Designing a plan to raise children after divorce

30116092_S.jpgMissouri parents who are getting divorced need to come up with a plan for raising their children based on custody and visitation agreements. While designing such a plan can have its challenges, there are some factors to consider that might help parents through the process.

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. According to a study conducted by the Center for Retirement Research, households that have not undergone a divorce have a net financial wealth 30 percent higher than similar households that have been through a divorce.

Why older people are ending their marriages

35562415_S (1).jpgA gray divorce is one that occurs when a person is 50 or older. The rate of gray divorce in St. Louis and throughout the country is increasing even as divorce rates among other age groups is stabilizing. However, there are many different reasons that could explain this phenomenon. First, the number of people who are 50 and older is larger now than it was in 1990, and that number is projected to grow in the future.

Child support creates a divide for many custodial parents

31019964_S.jpgThe child support paid out to single parents may not be sufficient depending on the audience questioned. The U.S. Census Bureau provided a snapshot of child support statistics in a report called "Custodial Mothers and Fathers and Their Child Support." Single parents in Missouri may be divided on the fairness of child support payments required of them.

Divorcing parents can make use of creative schedules

40593588_S.jpgWhen Missouri parents divorce, figuring out a parenting plan can be both emotionally painful and logistically difficult. Each parent is often accustomed to having as much time as possible with their children, and when the marriage comes to an end, it can be complex to schedule a plan in which time with the children is shared between the parents' homes. Creating a child custody or visitation schedule can be further complicated by parents' work schedules, especially when both are engaged in full-time employment.

Study finds housework disputes can end marriages

17798078_S.jpgFighting over housework could be the trigger for a divorce for some Missouri couples. Harvard Business School did a study that found that a quarter of divorced couples said housework disagreements were the main reason they split up. The study also found that if couples hired a cleaning service, they were more likely to stay together.
