Bird nesting for children after divorce

Arizona parents who make the decision to divorce may wonder how to deal with living arrangements, especially when children are involved. Many divorcing parents are concerned with protecting the emotional and psychological health of their children, especially since divorce may involve major upheaval. Most traditional joint custody arrangements mean that children will travel between their parents' homes on a weekly basis. Joint custody can be very beneficial for children as it helps to secure their bond with both parents; however, it can also be a tough adjustment, especially immediately following a divorce.

Unquestionably, pets' welfare can complicate a divorce

Divorce-linked property division can entail some real complexity in a given Arizona divorce. Many separating couples - especially those with long-tenured marriages - understandably amass a considerable amount of assets, as well as various types of property. It is not a rarity for asset division to focus on a home, automobiles, additional realty holdings, investment/savings accounts, jewelry, artwork, memorabilia collections and more.

Older couples divorce at higher rates

Arizona couples over the age of 50 are divorcing at a higher rate than younger spouses. Part of the reason is that subsequent marriages fail at a higher rate than initial vows, but there appears to be a generational aspect as well. While divorce rates for the general population are now under 40 percent, they have doubled for those over 50. The phenomenon has sparked the term 'gray divorce" which refers to older couples calling it quits.

There are many myths about divorce going around, and what works for one divorcing couple may not work for everyone. 

What divorcing parents should and should not do

Many estranged Arizona parents can often find it difficult to deal with family and custody conflicts, especially if the divorce itself was not amicable. However, the change in family circumstances can also be particularly difficult for the children, especially since they often do not have a say in their family dynamics. To help make the transition easier, there are certain things that divorced parents should and should not do.
