Does your marriage qualify for annulment?

Marriages can end several ways, and not only through death or divorce. In some cases, it is possible and advantageous to have a marriage annulled instead of going through the divorce process. If annulled, a marriage is literally removed from legal history, completely canceling the marriage and legal effects of the marriage. However, this is only possible in a few specific circumstances.

Did your divorce decree omit your name change?

After negotiating a divorce settlement, property division agreement, and any child custody or permitting agreements as a part of your divorce, it is easy to let some of the other related details slip through the cracks. One such detail that commonly escapes the attention of divorcing spouses until after everything finalizes is the matter of changing one's name.

Child custody and prenuptial agreements

Prenuptial agreements are one of the most under-appreciated, under-utilized legal tools that couples have have available today. When used correctly, these agreements relieve many of tensions that threaten to destroy marriages and strengthen them for the long haul. Unfortunately, their negative reputation arises out of the ways that some people may attempt to use them unfairly. One particular area of family law that prenuptial agreements generally do not include is child custody terms.

You can choose to have a respectful divorce

Divorce is a strange process, occurring at the intersection of one of the most personal experiences two people can share and many of the most complicated legal issues in the couple's lives. Because of this strange combination of tensions, it is almost always an emotionally taxing experience.

Does child custody have tax implications?

As you and your child's other parent work toward a fair child custody agreement, be sure to address how the way you divide your parenting responsibilities and privileges may affect your respective tax returns. Many parents, especially if they are both first-timers at parenting, do not realize how many exemptions and credits child custody offers.
