A wide range of considerations may come into play for those who are going through a divorce, including deciding which approach is appropriate. Many couples opt for divorce mediation and there are a number of reasons why mediation is advantageous. For example, mediation can save time and money for both parties, as we have written about on this blog. However, other factors may need to be reviewed even if you and your partner have already agreed that mediation is best. For example, your social media activity may need to be considered, especially if you and your spouse are trying to work together to end your marriage in a more amicable manner.
Like many of the clients in Jersey City that our team here at Carolann M Aschoff PC has worked with in the past, you may be going in to your divorce proceedings concerned about how much you might be required to pay in alimony. These fears are natural, particularly if you were the primary wage-earner in your home. And while you might not have an issue providing your ex-spouse with some degree of financial assistance until they are fully capable of supporting themselves, you certainly do not want to be faced with an alimony obligation that put an excess burden on you.
