Nowadays, divorce is an increasingly common phenomenon. The decision to divorce can have long-term repercussions on a person, family, and children. Seeking a family counselling might help though it may not work for everyone. A separation is a traumatic event in anyone's life, an emotional process that can stretch over many years, affecting the entire family. Because divorce represents emotional, legal, and financial stress, it may be advisable to turn to the services of a lawyer specialized in divorce/custody.

A lawyer specialized in divorce may be necessary for a couple who wants their marriage to be dissolved. If a couple has reached separation, the tensions are incredibly high. Only a divorce lawyer can defuse these tensions and resolve potential conflicts while ensuring that each member gets the exact percentage of the goods he owns.

Divorce is a legal means to end the marriage by administrative or judicial means. A divorce lawyer is needed for a couple who wants to dissolve the marriage. In the family, the tensions between the persons involved in the trial are high due to the nature of the cases. Orsinger, Nelson, Downing, and Anderson LLP knows how to defuse these tensions and how to solve possible quarrels while ensuring that each member receives a fair share of the goods.

Family law covers areas such as divorce, child custody, and wills. People who are judged in such cases are close, blood relatives, and are well known. When looking for a lawyer for such cases, you need to know the person very well to make sure the lawyer can deal.

A single judge usually hears legal issues of a family nature, but more judges can participate in more extensive trials. In court, there are clerks, secretaries of the judge and a client office. Though court employees cannot tell you what lawyer to choose, they can give you a list of close companies working on such cases. See more here.

Looking online, you can easily find a real list of names and valuable information about lawyers, such as experience, education.  You need an experienced lawyer.  The most common way to hire a suitable lawyer is to interview local law firms. Establish meetings to discuss with lawyers the nature of your case. Thus, the lawyer can figure out how complicated the process will be, and can assess whether he has time for such a commitment.

Tips for getting the most out of your lawyer

1. Do not hide anything, even if you think it is something that would disadvantage you - the client's sincerity has a lot of weight for the success (or failure). The attorney's role is not to judge the client and his actions, but to provide the best solution to the problem, the best advice. Details are vital and, most often, make the difference between success and failure.

2. Do not look for and do not expect absolute justice in court, but to win the case. Justice is about who has the most legal arguments in support of the case (evidence, witnesses, etc.).

3. Do not work with a lawyer you cannot contact (choose another as soon as possible if the situation repeats too often), but do not suffocate him with phone calls, emails, visits. A lawyer who respects his client will promptly inform and promptly answer questions.

4. Do not imagine your lawyer is on the other side just because he greets your opponent's lawyer, or because you see them together on halls or coffee. Lawyers are colleagues, and it is possible that in other cases they are on the same side, defending the common interests of other
Lawyers who hesitate to conclude the assistance/representation contract should be avoided.

5. It is true that you do not always know when you’ll need a lawyer, and you are pressured by the time. You have the chance to be satisfied, but if not, there is the possibility to renounce the contract - it will not be fully recovered - in all cases - the fee paid, but will reduce any damage.

7. When you hire someone for a trial, you should know where you want to go, because it may be possible for all the expenses you make on this occasion to be higher than in the event of winning the case.

Elysium Health and Its Supplement Basis

In partnership with Elysium Health

Eating a healthier diet and exercising more frequently are usually the two habits that we think about when we set a goal to live healthier. But certain supplements can further help us support our well-being.

Elysium Health is a health company  that is translating advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work. Elysium was co-founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente. Dr. Guarente is the chief scientist at Elysium Health and the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. The company has partnered with  prominent academic institutions like Oxford, Harvard, and Cambridge to fulfill its mission of solving the biggest challenges in health.

The leadership team at Elysium Health seeks to serve the broader health community. Eric Marcotulli directs the vision as the CEO of the company. Before becoming the CEO, he worked at Sequoia Capital as its youngest partner to lead growth investing in mobile technologies. Eric earned his BA from Princeton University and his MBA from Harvard Business School. Dan Alminana works as the COO of the company, in charge of the operational and financial elements of Elysium Health, having previously worked in venture capital at JP Morgan Securities, where he launched and led its Silicon Valley venture capital coverage unit.

Elysium Health makes a daily supplement called Basis designed to support cellular health. Nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene are the two ingredients that make up Basis. When combined together, the two increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is an essential coenzyme to many of our cellular functions. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline naturally.

To ensure the effectiveness of Basis, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial. The results of the study, which were published in the online science journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease, proved that Basis increases and sustains NAD+ levels in humans by an average of 40 percent.

To include Basis in your daily routine, purchase it on Elysium Health's website. The company offers Basis in a variety of subscriptions. A regular month-to-month subscription costs $50 each month. The most popular plan is the six-month subscription to Basis for $270, which breaks down to $45 per month. You can also purchase a one-year subscription to Basis for $480, which breaks down to $40 per month. Individual jars cost.

Basis is a vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and nut- free supplement. That allows you to stick to your diet and avoid any related food allergies.

Elysium Health is also in the process of developing new products. These focus on cognitive health, muscle function, skin health, and circadian rhythms. These products are currently in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.

Give Your Children A Good Financial Future With A Family Budget

A government economist caused a stir recently when he announced that a family of five only needs P10,000 to survive and quickly corrected it to more than four times that amount. If you’re not sure of how much you should be spending either, perhaps it’s time to look at preparing a household budget, the needs of a family are constantly changing but there are ways to adapt without having to spend lots of money. Whatever your income, whether you’re trying to tighten your belts or just want to feel more in control of your spending, drawing up a budget for the whole family works best if everyone is involved.

Start With A Clean Slate

Obviously, your children don’t have to know everything about the family finances, just that you would like them to feel more included in the day to day planning of your family life. Household debt is still on the rise in the Philippines so before you think about how to allocate your money in a budget so that you don’t overspend in the future, you need to face up to any problems with debts or outstanding bills. Then you can start thinking about saving for times when you need a little extra money.

Help Your Children to Spend Wisely

If your children are aware of areas you want to cut back on or that you are saving for a special occasion, they will be more inclined to agree when you have to say to no to a new toy or an extra treat. Last year’s “New Generations Philippines 2017” report showed that 83% of Filipino parents were worried about their kids being able to save money in the future. Giving your children an allowance when you feel they are ready, is a great way to help them understand the value of money and learn how to make their own good decisions about how it is spent.

Go Shopping With Your Children

While many bills are fixed, the amount a household spends on food shopping can almost always be reduced. Filipinos already tend to choose retailers that offer good prices and promotions so if you take your children shopping with you, you can choose food together, encourage them to look for offers and bargains and help them to learn how to spend sensibly when they are older.

Don’t put off drawing up a family budget, it doesn’t have to be scary  You’ll feel better facing up to any financial problems that you have and can then look forward to teaching your children about family finances without worrying about money.
