Gray divorce more common, can cause health problems

Divorce has been linked to depression and stress that can exacerbate existing health conditions and increase the risk of other problems for seniors. People in Texas who are approaching or going through a divorce later in life should keep the increased likelihood of health issues in mind. Knowing what to expect allows for preparation so that divorcing couples are not taken by surprise.

The positives of getting a prenup

A prenuptial agreement, or prenup, is a legal document that individuals can use to specify how their assets will be handled should they get a divorce. Couples in Pennsylvania who are thinking about getting married should carefully consider how prenups could protect their financial interests.

Credit card debt forgiveness is rarely a panacea

Credit card debt forgiveness may seem like an attractive option to Michigan residents who are struggling financially, but they may find that pursuing this course of action is futile because debt collectors expect a sizeable upfront payment before agreeing to forgive part of what is owed. Another problem with debt forgiveness is that it does little to help credit ratings as these offers are not generally made until accounts are seriously delinquent and credit scores have already plummeted precipitously.

Planning for the school year following divorce

Any new school year in Michigan comes with an understandable range of emotions for children, from apprehension about new teachers and classes to excitement about playing favorite sports. For children adjusting to a post-divorce life that includes splitting time between two homes, there can be added stress associated with getting back to school, especially if the end of a marriage is fairly recent. It can be helpful for everyone involved to be on the same page with how school-related issues will be handled to make the transition easier for children.
