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.

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.

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.
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.
