A new state law addresses pet custody

Your animals are essential to your family. They provide comfort, entertainment and probably occasional frustration, and the idea of parting with your beloved pet is distressing. Along with decisions about how to divide money, property and possessions, pet owners must decide what to do with their companion animals.

Prenups are on the rise. Here's why.

The prenup jokes have been around as long as there have been prenups. "What do you get for a woman who has everything? A prenup." A Hollywood divorce attorney once said a celebrity who doesn't draw up a prenuptial agreement needs a psychiatrist, not a lawyer.

A divorce don't: yelling in front of the children

Prior to the decision to file for divorce, many couples see an uptick in the number, duration and intensity of their arguments. Their emotions can lead to more frequent and more heated fights, that involve everything from bad language to physical violence. Studies have shown for years that domestic abuse in a home has an obviously detrimental impact on children, even if they themselves aren't necessarily the target of the abuse. Recent research indicates that the act of yelling at or around children could, in some ways, be just as detrimental.

Children of divorce find comfort in routine

Living between homes requires considerable adjustment for children whose parents have divorced. They will react to the situation differently according to their age, and parents must be prepared to deal with everything from tears and whining in younger children to sulking and outright defiance in adolescents. There are many ways you can make this new chapter in young lives easier, and one is to help smooth the transition between two homes. No matter where and with whom they are living, children need a daily routine, one to which they are accustomed, and this is something parents can provide as a team.
