If a divorced couple agrees to a bird's nest co-parenting arrangement, does that reduce or even eliminate the amount of child support that the father pays?
In the movie, "When Harry Met Sally," there's that classic scene of a man and a woman bickering over whether or not their new home needs a wagon wheel shaped coffee table.

If you are contemplating filing for divorce, you are no doubt concerned about keeping ownership and control of important marital assets. You may be worried that your newly estranged wife could withdraw all of the funds from your joint bank accounts or even sell jewelry and other valuables that belong to both of you.
Being recently divorced is a time to start anew and regain some independence. It also means you can dust off that beer bottle chandelier and faux bearskin rug and display them with pride, if you want.
Whether you're a manly man or a man with refined taste, decorating your own place is a great way to express yourself without any second-party criticism.
But before you start pulling out boxed-up items from yesteryear, do some research. Some of today's decorating ideas may fit your character better than those beat-up posters from the 1990s.
