Couples seeking divorce shouldn't forget about their taxes

When going through a divorce, Pennsylvania couples are faced with a broad range of decisions to make, as well as various properties and assets to divide. These decisions sometimes come all at once, and in a rather short amount of time. When a divorce is going badly, with one or both parties frustrated or angry with the other, these decisions can be even tougher to make. In these circumstances, some decisions may be overlooked or rushed when they should really be considered just as carefully as every other.

Living together before marriage no longer a sign of divorce

It was once commonly thought that living with your significant other before you got married significantly raised the chances of a divorce later on in life. But today, with nearly half of marriages ending in divorce within 20 years, the thought of living together might sound like a good thing. Luckily for Pennsylvania couples, a new study suggests that living together before you get married might not be a relevant indicator of the chances for a divorce later on in life. Or, at least, it hasn't indicated that the chances of divorce increase.

Baby boomer divorce is booming in Pennsylvania and nationwide

Divorce rates are growing among baby boomers in Pennsylvania and elsewhere as more people are reaching the ages of 50 and older. For this demographic group, the rate of divorce has doubled in the last two decades, despite a general decline in national divorce rates since the 1980's. Additionally, many of these individuals are not new to the divorce process, and have seen at least one other divorce in their lives.

Smoking could change your custody agreement

If you had a new year's resolution to quit smoking, it might be a good idea to follow through with it if you are in the midst of a divorce and fighting for custody of your children. Going through a divorce is tough enough, but now custody and visitation of your children could come into play if you are a cigarette smoker. There have been recent cases of parents that smoke losing custody privileges.
