Is alternative dispute resolution a possibility for my divorce?

When it comes to divorce, most people immediately think of high-stakes conflict and nasty, drawn-out courtroom battles. However, not all couples go through traumatic divorces, and many are even able to find harmonious solutions despite a fraught situation.

Grandparents and child visitation post-divorce

Divorce is increasingly common in today's social landscape, and lots of emphasis and attention is rightfully placed upon the best interests of children. Child custody is a primary issue for divorcing couples and sometimes becomes very contentious.

How does divorce affect kids’ health?

It's always stressful to consider divorce as the next step of your marital relationship. Many parents actually try to avoid divorce until the children have left for college or moved out to spare additional upheaval. However, staying together for the sake of the children may not always be the best option for you or them. But new research is indicating that the harmful effects of divorce are not just limited to emotional distress. What should you do?
