How to handle matters involving business and divorce

There is a saying that one should never work with children or animals. For some New Jersey residents, this may also come to be true of former or soon-to-be ex-spouses. Business relationships may flourish while a marriage does; however, this rarely - if ever - continues to be the case when divorce happens.

The Lindemuth divorce is all about lawyers, guns and money

Intent to deceive does indeed spin a tangled web -- one that may be difficult to maintain under inspection. Divorce can be complicated enough, however; add bankruptcy issues, and it can become a minefield that is precarious to navigate. Most New Jersey residents will lead relatively simple and uneventful lives compared to some wealthy business magnates.

Who will have the last laugh when the Macklowes divorce?

It is true that, in most instances, the ability to laugh will get one through most misfortunes in life. However, not everyone shares the same sense of humor. Many New Jersey residents will know at least one person whose jokes often fall flat, at least as far as they are concerned. Divorce is no joking matter, and in one recent divorce case a woman did not see the funny side of the actions of her wealthy husband.

Slicing up a business during divorce is not as easy as pie

In order to run a successful business, one must employ a number of devices and strategies. Planning ahead and making contingency plans is an important part of that. For New Jersey residents who own businesses with their spouses, the idea of divorce may never have entered their minds, potentially throwing a major obstacle into an already complicated situation.

The divorce tables have turned on Phaedra Parks

Life is often unpredictable. Just when one thinks that things are running smoothly, a curve ball can knock things completely off course, something with which many New Jersey residents will be familiar. If someone believes his or her divorce to be finalized, then one may be able to imagine how disconcerting it would be to discover that it is not.

Divorce settlement: an $11.4 million question

There are two sides to every story, and somewhere in the middle lies the truth. Unfortunately for New Jersey residents who are caught up in a divorce, that elusive middle ground may be quite a complex area. For the purposes of equitable distribution, trying to figure out where individual property ends and marital property begins can mean a vast difference in the outcome of one's settlement.

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.

Divorce issues: Business interests, retirement and alimony

Whether New Jersey couples would admit it, money is a central issue and concern when ending a marriage. Each party is attempting to secure a financial future that is at least comfortable. This might account for the fact that businesses and/or business interests, retirement and alimony are the three top monetary issues dealt with during the property division portion of a divorce.

Osbourne split brings up unique divorce matters

The reported divorce of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne makes for a celebrity story, sure. However, the supposed celebrity split is more than a simple pop culture story. The possible end of their marriage presents various unique points of discussion within the realm of family law.
