Divorce talk: Splitting assets before they are combined is tough

Getting married is a significant step for any person in New Jersey. Along with the excitement of planning the wedding, it might be wise to take time out to discuss essential issues -- those which might impact the longevity of the marriage. Certain aspects have proved to be the most frequent causes of marital problems that could even lead to divorce. Two people with entirely different backgrounds will come together and be challenged to make it work -- and last forever.

Factors in determining New Jersey child custody arrangements

If you're a parent about to — or even considering the possibility of — divorce, the biggest issue on your mind is likely your children and how ending your marriage may affect your relationship and parenting time with them. Divorce brings many stressful changes, from financial to emotional and more, but for divorcing parents, the most worrisome matter of all is typically child custody.

Divorce: How valid is your prenuptial agreement?

Many New Jersey couples sign prenuptial agreements to ensure the interests of both spouses will be protected if the marriage should end. The typical purpose is to specify the division of property in the event of a divorce in a manner that differs from the process prescribed by state laws. However, for such an agreement to be valid, specific legal requirements must be met.

Stalking a reality for some going through divorce

A study done five years ago showed that stalking is much more prevalent than what many may think. Figures indicated that 1.5 percent of Unites States adults have been victims of stalkers. The statistics drastically increase to 3.3 percent for divorced or separated people. While this is not a new phenomenon, cheap electronic gadgets and apps on cellphones make it very easy to keep tabs on someone.

Preparing for a divorce? A few pointers

When a marriage has entered troubled waters, there is always that one final straw that breaks the camel's back. A working theory among lawyers is that a last holiday or vacation together is often this final straw. Interestingly a study taking data from divorce filings during the last 15 years has shown that in the United States, there are drastic increases in the number of people filing for divorce in March and August – after the winter holidays and summer vacation.
