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.

Divorce is a full-time occupation

There are many things that can put strain on a marriage. Many New Jersey residents will be unsurprised that financial troubles and health problems can cause divorce. Certain professions can also cause problems within a marriage due to a number of different reasons.

Property distribution includes protecting credit rating

Along with child custody issues, divorcing couples in New Jersey probably dispute the division of their assets more passionately than most other factors. However, an important element in reaching an equitable property distribution is balancing the debt the couples share. Without careful attention to one's liabilities, one spouse may be at risk of damaging his or her credit score, which may hinder the chances of moving forward independently.

How a bad divorce can affect a child, even into adulthood

The state of a person's health is dependent on many things. There may not be much that one can do to stave off an illness that is genetic without the intervention of medicine, and there are certain illnesses that a New Jersey resident may contract at any time in life that can have long term effects. A recent university study has shown that children whose parents go through a bad divorce may find, as a consequence, that their immune systems become more vulnerable, even into adulthood.

Rewriting one's future after divorce

When one gets married, it is natural to have a vision in mind of how the future will look. Divorce is not something any New Jersey resident considers until it actually happens, and when it does, it often comes as something of a shock. The emotional nature of a relationship breakdown can cloud one's thinking, making it easy to want to simply get things over with as quickly as possible at a time when one needs to focus one's mind on what happens next.

Divorce: Be sure before you close that door

Life is full of decisions, some more important than others. For many New Jersey residents, marriage changes their lives for the better and remains that way until death parts them. Other people are not so lucky, and may instead notice a number of things over time that might point to the need to consider whether securing a divorce is the best way forward.

Separation or divorce: Time can harm or heal for older couples

As people get older they often reassess their lives. When one's children have grown up and left home to begin families of their own, it can seem that there's a lot more freedom than may have been the case for the prior 20 years or more. The realization that one no longer feels that same toward his or her spouse can come as a shock to a New Jersey resident, especially if the only option appears to be divorce.

Divorce is one of the main financial wake-up calls for women

Marriage is a partnership, and the division of labor often falls into a pattern based on how a couple live. Traditionally, men were seen as the ones who take care of the finances while women are charged with the care of the home and family. Many New Jersey women may feel that they have a good sense of financial responsibility, and may even handle many of the household finances. However, when they find themselves facing divorce, the sense of security can fall away rapidly.

Divorce may not be fair, but property division can be

Life is full of questions. The older one gets, the more questions seem to arise. However prepared a New Jersey resident may think he or she is, being presented with divorce papers can still feel like a bolt from the blue. One of the questions that might cross a person's mind is what happens when it comes to property division in an equitable distribution state.

A stitch in time will save much more during divorce

It is regularly suggested that half the marriages in this country end prematurely. According to a recent article in Time magazine, over the 35-year period between 1980 and 2015, the divorce rate actually decreased by 25 percent. While this gives a positive indication of the state of marriage today, the simple fact is that many New Jersey residents will decide to divorce this year.

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".
