3 ways to protect your mental health during a divorce

Divorce is a messy and emotionally challenging time. There are many adjustments to make, seemingly all at once, and stress levels run high. This doesn't mean that it has to take over your life and wreck your mental health. Here are three strategies you -- and your children -- can use to stay as centered as possible during your divorce.

What can a divorce concierge do for you?

When many people divorce, they suddenly find themselves having to deal with things that they never gave a thought to before because their spouse handled them. That can be frightening -- particularly if you were married for a long time and haven't lived alone in many years (or ever).

Remember your insurance policies during your divorce

People going through a divorce often feel overwhelmed by the number of changes in their lives. Many neglect to consider the changes they need to make to their insurance policies. However, if you don't make the necessary adjustments to your policies, you could be jeopardizing your financial well-being.

Surprising things that divorced single dads learn

As Father's Day approaches, it seems like a good time to look at the unexpected challenges that divorced dads face. Whether you have primary custody of your children or you share custody with your ex, you will be spending a significant amount of time as a single dad.

Jail time to increase for parents refusing to pay child support

Raising children is expensive, and it's helpful when both parents can contribute financially to ensure their kids have the things and care that they need. If the parents' relationship ends, the court will usually order the noncustodial parent -- that is, the parent who doesn't have physical custody -- to pay child support on a monthly basis.

What happens when billionaire New York art collectors divorce?

Divorces among the wealthiest people in New York City can leave couples fighting over a multitude of assets besides considerable amounts of money -- homes, airplanes, cars, boats and in some cases, valuable art. The last of these is expected to take center stage in the split of real estate developer Henry Macklowe and his wife Linda.

New York case could set precedent for gay parents' custody rights

While lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have made great strides in gaining legal rights, child custody can still be a problematic issue for gay parents. In many gay families, even though both partners or spouses are parenting a child together, only the person who's the biological parent is actually recognized as a parent under the law. That can leave the other parent with no custody or visitation rights should the couple break up or even if the biological parent dies.
