The holiday season is upon us, and for most people this can be a great time of year to visit with friends and family. However, it can also be a time of stress as well. This is particularly true for those New Jersey residents who are going through a divorce or for those who are going through their first holiday season post-divorce. So, how can you deal with the emotions of a divorce during the holiday season?
Once you know you are getting divorced, there are a few practices you may want to start pulling back on. Living in a digital age makes it easy for people to put life on display for prying eyes. One of the worst things you can do before, during and even after divorce is putting things in writing you may regret.
When New Jersey residents are part of a divorce case, they probably expect to encounter quite a few bumps in the road during the process. After all, in many cases, the situation already starts out with two people who are obviously not overly fond of one another, although there are admittedly some cases in which the couples can work together enough to reach an out-of-court settlement. However, there will be those cases in which the couple fights tooth-and-nail over every detail, especially alimony. When it comes to contentious arguments about alimony in a divorce, be sure you know what you are getting into.
Most people have more assets than they realize. This is especially true for married couples. Throughout the course of a marriage, couples will accumulate real estate, vehicles, retirement accounts and valuable personal property, just to name a few examples. When a marriage turns toward a divorce, couples in New Jersey must consider all of their assets in the property division process of the case.
Divorcing couples in New Jersey often have a wide variety of questions about how the dissolution process will work. Each divorce case is different, but many will involve common issues: child custody and support, alimony and property division. For some couples in a high asset divorce, property division and alimony might be the most important issues of all. But, just because a divorce involves a significant amount of assets, does that mean that the sides should push for a quick resolution of the case to save money?
