Damage Limitation Legal Advice For Men Going Through Separation

Damage Limitation Legal Advice For Men Going Through Separation

Some relationships don’t work out, but that’s just human nature because our lives are complicated and personalities change over time. Men are starting to realise that they don’t need to accept some kind of social pressure that has previously made them feel as if they’re the guilty party, by default. Upon their partner’s separation request being legally filed, men have taken more of an active role, to know what their rights are and what the best practical tips are for coping with this challenging circumstance. In the courts, you need to commit to an actual dialogue with your soon to be ex-partner and with her lawyer, to get a rounded understanding of the specific demands put forth. No matter how many separation cases a court has gone through, every single case is treated individually, so there’s no end-all-be-all advice on how to handle a particular situation. However there are some basic steps, men can take to better prepare themselves for putting their case to the legal authorities.

Should you move out?

Some men find that keeping the peace is better than arguing when the divorce papers have already set the wheels in motion. They want to keep things civil and try to be respectful to their partner for the sake of the good times they previously had, or the fact that they don’t want to alarm the children. If your partner is reasonable and cooperative, that’s a bonus, but sometimes emotions get the better of both parties are hostilities boil over. The stereotypical thing to do is to move out, but men are no more guilty than women, so think twice before booking a room in a cheap motel to pass the time. There are financial advantages and disadvantages if you’re the higher income earner, by staying in the house, that you should discuss with a lawyer.

Get the proper legal team

Don’t settle for a legal team that’s cheap because they’re likely to be inexperienced. Family law help is crucial for men in this day and age because it’s more likely that your former partner will get custody of children; statistically speaking. A good attorney will inform you of the legal obligations most men are given such as child support, spousal support such as alimony, parenting plans and protective orders. They will help you gain a better perspective of the culture in which the law is interpreted so that you can protect your financial and mental health in the best possible way.

Consider settling

Separating can get ugly, and the fact that going to court can be green-lit, the tone can amplify in seriousness and stakes become higher. Some cases might go on for years, but your ex-partner and her lawyer can sometimes be willing to avoid a long lengthy battle and hold an agreement outside of the courts. If you can, settle outside of court as this will drastically cut legal fees, and you may get a better deal from her lawyer than you might from a judge. Workout a legally binding stature and think of a long-term agreement that you’re comfortable with, then start negotiating. Think of the things that matter most, such as the children, property and savings accounts.

Escaping The “ZONE”, 🚷THE FRIEND ZONE🚷

By Guest Blogger, Cy Bryon

Escaping The “ZONE”

🚷THE FRIEND ZONE🚷

 

So you have this friend, you’re both attracted to one another, you decide to start messing with each other, but what use to be so simple, now all of a sudden, begins to become confusing and awkward. Then you realize, “oh shit” I stepped in feelings!

Life suddenly begins to change.

You two find yourself out and about, with what was once a friendly introduction of one another, now requires thought and a possible label. And now in the day of social media, they have still yet to invent this emoji to describe your current relationship status! (So I’ll go with 😡 lol.)

You have no easy answer without explaining the entire situation. “Yeah, I’m single but I’m dating X. I mean we’re not in a relationship yet but…..” or “I guess I am seeing someone right now but we’re not exclusive so….

It happens more and more frequently everywhere you go. It never fails, someone seems to always ask, or assumes that the other party is your “girlfriend” or “boyfriend” and its directed at one of you. The terrible awkward silence that will inevitably follow for a few seconds after is seriously like a personal version of the ball drop on Y2K. (If you’re old enough to understand that metaphor haha…)

Once again, something once so simple, now is like your very breath depends upon the answer that is to come. For example, you’re out with other friends, and in passing, you see each other. You internally freak out, not sure what level of acknowledgement should suffice in this scenario. Do you just say hello without any physical contact? Do you hug? Do you share an appropriate intimate gesture? Hell, you don’t even know what is considered appropriate anymore because you now are so cautious, like a child with their favorite toy. You don’t want to risk breaking it because you’ve had it so long and you know if anything happened to it nothing from that point in life would ever be the same again.

