to be turning over a new leaf.
Deciding to end a marriage at any age is tough and extremely stressful. These days, more and more senior adults in Arizona are experiencing divorce. According to recent statistics, divorce rates among adults ages 50 and older in the United States have nearly doubled in the last 20 years. Commonly known as gray divorce, this unique situation presents special challenges to senior adults who find themselves thrust into sudden instability.
When Arizona parents separate these days, a common arrangement is shared parenting. Also known as co-parenting, this is a child custody arrangement in which both parents assume equal and joint responsibility of raising children even though the parents are legally separated. Although this type of custody agreement can be difficult, especially during a divorce, it is arguably the most beneficial custody arrangement for children.
