Prenuptial or cohabitation agreements matter when you split up

Whether you are going to get married or just move in with your partner, it's a good idea to have a contract. You can opt for a prenuptial agreement before you get married or create a cohabitation agreement if you plan to live together as if you are a married couple.

Keep these tips in mind when you negotiate for assets in divorce

If you're going through a high-asset divorce, it's important to make sure you know your assets' worth and get what you deserve out of your marriage. While most people believe that negotiations will settle any issues in the divorce, there's no guarantee that the negotiations will lead to an outcome you necessarily agree with. That's why it's so important to work with a legal professional who can inform you on the facts you need to know.

Alimony: An important support for supportive spouses

Although you may not want to pay spousal support to your spouse upon divorce, it's important to recognize the purpose of it. Spousal support, also known as alimony, is awarded to help limit unfair economic effects of a divorce. For instance, if you have been the sole provider and your partner was a stay-at-home parent, then alimony may be paid to help your partner while finding a job or going back to school to start a new career. Alimony may also be awarded to help your spouse continue to live at the same standard that you do now.

Who gets custody? How can a court decide?

When deciding who gets custody of a child, there are lots of things to consider. The child's best interests are the primary concern, so parents need to consider that first. For instance, if the child's mother is always available during the day and the father is available on weekends, then a custody arrangement that works with that schedule will give the child time with both parents when they aren't busy.
