Parents fight international custody battle

A child custody dispute between a Tennessee father and a Hungarian mother with U.S. citizenship spotlights the intricacies of international child custody battles. A May trial decides whether the custody case will be heard by a U.S., Hungary or Romania judge. The parents were married in Romania, but the children were born in the United States. The children lived in Hungary from 2004 to 2012. In the summer of 2012, they visited their father, who ended up filing for divorce and keeping the children with him in Tennessee. He sought primary custody of his children in the divorce.

Transitioning gender roles in marriage is impacting alimony

It appears that the ever-increasing trend of professional women in the workplace is also impacting the dissolution of marriage, as well as changing the gender roles within the nuclear family. In a news commentary published in May, the subject of alimony became the topic. The alimony topic was not the only thing that was brought to attention, as it was revealed that approximately 40 percent of working wives are now the primary breadwinners in their homes. Many wives who have been court-ordered to pay alimony, however, are also rather angry.

Financial planning for divorce

Divorce can be a stressful and painful process. People are often so anxious to finalize the divorce that they make hasty, unwise decisions regarding their finances. While it's natural to want the divorce process to be as short as possible, it's also important to remember that the implications of a divorce can last a long time. Married people in Tennessee who are considering divorce can avoid pain down the road by making wise financial decisions today.

Parents should plan for college savings during divorce

When going through a divorce, Tennessee couples with children have a lot to think about. The welfare of the children should be the number one priority in any divorce, so in addition to discussing who will retain custody, parents should also consider their children's future education and college savings.

Prenuptial Agreements are useful regardless of income

In the early stages of a long-term relationship, couples in Tennessee and all over the country may be loathe to contemplate how to go about divorce proceedings in the unfortunate event of the dissolution of marriage. But being prepared for such a situation will come in handy should the day arrive to split assets and decide who is responsible for debts incurred both before and during the marriage.
