Could a custody dispute damage a child's mental health?

If any of our Maryland readers have been through a divorce with children involved, they know that the entire process can take quite a toll on everyone, including the children. When the divorcing parties cannot agree to a parenting plan, the court will need to get involved and weigh many different factors in making a final determination. A child custody dispute can not only further embitter the soon-to-be ex-spouses, but it can also make the children involved feel as though they are right in the middle of the anger and fighting. That the children in this type of situation will have widely ranging emotions is a given, but is there a chance that they could actually develop a mental disorder from the custody dispute?

Prenuptial agreements can be helpful, but hard to break

Prenuptial agreements have become more and more popular over the years, and it is not hard to see why. The divorce rate continues to hover around 50 percent, so anyone getting married in America these days has to know that almost half of marriages end in divorce. And anyone who is currently going through a divorce, or has previously, probably knows that there are many complicated issues that must be settled. That is where prenuptial agreements come in. The agreements, drawn up and signed prior to the marriage can make things much easier in the event that the marriage does end in divorce.

Divorce fight gets worse for NASCAR CEO Brian France

When a divorce gets contentious, it can seem like the wheels come off of the whole process rather quickly. Most of our Maryland readers probably think that no one wants to find themselves in the middle of a heated divorce fight, especially if it is a high asset divorce. With the multitude of issues to be decided by the parties, albeit with the help and direction of the judge, less friction can often be the best route. However, for one NASCAR CEO currently battling it out with his ex-wife in court, he is taking his fight to the next level in his attempt to keep their proceeds private.

Child custody disputes - what do children have to say?

None of our Maryland readers would doubt that a divorce can be tough for all of the parties involved. But, for many families, if there are children who have to witness the divorce process, it can be hard to imagine what might be going through their minds. If there is a child custody dispute during the divorce proceedings, it can make things even tougher.
