Dealing With Parental Kidnapping

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Divorce is an aspect that many people are faced with every day in the world we live in. Once happy and peaceful couples are now arguing on a daily level and believing that divorce is the right option for them. Although some divorces are split second decisions and decided in the heat of the moment, some are for not only the greater good of the couple, but also children and all parties associated with them. However, what does division of the assets really mean especially with children?

Children are used as pawns in divorce whether it is believed or not. Former spouses barter children in order to get what assets they truly want such as alimony, or other possessions. Yet their loving parents fight for most of the time children ruthlessly. When custody is given to one parent visitation rights are given to the other in order to assure that not only the parent, but also the child keeps some former normalcy in the new state of life. Sometimes parents do not always do the right thing when dealing with their children, and they’re ex spouses.

Parental kidnapping is when a parent takes their child out of a known area without the consent of the custodial parent. This probably usually takes place when custody that is given by a judge is not done properly or there are disputes and arguments among parents dealing with other aspects of their former marriage. One thing, this is illegal and an individual can face serious charges and fines for this action.

Another thing that is a repercussion of this instance is the mental and emotional stress that is put on the child. A child can already be in a fragile state from a divorce and with more instances of parental drama many things can spiral from this. Children can demonstrate depression, do poorly in school, and even turn to drug use when faced with issues as such.

Overall, children are an important aspect of life and are constantly learning and growing and take lessons from everything that happens to them. So why not present them with positive parenting that will be presented to their children in the future?

Your Divorce, Your Credit

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

In today’s day and age many think that relationships in general will be faced with divorce at one point or another. One can automatically assumes what the general consequences of a divorce will be emotional stress, depression, and especially anger. When a divorce occurs people are making the physical and emotional transition from being with another individual living, sleeping, and learning to by themselves attempting to relive their single life. One thing that couples always do not take into consideration when getting a divorce is the true financial obligations, and differences that occurs from it.

When couples are together a person can only assume that they will share. They share their home, their personal lives, and a part of them with another individual for a period of time. One thing that they also share are their finances. Financially, couples usually pull their incomes together in a joint effort in order to pay bills, pay for homes, vacations, and necessities. Yet, usually couples get credit cards together and could even take out loans.

After a divorce, usually one person is given the responsibility to pay for some bills and the other for those remaining. Yet, some of these bills go unpaid and credit scores are inevitably affected. When divorced, a court order is sent to credit companies to inform them of change, yet most of them simply ignore these leading to more problems for an already frantic spouse.

A damaged credit score has major repercussions on an individual and can easily affect future purchases, loans, credit cards, or anything else involving a good standing financial platform. When divorced, a spouse can already be paying for other aspects of the divorce alone, but how do they pay for their present living expenses if they do not have a good credit score?

Overall, individuals who get divorced should carefully sit down with their former spouse to make sure that prior financial commitments are being followed through in one form or fashion. Without doing so, the future finances of the now single individuals can be affected for years and years down the road.
