Especially when combined with the emotional weight of the divorce, a far-away parent can be challenging for a child. Kids may feel rejected or like their parents do not care. However, there are some tips that parents can follow to nurture the parent-child bond even across many miles.

Your divorce and your financial future

If you and your spouse in Indiana have been experiencing marital difficulties and you believe that ending your marriage may be the best thing for you, it is important that you approach your divorce in a pragmatic and smart way.

How are student loans handled in a divorce?

It is not uncommon for people in Indiana to incur student loan debt when going to college. The amount of money that students often have to borrow even to just get an undergraduate degree can saddle them with debt for years after they have graduated.

It is this reality that leads a lot of people to still have this debt when they get divorced.
