How divorced parents can minimize graduation day conflicts

You and your ex-spouse have managed to co-parent your children minimal conflict -- in part by not being around each other any more than necessary. Now you're oldest is about to graduate from high school. You not only have to spend the day together, but you must do so with family, fellow parents and others observing you. To make matters worse, your co-parent's significant other or new spouse will be there. How do you prepare yourself to deal with all this?

Structured communication is essential for parallel parenting

If you and your former spouse are recently divorced and still have a highly combative relationship that's making successfully co-parenting your children impossible, your attorney, therapist or others may have suggested the option of "parallel parenting." While that's generally not the ideal co-parenting arrangement over the long run, it can help parents put some space between each other until anger and other emotions subside. Perhaps most importantly, it can save kids the stress of seeing their parents continuing to fight.

How divorce can impact your credit if you aren't careful

You have a multitude of things to worry about during your divorce. However, it's essential not to neglect your credit. You'll need a solid credit rating as you begin your life as a newly single person. You may need to rent an apartment, buy a new home or car and possibly move to a new city.

Parents shouldn't neglect themselves during divorce

If you're going through a divorce, you've probably heard a lot of talk about "moving on" from your marriage. However, the end of a marriage is not completely unlike the death of a loved one. Something you held dear is gone. Even if it's ultimately for the best, it's natural to feel grief -- and even go through the stages of grief (starting with denial and ending with acceptance).

Co-parenting: What not to do

Let's be honest: Co-parenting can be hard. You and your ex still have to raise your kids. You both have a right to see them. You have to work together to do this. You can end your marriage, but you can never stop being parents.
