Letting your kids know about your divorce

family talking.jpgWhen it comes to divorce, communication is critical not just between spouses, but between parents and their children. What parents say to their kids leading up to, during, and after a divorce matters. One conversation that can be particularly impactful for all the parties involved is the announcement of the divorce.

Should I have a mediation or risk taking my divorce to trial?

mediation.jpgIf you are a high-asset couple facing divorce, you have probably received a lot of advice from well-meaning people. Many people who have been through a divorce trial will advise others to settle through mediation. After all, compromising on half of everything is better than risking everything. Whether your divorce will finalize in New Jersey or a Pennsylvania county, the courts will expect parties to do everything possible to stay out of litigation. Let's review some circumstances when mediation may not be a better solution than litigation:

Cohabitation and Terminating Alimony in New Jersey

When an alimony obligation exists between ex-spouses in New Jersey, both the paying and receiving ex-spouses can wonder how a dating relationship of the receiving ex-spouse with a significant other can impact the paying ex-spouse's obligation to pay alimony. Typically, the dating relationship of the receiving ex-Tennessee-Alimony-Law2.jpgspouse is only going to alter the obligation of the paying ex-spouse if a situation called "cohabitation" exists. Broadly, cohabitation is defined as "a mutually supportive, intimate personal relationship in which a couple has undertaken duties and privileges that are commonly associated with marriage."

Where Can I Get a Divorce?

What's Mine Is Yours: When Pre-Marital Real Estate Becomes Marital Property

martial home.jpgWith the growing trends towards lengthy engagements and living together before marriage, more and more couples are assuming "marriage-like" relationships before officially tying the knot. While this may work well at the time, if the parties do marry and subsequently divorce, the debate over when "my property" became "our property" can be tricky, particularly when it comes to the marital home. If a husband or wife bought a property prior to the marriage, that individual may think he or she is indisputably entitled to 100% of that property. However, in New Jersey, that is not necessarily the case, even if the party bought the house before the marriage or purchased it solely with his or her own money.
