How property distribution impacts New Jersey parents in divorce

Many New Jersey households rely on dual incomes. Many others consist of families where only one parent goes outside the home to work. When married couples that include a stay-at-home parent decide to divorce, the court takes certain factors into consideration when ruling on property distribution issues. This is often a major concern for spouses who have held paid jobs for many years.

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.

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.  

Delaying divorce can lead to serious legal complications

Culinary icon Anthony Bourdain's recent tragic death shocked the world and left his friends and family members grief-stricken. As a celebrity, details of his personal life have often made headline news, such as the fact that he and his second wife had started divorce proceedings some years ago that were never finalized. The situation is evidence of the importance of acting in a timely manner when one wishes to legally end a marriage. New Jersey residents currently worrying about complications that may arise when divorce proceedings are delayed may want to follow this case.  

Dr. Greg Lunceford raises property distribution issues in divorce

Most New Jersey residents would agree that having one's divorce plastered across news headlines would increase the stress of the situation. However, some people, including those who star on the reality TV series, "Married to Medicine," seem to be used to having their private lives made public, at least to some extent. Two of the show's stars, Doctor Greg Lunceford and his wife, Quad, are battling it out in court regarding property distribution issues and other divorce-related matters.  

Ideas for New Jersey spouses hoping for low-stress divorce

In Hollywood movies, marital break-ups are often portrayed as long, volatile battles involving contentious courtroom fights. In real life, however, many New Jersey spouses and others are able to navigate the family justice system with little to no upset, although there may be minor challenges here or there. Every situation is unique, so achieving a low-stress divorce often depends on what type of support is available to a couple.  

Complications may arise in a second, or subsequent, divorce

There's a way of predicting which marriages will last a lifetime and which will end prematurely. In New jersey or another state, a spouse filing for divorce more than once may face more challenges than someone entering the process for the first time. Actress Geena Davis may agree as her fourth husband (of 17 years) recently took steps to end their marriage. 

Signs divorce is about to happen

In New Jersey and across the country, no two marriages are exactly the same. It's often difficult to say for sure what makes one marriage last a lifetime while another does not survive. But some people say it is possible to tell if a spouse is thinking about filing for divorce. 

Shifting roles may increase likelihood of divorce

Most couples in New Jersey and elsewhere assume their marriages will last a lifetime. Some analysts say certain markers signify a greater chance of divorce. If a particular couple begins their married life in a traditional setting, then shifts roles at some point, the bond they once shared may take a big hit.  

Former Mayor Giuliani facing divorce issues, again

No two marriages are exactly the same; therefore, neither are any two divorces. Navigating the divorce process even once can be quite challenging, as many New Jersey residents can attest. For people like former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, multiple divorces can raise some complicated issues, which is why it is always best to have experienced legal counsel on hand to help address any potential problems.
