Divorces: More common in these 2 months

Sometimes, it seems like everything is going wrong. If you're going through a divorce, you might think you're the only one struggling, but the truth is that many families go through what you are and come out of it with minimal damage. August is a busy time of year for divorces, so those who seek them need to have their information in order, so they can work with their attorneys on a swift resolution.

The costs of divorce and getting what you need out of your assets

A divorce can be a very expensive endeavor, which is why you should aim to get the most you can out of it. While emotions can come into play, it's important to look at divorce as a business transaction. If your divorce is one that centers around millions of dollars or more, you're in a position to lose or gain an immense amount of money.

What determines the amount and length of alimony payments?

Alimony isn't always awarded in divorces. However, when it is, it's to help bridge the gap between the couple's respective pay gaps and living arrangements. Bridge-the-gap awards generally do not last longer than two years. It can also be awarded as rehabilitative compensation, which is there to support the person receiving it until they can work and support themselves. Durational alimony lasts a specified amount of time. Permanent alimony generally lasts a lifetime or until a person remarries.
