How to avoid real estate mistakes during a divorce

One of the biggest challenges divorcing couples face in Pennsylvania is deciding what to do with a co-owned family home. Some options include selling the home and splitting the profit, allowing one spouse to live in the home with the children, having one spouse buy the other out, or nesting.

How forensic accountants can help entrepreneurs during a divorce

Pennsylvania entrepreneurs who are considering divorce may benefit from thoroughly familiarizing themselves with the valuation of their business. In many cases, their business may be an even more significant asset than their home. If their spouse is looking to get a piece of the company they created, the entrepreneur should have clear in mind potential future growth and the liabilities of their business before going into divorce negotiations.

Birdnesting is an option for transitioning children after divorce

Pennsylvania parents who have settled on divorce may face a variety of challenges when making the transition to a new life. However, transitioning can be extra hard on children when custody is split. Because at least one parent will likely be moving out of the family residence, children may be uprooted suddenly and thrust into unfamiliar living conditions, thereby causing an upset in routine and security. In order to address these concerns, some divorcing or divorced parents are turning to an arrangement known as 'birdnesting" for help. Birdnesting is a temporary arrangement where children remain in the family home while parents rotate time spent living there.

Post-divorce holidays can be successful with planning

Navigating the holiday season after family separation or divorce can be challenging in terms of both stress and logistics. Pennsylvania parents who are dealing with a changed family dynamic for the first time or who are simply committed to doing better can take solace in the knowledge that countless families have been down the same path. Having a successful holiday season requires focus and commitment from parents, but with teamwork, it is a very achievable goal.

Co-parenting can take many forms

Pennsylvania parents on the cusp of breaking up are likely to be concerned about the impact a split will have on both the children and the individual parenting time breakdown of a court-ordered parenting arrangement. By far, the most successful parenting model is a collaborative co-parenting arrangement in which both parents set aside individual differences to focus on the best interests of the children, regardless of personal feelings or hostilities toward each other. Unfortunately, some parents unable to put acrimony behind them for the benefit of their offspring or to respect the role of the other parent in the lives of children.

Child support and custody during divorce

Parents in Pennsylvania may go through difficult and emotionally challenging times when they decide to divorce, especially if both partners are particularly close to the children. Transitioning from a full-time to part-time parent can be complex, especially when the partners can't come to an agreement over child custody and parenting time. When the matter winds up in court without a negotiated agreement, both parents may feel as if they are not receiving a fair shake. While mothers often feel they are not taken seriously, fathers may worry about being subject to gender bias.

Certain personality traits might make divorce more likely

A number of relationship gurus, psychologists and divorce attorneys point to certain personality traits that make some people more susceptible to divorce. A Pennsylvania spouse might want to be aware of these traits, which include materialism, a fragile ego, selfishness, narcissism and catastrophizing. The results of studies have indicated that in a marriage where one or both spouses are prone to materialism, wanting more or buying more, the marriage has a higher chance of ending.
