How can we tell our preschooler about divorce?

If you are the parent of a preschool-aged child in Nebraska and you and your spouse have decided to separate or get divorced, it is important for you to know how to communicate this change to your child. You will want to do this in a way that reassures your child and makes them feel safe and loved. The way to talk about divorce with a child who is three or four is very different than the way to talk with a child who is seven, eight or older.

Divorcing when you share a business

It is not uncommon for couples in Nebraska to go into business together. Some people even meet through work and may then choose to start their own company as they pursue their personal relationship at the same time. Whether a business was created before or after a couple got married, when the marriage breaks down, it is decision time for the co-owners and soon-to-be former spouses.

Pitfalls of social media use during divorce

When getting a divorce, many people in Nebraska might understandably look to strengthen connections with friends and family members. This might even include increasing communications on social media platforms. However, it is wise for divorcing spouses to take a cautious approach to what they post on these sites both during and after their divorce.

Business ownership and divorce

For many people in Nebraska who own and operate a business with their spouse, the ability to work together for the common family good with a trusted partner can be extremely rewarding. However, when the personal relationship between the owners goes south, the health and future of the business may be in jeopardy if the owners do not proactively make a plan on what to do with the business if they get divorced.

Modification of a divorce decree

Have you and your spouse in Nebraska decided that you can no longer remain married to each other? Maybe you have already instigated a divorce or maybe you have even come to what you believed was your final settlement agreement. Before you assume everything in your life is set in stone, it is a good idea to get some facts about how or when you might be able to make a change to a divorce agreement.

Grandparents and grandkids - relationships that count

Grandparents and their grandchildren often have special connections that live in memories forever. Sometimes divorce, adoption or other fluid situations put those relationships at risk, leaving the former generation to wonder about its place in the ones to follow. A Boston College study may encourage Nebraska families who face this situation.

Tax code changes and your divorce

If you and your spouse have been discussing filing for divorce in Nebraska, it could be very important for you to understand how the newly enacted tax code changes may impact the settlement choices you make as well as how the timing of your final settlement might impact your choices. As explained by the American Bar Association Journal, since 1942 people who have made spousal support payments have been able to deduct these payments from their federal income tax returns. That is going to change starting January 1, 2019.

How should I approach summer plans with my ex?

Even though it is still only springtime in Nebraska, it is not too soon for parents to be making plans for summer vacation. That last day of school is right around the corner and the more you can be prepared for the less structured time compared to when your kids are in school, the better. This is perhaps especially true when you and your former spouse have to figure out who has the kids when and what activities you will each share with them.

Managing divorce and bankruptcy together

Whether a couple in Nebraska contemplates divorce at the end of the year amid the holiday shopping season or at any other time, financial issues may well rear their heads as part of the marital troubles. Money is not simply something that married people fight about but it can be something that contributes to the end of the marriage. If the financial challenges are severe enough, consideration may be given to filing for bankruptcy as well as for divorce.

Can I keep my home when getting divorced?

While the holidays are a time of joy and celebration for many people, you may be one of the residents in Nebraska who is facing the tough decision about whether to end your marriage or stay in it. This choice is often faced at the holidays and when in the midst of decorating your home, the last thing you may want to think about is giving up your home if you get divorced. This feeling quite frequently leads spouses to work very hard to keep their homes.
