Court to rule on request for child support modification

Most New Jersey parents who have signed custody, visitation or support agreements understand that both parents must comply with a settlement agreement that is then approved in court and included in a judgment of divorce. Otherwise, they risk being held in contempt. Some people wind up in jail for failure to pay child support.

2019 tax changes will impact divorce in New Jersey and beyond

Many people in New Jersey will get divorced before the year ends. In the past, it was not uncommon for people to claim alimony payments as deductions on their federal tax returns. Anyone who had planned on doing so in a divorce that will settle after 2018 will want to update their information regarding recent tax law changes.

Judge issues child custody ruling in case of missing mother

New Jersey judges often preside over family law situations involving parents who have children together but are not married. Some cases are more complicated than others, as made evident by an ongoing situation in another state. The judge in this particular case recently handed down a child custody ruling that named the father of the children in question a danger to their safety.  

Worried about child custody problems in divorce?

Keeping your children's best interests in mind is no doubt one of your highest priorities as you prepare to negotiate a settlement for divorce in a New Jersey court. The judge presiding over your case will likely take numerous factors into consideration when ruling on child custody, support and visitation issues. If you and your former spouse are like-minded regarding such matters, chances are things will run smoothly; if not, you may have to aggressively protect your right as a new plan for parenting time and other related matters is developed.

When divorce is contested because of financial issues

Financial problems can arise at any time in life, especially when two New Jersey spouses decide to end their marriage in court. Divorce is never easy, and if spouses do not agree about financial issues, things can get messy. This is reportedly what caused a snag in divorce proceedings for Donald Trump, Jr., age 40, and his estranged wife, Vanessa Trump, also age 40.
