Alicia & Richard Stephenson: divorce settlement undecided

It is said that times change, and people change with them. While this may be true, there are some things that are not expected to change, such as prenuptial agreements. Where there has been significant change in the lifestyle or income of either party, New Jersey residents may decide to challenge the original documents in a bid to receive what they may consider a more equitable outcome in divorce.

Careful planning is necessary for divorce finances

After the holidays, it is not uncommon for people to feel extra pressure on their finances. For those who may be thinking about divorce, it may be one of the most worrying aspects of planning for the future. As the cost of living continues to rise, it seems that wages rarely keep pace with it. It is estimated that in excess of 50 percent of jobs in New Jersey pay an hourly rate of less than $20.

New bail rules may help domestic violence victims during divorce

The holidays can be stressful at the best of times, and one may feel a sense of relief as life returns to normal. For New Jersey residents who experience domestic violence, however, there is likely to be little relief from fear or pain. If an abusive spouse is arrested, he or she may be released on bail before the victim has the courage to take the opportunity to file for divorce.

Understanding the highest goals of divorce mediation is key

There is a great saying that every divorce attorney should impart to his or her clients: "Keep your eyes on the prize." This saying is an excellent way to keep everyone focused on their core goals during divorce mediation. Couples can avoid the courtroom and get their marriage behind them as quickly, cost-effectively and peacefully as possible.

Divorce ahead? One should prepare finances now.

New Jersey readers know that divorce is a difficult process, and it can be particularly complex when it comes to financial concerns. The end of a marriage will certainly impact money and assets, and it can be wise to begin to prepare for that impact, even if the divorce papers have not yet been filed. Even a small amount of preparation can eliminate significant complications and unnecessary disputes.
