Going through a divorce can lead to some unexpected restrictions for some New York couples.

Even spouses who are prepared for the financial and legal changes may find themselves surprised by some of the things that they cannot do during the divorce proceedings.

Making a divorce easier to handle

Divorce can be painful for any New York couple. However, there are ways to make the process as easy as possible. First, it's important for an individual to know what he or she needs during this time.

Getting child support right between divorcing couples

Child support is a major point of contention among New York parents, especially formerly married exes.

The Census Bureau paints a clear picture of the child support dilemma in the U.S.

Things to keep in mind about sharing legal custody

Making a decision about child custody is often thought of as deciding where the child will live, but that is just the definition of physical custody. Parents in New York must also decide or have a judge decide whether they will share legal custody. Legal custody refers to the right of a parent to make major decisions about issues such as a child's religion, health care and education. Parents may share legal custody even if one has primary physical custody while the other has visitation rights.

Tips to help divorced parents with their children

Divorcing parents can divide child custody and visitation

For many New York parents going through a divorce, planning for a future of co-parenting can be very difficult. The process often involves dealing with child custody and visitation. While both refer to parenting time with a minor child, the two are distinct and separate. Child custody is not only about physical presence but also the right to make important legal, medical or educational decisions for a child.

Tips for financial planning in case of divorce

Divorce might not be on the minds of couples in New York who are getting married, but there are reasons that individuals might want to think about creating a prenuptial agreement.
