What are the signs kids might not be coping well from a divorce?

The end of a marriage is a stressful and heartbreaking time for most people. Adults can have difficulty adjusting to divorced life. It can be even harder for Ohio children, who must come to terms with their parents no longer loving each other and now living apart. Not surprisingly, your children may have a difficult time coping.

Wives earning more than husbands may make divorce more likely

When women earn more than their husbands in Ohio, the results can be devastating. In fact, this holds true virtually everywhere in the U.S., though not in all marriages. According to MarketWatch, 38% of American wives make more money than their husbands. Women also earn half or more of the household income in one-third of all couples living together in America, married or not.

The impact of a dispute and your child’s education

Getting a divorce can be extremely challenging for parents. In fact, the various issues that can arise during a divorce may prompt some parents to stay in a marriage even though it is toxic and potentially harmful to their emotional, financial or even physical well-being. Aside from many of the common ways in which divorce affects families, such as custody disputes and financial concerns, many other issues may need to be reviewed by parents at all stages of the divorce process, especially when it comes to custody and the potential ways in which this major change could affect a child’s education.

Why a trust is a great estate planning tool for divorced parents

When you marry someone, they stand to inherit a significant portion of your assets under Ohio law if you die during the marriage. Your last will likely talks about splitting the assets between your spouse and your children, and you may also use your will to name a guardian for your kids in the event that something happens to you. While that may be sufficient for married couples, needs change when you divorce.
