Meeting health insurance needs following a divorce

48756392_S.jpgAs people in Springfield begin to plan for their post-divorce lives, one element that often comes to the forefront of their minds is how they will replace the financial support they had been receiving from their soon-to-be ex-spouses. Those who were not the primary income earners in their marital homes may be justly concerned as to how they will now see to their own (and potentially their children's) needs. Child and spousal support can help meet their day-to-day needs, but what about unplanned expenses such as healthcare costs? If the ex-spouse was the income earner, then they also likely secured the family's insurance coverage. 

How can I cope with a divorce I didn't want?

86194801_S.jpgGoing through a divorce is never easy, even when both parties are on the same page. However, the process can be even more difficult when your spouse was responsible for initiating the divorce. This can leave you reeling and may even cause feelings of intense loneliness and abandonment. MyDomaine.com offers the following tips to help you cope with an unwanted divorce. 

How high is the divorce rate in America?

44438970_S.jpgIf you are like many people in Missouri, you have probably heard references to how many marriages end in divorce. For some time now, many people have asserted that as many as one in every two couples who say, "I do" will eventually get divorced. However, this may not truly be what is happening today.

Financial considerations for a post-50 divorce

45791375_S.jpgMost people who live in Missouri know someone personally who has gotten divorced or who may be in the midst of a divorce even now. Contrary to what some people may believe, more and more of these people are in their 50s, 60s or even older. Interestingly, in the last two decades, the number of people getting divorced after they reach the age of 50 continues to increase. In fact, according to data from Pew Research, the rate of divorce among people 50 or older is actually 109 percent higher today than it was a quarter of a century ago.

Filing for divorce due to incompatibility

78818017_S.jpgPeople end their marriages because of affairs, financial issues and many other reasons. Sometimes, a couple finds out that they are incompatible, whether they have been married for a very brief period of time or they have been married for decades. Some couples are able to work through their differences by successfully pursuing therapy and counseling, while others are able to address their incompatibility through mutual understanding and time. However, others are never able to happily continue their marriage and simply do not get along with each other.

Understanding how the length of your marriage affects divorce

33720475_S.jpgWhile divorce can be a complicated process for many people, it can be exponentially more difficult and time consuming if you and your spouse have been married for a long time. Often, the longer your marriage lasts, the more there is to untangle in terms of finances, shared assets and belongings that may hold sentimental value to both of you. At Stange Law Firm, PC, we have helped many divorcing couples in Missouri to work through the legal process of divorce as quickly as possible. 

When is separation the right answer?

29765997_S (2).jpgFor Springfield-area couples who are struggling with their marriage but not ready to throw in the towel, a legal separation may be the right decision. Along with giving each spouse time and space to think about all the ramifications of divorce, a separation has financial benefits too.

Judge facing discipline for intervening in custody case

53676530_S.jpgDivorce proceedings in Springfield can often become emotional given the stakes involved. However, participants in such cases rely on the fair and unbiased guidance of court professional in order to keep things on task. It is this very lack of connection between the parties involved which affords judges and other officers of the court the authority to render valid judgments. Were one such official to have ties to one side, ethical standards may require that he or she excuse him or herself from the proceedings in order to avoid the impression that one party might be privy to favorable treatment. 

Signs a divorce may be the answer

46129094_S.jpgDespite many efforts, there is often no simple way of going about a divorce. There are a number of aspects to consider, such as alimony, property settlement and child custody planning, if children are involved. However, some Missouri spouses have trouble acknowledging that a divorce should happen in the first place.
