How fathers can increase the likelihood of getting child custody

Fathers in Virginia who are going through a divorce might want to get custody of their children. However, many dads feel at a disadvantage in court since custody is traditionally awarded to mothers. Nevertheless, there are a few things a father can do to increase the likelihood of getting custody.

Prenuptial agreements help couples plan for marriage

Virginia couples planning for marriage may face the question of whether or not to get a prenuptial agreement. Some future spouses might feel that a prenup creates division between partners and helps to lay the groundwork for divorce before the marriage even begins. These documents can also make it seem as if one partner's family is undermining the marital bond. Despite the negative conceptions of prenuptial agreements, they can actually work to strengthen a relationship and build a more solid marriage.

Pets are part of your family too, so what happens if you divorce?

If you are currently living in Arlington and preparing for divorce, you are definitely not the only one. No two divorce situations are exactly the same, albeit your circumstances may be similar to another. Many people in Virginia face obstacles in divorce when disagreements arise regarding custody of family pets. Whether you're a parent of human children, or childless but consider your fur-baby as near to a son or daughter as can be, custody issues can be problematic if you don't know where to seek support.

Tax law changes could impel faster divorces

In December 2017, the U.S. Congress passed a new tax law that made sweeping changes. As a result, a number of couples in Virginia and across the United States may be hastening their divorce plans before some significant modifications go into effect. Each year in the United States, approximately 800,000 couples finalize their divorces. This number could rise in 2018 as couples seek to avoid a provision in the tax law that will affect the way that alimony and spousal support are taxed.

Tax return changes can accompany divorce

Financial considerations are often major considerations for people in Virginia who are headed toward divorce. The end of a marriage has severe financial implications for most divorcing spouses in addition to the emotional and other practical concerns that accompany a split. One financial aspect of divorce that is not always recognized is the changes that are necessary to deal with tax filings following a divorce.
