How can I increase my alimony payments?

If you are going through a divorce or have recently become divorced, you may be in the process of negotiating, or you may already be subject to alimony payments. Alimony, otherwise known as spousal support, tends to be awarded to the divorcing spouse who earns a lower income. This is done to try and ensure that neither spouse has to lower their standard of living due to divorce.

Predictable ways that people hide assets

In a high-asset divorce, one of the potential issues you may face is if your spouse decides to hide assets. They do this because they don't want to split those assets with you, and they may think that you don't know enough about the family finances to even notice what you're missing. Hiding assets may be illegal, but it does happen.

Will divorce affect my child's academic performance?
