How to resolve divorce disputes

It is very common for divorcing couples in New York to argue and dispute details about their situations with their soon-to-be ex-partners. Separating couples who learn how to manage their disagreements without getting the courts involved can minimize the impact of the situation on their lives. When there are children involved, couples should work towards minimizing the effects of the situation on them. Divorces are not always easy, states U.S. News & World Report. However, they are often easier to resolve when both partners are on the same page.

A prenup might not be romantic, but it makes good sense

Many people believe that romance, love and happiness epitomize a wedding. Why would you want to sully those emotions by asking your betrothed to sign a prenuptial agreement? Simply put, a prenup settles certain financial issues between you and your soon-to-be spouse that could come up in the event of a divorce. It might help to think of it as an insurance policy - you buy insurance with the hope that you never need it.