Oh, and not to add to all the confusion and awkwardness that exists already, we’ve forgot the most fun part. Yep, that moment you run into an ex, yeah, that one you had to explain to numerous times that there was never anything between you and your best ‘friend’, who ironically is, yep, your new romantic interest. Enjoy trying to explain the ‘it just sorta happened’ story. This is where hope for oblivion becomes your new best friend .

Anyway, as time begins to pass and you’ve become accustom to your newfound awkwardness, you’ll begin to see that you unintentionally begin to subconsciously include them more and more in your future. And when making plans, you begin to plan for two. On the flipside, you become hesitant about bringing them to an event or situation that involves a plus one. I mean you want to bring them, but you don’t want to face the barrage of questions you get before you decide you are official. You know the whole official “What are we” conversation. (AHHHHHHHH not a Label…)

You may notice yourself getting (secretly) jealous when other people are hitting on the person you’re with. You’re not at that point where you are in a secure relationship yet, so it worries you a little bit, although you don’t want to worry. In fact, you may begin to worry about why your worrying! You might begin to question everything and making sense of nothing.

Uggggh, why is it so difficult to do something that seems like it should be so simple?

You find yourself hanging out with a bunch of friends who are in relationships, and all of a sudden, you realize that you’re both the only ones who are technically not in a full-blown out relationship.

You are not alone.

I’ve heard so many times in life that those in the best relationships are often best friends. However, I have noticed that a majority of those relationships started as complete strangers and over time they grew into best friends. It is a difficult road to take when you’re already good friends and want to venture into a relationship. So many things become involved that normally wouldn’t be questioned when entering this form of relationship. You often know so much more about the person and there are the risk of losing the friendship forever if things go south between the two of you.

It can be one of the most difficult decisions you may ever make. Then again, it could be one of the most beautiful relationships you could ever have.

How do you get to the next level?

My advice is after you step back and weigh the risk, be open to conversation about it. One of the worst feelings in the world is living with regret of your true feelings never being revealed. Like Garth Brooks says, and I quote, “ Tell that someone that you love, just what you’re thinking of, if tomorrow never comes.”

Dealing with Big Family Changes

Dealing with Big Family Changes

There is no doubt that all families go through their ups and downs. Certain situations are very difficult to deal with and can put a great deal of strain on relationships. However, it is important that you take a step back and think carefully about the best ways you can deal with the issues head-on. Here, we will take a closer look at four of the most common complicated family situations and the ways in which you can deal with them.

 

Relationship Breakdown

It happens to many people in life that a relationship they thought would last forever breaks down. If there are children involved, this becomes even more complicated and you may need the support of a legal team like https://compellingcounsel.com/. Ultimately, you need to try to separate the practical issues from the emotional ones. If you do have kids, they shouldn’t hear you bad mouthing your former partner and you should make it very clear that nothing that has happened is their fault. Relying on your support network of friends and family is very important during this difficult time.

 

Financial Problems

First of all, it always helps to have a backup plan if you suddenly find yourself in a difficult financial situation. For example, if you lose your main job, the internet has opened up a range of revenue streams that can pull you through difficult times. Writing out a household budget with a list of what is essential and what is extra can help you to prioritize your finances. Ultimately, being honest with all members of your family and getting them to support your new lifestyle is hugely important.

 

Moving to a New Home

 

Moving house is often ranked as one of the most stressful situations a person can go through in their life. If you have any contacts in your new neighbourhood, you should get in touch with them as soon as possible as they can help you settle into the area by introducing you to others and telling you some of the most popular places to go. If you have kids that you are bringing along with you, you should try to reassure them that they will settle into the new neighbourhood soon and be able to make the friends they are looking for. Moving to a new place should be seen as an opportunity rather than something is going to have a negative impact on all your lives.

 

New Baby

 

There is no doubt that having a new baby is a monumental change to any family. If you have older children, they may see the new arrival as a threat to their position in the household so you should take steps to reassure them that they are not being replaced. If this is your first baby, you should be as prepared as possible by making practical changes to your household and readying your support network to help you out through this joyous but also very challenging time.

Moving In Together: The Post-Modern Dilemma

By Guest Blogger Stefan S.

