Keeping the holidays for the children post-divorce

The holiday season, for many in the Twin Cities, is a time for family. However, families are complicated, particularly if a couple is divorced. And, the more complicated one's family situation is, the more complicated the holidays become. This is especially true if children are involved. Will the child eat turkey with mom and leave cookies and milk out for Santa with dad? Will the child try to split each holiday between each parent? All of this can be a headache and a heartache during what is already an emotional time of year.

What will one's financial picture look like post-divorce?

Minnesota residents may be surprised to hear that since 1990, the divorce rate for couples over 50-years-old has doubled. This is especially significant because many of those couples are nearing retirement and have built up a significant amount of assets. There are ways, however, to preserve one's finances after a divorce.

Attorneys in Minnesota can help parents understand child support

After parents in a Minnesota divorce, they still both share the duty of providing for the child financially. If the child resides with one parent, that parent is providing for the child financially by giving the child food, clothing, shelter and paying for the many incidental expenses that come with a well-rounded childhood. In addition, the noncustodial parent also contributes to the raising of the child through child support.

Birds-nesting: a unique child custody arrangement

Parents in Minnesota divorce may decide that they want to share joint custody of their child. If this is the case, they may assume that the child will have two homes, one with each parent. However, some find that the constant back-and-forth between households is hard on the child and hard on the parents. Therefore, some may choose a more unique child custody arrangement: birds-nesting.
