Don't overlook the most important assets - many people do

It is easy to overlook complicated assets that you might never think about on a daily basis. If you are seeking a divorce then your spouse might be happy keeping it that way too. Many people do not realize all of their spouse's accounts that are a part of joint marital assets. Below are some common items that often get overlooked when dividing assets:

Your spouse may be hiding money from you

Many couples in New Jersey plan to establish a little nest egg or rainy day fund with their disposable income. Unfortunately, not many are able to come up with enough disposable income to make much of a fund. Nevertheless, when marriages become troubled, it is surprising how many people are able to find assets to stash away from their spouse's grasp.

Your Online Life Could Become Part Of Your Divorce Proceedings

If you’re in the midst of a divorce, you may not know that your online life could be under examination by your spouse’s attorney. This includes your posts on Facebook, tweets on Twitter, and your texts and emails. Additionally, all these types of electronic communication may have already been investigated if a divorce had been in the works for some time.

The past won't help in a divorce -- look to the future instead

When a marriage ends, emotions are often running high since the parties tend to focus on the past. If New Jersey residents are not careful, those emotions could end up controlling how the divorce proceedings go. The focus of any divorce should be structuring a future that allows for some financial security.

The importance of protecting no-fault divorce

Over the past few years, a significant number of lawmakers have tried to end the practice of no-fault divorce in various states. This type of divorce means that neither party is being blamed for the breakdown of the marriage (for reasons such as adultery or abuse). The most typical reason used for a no-fault divorce is “irreconcilable differences.”

Taking unfriending to the next level with divorce notification

So many aspects of life have changed over the past several decades that it is no surprise that the way people communicate has also changed in favor of texting and messaging in place of face to face conversations and old-fashioned letter writing. Another possible change on the horizon is the way couples inform one another that divorce papers have been filed. New Jersey residents may be interested to learn that Facebook may soon play a role in this process.
