Divorce-a-phobes may make breaking up hard to do

Things are different today for couples who have decided to call it quits. Couples in Pennsylvania who wish to divorce will find the process much less complicated today, and there is less stigma attached to conscious uncoupling. Yet there are still some people who can be labeled divorce-a-phobes, and they don't miss a beat when it comes to shaming those who are divorced. But the culprit may actually be marriage.

Proper financial planning is critical following divorce

Dissolving a marriage generally is not a pleasant process, no matter how amicable the two divorcing spouses may be. After all, divorce can impact a couple both emotionally and financially. The financial aspect of divorce can especially be unsettling for those nearing retirement in Pennsylvania.

Finances can be source of confusion during divorce

The marital breakup process can be overwhelming due to its many moving parts. Tackling the financial aspect of the divorce may especially be intimidating. However, a few tips may help those going through divorce in Pennsylvania to navigate this type of family law proceeding with confidence.

Uncontested divorce may be wise move in certain cases

The worst-case scenario during the dissolution of a marriage is for two spouses in Pennsylvania to be at odds about virtually every aspect of the marital breakup. On the flip side, the best-case scenario is for both parties to be in agreement about the divorce. In this situation, they may want to file for an uncontested divorce.

Protecting assets critical during divorce

The dissolution of a marriage is not an easy process no matter how amicably it may start out. Aside from the children, one of the biggest sources of conflict during divorce is the couple's finances. A couple of tips may help those going through divorce in Pennsylvania to protect themselves financially before the divorce process even begins.

Dividing debt may be challenging during divorce

The dissolution of a marriage in Pennsylvania is not an easy process by any means. After all, two spouses essentially have to learn how to untangle their intertwined emotional and financial lives -- a process that can quickly become messy. A particular aspect of divorce that often leads to conflict is the division of debts, namely auto and student loan debt.

Divorce may have significant impact on retirement

Retirement is typically envisioned as a life stage during which a couple in Pennsylvania can finally enjoy some time to themselves. They no longer have to tend to the children, and getting up to go to work is no longer necessary. However, this together time is not always what married couples want if they have differences they cannot reconcile. Instead, some have divorce in mind.

Prenuptial agreement may offer protection during divorce

When two people get married, they generally believe that their marriage will work out. Unfortunately, life does not always go as planned. In the event that divorce is unavoidable down the road, putting together a prenuptial agreement may be a wise move for couples who have yet to walk down the aisle in PA.

Cryptocurrencies can make divorce more complex

During a marital breakup in Pennsylvania, one of the most hotly contested matters is property division. Specifically, some spouses may feel that the other party is hiding assets from them. With the increasing popularity of virtual currencies, such as bitcoin, hiding assets during divorce has indeed become much easier than ever before.

5 signs that your marriage might be over

All marriages are going to have their ups and downs. While some couples can work through their problems and come out with stronger relationships, others just were not meant to be. If you feel like you are in a continuous loop and you and your spouse do not seem to be making any headway when it comes to working out your problems, you may be thinking about divorce.