Moving In Together: The Post-Modern Dilemma

 

Are you at the stage in your relationship where you hear maybe the most exciting or most dreaded words that can be heard in a relationship? Want to move in together? Is that the end of singledom? Or is it exciting for you to move in with the love of your life and start a new chapter in your relationship, together? Well you don’t have to look too far online to find both successful and disastrous versions of the ‘moving in together’ dilemma. Just look at Snapchat celebrities or celebs on Instagram and Twitter. They all chronicle their lives living with their partner, and many times it’s more of a farce than it is a real relationship.

 

For the regular person, who doesn’t have the benefits of celebrity, moving in together can be a huge step that might either scare them, or excite them, since that’s their long term goal. Many women want to move in and live with their serious boyfriends, to secure their place in that man’s life, and to possibly change that living situation into something more permanent, life marriage. On the other side of the battle of the sexes, men usually want to stay single and living the bachelor life as long as possible, so they can enjoy their time with their friends, and date as many women as they like, avoiding commitment and avoid settling down for as long as possible.

 

The Reality

 

But in actuality, the truth is quite different. Nowadays, it’s more women who want to avoid having to move in because they are so busy with their careers and building a life for themselves, that the last thing they want to worry about is having to be bound to another person, let alone a man that expects some babying. The modern woman sees being tied down also as a hindrance to her success and does not want to be obliged to  perform any of the sexist roles that were upheld by previous generations. She doesn’t want to come home and have to cook for someone or clean after another person when she too has spent all day at the office. Going to the gym, seeing friends, and doing the general chores around maintaining a home for a single person is time consuming enough, let alone adding another person into the mix, who might not contribute. That’s why even though Snapchat celebrities make living together look so glamorous, they have teams of maids and staff to take care of the details, the regular person does not.

 

The Necessity

 

Sometimes, moving in together happens only due to necessity. It’s because the modern life for singles in an urban setting is so busy. No one has the opportunity to really spend quality time together anymore. That’s the price we pay for living such an ultra modern lifestyle. Moving in together means you can spend more time together and see if being together will work in the future. Doing all the domestic stuff together instead of just dating and doing the romantic stuff, has changed the nature of dating and relationships. The courting process if basically extinct, and the getting to know each other actually happens in the raw, face to face, living the hum-drum everyday. But that’s the only way people can be together enough to know if they want to be married or involved with each other long term. So, yes moving in together might be scary or exciting as Snapchat celebrities make it out to be, but it’s not as surprising or as controversial as it used to be.

Saying Goodbye To That Relationship And Starting Fresh

Saying Goodbye To That Relationship And Starting Fresh

It’s always a tough time when you reach the end of a relationship. After all, you might have been with the person a number of years. And they probably have been the closest person to you. And if you are married, it can be even tougher as you have to go through a tricky divorce. But it’s important to remember there is a fresh start at the end of this difficult time. In fact, here is some help to ensure you can say goodbye to that relationship for good.

 

Put pictures away in a box

 

It’s always photos which can spark up memories of your life with your ex. In fact, you can just glance at a picture of the wedding, or even a photo of your first date, and it can send you back to the time. Therefore, to help you through to the other side, you need to remove all photos in your home of your other half. You might not want to throw them in the bin. After all, you can’t wipe the memories completely from your life. Therefore, get a box which you can fill with pictures of the past relationship. Putting them away can help you move on with your life. As for social media, it’s a good idea to delete photographs of you with your old partner. After all, it will ensure you get no reminders of the past relationship on your timeline. And you might want to unfriend them. That way, it will stop you becoming a regular stalker on their profile!

 

Get rid of any permanent reminders

 

While you might be able to put old photos away in a box, it can be harder when it comes to more permanent reminders. For example, you might still be wearing your wedding ring on your finger. But if you keep seeing it when you are going about your day, it’s going to make it tricky to say goodbye to your relationship. Therefore, take the ring off as soon as possible and put it away in the drawer. Also, if you have any tattoos of your partner’s name, it’s now time to get rid of it. After all, you don’t want this permanent reminder of your ex on your skin. In fact, you might want to book in for tattoo removal to ensure it’s a distant memory. And with these permanent reminders gone, you can move on with your life.

