No one wants to have to go through a divorce, especially when it's going to affect their family. Whether you have stepchildren, adopted children or biological kids, everyone is affected when you divorce.
Divorces that involve children can be among the most difficult. However, it all comes down to how parents handle things. You may worry about your children suffering no matter what you do, but they won't. There are many things that people assert about children going through divorce that simply aren't true, and some myths that could actually hurt children's adjustment to divorce.
Although it is an uncomfortable situation to be in, parents do have to handle the struggle of helping their children adjust to divorce despite the ways they may be acting out against them. A young child may have tantrums, while an older child might begin talking back or lashing out. It is hard to handle, but it is a parent's responsibility to do so.
You love your fiance, and you want to make sure that you both start off your marriage the right way. That's why you'd like to bring up the idea of a prenuptial agreement to them.
Divorces sometimes negatively affect those in certain fields more than others. One group of people with high divorce rates includes firefighters. There are reasons for this, which the House committee is starting to address in Louisiana.
Louisiana is a community property state, which means that you will need to separate your property as equally as possible if you choose to divorce. This can be complicated if you have substantial assets or assets that aren't necessarily liquid.
There is nothing more threatening than the idea that a parent could flee with your child in tow. You do your best to make sure your parenting plan is fair, but your ex-spouse keeps saying it's not enough. You noted recently that your child has been talking about a trip, and your ex-spouse even got your child a passport. You're extremely worried.
There are many types of adoption. One is the adoption of children who are in the state’s foster care system. Recent years have seen high levels of foster child adoption here in Louisiana. This year, totals for such adoptions have hit new heights in the state.
