best time for divorceBy Matt Allen


It's no secret a divorce isn't cheap with the average case costing $20,000.

But there are certain times when a divorce can be financially advantageous, such as in today's present economy.

Cordell & Cordell managing partner Scott Trout once told a news outlet he does not encourage divorce, but rather a man should not let a poor economy prevent an inevitable break up.

"In the stock market, you buy low and sell high. Why in a divorce would you divorce high and not low?" Trout asked. "What we're trying to tell guys is, 'Look, when you think you can least afford a divorce ... might be the time to do it.'"

Joe Walsh child supportBy Matt Allen


U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh is embroiled in a child support dispute in part because he made one of the biggest mistakes divorced dads can make: he relied on a verbal agreement to modify his child support orders.

Walsh’s ex-wife claims he owes $117,000 in child support and interest. The U.S. congressman from Illinois said he and his ex reached a verbal agreement on child support that they never formalized because they "were both tired of court appearances and the resulting emotional and financial impact on the family," according to court documents.

His argument may be a tough sell to the judge because even if you and your ex-wife made an agreement on the side to lower the child support amount, the court may not recognize the agreement.
