Student loans a factor in any divorce

If you're considering getting a divorce and have student loans, you're probably wondering about how those are going to be split between you and your spouse. Those types of debts, along with other shared debts, can quickly become a concern if they weren't to further your own education. Will you get stuck footing the bill?

Divorce mediation works: You can resolve conflicts

If you don't want to go to trial to work through your divorce in the eye of the court and public, another option is to go through divorce mediation. Divorce mediation can work for couples who struggle to work together and for those who have just a few contested issues. Mediation is faster, less expensive and calms down emotions in contentious situations.
