Thinking About Divorce? 10 Topics to Consider

Hi there,

I hope you all had wonderful holidays!

A few weeks ago, a client who was going through a mediated divorce asked about a list of topics to consider in crafting his agreement with his wife and their mediator.  This seemed like a useful tool for anyone considering divorce, and as I thought more about it, the list grew and grew.  Over the next few weeks I will be posting thoughts and considerations about the top 10 topics to think about when getting divorced.

I will cover (and I bet the list will grow):

1.  The kids

2.  Child support and the child support guidelines

3.  Education and activities

4.  Alimony

5.  Life insurance and medical insurance

6.  Tax considerations

7.  Division of real estate

8.  Division of other property

9.  Debts and credit cards

10.  Everything else that should normally be covered in a divorce agreement

I also will be changing the Monday Miscellany format to only a couple of times a month.
