Can you end your marriage while avoiding a divorce?

There are many reasons why a person would want to avoid divorce, even when he or she wants to end a marriage. Annulment is an alternative to divorce, and it can accomplish many of the same things that a divorce does. However, the main difference between the two is that while a divorce ends a marriage, an annulment makes it as if it never existed.

Prenups have become more acceptable

Thirty or 40 years ago, prenuptial agreements were relatively unheard of, and even then, they were for the wealthy or celebrities. As the number of divorces has increased, so have the number of people using prenups. Once upon a time, these agreements were viewed as either unromantic or capable of jinxing the marriage.

Keeping the family nest after divorce

If you are one of the fortunate ones who have a respectful and workable relationship with your soon-to-be ex, you are probably able to negotiate many of the important decisions that a divorce requires. Ideally, there was minimal contention during the division of property, and you may even have a general idea of how you want the custody arrangements to unfold.

Divorce mistakes can have present and future ramifications

Though you probably hope to go through your divorce proceedings as efficiently as possible, you may already know that your particular case could face complications. However, those complexities do not have to mean that you end up with overwhelming stress and disappointing outcomes. You still have options that could help you achieve your goals in the manner you find most fitting.

Protecting your credit during a divorce

As you prepare for divorce, you may be focusing your energy on the custody of your children and the division of your assets. Following your attorney's advice, you are considering the most efficient ways to provide well for your children and protect yourself financially in the future. What you may not realize is that your debts also play an important role in your divorce.

Don't face complicated child custody issues on your own

It probably took you some time to decide just how to break the news of your impending divorce to your children. However, once you explained the situation, you may have been surprised at how resilient your children are and how supportive they could be. You then turned your attention toward child custody matters, knowing that a contentious situation could arise.

Multi-cultural families often encounter unusual custody issues

Technology has made the world a smaller place. People from different countries meet online, fall in love and marry. Many learn to live with the cultural differences they now share and work together to provide their children with a multi-cultural upbringing, which may include visiting friends and family in your spouse's country of origin.
