How will divorce affect your children?

Experts say that may be up to the divorcing parents. While certainly, a divorce will change the family dynamic, and children will have to get used to the "new normal," it turns out that divorce can be made less traumatic on a child if the parents make an effort to avoid petty conflict. New Jersey families facing divorce may want to consider a few key suggestions to reduce negative effects on a child. 

Divorce and child support: is there such a thing as too much?

New Jersey residents tune in with the rest of the nation to watch Good Morning, America, a long-running television program that mixes news and current events with pop culture, fashion trends, recipes and other topics of interest. Through the years, the show has seen several hosts, and former NFL star Michael Strahan has become a fan favorite. Though viewers may feel as if the program's hosts are personal friends, they may be surprised to learn that even celebrities often face the same hardships as "regular people" when it comes to divorce and child support

Consider these steps to ensure a successful divorce mediation

If you're adverse to conflict, then divorce is probably going to be an uncomfortable process for you. Litigation can force you to air all of your disputes with your spouse in open court, thereby leaving your personal life in the hands of a judge who doesn't know you and your family. Fortunately, you may be able to minimize conflict and retain a bigger say in your divorce if you and your spouse are able to work things out through divorce mediation.

Property division during retirement can be tough on women

Gray divorces, which we have discussed previously on this blog, continue to increase in regularity. While many find the freedom provided through a late-life marriage dissolution exhilarating, others find the process financially debilitating. Sadly, this is especially true for women. By taking the following matters into consideration, it is our hope that more older women will sidestep the oftentimes disastrous financial consequences of a gray divorce.

Inheritances and high-asset divorces

Not all divorces are created equal. Some are relatively straightforward with few assets to be divided, no children to fight over, and the parties agreeing on just about every legal issue. Others, though, are knock down, drag-out fights where each party has to be as aggressive as possible to protect his or her best interests. This is often the case in a high-asset divorce where there is a lot at stake and the outcome can have significant ramifications for years to come.
