After you get married, you might sit down and think that you should have created a prenuptial agreement. Your spouse has debt, you have debt and you want to protect the assets you collect over time.
Divorce can be a complex process both financially and emotionally. Couples face a number of heated issues while they disentangle their lives, including property division and child custody. An increasingly common–and contentious–issue is who gets to keep the dog or cat when a couple splits.
Determining child custody is one of the most complicated factors in divorce. You want to make sure your children are taken care of and that they have the time they need with each parent.
