Breaking Divorce News is never easy! #breakingdivorcenews #childrenanddivorce

One of the most difficult decisions a family can make is divorce. A plethora of anxieties may begin to overwhelm you. But more importantly, what are you going to tell the kids? You’ve gone over it in your head over and over, and still no resolve. Often, divorce can be a tricky time to maneuver through ensuring your future happiness, but at the same time making sure that the kids are going to be alright.

If you have kids of different ages, teenagers then the conversation must be age appropriate. Teenagers are the most difficult, even though you think that they are more apt to handle the situation, but many times that is not the case. If you have a mix of ages, there is no perfect answer, but we do have a few helpful tips when it comes to Breaking Divorce News to the kids. Sometimes, the act of just telling your children that their parents are getting divorced is the hardest part of the conversation. Seeking a child psychologist to help your family through the adjustment can also be very helpful, as many of us are built with the right toolkit to handle a family divorce. Anyone who has been through a divorce knows how difficult and complicated divorce can get, especially when children are involved. Visit sdixonlaw.com for more information on Family Law.

Key Ways to Breaking the News of Divorce to Children
The conversation typically starts out the same as it does in many families facing the same issue of divorce, “Kids, we have something to tell you.” The smartest thing to know is that most kids over the age of 9 already know what that statement means, either?Mom and Dad are getting divorced, or one of our grandparents passed away. Often as parents we forget how smart and in tune our children are to our own lives. We may be self-consumed by the divorce, and they see it. Always remember, kids are a lot smarter than most of us give them credit for. Give your child or children the credit they deserve. Make sure you tell your children when you begin to file for divorce. Keeping it a secret will make your children feel betrayed, and they will lose trust in both parents. That is not a place you want to live in. Always be upfront and honest with your children. Kids need to understand that this isn’t a break up of the family but moreover a reorganization of the family.

Knowing that when you start with a leading question when you break the news of the really divorce to your children, you foreshadow your next statement. “Mom and Dad are getting a divorce.” Although this may seem pretty standard verbiahelps the kids quickly see in their heads what’s going to happen next to them. Kids act on intrinsic motivators, like, “what will this do to me?” And “where will I live?” The key is to understand that children’s brains are not fully developed and that their welfare is more important to them than yours. Every child is different so make sure you have a conversation that fits your child's personality.

What is the Number One Rule of Divorce When Children are Involved?
Do not, I mean do not poison your children with your negative feelings about the other parent. Doing so destroys families. There are ways to ensure that your divorce goes smoothly and your children come out ok, and often better if you had stayed together for the children.

Before you start to drag your ex-loved one through the mud, think about how this will affect your children in the long run. Families that divorce maintains healthy family relations by maintaining trust between all family members. The best way to break the news of divorce is to maintain respect among all parties involved, including extended family.

When Breaking Divorce News What Questions Should We be Prepared to Answer?

Where will I live? Makes sure that you explain that life may be different, and Mom and Dad will have separate homes, but time will be spent equally between the two parents.
Will I get to keep my friends? Of course, this shows that kids will not be thinking about you, like how are we going to pay the bills. They are thinking about themselves, and you must assure them that they will be ok.

Regardless of what questions may come up, parents must give the children the details they need, without the adult part of it. The why’s are not that important, what the future holds for the family is most important. If parents work together in their divorce, even if they weren’t able to work together in their marriage, the children will benefit. Remember that even if the first wish of children of divorce (i.e. that Mom and Dad will get back together) can’t come true, their second wish (i.e. that Mom and Dad will cooperate with each other and not fight) can come true. That is up to you.

Can your CREDIT be at risk when you get married or divorced?

#sharingfamilylawinformation #Creditdebt #Divorcedebt

Myths and Truths! #Creditandmarriage #Creditanddivorce

Our Credit Reports Will Merge Together When We Get Married

This is probably the most common marriage myth. Credit reports are keyed off each person’s individual Social Security number. Since your Social Security numbers don’t merge together into one number when you get married, neither do your credit histories.

Marriage Will Lower My Credit Scores

Huge amounts of credit card debt from funding your wedding and your honeymoon may harm your credit scores, but the act of getting married will not. Nothing automatically changes on your credit reports when you get married, so nothing should impact your credit scores.
How Divorce Could Affect Your Credit
While the act of divorcing doesn't directly hurt your credit, a divorce could indirectly lead to financial troubles that do hurt your credit. For instance, losing one of two household incomes could cause financial strain that leads to missed payments on your credit cards, loans, and other bills.
Divorce could hurt your credit score if payments aren’t made on accounts you hold jointly with your ex or soon-to-be ex. In some divorce proceedings, the judge declares one spouse responsible for the joint debt. That spouse fails to make payment and the creditor adds the late payment to both your credit reports. It doesn’t matter to the creditor that the judge said the other spouse is responsible for payments.

In some cases, one spouse purposely hurts the other person’s credit, out of spite or revenge. Again, this isn’t the divorce itself that hurts the credit score, but the events that occur because of the divorce.

Protecting Your Credit After a Divorce

Remember that payment history and level of debt are the two biggest factors affecting your credit score.
Maintaining a positive payment history and minimizing your debt during and after the divorce are key to keeping your credit score in tact. Here’s what you can do to keep your credit rating intact during and after the divorce.
Adjust your lifestyle to your reduced income. You might have to make some major life changes to live on just one income.

That may mean selling your house and buying a less expensive one. It may mean moving to an apartment. If you can no longer afford your auto loan payments, you might refinance the loan or sell the vehicle and buy a less expensive one. You may have to reduce the grocery bill, eat out less, and cut out cable television.

Create a budget (or modify your existing one) to figure out what you can and cannot afford. Prioritize your expenses and keep up the payments that have a direct impact on your credit score, e.g. loans and credit cards.
Try to cover your primary expenses out of your income, not including alimony or child support. Some vindictive ex-spouses may skip payments, try to have the amount reduced, or even quit their job to spite you. It might be difficult to live as though you’re not depending on those court-ordered payments. But if the payments ever stop, you’re already prepared.

Deal with your joint debts. Sever your financial ties to your spouse as soon as you realize divorce is imminent. Go through your credit report and use recent billing statements make a list of all accounts that are jointly held. Close these accounts, in writing and by phone for extra protection, and ask the creditor not to re-open them.

Remove your spouse’s authorized user status if you want to keep them from running up a balance that creditors won’t hold them responsible for.
