A relationship with the in-laws could increase risk of divorce

Everyone in Little Rock has seen television shows in which a wife is constantly criticized by her in-laws and she can do nothing right in their eyes. While many people may think this to be a comedic interpretation of real life, it appears that this situation could actually be fairly true to form. After a 26-year study was recently published, researchers are finding that women who report having a close relationship with their in-laws are at a 20 percent higher risk of getting a divorce.

High stakes in high asset divorce require transparency

When Arkansas couples with substantial assets are involved in a high asset divorce, the stakes for the division of the couple's marital property will naturally be high. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that one must never let greed get the best of them. All assets, income, expenses and debt must be honestly and accurately disclosed in order to arrive at a fair, and legal, divorce settlement.

Divorce in the wake of a natural disaster

After Superstorm Sandy caused extensive damage across much of the Northeast, it is not surprising that many families in the affected areas are splitting up. Though Arkansas is not rebuilding as some of the other states following this horrible storm, it has had its share of natural disasters. The lessons learned from Sandy can help anyone in Arkansas who has gone through or may go through some kind of destructive storm.

'Real Housewives' star announces divorce is finalized

Every divorce can be difficult, but the more money that is involved, the more difficult it may be to try and create an equitable divorce settlement. For many people in Little Rock, there are important factors that need to be considered during a high-net worth divorce, including who has access to investment and retirement accounts, whether spousal support or alimony needs to be paid, and how to divide real property. With such financial losses at stake, it is important that anyone going through a high-asset divorce works closely with divorce lawyers to ensure his or her interests are properly represented.

Remember: divorce will get easier with time

Anyone in the middle of a divorce in Little Rock knows how emotionally devastating a divorce can be. Whether it is a dispute over custody or the sorrow that comes with a relationship ending, in the moment divorce feels like it will never end. The good thing, however, is that it will. The process of divorce will eventually be over and each individual spouse will be able to heal and learn from the process. Thought it may sound too good to be true to most people in Arkansas, eventually everyone will be OK.
