Breaking up with a narcissistic spouse

Married couples find themselves in court moving forward with a divorce for countless reasons. Some are the result of an unexpected incident, such as a one-off occurrence of domestic violence, while other couples break up over longstanding challenges that they have been dealing with throughout the course of their marriage. For example, some people may not be compatible with respect to their personalities, such as someone who is very narcissistic. If your spouse displays signs of narcissism, it may be helpful to take this into consideration during the divorce process. It is important to avoid being judgmental in life, but there are times when you may need to pay special attention to these details, especially if you will be involved in a custody dispute, for example.

When children disagree with a divorce

Divorce can be a tricky process to approach for all sorts of reasons. Often, parents have uncertainty about certain aspects of the divorce process, such as how child custody will be split up or some other family law matter. Divorce can be incredibly stressful and for parents who have children, it can be even more difficult. Not only do child custody and child support matters often come into play, but some parents may even have a hard time discussing their divorce with their child. After all, many children do not ever want to see their parents split up.

Ending your marriage as a newlywed

While planning a marriage and in the days after the ceremony, many couples envision spending the rest of their lives with each other. However, various things can go wrong, and some marriages do not work out. In fact, some people decide to split up as newlyweds, and you should not feel trapped in a marriage just because your family spent a lot of money on the wedding or you feel like you have to stick it out even though you know that the marriage will not work out. For example, some people may see a different side of their spouse once married, whether a couple is simply incompatible or domestic violence is involved.

Discipline mistakes to avoid after divorce

Disciplining kids can be difficult enough under ideal circumstances. It can be even tougher for Milwaukee parents who are divorced, especially when navigating issues regarding custody and visitation. The following are a few of the common mistakes divorced parents make when it comes to discipline and how you can best avoid them.

Divorce and the approach of the holiday season

For many families, the holidays are a time when everyone comes together, and people catch up with loved ones. The holidays can also bring up various stressful issues, and this is especially true for a couple that is in the middle of a divorce. Some people who have already broken up with their spouse may still attend a holiday celebration together, for various reasons, while others may avoid relatives during the holiday season because of their divorce. Some people who are in the early stages of working through a divorce are unsure whether or not they should visit their in-laws during the holidays.

What should I know about prenuptial agreements?

While no one wants to imagine getting divorced before they’re even married, the sad fact is that many couples who are now madly in love will end up divorced sometime in the future. If you personally own a large amount of property and assets, this could mean losing things that are rightfully yours if you don't have a solid prenuptial agreement in place. Forbes explains how prenups work so you can determine whether this option is right for you.
