What divorcing parents should remember when co-parenting children

While going through a divorce in New York can be an emotional and unpleasant experience, dealing with a former spouse may not stop after the divorce is settled, especially if children are involved. Many former couples will continue to co-parent the kids until the children become adults. There are a few guidelines that co-parents can follow to make the transition a bit easier.

Common financial surprises that divorcing wives may encounter

A recent study of 1,785 adult women who were at some point in the divorce process found that many were surprised by the financial implications of separating. Specifically, 46 percent said that they were caught off guard by issues such as the cost of the divorce or the amount of debt their household had. Many were also shocked that they would not be able to keep the marital home. The findings of the survey may be of interest to wives in New York.

Negative consequences of falling behind on child support

The divorce of parents in New York often obligates one person to make child support payments. Someone who loses his or her job, however, might fall behind on payments. Some individuals might work out an arrangement that allows a person to catch up on payments, but unpaid child support might cause other custodial parents to request an enforcement action.

How financial differences can lead to divorce

Many couples in New York divorce because of disagreements about finances. Unfortunately, there are several common money situations that can lead to the end of a marriage. One issue is poor communication, which can only be overcome if one spouse completely trusts the other to handle the finances. However, this can lead to problems if the financially savvy spouse dies or if the couple divorces. It is better for couples to have a monthly conversation about the family finances.

Consider collaborating in your divorce

Divorce doesn’t have to be a long, drawn-out battle with a winner and loser. Couples split up for any number of reasons, and every divorce doesn’t have to be a contentious fight. Divorce laws are designed to create an equitable outcome for all parties, and spouses who have maintained open communication have options to avoid some of the challenges of conventional divorce.
