Should You Refinance Before Divorce

Comments are off for this post.
By Tracy Achen If your marriage is on the rocks, should you refinance before divorce or wait until after? For couples who own property, this is something to consider. Deciding who will keep the house and what to do with the mortgage are two of the biggest decisions you will make during divorce. It’s important to note that if both spouses’ names are on the mortgage, they are jointly responsible for repaying the loan, regardless of their marital status.

I could hear the fatigue in Lynn‘s voice as she and I talked over strategy for her divorce. This was her second marriage, so she had divorced once before and knew how messy it could become.

With the enthusiastic support of his parents and siblings, he had lined up an aggressive gladiator divorce lawyer and paid him a retainer larger than anything they could possibly fight over. “Don’t talk to me about our divorce,” he instructed her.

Comments are off for this post.
One of the many reasons I love being a divorce website writer and dating columnist is that almost every time I meet someone new and they find out what I do, they ask me for either dating or divorce advice, or in the case of two nights ago, dating with kids advice. I love when I feel like I might have helped someone, especially a woman I met recently who was asking about dating after divorce with kids. She started telling me how she’s been divorced for a couple years and recently met a man she is falling in love […]

In focus: Should City firms cut ties with fossil fuel giants?

Comments are off for this post.
On a rainy day in February 2020, a group of Extinction Rebellion campaigners wearing hazmat suits lay on the pavement in front of Slaughter and May’s London office. The soggy scene was staged in protest against the firm’s decision to represent fossil fuel companies, namely energy giant Premier Oil. Next week, the climate group is expected to target the legal sector again, claiming that City firms are ‘critical enablers of the carbon economy’ and are ‘knowingly investing in the destruction of the conditions which make the planet habitable’. With their drums, loudspeakers and grungy headbands, Extinction Rebellion protesters are the […]

Regretting a Breakup? Advice for Second Thoughts and Doubts

Comments are off for this post.
If I had to bet, I would say there has never been a breakup in the history of serious relationships and/or marriages, in which the couple didn’t get back together at least one time before they got divorced. In other words, I believe that breakups in long-term relationships always consist of trying again. Why? Because regretting a breakup is normal. There is love there, and longevity, kids possibly, and the biggest reason: people don’t want to be divorced and/or single again. But there’s another reason why I think regretting a breakup frequently happens, and that people usually get back together […]
