Invalidating a prenuptial agreement in a New Jersey divorce

In recent years, prenuptial agreements have become more common. New Jersey couples are realizing that these agreements are not just for the wealthy or famous and are executing them in contemplation of the possibility of divorce at some point in the future. However, if the parties' marriages do end, some people attempt to have these agreements invalidated.

How Does Mediation Work?

The mediation process is often used to settle divorce and other family-related cases in New Jersey. Unlike litigation, it is non-contentious and neither party is considered the "right" one. Mediation works particularly well when both parties are able to be civil with each other, but it can also work if one party feels especially aggrieved or emotional.

Custody and child support issues are intertwined

Providing for the emotional, physical and financial well-being of children can be enough of a challenge for New Jersey parents who are married. When that relationship ends, that does not mean that the parents are not still obligated to provide for their children together. Children need both of their parents in order to maintain the stability and security they enjoyed during the marriage, which is why custody and child support issues are intertwined.

Money concerns are part of every New Jersey divorce

Even for New Jersey couples who have children, money is an important concern when marriages end. Both parties want to be able to support themselves and their children after divorce. Therefore, it will be necessary to be sure that each former spouse is in the best financial position possible when a divorce is finalized.

Devising a divorce settlement with credit reports in mind

When New Jersey residents end their marriages, their thoughts often turn to dividing up the marital estate. However, the couple's debts will also need to be dealt with in the divorce settlement. Doing so could get complex and contentious if the majority of the financial obligations are joint.
