Shared parenting time: A positive move for Women's Equality Day

The traditional gender roles of yesteryear have been turned on their heads more than once in recent times. When it comes to bringing up their children, New Jersey parents have many options available to them. The benefits of quality parenting time can enhance an individual's relationship with his or her children and may also allow the parents to find fulfilment as individuals.

Mediation can turn a contentious divorce into an uncontested one

You're getting divorced for a reason. It could have been substance abuse, infidelity or just your ability to relate to your partner degrading over time. Whatever the cause, chances are that you and your spouse don't agree on everything about divorcing. That can mean that feel like you have no option but to go through the courts. With a stay on divorce proceedings in many areas across New Jersey, that could leave you feeling trapped in an unhappy marriage.

How can one avoid missing out on parenting time from a distance?

Long distance relationships can be difficult to maintain for even the most devoted of people. When a parent has to try to maintain parenting time with his or her child from afar, however, it can be even more upsetting. Some New Jersey residents may be familiar with such arrangements, which can arise for a number of reasons.

Avoid child custody stress by sharing information

Getting divorced may ease the pressure of spousal responsibilities, but it usually increases parental pressures if there are children involved. This mainly -- but not only -- applies when parents share child custody, because both parents have to do right by the other one to avoid contention. After the divorce, most New Jersey parents want to spare their children further trauma by maintaining an amicable relationship with each other. To achieve this, it helps to address even seemingly insignificant issues in the parenting plan and make sure it is included in the custody order.

August is Child Support Awareness Month

The majority of parents want to do right by their children. While there are cases where a noncustodial parent may be unable, or simply refuses, to make child support payments, it is rarely the case that they will be required to make no payments at all. As some New Jersey residents may already know, August is Child Support Awareness Month.

Should a man pay child support for a child that is not his?

From the first moment children draw breath, their parents form strong bonds with them. Many New Jersey residents will understand a parent's desire to do the best for his or her child. Seeking -- or paying -- child support, is one way of making provisions for them. What happens if a man is expected to make payments for a child that is not his?

Does the uncertain future of health care leave divorce in limbo?

Life is rarely as simple as black and white; there are innumerable shades of gray. Once a New Jersey resident has made up his or her mind to divorce, anything that may hamper one's decision can be frustrating. One area that is causing uncertainty for some people is the lack of information over what might replace the Affordable Care Act.

Understanding the difference between mediation and arbitration

Most people living in Passaic County and Essex County in New Jersey know that there is currently a stay in place for all divorce proceedings. What does that mean, exactly? For couples who know their marriage is over, this stay means that traditional, court-based divorces are not an option.

Honored as a "Best of New Jersey Among our Most Distinguished Americans of Italian Descent" and conferred the "Stivale D'Italia Award of Excellence" by the Italian Tribune for her "honesty, integrity and dedication to fair and ethical business practices" and her "outstanding reputation as a Woman Whose Word is Her Bond".
