Our firm has decades of experience handling alimony disputes

As we recently discussed on the blog, there are many types of alimony that can be awarded during the course of divorce. Depending on your circumstances, you may choose to aggressively seek a particular type of alimony that best meets your financial needs. On the other hand, you may be concerned about the financial obligation thrust upon you in the event that your soon-to-be ex-spouse is awarded alimony. Both positions are understandable. In many instances couples are able to negotiate a resolution that is fair to both parties, but sometimes they aren't. Regardless of how the matter ends up resolving, it is important that you consider having a strong legal ally on your side to help you advocate for your best interests.

Some common contributors to divorce

Although some reports indicate that the divorce rate is declining, it still feels like divorce is more prevalent than ever. In fact, statistics show that nearly half of all marriages end in divorce. The average length of a marriage prior to divorce is seven years, which has held steady over the last several decades. Those who choose to dissolve their marriages have to confront challenging legal issues, including property division, child custody, and alimony. Before getting to that point, though, it may be helpful to understand why divorce occurs in the first place, as this can give a divorcing individual perspective and insight into the process and how best to approach.

Tips to deal with the emotional aspects of divorce

Divorce can take a toll on just about every aspect of your life. Financially, of course, one's marriage dissolution will probably leave them with less income and fewer assets with which to build a new life. Yet, most New Jersey residents who seek out marriage dissolution do so because their happiness is more important than money. But for others, the emotional toll caused by divorce is significant. It is common for individuals to feel a variety of emotions throughout the process, including anger, sadness, confusion, and frustration.