 

Look into moving place

 

You might have spent the last few years living with your other half. But now you have split, your partner might be letting you stay in the humble abode. But it’s always a good idea to start somewhere new if you want to say goodbye to the relationship for good. After all, there will be a ton of memories you will have shared together in the place. And it will always feel like the home of the two of you. Therefore, give your notice to the landlord or sell up to ensure you can find somewhere new to start again.

 

And remember to have a final chat with your ex. So many couples leave things unsaid. But to ensure you can move on, it’s time to have a chat with your other half to ensure you say everything you want to!

How To Baby Proof Your Home

How To Baby Proof Your Home

Flickr

 

So you’ve got a baby on the way? – Congratulations! This is such an exciting time in your life right now, and you should enjoy every single step of the way.

One thing that will need to be done though is baby proofing your home. Babies are tiny, and everything will feel like a possible danger towards your baby, and this will scare you to death. But you shouldn’t worry, there are simple things that you can do to ensure the safety of your little one – allowing you to relax a whole lot when he or she finally arrives.

Here’s how.

 

 

Safety precautions

First, you should think about how safe your house is in general. It starts with the safety precautions like making sure you have smoke detectors and a carbon monoxide detector – people forget about this, but it’s so important as this is a silent killer. Unless you have a carbon-monoxide detector, you will never know. These should be on each floor of your home.

 

You should have a fire extinguisher in your kitchen, the water heater shouldn’t be any higher than 120 degrees, and you will want to cover all the electrical outlets with plastic caps.

 

Pick up what you can, and then vacuum away what you can’t. Babies will grab everything, and the first place it’s going to go is in their mouth, so you’re going to want to look at the best vacuum cleaners to suck up anything nasty.

 

Also, if you different levels to your house, install safety gates at the top and bottom of the stairs so your baby can’t get up or down.

 

 

The kitchen

This is probably one of the most important areas in the house because there are tons of hot things in there, and you can easily get distracted while cooking – even if you turn your back for just a moment.

 

Look at what’s inside your low cabinets and drawers. Most people tend to keep their cleaning products at the bottom, so if that’s the case, you’ll want to move everything to somewhere out of reach. Remove anything that’s sharp, and also any plastic bags as these can be a suffocation hazard.

 

Remember that once your baby can climb, they will be able to be in reach of the top cabinets and even the work surfaces, so you may want to invest in some stove-knob covers which will prevent your child from turning on any burners.

 

If you keep your pills and vitamins in the kitchen, make sure they are impossible for your little one to get a hold of. If your child does see them, they will most likely give them a try – they look like candy! Why wouldn’t they put them in their mouth?

 

Even the innocent things like magnets on your fridge from your holiday last year, may seem like a lovely souvenir, but unfortunately are the perfect thing for your baby to choke on. So put them somewhere safe and out of reach.

 

 

The living room

Cushioned corners will become your new best friend. You can put there on all the corners and edges that are exposed. This means any tables, shelves, and hearths. If your baby does topple over, they won’t be met with a hard pointy edge; instead, it’ll be a squidgy landing.

 

Don’t leave the risk of things from falling over; this means any bookcases or cabinets you have, mount them to the wall and secure the tv to whatever it’s sitting on.

 

You should also move anything away from your windows that your child could climb up – especially if you keep your windows open in the summertime. And if you have any blinds or curtains with cords – get rid of them. Your baby can get caught in the string and get it around their neck.

 

In general, anything you don’t want your baby touching or playing with should just be moved and put somewhere safe.

 

 

The bathroom

Don’t ever leave your child alone in the bathroom. It’s a simple as that, and even more importantly – if you have a bathtub, never ever turn your back on them – even if it’s just for a second. Babies can drown in just a couple inches of water, so always be on the ball. If the phone rings or the door knocks, bring your baby with you.

 

Move any cleaning products and put them somewhere else, as well as any electrical appliances like your hair dryer. And don’t leave any razors lying around the sink!

 

 

The baby’s room

It’s likely that you have already sorted out the baby’s room first, but if you haven’t, there are some areas that you should focus on.

 

If you’ve bought a brand new crib, then it should be absolutely fine, but if you’ve been given a second-hand crib, it’s wise to check it out properly to make sure it is up to standard.

