Mediation can help you protect your retirement funds in divorce

Going through a divorce can often have a negative impact on your financial situation. There are many reasons for this, including the fact that spouses tended to drag out their divorces and fight over their assets. The result of that behavior is often a diminished marital estate, especially if you are close to retirement age.

Mediation may help keep divorce costs down

When a New Jersey married couple decides to divorce, it activates a series of decisions and legal actions when one of the spouses files papers in court. If the couple has children, a co-parenting plan will be needed. Divorce does not always have to include litigation; in fact, many people nowadays are achieving settlements through mediation.

Are you planning to file divorce papers in New Jersey?

If you have decided to end your marriage in a New Jersey court, you are likely concerned with numerous issues. Divorce is typically no walk in a park and if children are involved, things may get quite complicated. That does not necessarily mean that every case sparks a knock-down, drag-out courtroom battle, however. There are several support options that can keep stress to a minimum.

Most parents want what is best for their children and are willing to work hard to provide emotional, physical and financial support to fulfill those needs. As many New Jersey parents can attest, however, it is not always easy to keep up with child support payments after divorce. The state understands this, though, which is why it allows a paying parent to request a stay or a decrease in payments if a problem arises.

These infidelity issues often lead to divorce

Not every New Jersey marriage lasts a lifetime. Marriages end in divorce for any number of reasons. However, in many relationships, infidelity is a deal breaker. In fact, it is often the deciding factor that prompts spouses to petition the court for divorce rather than try to stick it out and resolve their marital problems.

Any New Jersey parent who is currently facing co-parenting problems will want to carefully research state laws before taking any type of action in court. Child custody laws vary by state and can bear significant impact on a parent's decisions as far as how to address a particular legal matter. There is also a difference between legal custody of a child and physical custody; a concerned parent will want to seek clarification for better understanding in order to know where he or she might stand in the eyes of the court in a given situation.
