What you should know about retirement accounts and divorce?

Couples that are going through a divorce and have money invested in retirement plans will typically be required by the court to share these assets between them.

In these situations, having a proper understanding of the rules that govern asset division in a divorce may be helpful.

Understanding parental alienation in divorce cases

It is important for a couple going through a divorce or separation to always make sure that any and all decisions they make leading up to and effectively ending the relationship must maintain the best interest of the children in mind when kid are involved. As long as there is no abuse, there is wide consensus that in any child custody situation children who maintain a healthy, nurturing and loving relationship with both parents are much better off than children who do not. Sadly, oftentimes a parent who is going through a particularly contentious separation may allow their emotions to get the better of them by willfully sabotaging the relationship that their children have with the other parent. This is commonly referred to as parental alienation.
