Questions of pet custody may be important in divorce

Married pet owners in New Jersey may want to consider what will happen to their pets if they get divorced.

If such an agreement was not put in place and a divorce is imminent, three big mistakes can negatively affect the outcome of the divorce, particularly for high-asset divorcees, according to a recent piece on the subject.

Individuals in New Jersey who are considering filing for divorce may have questions about asset division and might benefit from a discussion in a recent article.

The financial advisor focused on certain key issues that might be overlooked in some cases, including certain tax issues.
