Don't forget these items in your prenuptial agreement

You and your soon-to-be spouse have decided to put a prenuptial agreement in place before the big day. That's a wise decision. You each should detail and protect the money, property and other assets that belong to you before you begin making purchases together and opening joint bank accounts.

The physical and emotional impact of 'gray divorce'

Divorce is one of the most stressful life events a person can experience. The stress and other circumstances of a divorce can be detrimental to both your physical and emotional health, no matter what your age. However, divorce can more seriously impact the health of older people.

Couple behind famous Plantation Christmas display divorcing

For many South Florida residents, the Christmas season isn't complete without a trip to see the famous (or infamous) Hyatt family Christmas display in Plantation Acres.

If there are considerable assets at stake in your divorce, friends, colleagues or maybe even your attorney may have recommended hiring a certified divorce financial analyst (CDFA). CDFAs are advisors who help people make the best possible financial decisions throughout their divorce.

Dividing your frequent flyer miles in divorce

Most divorcing people are prepared for the break-up to have a negative effect on them financially, at least in the short term.

Why weight-loss surgery could lead to divorce

Recently, we discussed a Swedish study that indicated that women who gained considerable success after marrying were more likely to divorce than other women.

Study: A woman's success can increase her divorce odds

One of the great disruptors of marital bliss -- or at least relative contentment -- is when a large financial or status imbalance develops between spouses that wasn't there at the start of the marriage. Even in the 21st century, it seems that this imbalance is more damaging to a marriage when it's the wife who acquires professional success than when the husband does.

Is your soon-to-be ex hiding assets from you?

People in high-asset divorces often have considerable opportunities to hide assets from their spouses. It's not legal and it's certainly not right, but it can be done. That's why it's essential for spouses to do some digging if they suspect that a husband or wife hasn't been honest about their finances when required to disclose them during the divorce.
