Divorce provisions in Montana

The process of divorce is a serious issue, and it's not a decision that you can or should take lightly. To prevent people from making the rash decision to go through a divorce without thinking things through, you must give a good reason why divorce is necessary.

Divorce rate trends by age group

Divorce rates are not the same for all age groups, which is one reason why applying the common "50% of marriages fail" rate to all Americans is misleading. You have to break it down by age group to really see what the divorce odds look like for any specific couple. When you do, there are a few interesting observations you can make.

Tips for getting along with your ex after divorce

If you and your spouse have recently parted ways, it may be difficult for you to contemplate ever having a civil relationship again. Right now, you may feel that it is impossible to even have a normal conversation with your ex without it turning into a fight. While some people don't feel the need to speak to their ex going forward, others see it as necessary for getting through the divorce proceedings and for co-parenting their children in years to come.

Understanding asset division laws in Montana

One of the most complex processes in a divorce proceeding is the asset division process. Splitting marital assets tends to be particularly complex between high asset spouses, spouses who are struggling to maintain a collaborative relationship, and spouses who have been married for many years.

Managing divorce has unique challenges during retirement

There is no doubt that couples who decide to divorce in Montana will be faced with difficult challenges as they embark on the process to rebuild their lives as independent individuals. Depending on how long a couple has been married, the types of assets they share and the reason their relationship is ending, their path to moving on could vary significantly. For couples who are nearing retirement or who have already retired, divorce can wreak havoc on their financial future and should be carefully navigated to prevent costly mistakes. 

Child custody dispute ends in shooting

The ultimate hope is that those who are going through a divorce in Missoula can keep things civil between each other throughout the process. Doing so may typically works out to benefit of all of those involved, as it allows proceedings to be completed quickly and keeps the resource expenditures required to complete the case at a minimum. Yet divorces often involve a great deal of emotion, and in some cases, expecting those involved to contain that emotion might prove to be too much to ask. At that point, the goal then becomes to limit the impact that it may have on the proceedings. 

Avoid behaviors that could cause your divorce to affect your job
