Elon Musk and his wife are headed for divorce again

It seems no couple is immune from the possibility of divorce. The rich, the poor, the happy, the disgruntled, the young and the old can all find themselves facing marriage dissolution and the divorce legal issues that can accompany it. It is important to handle these legal issues properly, as failing to do so could leave an individual in a tough financial situation, perhaps with limited or no access to children.

It is possible to decrease the impact a divorce on children

Most divorces in Louisiana involve difficult financial matters. Although an individual's financial security post-divorce is certainly important, for those with children there is perhaps an even greater concern: the impact the marriage dissolution will have on their kids. This is a legitimate concern, and the outcome could shape a parent's post-divorce life just as much as financial standing.

Experience counts in divorce mediations

A previous post here discussed divorce mediation and how, for some couples, it is a viable option for marriage dissolution. Although this route offers individuals a way to address divorce legal issues without heated emotional spats or intense litigation, conducting divorce mediation does not mean that you cannot make demands and push back against your soon-to-be-ex-spouse's demands. Mediation is about finding a balanced resolution that is fair to the parties, and it attempts to reach that agreement through an honest and civil discussion.

What is a child custody evaluation?

Depending on the circumstances surrounding a marriage, a divorce can be hotly contested in several areas. Property division can lead to disagreement, particularly as it relates to the parties' financial resources and sentimentality. Alimony, too, can be a contested issue, again, focusing on an individual's financial well-being post-divorce. But, in some instances, no other issue is more contentious than child custody.

Mediation can make divorces in Louisiana easier

In some instances, a couple that is splitting up is consumed by animosity and they fight each other over every issue until the bitter end. In other cases, however, the parties may be able to maintain contact with each other and work out their differences in an amicable fashion. Those who believe this scenario applies to them may want to consider divorce mediation as a way to dissolve their marriage.
