How divorce affects older adults' lives

Divorce is on the rise for older adults. Older people in Kansas who get a divorce should be careful about potentially adverse health effects of divorce. The chronic stress and depression associated with divorce can exacerbate health problems such as Parkinson's disease, diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure, and it can weaken the immune system overall.

Contracts as tools to limit costs

A cost overrun could make a construction project in Kansas less profitable. Therefore, it is essential that the involved parties take steps to control costs. This may be done through language in the construction contract itself. For example, the contract could state that multiple bids be sought in an effort to obtain lower prices through competition.

Divorce, older adults and finances

Some older adults in Kansas who divorce may find themselves struggling financially. Divorce is on the rise in this age group, with people 50 and older divorcing at a rate that is twice as high as it was in 1990. The rate is three times higher for those 65 and older.

When plans for amicable divorce turn into a child custody battle

If you're among Kansas parents who are currently navigating divorce proceedings, you may relate to those who are facing challenging child custody problems. Like most good parents, you want what is best for your kids and perhaps your main goal was to simply negotiate a fair and agreeable divorce settlement and co-parenting plan, then move on in life with your children, leaving the past (and your marital problems) behind.
