Olympic figure skater files for divorce over abusive marriage

Divorce has long been a talking point in our country’s legal circles. Divorce is an issue for many people of all ages and backgrounds. There has been a lot of news in the recent years about same-sex marriage. Last year, it was passed in New Jersey. Of course, however, with same-sex marriage comes same-sex divorce, adding an entirely new demographic of couples who may need legal counsel in divorce proceedings.

Prenuptial agreement offers protection in high-asset divorce

It can be easy to assume that wealthy people have it easier than others. Some may even believe that rich people are above the law, or that they can receive special treatment based on the size of their bank account. Of course, this is not the case: Nobody is above the law in New Jersey. And when it comes to divorce, being wealthy could potentially turn out to be more than it’s worth.

Younger couples who cohabitate more likely to divorce study finds

When people commit to spending their lives together, they also agree to share their possessions and living space. It is not always easy to untangle the many parts of a life that intertwine over the course of a marriage, and divorce naturally creates some strong emotions in people. This is especially true when child custody and distribution of property is involved, and is no different for residents of New Jersey. However, arranging a suitable divorce is still possible when the couple agrees to work together, no matter how long they have been together.

Divorced parents in New Jersey should not overlook college costs

When a marriage or relationship ends, both sides must make adjustments to their lifestyle and personal situations. One of the most important parts of this process is taking into account child support. In New Jersey, as in all states, these payments can factor in health care coverage and medical expenses, as well as everyday expenses like school supplies. However, one factor that is commonly overlooked is the children's opportunities for a college education.
