Annual Memberships and Subscriptions to Consider for Children After the Divore


Getting divorced when you have children can be extremely complicated. There are several factors to consider through mediation besides custody. One of the things that you should focus on is annual memberships and subscriptions that your family may have been a part of. By listing all of them and breaking them down, you can work with a family divorce attorney to sort through everything and help maintain a proper balance for your children and their family life.

Park and Museum Passes

Many families purchase season-long passes to local attractions like amusement parks, museums, and other locations like an aquarium. If this is the case, then you may want to consider how these passes will be split up among you and your spouse. If you have more than one pass, then it may be a good idea to give one pass to one parent and another pass to another parent. Splitting up the passes may also depend on the custody agreement. For example, if one parent gets the children during the weekends, it may be better for them to have the passes when the children have more free time. A lawyer can help you determine the value of these passes and how they impact the divorce proceedings.

Subscription Boxes

Many families have started purchasing subscription boxes for their children. These monthly boxes feature a variety of themes, including educational activities, toys, and clothes. When a family is splitting up, it's important to decide where these boxes will be sent. In some cases, a lawyer may recommend cancelling the subscription service temporarily. This allows them to become a non-factor in the divorce. Once everything is finalized, you can choose to purchase a separate box for your child. This box can get delivered to your current home or a new location.

Digital Streaming Services

Both parents and children may have a number of subscriptions to a variety of digital streaming services. For children, they may have spent multiple years watching their favorite shows, building up recommended lists, and truly creating a custom account. If you want to help keep control of these accounts, then you can talk with a divorce lawyer about keeping them as part of the custody agreement. This allows you to have a single name on the account and keep full control of the billing. Along with television apps, this may also relate to streaming apps featured on tablets or mobile devices.

A divorce lawyer can help answer any questions you may have and will help break down all the different elements of your case. A consultation is the first step in understanding all of these factors.

This blog will show you what to expect as you work your way thorough the adoption process and give you a few ideas of the things that you should leave up to your family attorney.
