Divorce can affect retirement benefits

Understanding Social Security benefits is an important part of retirement planning. These payments can be affected by divorce, so a person in Wyoming will likely want to understand just what might happen if they choose to stay married, get divorced or remarry. When the person chooses to file for benefits also affects the Social Security payout.

Can certain factors predict divorce?

Some people wonder exactly what it is that makes a marriage last. Are there certain predictors that can indicate whether a particular relationship is headed toward divorce? And given those factors, do they truly matter when it is time to dissolve the marriage? Every marriage is unique to the individuals that make up the relationship, but people in Wyoming may be wondering about factors that indicate a greater likelihood for divorce. 

Want to avoid litigation? There is a better way to divorce.

The end of your marriage will be a difficult process for every member of the family, but it can be especially difficult for your children. In order to minimize the negative impact of this process for everyone, some Wyoming couples choose to keep their divorce out of court. By keeping your divorce out of the courtroom and around the negotiating table, you may be able to ease the complications of this difficult process and come to a final order that works well for everyone.

After a divorce comes time to renew

Sometimes in a marriage a person makes sacrifices they later regret. After the end of the marriage, an opportunity presents itself for individuals to relaunch their life in a fresh new direction. In Wyoming, a person at the end of his or her marriage may be looking for some ideas on how to best move forward. A recent news story gives some suggestions that some individuals have found helpful on their new single journey. 

A new theory about divorce in families

Researchers have been trying to figure out the reasons why humans do what they do for centuries. As new science emerges, theories change, but there will always be debate.

Choosing a divorce attorney

At the end of a marriage, it is likely that a person has many loose ends to gather up and issues to settle. In Wyoming, one of those issues is choosing the right divorce attorney. It's best to avoid simply choosing the first lawyer in the phonebook, or the one recommended by a family friend. Knowing what to expect from an attorney can help an individual choose the one that is most compatible with the person's needs. 

First steps when facing divorce

Ending a marriage will usually need to be handled strategically as well as emotionally. In Wyoming, when facing a divorce, there are a few important first steps to take before signing any agreements and moving on with one's life. A person will need to get his or her house in order, metaphorically speaking. Divorce, when approached in an informed way, can be handled so that any frustration regarding the transition is minimized. 

Social Security rules ready for a number of divorce situations

All relationships are unique. That uniqueness extends also to divorce circumstances. The specific circumstances of one's divorce can lead to different outcomes for one's Social Security benefits. Luckily, the Social Security Administration had anticipated the wide variety of life circumstances and has developed rules that govern the various after-marriage situations that can apply to Wyoming residents. 

Who gets the season tickets to Broncos games in divorce?

Many Wyoming residents are avid sports fans, especially when the Denver Broncos are concerned. In fact, some people hold season tickets and travel the four or so hours it may take to attend games in person. One wouldn't think something like tickets to football games would be a source of marital problems; however, when divorce occurs, it's assets like these that often lead to contentious property division battles in court. Of course, if children are involved, custody, support and visitation matters may be challenging as well.

Divorce reaching new heights of social acceptance

Modern views are making way for new thoughts about partnership. A recent Gallup poll shows that most Americans do not object to divorce on moral grounds. Even unlikely groups, such as older people, married people and the religious are changing their views on divorce. Opinions on the negative effects of divorce have softened, in Wyoming and all across the country.
