Back-to-school plans after a divorce

Pennsylvania parents who decide to divorce may be concerned about their kids heading into the new school year. A new academic year can be an exciting and stressful time for families no matter their circumstances, as kids generally look forward to new classes, teachers and friends. However, when children head back to school for the first time since their parents' divorce, additional anxiety could enter the picture, particularly as children get adjusted to traveling between their parents' homes. Parents can take some actions to support their kids during the back-to-school season and throughout the year.

What you need to know about equitable distribution

Even if you were only married a short time, splitting your life from your spouse's life is hard. You share a home, money, possibly children and a long list of assets from retirement funds to teaspoons. Making decisions about who gets the sports car and who gets the washing machine can lead to serious arguments. 

Seeking a fair child support agreement

Couples who are going through a divorce or a separation in Westmorland County and surrounding areas and who have children should keep a few things in mind regarding child support. The court must establish the relationship that is present between a child and the parents. The paternity of the child is often the most difficult if there is any question on either side, but a paternity test can be given to determine the correct paternity of the child so that support can be ordered.

Creating and maintaining a living will

Your health and wellbeing are top priorities and you have the right to determine what kind of medical care you'd like to consider. Unfortunately, it isn't always possible to make those decisions once your health is in decline, so making them sooner rather than later may be a plan worth considering.

Financial concerns for 'gray divorces'

In Pennsylvania and across the country, more people are choosing to divorce at an older age. The divorce rate for Americans over 50 has gone up by over 200 percent over the past 20 years and continues to rise. As the rate of these "gray divorces" increases, more senior ex-spouses are dealing with financial issues. Chief among these is the division of retirement plans.
