Support issues are important in any Virginia divorce

Child support and spousal support can be some of the most important concerns couples will address during their divorce. Fortunately, the family law process provides resources to resolve those concerns which is why it can be helpful for parents to understand how the family law system addresses their important spousal and child support concerns.

The positive changes that can come from divorce

Divorce generally signals a dark time in a person’s life. Many people who are facing the end of a marriage feel as if their life is over, that they are a failure, or that they will never find love again. With all the negativity that divorce gets, there are many who feel as if divorce liberates them. They no longer are chained to a difficult marriage and they are free to be themselves.

Sharing Love and Money Outside of Marriage and the Potential Downsides

"It has become 'no big deal' to mix love and money outside of marriage." In a recent article, the Washington Post examines the modern complexities that face unmarried couples who share finances. As marriage rates decline, more and more unmarried couples are forming joint accounts and buying property together. These decisions can have long-range affects and individuals should be aware of the potential consequences.

Personal Information and Social Media during Family Problems

Technology is a great way to stay connected to the 'outside world.' However, it is important to remember and be accountable for the fact that staying connected is not private. When you are roaming around the grocery store telling your deepest secrets to your BFF or family member on your cell, it is not a private conversation. Even if you change your settings on Facebook, your posts, comments and other activity are not likely private. When you down load inappropriate photos from the internet or use a photo service like Instagram, your activities are not private. And while you may not be Frank Sinatra, Justin Bieber, Tom Cruise, or Beyonce, and wonder therefore why anyone would care, when you are involved in a divorce or other family related litigation, the lawyers will care and your former spouse or soon-to-be former spouse will care. If you are thinking of sharing your personal information out there on the world wide web, think twice and then think again.
