Divorce for Millennials
Property Division Issues
One of the main issues in divorce is the division of financial property. Although division of assets is already a complex issue to navigate through, it can be more complicated among millennial couples. These days, it is common for young couples to live together, invest in financial property together, or even create a joint checking or savings account before marriage.
When you are experiencing challenges in your relationship, our experienced team of attorneys at Alexandra Geczi, PLLC are here to help you resolve these unique issues before you tie the knot.
A properly drafted prenuptial agreement can protect your assets in the event of a divorce. It is common for young couples to marry later, with women marrying at the average age of 27 and men marrying around 29. One of the top reasons millennials marry at a later time in life is because they want to be more financially stable. They’re saving up their financial assets, whether it be for a mortgage or for their future children.
Drafting a prenuptial agreement has become less taboo over the years, as more young couples decide they’d like a peace of mind when it comes to protecting their hard-earned assets. Unfortunately, most prenuptial agreements are drafted poorly and many of them do not stand up in court, which is why it’s important to consult an attorney to avoid any ambiguous or unenforceable clauses that might not protect your assets.

Child Custody & Support
Some millennial couples have children while others do not, and some young couples decide to cohabitate and raise children without getting married. When minor children are in the picture, divorce or separation can get very complicated, especially if a couple is cohabitating and unmarried. Although unmarried mothers have a primary right to custody over their children, fathers have a right to pursue custody for a number of reasons. Ideally, the father would express his wishes to stay involved in the child’s life and work out custody and/or visitation rights with the mother, but many times these situations are not ideal.
Regardless of marital status or who has the rights to custody, both parents are obligated to financially support any minor children they have. If you believe you are owed child support from your child’s other parent, then you have the right to pursue legal judgements from the court in to order to force the other parent to contribute.
