Important financial aspects of divorce

There are a number of financial elements Missouri couples need to keep in mind when they are ending their marriage. For example, since alimony payments for divorces finalized after the end of 2018 will no longer be tax-deductible by the payer or counted as taxable income by the recipient, some couples may want to try to wrap up their divorces quickly. However, people should not rush to meet this deadline since the cost of not taking enough time could be even higher.

Pediatrician sets guidelines for divorcing parents

In Missouri and across the United States, divorce can be a difficult and emotional experience. For children, a divorce may mean separation from a parent, a change in routine and a new residence or school. Combined, these changes may create distress in a child that can manifest in behavioral changes, emotional outbursts and poor performance in school. In order to handle these changes as a divorcing parent and equip children with the tools needed to persevere, a nationally recognized pediatrician and author has recommended a set of guidelines for parents to follow.

Divorce and retirement

64799483_S.jpgMinnesota residents who get a divorce should be aware that the process can have a negative impact on their finances. Individuals who have been divorced have a higher chance of depleting their assets during retirement than people who have not been divorced.
