What brutal divorce tactics should you watch out for?

It may be a sad reality, but divorce often brings out the worst in people. Those who have been emotionally or financially hurt can lash out, making resolution of important marriage dissolution issues seemingly impossible. This can make the divorce process longer and costlier than it needs to be. This isn't to say that legal matters that can't be agreed to shouldn't be aggressively litigated, but our New Jersey readers may want to be aware of some particularly brutal divorce tactics and how to protect themselves from them.

Child custody and the character and fitness evaluation

While the financial ramifications of divorce can be significant, many New Jersey couples find themselves more concerned about something more important: their children. After all, the outcome of a child custody dispute can lay the framework for an individual's relationship with his or her child post-divorce. When a divorce is contentious, this could mean that one's ability to even visit with his or her child may be threatened. This is why it is usually of critical importance that New Jersey residents who are facing child custody disputes consider seeking legal guidance.

Child support modification may be within reach

As the posts on this blog often point out, divorce can have very significant financial ramifications for New Jersey residents. Those who are crafty in their legal dealing regarding marriage dissolution can find themselves exiting marriage on firm financial footing. Those who fail to do so, though, can end up on hard times living a lifestyle that is far below that which they enjoyed during their marriage.

Child custody and the best interests standard

Child custody is one of the most highly contested divorce legal issues. It is not limited to those who are dissolving their marriages, as parents of children born out of wedlock can also face child custody disputes. Oftentimes in these situations each parent believes they know what is best for their child, but their visions don't always align. When this occurs, the matter can be challenging to negotiate and may be left in the hands of a judge.

Many of our readers in New Jersey have probably heard the term "grey divorce," which, generally speaking, usually involves people over the age of 50 going through a divorce, as opposed to younger individuals.

These two concepts are causing major ripples in the family law field, and they may start to become intertwined.

What should you know about feelings and emotions in a divorce?

Many people who are going through a divorce in New Jersey are able to focus on the practical aspects of the case, including ways to address legal issues such as property division, child custody, child support and alimony. This focus can be useful in getting the matters addressed and behind them, but what about the emotions that come along with the end of a marriage? What should our readers know about what to expect when it comes to these oftentimes powerful feelings?

Avoiding impulsive decisions in a divorce case

Being involved in a divorce case can be a highly-charged emotional experience. In any given case, the divorcing couple will need to address potentially contentious issues such as property division, alimony, child custody and child support, among others. When emotions run high, it is important to stay focused on the legal process and the long-term implications of the case on the rest of your life. Avoiding impulsive decisions in a divorce case can pay off long after the case is settled.

High-profile divorce case comes to a conclusion
