  • In attempting to arrive at child custody arrangements that create the least disruption possible, many divorcing couples are agreeing to what is known as “bird-nesting.” Bird-nesting involves having the child or children continuing to live in the family home while each parent revolves in and out of the house, much as birds depart and return to the nest where their eggs and young rest. Whatever parent has custody at a given moment lives in and manages the house, while the other parent lives in a separate dwelling: the two can either share a single “away” residence and rotate in and …Read More ➡

  • Medical bills are one of the top reasons why Americans file for bankruptcy. In fact, a recent report indicated that 643,000 Americans file for medical bankruptcy each year. The good news is that medical bills are considered unsecured debt, and therefore a successful bankruptcy filing will discharge all of your unpaid medical bills. The bad news is that bankruptcy can have a significant impact on your credit rating. That doesn’t mean that it’s not the right answer, but it does mean that you should investigate your other options to determine whether bankruptcy is your best choice. Options for Medical Debt …Read More ➡

  • When it comes to how divorces are managed, a lot has changed in the last several years. Looking back as recently as 30 years ago, it was assumed that Mom always got custody, and Dad would have them once a week for dinner and every other weekend. In the last two decades, there has been a notable shift, with both parents wanting to share equal time with their children. This has led to the arrival of the 50/50 custody split. Though this type of child custody arrangement sounds good on paper, once you start to put it into action it …Read More ➡

  • In the state of Pennsylvania, alimony is a needs-based payment that is provided by one spouse to another after a divorce is final. Its intention is to allow a financially disadvantaged (or less advantaged) spouse to continue to live in a lifestyle similar to what they had been enjoying during the marriage, particularly where one spouse earns significantly more than the other. Alimony is frequently provided when a marriage has been in place for a long time and one partner stayed home to raise children, or whose income was substantially less. The goal is to provide a bridge to parity, …Read More ➡

  • To say that negotiating child custody over the holidays is hard is a study in understatement: it is traditionally one of the hardest and most emotional aspects of divorce. Making matters worse is the fact that once you’ve gotten through hammering out the details in a way that is amenable to both parties, you then need to look at the issue of what happens when the holidays roll around. You need to anticipate special events such as birthdays, time off from school and national, traditional or religious holidays, otherwise you are likely to find parents and extended family are cheated …Read More ➡

  • If you’re a senior citizen and your medical bills are beginning to pile up, you’re not alone. The high cost of medications and care have led to over 25 percent of Americans struggling to pay off medical debts, with 40 percent of those facing medical debt hearing from debt collectors. The idea of struggling financially because of a medical problem feels remarkably unfair, especially if you have worked hard and been financially prudent your whole life and had been looking forward to retirement. Medical debt forces so many seniors to consider filing for bankruptcy that it’s led to a new …Read More ➡

  • The process of divorce can be painful and at times it feels endless: at the end, when all the decisions have been finalized and the paperwork signed and delivered, it can represent a tremendous relief. Still, circumstances can change, and when that happens it may become necessary or desirable to make changes to the terms that were originally negotiated and agreed to. Though the main focus of the divorce decree, dissolving the marriage itself, is irrevocable without seeking a new marriage, the terms regarding custody, child support and spousal support can be modified if a significant change warrants it. The …Read More ➡

  • Summer is over – at least as far as your local school district is concerned. Whether your own children are back to hitting the books or you’re just seeing the steady stream of school buses that have returned to the roadway, you need to take a moment to assess whether you’ve gotten lazy in your safe driving habits. Not only do you want to make sure you play no part in any type of tragic accident you also want to avoid traffic violations during the back-to-school season. There are certain driving rules that are essentially tied to the school season, …Read More ➡

  • It’s conventional wisdom among those who have been through a divorce that every family breakup is difficult, but the most difficult are those in which parents battle each other over child custody. These issues test the mettle of even the most experienced judges, and if not resolved in a way that limits the children’s exposure to animosity, can end up doing long-term harm. But while more and more courts across the land work to minimize family stress and to work toward what is in the best interests of the children, a new issue has been increasingly raised – who keeps …Read More ➡

  • One of the most frustrating aspects of pursuing higher education is the cost: the price of undergraduate and graduate degrees continues to rise, and more and more students have no choice but to take on student loan debt in order to achieve their goals. Though student loans may enable educational opportunity, it also saddles graduates with debt that can seem insurmountable: the average student that graduated in 2016 carried over $37,000 in debt, and even former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama had over $180,000 in educational debt until his first book was published.   If you are …Read More ➡
