Why some couples may want to consider a prenup

Some people in New Jersey may want to consider a prenuptial agreement before getting married. A prenup describes how finances will be handled in case of divorce. It may specify that one spouse will not request alimony, and it can outline what property will remain separate even if this is different from how such property is normally handled during a divorce.

Preventing financial disagreements with proper planning

Perhaps one of the most common subjects of disagreements for many couples in New Jersey is how to utilize and manage finances. In many instances, ongoing disagreements over how things should be done may lead to a divorce. If people have experienced divorce from their spouse with financial discrepancies being the underlying cause, they may be looking for advice on how to avoid those types of tensions in future relationships. 

Is nesting a good post-divorce living arrangement?

There are numerous issues you and your spouse need to discuss during the divorce process in New Jersey, including what to do with your house and where your children will live. These decisions are often complex, requiring you to consider your immediate and long-term finances as well as what is best for your children. You may think that the only solution is to have one of you stay in the house while the other one moves out. However, a different living arrangement called nesting may provide unique benefits for you, your ex-spouse and your children.

Gaming disorder may contribute to divorce

It is often challenging to identify all the actions, decisions and feelings that contribute to the end of a marriage. While infidelity and financial arguments are frequent causes, these are not the only things that may contribute to a divorce. Addiction to video games, also known as gaming disorder, may be a cause of divorce. However, it is also possible to treat gaming disorders. Before a couple files for divorce in New Jersey, it may be helpful to determine if gaming addiction is a factor.

Discernment counseling may offer unique benefits

One of the most common things individuals may hear when they start considering a divorce is a plea to try marriage counseling first. This request may come from a spouse who wishes to stay married or a well-meaning friend or family member. With all the emotions and stress that may occur near the potential end of a marriage, it may be difficult for a person or a couple to determine whether they should try counseling. A relatively new option, discernment counseling, may help couples determine whether it is best to try to fix the marriage or pursue a divorce.

Are you headed for divorce?

Couples in New Jersey may be able to predict if divorce is potentially in the future if they pay attention to certain signs. Spouses who can identify warning signs and make the necessary changes have a much better chance of making things work than couples who ignore what is going on.

Is my spouse having an online affair?

Marital infidelity is hardly a new occurrence. However, many people conduct affairs completely online now, via social media sites or by chatting with potential paramours on websites. If you suspect your partner is having an online affair, Live About recommends looking for the following signs. 

Divorce and your outlook on life

When some people feel as if they are stuck in a toxic marriage, they may lose the motivation to succeed in life and pursue new opportunities. Some may feel hopeless, while others may find the courage to file for a divorce and move on. Ending such a marriage can change one’s outlook on life in many ways, whether they feel like they have a fresh start in life, or their emotional state improves because they are no longer dealing with problems that constantly brought them down during their marriage.

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.
