Factors to consider prior to getting a divorce

Many couples in Pennsylvania have a hard time figuring out when to move forward with marital dissolution if they cannot reconcile their differences. Should they jump into divorce right away, or should they hold off on it and wait to see if things improve? Here's a rundown on important factors to consider prior to moving forward with divorce.

Pennsylvania splits assets equitably during divorce

When dissolving your marriage, you may understandably be worried about how the process will impact you financially. This is true whether you have a large number of assets to split or have just a few assets. Here is a look at how the state of Pennsylvania treats assets during the property division process in a divorce proceeding.

Social media platforms impact marriage, divorce

Social media platforms are becoming increasingly important parts of people's lives, including their marriages. Researchers recently said that these platforms are, in fact, causing divorce in many situations. In addition, they are making the divorce process trickier. Let's take a peek at how social media is affecting marriage and divorce in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

Goal of saving money may lead some couples to divorce

Marital dissolution can easily occur in Pennsylvania if two spouses have differences that they simply cannot reconcile. As an example, in many situations, two spouses may not agree on each other's spending habits. However, the mutual desire to generate cost savings may actually motivate two individuals to get a divorce in other situations.

Divorce tips may help to make this process simpler

The marital breakup process in Pennsylvania can certainly be tough financially, but it can be especially challenging emotionally. This is particularly the case for the parents of young children who are going through divorce. Fortunately, some tips might help with making this life-altering process more palatable.

Financial assessment important when going through divorce

Getting divorced is never an easy experience from an emotional standpoint. However, it can also be challenging from a financial standpoint, and this is true whether a couple has few assets or many high-value assets. Here are a couple of important moves to make to protect oneself financially when going through  divorce in Pennsylvania.

Getting a new financial advisor a wise move following divorce

Getting divorced makes it possible for two married individuals in Pennsylvania to finally break free from each other and move on with their lives. However, research shows that many women still decide to stick with the same financial advisor that the other party used prior to the divorce. In reality, it may be beneficial to start fresh with one's own financial advisor.

Tips may help with navigating emotional process of divorce

When an individual in Pennsylvania decides to get divorced, it's natural to experience a range of emotions. A part of the person may feel relieved and ready to move on with his or her own life. At the same time, the individual might feel unsettled, as divorce is inherently a life-changing event. However, a couple of tips may help those going through divorce to feel confident heading into the process.

Prenuptial agreement can make divorce process smoother

Younger individuals today are waiting until they are older to marry, and in the meantime, they are accumulating large amounts of wealth in many cases. In other cases, they are accumulating large amounts of debt. For these reasons, it is a good idea for people in Pennsylvania to create prenuptial agreements before they get married in the event that divorce is inevitable for them down the road.

Understanding finances important before seeking divorce

The process of breaking up with a spouse can certainly have a major impact on an individual emotionally. However, divorce can be just as impactful on the individual's personal finances, especially if he or she happens to be a parent. For this reason, becoming familiar with one's finances is critical prior to seeking a divorce in Pennsylvania.
