Divorce involving a child presents unique challenges

Breaking up with a spouse is never an easy process in New Jersey. This is particularly the case when the two people getting divorced have a young child who is stuck in the middle. Fortunately, some tips might make the process of getting a divorce as positive of an experience as possible for both the parents and the child.

Helpful advice to make divorce less stressful

It goes without saying that no couple gets married with the intent of someday ending the marriage. However, this is exactly what happens to nearly half of all marriages in New Jersey and across the United States. Divorce is not only very complicated, but it can also be one of the most stressful things a person can experience in life. Here are a few tips that can make divorce less stressful.

Who is responsible for credit card debt in a divorce?

When a couple parts ways, not only are their assets on the table, but so are their debts. Frankly, creditors don't care who pays the debt as long as it gets paid. Couples thinking about divorce need to understand who is responsible for credit card debt when a marriage is over. New Jersey is an equitable distribution state, which dictates issues around the division of debt in a divorce situation and means a divorce court will divide marital assets and debts in a fair manner between spouses, although not necessarily equally.

Safeguarding your assets in the divorce process in New Jersey

Being financially stable is a goal to which everyone aspires. So, those who find themselves in a divorce situation, should think about protecting their assets. New Jersey is an equitable distribution state and as such when couples  divorce, marital property is not automatically split 50-50, but in a manner that is fair, though not necessarily equal. When divorce is imminent, each person needs to think about how to protect his and her finances.
