Things to think about prior to filing for divorce

Many New Jersey residents can recall reading or hearing about celebrity marriages that ended but where the spouses later decided to remarry. It is important to understand that this is not only an issue that affects celebrities; regular people often remarry a spouse whom they previously divorced. When considering divorce, it is important to carefully consider all aspects of that important decision.

Parental alienation and Alex Jones' child custody dispute

Many New Jersey residents have heard the term "parental alienation," but are uncertain of exactly what it means. Fewer are familiar with the name Alex Jones, and the conspiracy theory website InfoWars that he created and maintains. Jones has made headlines after losing a child custody dispute, and parental alienation may be a primary factor that led to the decision to place his three children back into the care of their mother.

Can Donald Trump be blamed for causing couples to divorce?

It is impossible to turn on any new channel and not be bombarded with commentary on the early days of the Trump administration. Whether one loves or hates the new president, he has certainly made politics interesting. For some New Jersey couples, a failure to agree on whether Trump should be lauded or lambasted could lead to contention. In fact, researchers believe that serious political disagreements could lead some couples to seek a divorce.

Child custody dispute centered on YouTube videos

Love it or hate it, YouTube has become a deeply ingrained part of American pop culture. In fact, some people in New Jersey and elsewhere are making a very good living by posting content on the site. It is important to understand that sharing video footage of one's personal life with the world can have a number of unintended consequences, as one couple discovered when they were faced with a child custody dispute over footage involving their children.

Finances require attention when going through divorce

Getting a divorce in New Jersey is an overwhelming enough process without having to worry about how it may affect one's credit. The reality is that the divorce process can negatively impact a person's credit score. This can make it challenging to get a line of credit, secure an apartment rental or qualify for a new mortgage.

Startups founders have special high asset divorce needs

When an individual is able to create a successful startup, he or she can become enormously wealthy in a very short period of time.

For those in New Jersey who have done well in the tech industry and are considering divorce, it is important to understand the unique challenges that might arise in a high asset divorce.

Separation or divorce: Tips for older spouses

When New Jersey couples encounter marital difficulties, one option is to enter into a marital separation. Taking some time off can help spouses refocus on their individual priorities and shared goals, and many couples end up reconnecting and going on to have long and happy marriages. For those who do not end up going the distance, however, a separation can complicate the eventual divorce proceedings.

Divorce petition must be answered early on

Following the filing of a marital dissolution petition with the court in New Jersey, the spouse seeking the divorce -- who is known as the petitioner -- ensures that this petition is legally delivered, or served, on the other party. Then, the spouse who is being served has to respond to this divorce petition during a certain time period. This other spouse is legally known as the respondent.
