How can I deal with depression during divorce?

Big changes in your life, whether they are good or bad, can potentially lead to depression. This is because big changes lead to the creation of new habits and new ways of looking at the world. If you are going through difficulties in your marriage or you have recently gone through a divorce, you may be experiencing symptoms of depression as a result.

What to think about before divorce when you have kids

Many people who are married have children, and parents who are dissatisfied with their marriage may use their children's needs as a reason to stay in the marriage. They may worry that their children will be negatively affected by a divorce, and they would not want to put their children through such an ordeal. Therefore, they may decide to stay in an unhappy marriage.

Millennials changing the divorce process by drafting prenups

In the past, Virginia couples were more likely to get married and have children young, and most couples got married without any type of planning for a potential divorce in the future. Millennials have changed that perspective, with more of these couples opting to wait longer to get married, choosing instead to first cohabititate. They are also changing trends and the divorce process by being more likely to sign a prenuptial agreement before walking down the aisle.

How to make a co-parenting plan work well

When Virginia parents go through a divorce, children can suffer emotionally and mentally due to changes in schedule and changes in their relationships with their parents. Because of this, many parents opt for a co-parenting arrangement, an option that allows kids to have regular access to both parents. This can be beneficial for the kids, but only if the two parents agree to work together and provide stability and security for the youngest members of the family.

Is it possible to avoid contention in the divorce process?

The end of a marriage is a difficult decision, and sometimes, these challenging feelings can get in the way of trying to work together toward a settlement. In some cases, a Virginia divorce process is so contentious that children feel like they've been put in the middle of their parents' battles, which can lead to stress and confusion for the youngest members of the family. Experts say they have noticed it becoming more common for children and even adults to struggle with mental health issues because of this.

When older couples get divorced, their finances can suffer

Divorce is a process that affects everything in an individual's life, from how much time he or she will be able to spend with a child to long-term savings. It's normal to worry about how the decision to get divorced will impact retirement and future financial stability. This is particularly true for Virginia couples who are older, nearing retirement age or who have been married for a few decades.
