Child custody: Securing the child's best interests

Most people want what is best for their children and will do a lot to ensure that this happens. When a couple decides to part ways, the children are often caught in the middle.  The fact is that in many divorces, child custody and support are among the more difficult issues to deal with. Let's be honest - there is a lot at stake!

Division of assets in a divorce: Court or no court?

It is sometimes estimated that in the United States, there is only a 50 percent chance of a first marriage to survive while second marriages only have a 40 percent chance of succeeding. Though some may quibble about the numbers, it is clear that divorce rates are high. Many New Jersey couples may find themselves having to make decisions about who gets what as they prepare to go their separate ways.

Marital risk factors: Is your relationship headed for divorce?

Just like every person is different, so is every marriage. No matter what the state of the relationship, no one besides you and your spouse – not experts, not friends or relatives – can decide whether ending your marriage is the right decision. However, if you're already experiencing doubts as to whether your relationship is working, marriage experts have determined that there are several factors indicative of a higher likelihood of divorce.

Children and divorce: What is the best for all?

The majority of New Jersey parents may want what is best for their children. Some decisions touching the lives of children are easy to make, but others may be a lot more difficult. One such difficult decision to make is whether to divorce or stay together for the sake of the children.

Child support -- providing financial stability to your child

Financially supporting a child regardless of where he or she lives or with whom might seem like a no-brainer, but it can be an incredibly complex legal matter. Many parents must deal with child support matters during other stressful periods of life, such as divorce or during serious life changes.

Making sure assets are protected in case of divorce

Couples planning to get married hardly want to think about the possibility that their marriage may not work out. Unfortunately, the fact that 45 percent of all marriages end in divorce is a clear indication that it may be prudent to address finances with a soon-to-be spouse. While many New Jersey couples may feel that, by discussing finances, they seem to not believe their marriage will survive, this is not really the case.

How to secure the best possible divorce settlement?

The decision to end a marriage is not only difficult emotionally, but also requires many tough decisions. New Jersey couples in the midst of a divorce may benefit from taking note of some important aspects to consider when negotiating a settlement agreement. No matter what the circumstances, one should never negate the importance of safeguarding one's financial security.
