Couples should consider the big picture of a divorce settlement

Virtually no one wants to come out of a divorce with their financial state in shambles. However, the process of maintaining a solid financial foundation while also dealing with sometimes difficult decisions -- such as child custody or asset division -- may seem overwhelming. By keeping a few key factors in mind, couples in Oregon do not have to sacrifice their financial security during a divorce. 

Establishing parenting time can help with support payments

Finances are typically on both spouses' minds during a divorce and understandably so. Even though the recent recession is in the rearview mirror for most people, there may still be a feeling of insecurity when it comes to jobs and finances. This can be especially true for Oregon parents who must also ensure the continued security of their children. Luckily, child support payments made by one parent to the other can help establish financial security for any children involved, and the amounts ordered are typically based, at least partially, on how much parenting time each party has.

Considering a divorce? This may be the right time of year

While following the lead or advice of a celebrity may not always be the most advisable thing to do, it appears that some stars may be able to set at least one solid example when it comes to divorce. Company executives and celebrities alike appear to understand that the beginning of a New Year isn't just a time for resolutions that will likely be dropped before the month is up. Instead, they apparently understand that filing for divorce at the start of the year can sometimes be an exceptionally beneficial time to do so.

Mediation can help resolve child custody disputes

Deciding who should have what responsibilities in a custody agreement is rarely an easy decision. Questions such as "Should he live with the primary caretaker?" or "Who is responsible for health insurance?" can arise, possibly signaling the beginning of a battle for child custody. While simply wanting as much time with a child is quite understandable, staying calm during these negotiations can be one of the most beneficial actions that may be in the best interest of the child.

Already thinking of asset division, Gina Neely files for divorce

When a celebrity divorce is announced, it is rare that it appears as amicable as the recent split between celebrity chefs Gina and Pat Neely. However, even when most aspects of a divorce are on relatively friendly terms -- such as why the divorce is needed -- dividing up what was once marital property can be difficult. Those in Oregon who are planning to divorce might take note of the Neelys' apparent forethought into the issue of asset division.

After divorce, what spousal support is available to me?

Spousal support, also known as alimony, is not always necessary for every divorced couple in Oregon. However, for those who believe that they are eligible to receive some type of spousal support, it can be important to go into a divorce prepared. There are actually three different types of spousal support that you may qualify for.
