Can you benefit from a prenuptial agreement?

New York spouses, who are planning to tie the knot by getting married, may also want to set up a prenuptial agreement before they say "I do." However, deciding whether a prenuptial agreement is right for you could involve a considerable amount of thought. To assist you in your decision-making process, consider asking yourself the following questions.

What parenting provisions should I include about discipline?

New York parents who are raising their children as single co-parents will not always be able to agree with the other parent about the disciplining of their children. For example, perhaps you believe that your child should be grounded for a week as punishment, but the other parent doesn't agree. This could interfere with your ability to discipline your child, and create the base of a serious disagreement.

What should I put in a child care journal after a divorce?

New York parents in the midst of their divorce proceedings may want to consider keeping a child care journal. A child care journal offers a means for single parents to document their child care activities so that -- if their participation as a parent is ever called into question by the court -- they can offer proof of all the efforts they've made to spend time with and give care to their children.

2 pieces of advice to make your divorce process easier

Most people have to learn about divorce the hard way. They got married, and for whatever they went through a divorce, and -- with the help of their family law attorney -- they probably bumbled through the process. They may have made some big mistakes, and learned from those mistakes, but will they ever benefit from the knowledge they acquired?
