Our readers in New Jersey are probably aware of one of the most high-profile divorce cases in the Northeast, and perhaps the country: the divorce of Donald Trump, Jr. and his wife.

Many divorce cases in New Jersey involve contentious disputes about child support, child custody and property division. However, the one issue that can really cause debilitating strife in the legal proceedings is a request for alimony. After all, most divorcing spouses view the end of their marriage as the end of any type of relationship between the two ex-spouses - many do not treasure the idea of owing a financial obligation to an ex-spouse after the marriage is over.
Going through a divorce can make you feel exceptionally lonely, and if you are likely many people in your shoes, you may be relying on social media more than ever during this difficult time.

When New Jersey residents get stressed out during the property division part of their divorce cases, it is understandable.

To make things even more complicated, there are a wide variety of factors that can come into play during the property division process - unless the couple can reach an out-of-court agreement.
