Will a divorce derail early retirement?

Many people are working well into their senior years these days, whether out of necessity or because they enjoy what they do. Others who have worked hard, lived frugally and saved and invested wisely prefer to retire years before they're eligible for Medicare and Social Security. They may want to travel the world, spend time with their grandkids or start a second act building sailboats or showing their prized tulips.

Domestic abuse is most often associated with physical and sexual violence or emotional and verbal cruelty by one spouse or partner towards the other. However, many partners seek to get the upper hand in a relationship and exert power through financial abuse.

Reports of domestic and sexual violence dropping among immigrants

Advocates for victims of domestic violence across the country report a sharp drop in the number of reports they've received from Latinos in recent months. Many attribute this to the fear among undocumented immigrants that they will be deported if they contact the police or the courts regarding a violent partner or spouse or even to report sexual assault or rape. One police chief says that he fears the trend "looks like the beginnings of people not reporting crime."

Planning for children's health care coverage during divorce

Divorcing parents must show that they are providing health care insurance coverage for their children. That is stipulated under the Affordable Care Act. Of course, making sure that their children's medical needs are taken care of is a priority for every good parent.
