Divorce and family pets

 The end of a marriage can be tough and emotional for a plethora of reasons, especially when couples have kids and/or a significant amount of property. We have covered many of the different reasons why the end of a marriage can be tricky, but there are far more issues that some couples have to work through. For example, some people have concerns about being unable to see a family pet after they split up with their spouse, such as a beloved dog or another animal companion.

Reviewing some other benefits of mediation

When it comes to the divorce process, there are different options available for couples to consider. For example, some people head to court and move forward with a bitter, contentious divorce, while others are able to work things out with a mediator. If you and your marital partner are considering divorce, it would be wise to look at the advantages of mediation and consider all of your options. There are a number of reasons why divorce mediation is advantageous and while it may not be for everyone, many people have benefited from taking this route.

Bracing for the financial impact of ending your marriage

People think of many consequences when it comes to divorce, such as losing a custody dispute or the family home. From strong emotions to major life changes, divorce can be a difficult process to work through. However, the financial impact of bringing your marriage to an end should not be overlooked. There are multiple reasons why divorce can be tricky from a financial standpoint, such as obligations to pay alimony and child support. Moreover, property division can be difficult as well.

Cemetery plots and other odd assets for property division

You and your spouse may have decided to end a marriage during which you have acquired significant assets, and you are dreading the property division phase. It is not always necessary to take your differences over property distribution to court. You and your spouse may be able to come to an agreement that will only have to receive court approval, circumventing a contentious battle. To make ending your marriage less difficult and stressful, remember that there are options such as mediation or collaborative divorce that you may want to explore.

Unpaid child support and your tax refund

In a recent blog post, our law office discussed how back child support can interfere with travel plans and leave one unable to obtain a passport. However, it is vital to point out that there are many other ways in which a non-custodial parent struggling with delinquent child support payments could be adversely affected. For example, they may have their tax refund intercepted. If you are unable to make child support payments due to financial problems and owe a certain amount of back child support, you may face additional financial complications when the tax refund you were expecting is intercepted.

How can I find assets my spouse may have hidden?

Going through a divorce in Wisconsin is hard enough, but couples dealing with a lot of assets sometimes have an even harder job ahead of them. If you suspect your spouse is not being forthcoming when it comes to declaring assets, there are places you can look and ways to determine if this is the case.
