When you recognize that you are disagreeing with your spouse more than you are enjoying happy and content moments, it may be time to reevaluate your relationship and what changes have caused you to experience increased discord. Depending on the nature of your relationship and the conditions that are contributing to the contention, you may have the chance to discuss your concerns with your spouse in Hawaii before resorting to divorce.

Getting a divorce can feel like an emotional rollercoaster. What may make it even worse is when states put regulations in place that lengthen the process.

Gifts for someone going through a divorce

Holiday gifts are a reflection of concern for other people and a natural desire to build relationships with friends, family members and even casual acquaintances. Gifts can range from a simple gesture of appreciation (like the tip you give your dog groomer or mailman) to a much deeper message of understanding and kinship toward someone you love.

How you can tell if your spouse is hiding assets during divorce

Divorce can cause emotions to run high and instill a "me vs. them" attitude. It can cause otherwise sane and stable people to become angry and vindictive. This can be due to seeking custody of your children or accumulating more of the assets once the property is split up. What can easily happen is that one person in the divorce may decide to illegally hide assets they don't want exposed during the divorce.
