  • 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.

  • When divorced or divorcing parents are working out their custody schedule, the school year schedule requires special attention and accommodation. When dividing visitation and responsibilities for kids that are out on break or too young for school, the calendar can be based on what works best for parents’ work schedules. But as soon as school comes into the picture, everything changes: pick-up and drop-off needs to adjust to the school day and the bus schedule; if both parents work then you’ll need to make arrangements for aftercare or to get the kids to their after-school activities and extracurriculars; homework needs …Read More ➡

  • Every divorce is different. Some couples simply recognize their incompatibility and part company on pleasant terms, while others carry so much anger that their antagonism towards each other gets in the way of what they most want – to be rid of each other. When couples are operating in an emotional, hostile state, reasonable communication is usually the first thing to break down, and that can lead to one of two outcomes. Either:   They end up doing all of their communicating through their attorneys, which quickly leads to enormous legal fees for both of them, or They speak to …Read More ➡

  • Students graduating from college or graduate schooling with a mountain of student loan debt has become all too common as tuitions continue to rise in the United States. The average amount of debt that a college student graduated with in the class of 2017 was $39,400, and that number is expected to climb. That level of debt can take decades to pay off, and when you combine that level of indebtedness with divorce, things can get extremely complicated.  Though many people think that student debt somehow stands apart from other types of debt, the truth is that it is treated …Read More ➡

  •   In every household with children, the arrival of summer (and the end of the school year) brings a certain amount of disruption. Though parents’ schedules and obligations remain the same, the kids suddenly no longer need to wake up early for buses or drop-offs. Homework is no longer a consideration, and neither are after-school activities. For divorced parents, the summer vacation from school can represent either a blessing or a curse, depending on how your normal visitation schedule is structured. A parent who normally has responsibility for school days suddenly has a lot of time to fill, and possibly …Read More ➡

  • There are many events that can lead to people filing for bankruptcy.

Getting a college degree is considered a necessity in today’s job market, but the costs of earning that …Read More ➡

  • Divorces are rarely easy or free of conflict, and this is particularly true in divorces that involve children. One of the most challenging issues that families negotiating the terms of their divorce face is how best to address shared custody in a contested divorce. The underlying philosophy of the court is that parents need to arrive at a solution that is in the best interests of their child or children, but when tensions are running high and one or both spouses are feeling hurt or angry, there can be a quick turn to vindictiveness and use of the children as …Read More ➡

  • Filing for bankruptcy has such a negative connotation that many people who would benefit from the process are hesitant, concerned about their reputation and their ability to be financially secure in the future. The truth is that recovering from a bankruptcy filing is possible. But, to make sure that you don’t get into trouble again, you need to have a plan that begins on the day that you make your decision, and you need to stick to it. Though the record of your bankruptcy will remain on your credit report for 10 years that doesn’t mean that you will never …Read More ➡

  • Going through a divorce is an extremely challenging and emotional experience. Not only are you dealing with the end of a relationship that you had thought was going to last forever, but you are suddenly at the mercy of laws and processes that are unfamiliar to you. One option for dealing with the many conflicts that arise in divorce is to work with a divorce mediator, who is trained to facilitate resolution in a non-adversarial way.