That means making sure it’s stable, and nothing wobbles, and if there are bars on the crib, nothing can be pulled off.

 

When your child is under the age of 6 months, don’t put any cuddling toys, pillows and loose blankets in the crib. This is because they are still so vulnerable; they can easily suffocate on things like this if they cover their face as they sleep. So keep these for when they’re toddlers instead.

 

Make sure you have thick, soft carpet or rugs on the floor to cushion any falls your little one will have, and make sure there are no sharp edges or corners, (like you did for the living room.)

 

 

As long as you have some common sense, you shouldn’t worry about anything. There’s a lot to think about when you’re a new parent; it’s very daunting, and you are bound to feel pressure to do everything perfectly, but we all make mistakes. If your baby has a fall, don’t beat yourself up about it – as much as you’d like to wrap them up in bubble wrap – that’s just not realistic.

You are going to be an amazing Mom, don’t worry.

6 Ways of Getting Your Body Ready for Summer

By Guest Blogger Diana S.

6 Ways of Getting Your Body Ready for Summer

 

Summer is almost here and it is time to get our bodies ready for it. Long days at the beach are slowly closing in and you want to be sure you are ready to rock your new bathing suit and enjoy the summer. If you think you’ve put on a little weight or you just want to tone up your muscles, here are some of the changes that need to be incorporated.

Stay hydrated

Water is essential throughout the whole year, but during the summer you have to pay attention to it even more. Summer can be harsh on our bodies since strong sun dries out our skin and we lose plenty of water by sweating. That’s why you need to start drinking plenty of water right now. Additionally, if you are working out for the summer, the lack of water will make your workout sessions less effective because hydration is essential for performance and fat-burning.

Cut back on processed food

Bread, pasta, bagels, crackers and cookies are all filled with bad processed carbohydrates that will do you no good. They certainly are tasty, but such foods are filled with sodium and preservatives that will hold water in your body and cause bloating. So, if you are craving some food and you are at the store, check the ingredients listed on the package. If you cannot read or pronounce the ingredients, don’t eat it. Instead, opt for small servings of fresh fruit and veggies that will actually help you get ready for summer.

Increase the intake of natural diuretics

In order to lose a few pounds and get rid of all the toxins in your body, you should rely on natural diuretics. Such foods will make it easier for your body to get rid of excess fluids. These include cucumbers, lemons, green tea, asparagus and any other foods that have a higher concentration of potassium, vitamin C, magnesium and caffeine. Plus, such foods are rich in antioxidants that will protect your skin from the negative effects of the sun.

Exercise more

If you want a bikini body, then you must not skip exercising. Get your gym wear ready and commit to an intensive full-body strength workout at least three times a week. Such a workout will burn the calories, boost your metabolism and help you develop muscles. Also, make your belly and bottom top priorities. Glutes (bottom muscles) are some of the biggest muscles in your body and they will require more energy and effort, which will result in more burnt calories. As far as your belly is concerned, it is one of the essential elements of looking good, so commit to some core exercises three times a week.

Reduce alcohol

Every type of alcohol contains plenty of bad calories that will only pile up. So, if you’re used to drinking every once in a while, try cutting back. You will reduce the calorie intake and you will feel better overall. Plus, you will manage to preserve a healthy metabolism and it will be much easier to exercise and get better results with a limited alcohol intake.

Try fake tanning

Lastly, you can try out fake tanning and be completely ready for summer. You don’t want to show up on the beach pale and almost see-through and lack of tan might get you some serious sunburns. So, try out different tanning options before you go out and enjoy the sun.

Don’t wait the last minute to start working on your summer body. Commit to exercising and watch your diet and you will be ready in no time.

What Should I Do If My Siblings Contest The Will?

What Should I Do If My Siblings Contest The Will?

The death of a loved one is a troubling time for everybody involved. The dividing up of the possessions can often be one of the hardest parts because it feels like a final end to that person’s life. You’re left with a big box of reminders that make you think about that person every time you look inside and that’s if everything goes smoothly. If there are any complications then the whole process could get a lot worse than it already is. While it might not seem like a time for sibling rivalry, it is fairly common for people to contest the will of the deceased if they think it’s unfair. It’s a horrible situation to find yourself in and it’s not going to be easy to deal with, but if somebody decides to contest the will, you’ll have no choice but to deal with it. Keep these things in mind if you want to make it as pain-free as possible.

