Divorce, alimony and job loss

If you are getting ready to file for a divorce, or you are already in the middle of one, you could have a number of concerns. For example, you might be worried about what will happen with regard to child custody or you could be stressed out about adjusting to single life. However, the financial side of divorce must be given special attention, and there are many ways in which your finances could be impacted by your marriage coming to an end. Moreover, some people are facing other financial struggles in life, such as those who have lost their job, which can add to their divorce-related financial stress.

New Year’s resolutions and family law

Every year, many people focus on improving their lives in the new year, whether they want to eat healthier, get more exercise or accomplish some other type of goal (such as something related to their career). However, some people may have New Year’s resolutions regarding their divorce or other family law issues. For example, someone may make a resolution that they will stay caught up on their child support in the new year or find the courage to handle some stressful family law matter that they have been pushing off.

Detailing the different types of alimony in New Jersey

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. 

Family violence over a divorce issue

Ending a marriage can turn life upside down in many ways, and this is especially true for some unfortunate people who have been subjected to family violence or threats of violence. In Jersey City and across the state of New Jersey, those who are going through a divorce or struggling with post-divorce matters such as child support payments or custody and visitation may experience stress, depression or even anger. Sadly, these strong emotions can be so severe that they push someone to carry out an act of violence or threaten to harm someone, and victims need to take action swiftly.

Financial challenges associated with family law issues

Those who are going through a variety of family law matters may face various hurdles, whether they are struggling with strong emotions such as depression or anger or they lose a custody dispute. However, the financial side of divorce can be especially difficult for many people to work through and there are a number of ways in which divorce can affect one’s finances.

Divorce and broken engagement -- not that different

When an engaged couple decides to break the engagement, it is not all that different from the end of a marriage. Both decisions go hand-in-hand with feelings of loss, emotional pain and turmoil. Like in the case of divorce, certain difficult decisions must be made during an emotionally taxing time.  

Getting ready for divorce -- 3 important things to think about

Major change often leads to one feeling panicky, especially if it means the end of something important in life. In case of divorce, this may be especially true. The realization that one's marriage is coming to an end may be daunting, but one can take comfort in the thought that help is at hand.

Advance planning can avoid commingled funds in divorce

Some couples in New Jersey who file for divorce learn too late that they should have avoided commingling their funds during their marriage. In the event of a divorce, funds that were commingled will be part of the marital estate, and the court may order it divisible. However, if it was addressed in a prenuptial agreement, it might remain the property of the original owner.

Divorce or not? How to know if it is the right thing to do

Older married couples may be quick to tell younger couples that marriage is not all moonlight and roses. The fact of the matter is that every marriage goes through good times and bad times. In some cases it is possible to work through the rougher spots -sometimes with professional help. The main thing is that if a couple tried to work things out but decide on divorce, they would be able to say they really tried.

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.
