George Clooney finally marries. Did he sign a prenup?

Unless you were hiding under a rock this weekend, or had no access to any news reports whatsoever, you probably heard that George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin tied the knot. Arguably the most famous serial bachelor recently explained to People magazine that marriage feels “pretty damn great.”

Three reasons why mediation may be helpful to you

If you are getting divorced, or are going through a child custody battle (for those who are not married) the possibility of protracted litigation is enough to keep them up at night. After all, the discovery disputes, court hearings and custody evaluations could run tens of thousands of dollars. Even more troubling, the emotional toil that comes with the process can be especially draining.

Why child support may be less expensive than child raising costs

Although it is only the middle of September, anyone who has been in a mall or a grocery store can tell that Halloween in closer than you may think. It is a reminder that kids will want costumes, be invited to parties and all the things that come with fall festivals. Moreover, there will likely be school plays that kids will need costumes for, and before you know it, the holiday season will be upon us.

How to keep kids first when announcing a divorce

While making the decision to divorce may be difficult by itself, it is certainly a thorny conundrum with how to tell children about what is going to happen to the marriage. On the one hand, it is a time of transition in the lives of the parents just as much as it is for the children. Because of this, it is important for parents to be careful with how they announce their split.

How to deal with changes that come with a new school year

Change is not always easy. It may seem cliché, but it is true. Just like kids must go through an adjustment period when a new school year starts, so must parents; especially when they have recently gone through a separation or recently completed a divorce. To avoid these complications (or at least to mitigate them) it is important for parents to put aside their personal differences and work together for the benefit of the children.
