Til debt do us part: divorce and student loan debt

In recent months and years, much attention has been paid to the growing number of Americans who are struggling to repay student loan debt. Recent economic difficulties coupled with the rising costs of higher education, have left millions of Americans with tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt. As these men and women marry, questions related to who is responsible for paying student loan debt must be answered, particularly in cases where an individual subsequently goes through a divorce.

Divorce and dividing retirement and investment assets

When most people think about divorce, matters related to child custody, spousal and child support and the division of personal possessions come to mind. The division of assets is also a crucial aspect of divorce that must be addressed. However, for most couples, assets consist of more than simple checking and savings accounts.

Helping a child cope with divorce

Parents who choose to divorce are often extremely concerned about how their decision to split will affect a child. It's true that, in the wake of a divorce, a child may act out. It's also true, however, that being exposed and forced to deal with the daily stress of living in a home with two unhappy parents can be extremely damaging to a child's psyche. Therefore, when a marriage is broken, staying together for the sake of a child is not in anyone's best interest.

Taking stock of finances when planning for divorce

A husband's or wife's decision to file for divorce is often preceded by months or years of contemplating the matter. Therefore, when a husband or wife finally decides to walk away from an unhappy marriage he or she may be tempted to immediately inform a spouse of that decision. However, many divorce and financial experts advise that it's often best to wait until certain financial matters have been sorted out.
