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.

Mediation gives you more control over asset division and custody

Getting divorced is never an easy prospect. In New Jersey right now, it's nearly impossible. Initially, only Essex and Passaic Counties had stays on divorces. Now, with the escalation of budget issues and the closure of all state courts, divorces are indefinitely on hold throughout New Jersey.

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.