Be Civil

 

You’re likely to be feeling a lot of strong emotions during this period and that will be made a lot worse by somebody throwing a spanner in the works like this. The natural reaction is likely to be anger, but this won’t help anybody, it will only fuel the flames and make things ugly. You need to keep a handle on your sibling rivalry. While you’re going through the process of dealing with any contentions to the will, keep any discussions about it confined to official proceedings and don’t have any contact with your siblings outside of that until all of the decisions have been made.

 

Challenge Their Challenge

 

Challenging a will isn’t something that you can do easily. It’s a legally binding document that holds up in most cases. You can’t contest it because you think that your siblings have got more than you and it isn’t fair. It is up to the deceased to decide how the assets are split up and that decision is final. If your sibling does have a legitimate reason to challenge the will, get yourself representation from somewhere like Nussbaum Family Lawyers and defend against their challenge. There are only four main reasons that a will can be contested; the first reason is to do with the witnesses to the will signing. If there were not the requisite two witnesses present, it can be challenged as it is technically invalid. The second reason, and one of the most common reasons that a will is challenged, is the mental capacity of the deceased at the time of signing. If that person was not considered to be in a completely fit state of mind when they signed the will, then the decisions that they made can be brought into question. The same sort of challenge can be made if the person was under the influence of alcohol or drugs when they signed. The last reason is if the will was signed as a result of fraud, for example, if the person signed it believing it was another document.

 

Avoid It Altogether

 

People often try to challenge a will based on a specific item or something similar. Children that have cared for their parents often feel that they are entitled to more than the rest of the family. If there is one particular issue that is causing all of the disputes, why not discuss it with your sibling before you get any lawyers involved and see if there is anything that you can work out. This will save you a lot of time and money in the long run and can help you avoid any bad feeling between you and your family.

The Internet provides people with a whole host of options when it comes to making money. New ways to get a little bit of extra income are popping up all the time. But, taking advantage of them is something too few people manage to do. This leaves most of the opportunity in the hands of a small group. This is a shame because it doesn’t have to be this way. Instead, you can break into the world of online income without having to spend a penny; you just need the right ventures. To help you out, this post will be going through some of the best ways to make a little bit of extra on the Internet.

 

Auction sites have changed the way that commerce works. Nowadays, instead of buying an item from a business, it’s possible to buy them directly from other people. Services like eBay have lead the way in this sort of selling. And, the platform has made it possible to make loads of money through their tools. As long as you have something to sell; you’ll almost certainly be able to find a buyer. You just have to make an advert and pay a small fee when the product sells. The fee will be based on the value of the sale; so, you’ll always make some money. And, once the advert is up; you just have to ship the item. And, this can be done with a company like https://www.shiply.com/, who will be able to move the items for you. This sort of work will usually pay off nicely.

 

Selling items on eBay is a great way to make some money. But, you have to put work into at least once a day. And, this means that, for some, eBay will be too much effort. Instead, it can be better to build something which can host some adverts for other businesses. Options like blogs and Youtube channels can be great. But, of course, these sorts of businesses will take a long time to start up. During this time, you will have to be relying on other sources of income to live. But, once something like this gets going in full force; it will be much easier to manage than an eBay store. This option is best for those that have the time to create content. But, also have the patience to wait for a good return.

 

As internet speeds increase, it’s getting easier and easier for people to do their work from home. Businesses have started hiring people on a freelance basis. This enables them to save loads of money on their employees. And, it gives you the chance to make loads of money. The sorts of jobs you can find are very varied; from web design to script writing. So, it’s worth having a look around. Websites like Freelancer.com or www.upwork.com are great to give you some inspiration. But, it’s best to look for dedicated services to find something perfect for you.

 

Hopefully, this will inspire you to start looking at some new ways to make money on the internet. Most people already pay for this resource; so, it makes sense to use it to its full potential. Just go out there and work hard, and you’ll have some sort of success.
