How long you stay in school impacts divorce odds

Who pays taxes on alimony?

Alimony money gets taxed by the government, which is no surprise, but people often wonder who has to pay those taxes.

Married couples who are older than the age of 50 are more likely to get a divorce today than they were 20 years ago. In fact, their chances of divorce have doubled.

Avoid getting defensive when having your divorce discussion

After years of caustic arguments and having your spouse's anger and resentment directed at you, the decision has been made. You're going to end the marriage and go your separate ways.

However, there are some moments when, to anyone viewing the situation from the outside, getting a divorce should be an immediate and obvious course of action.

Find the right divorce lawyer by asking the right questions

When it comes to important events in life, it is always wise to plan and prepare. For example, if you are looking for a child care provider, you will probably want to have a conversation with your candidates before making your selection. This gives you insight into whether the caregiver you choose is a good match for your family's needs.

Stepparents risk losing contact with the kids after divorce
