Protect your rights and finances before moving in with a partner

Some couples in New Jersey and elsewhere choose to move in together rather than to commit to a marriage. Authorities suggest careful consideration along with honest discussions before rushing into cohabitation. Some say money is the most cited cause for divorce, and why would it be any different for couples living together?

Knowledge of child custody options can bring peace of mind

Most parents hate to see their children suffer or get hurt. When it comes to divorce, it is often very difficult to protect the children from hurt, but knowledge of the different child custody options available to New Jersey parents may be beneficial. If one knows the available choices, the process may be less stressful for all.

Divorce due to irreconcilable differences -- what does it mean?

Help in getting to know your way around divorce is at hand

There is little doubt that ending a marriage evokes mixed emotions for those involved. You may hear from many other New Jersey divorcees that while the process was going on they often experienced many conflicting emotions -- being frightened while feeling fulfilled, finding it easy but also hard at the same time. While you may be convinced that getting a divorce is what is best for you, you may still find that going through the process is challenging – both emotionally and financially.

Do I have to go to trial as part of my divorce?

Filing a lawsuit is a necessary part of dissolving a marriage. However, nowadays, you and your spouse do not have to go down the litigation path to address the terms of your divorce when dealing with issues such as property division and child custody. Instead, you can rely on a divorce mediator in New Jersey to help you to resolve your disputes.

Should I stay, or should I go?

If the marriage was unhappy, the divorce was likely hostile. Perhaps the custody battle was fierce and dirty, and that has left you bitter. As difficult as it was to get along with your spouse before the divorce, now parenting has the added challenge of two separate households, complicated schedules and divided holidays.
