Avoiding the financial pitfalls of a grey divorce

Some couples who are unhappy are deciding to end their marriages even if they have been married for many years. Divorce over the age of 50 -- or grey divorce as it is known -- is becoming more common today. In fact, overall divorce rates are declining in the country except for couples in this age range. Arizona spouses in this situation may wish to sidestep the possible financial ramifications of divorce later in life by avoiding certain mistakes.

Divorce and the age of social media

Social media has become a ubiquitous part of modern society. Certainly, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other popular online communities can make communication with friends and family easy and fun, but for persons going through a stressful situation, such as divorce, social media may create stress and feelings of failure. If an Arizona resident is considering divorce, he or she may want to think about how to handle social media during the process. 

Skills for coping in an Arizona divorce

Every family is unique and most Arizona families encounter challenges in their daily lives that require coping skills to help them rise above and move forward. Divorce definitely falls under that category. In fact, it is often one of the most trying situations a family can experience.

Protecting one's credit in divorce

Money is often an area of concern for many Arizona couples. When it comes to the decision to divorce, it can become even more of a concern. As expenses increase, income usually remains the same. In order to avoid problems, one will want to take specific steps to protect his or her credit.

Advanced technology can help avoid divorce stress

When Arizona married couples decide to sever their ties, those who have children together often encounter challenges regarding future co-parenting plans. Divorce can be stressful enough as it is without worrying about all the potential problems that might arise as two former spouses try to peacefully work together to raise children from separate households. The good news is that many people say that taking advantage of advanced technology has helped them keep stress to a minimum in their post-divorce parenting lives.

Divorce can have an impact on one's credit

Financial stability is important to most Arizona families. Whenever divorce enters the picture, financial stability can become a concern. Most husbands and wives have joint credit accounts ,which may include mortgages, car notes, credit cards and more. While who is responsible for which debts will be addressed in the divorce decree, creditors will look to both individuals for repayment of the joint debt.

What to do if you suspect your spouse is trying to hide assets

When Arizona spouses determine that their marriages are no longer sustainable, they typically choose from several options regarding how they plan to move forward in their relationships. Some seek professional counseling to provide guidance and support in troubled marriages. Others decide they would rather divorce than stay in an unhappy relationship.

Navigating divorce in the age of social media

Social media is an easy, popular way to stay in touch with others, meet new people, post pictures and much more. For many people, Facebook and other platforms are an important part of their social lives, which can add an extra layer of complication during divorce. For people who have significant portions of their lives online, it can be emotionally and technically challenging to divorce on social media as well.

Divorce and the holiday season
