What to look out for when divorcing an addicted spouse

Marriage can be difficult given the everyday demands of two busy people (i.e. work, children, business maintenance, elder care), but when drug or alcohol addiction complicates the relationship, it is incredibly difficult to keep a marriage together.

How grandparents can protect visitation rights

The old adage "it takes a village to raise a child" was not born in a vacuum. Grandparents, just like aunts, uncles and godparents, can play a vital role in a child's life. However, some grandparents may not be able to spend as much time as they like with their grandchildren.

Digital spying becoming common in divorce

Due to the affordability and ubiquity of GPS tracking devices and spyware, checking in on a spouse's whereabouts and activities is alarmingly frequent in divorce. This can involve things like checking email and monitoring social media posts, of course, but there is much more to it than that.

How can I properly utilize my child support payments?

The question posed in our title may seem like a silly one, but the fact of the matter is that many parents that receive child support incorrectly think that there are only certain ways that they can use child support. To the contrary, child support is actually a very flexible form of compensation that has a lot of utility. Let's examine how this critical part of so many divorces -- and post-divorce lives -- can be used.

How and why a prenup can be invalidated

There are plenty of practical reasons to have a prenuptial agreement, and the contract can go a long way towards providing a soon-to-be-married couple with legal security about their property, assets, and other valuables in case of a divorce or other unforeseen circumstance. However, many people assume that a prenuptial agreement -- for all the good they can do -- are impregnable contracts that can't be legally challenged.

Adopting abroad? Don't forget to re-adopt at home.

Adoption can be a lengthy, stressful and expensive process. It's a joyful occasion when, after months of hoping and worrying, you can finally hold your new baby in your arms. However, if you adopted in another country, there is an important final step you should consider taking once you've brought your child back to the United States. The process is known as "international re-adoption", which is a validation of your international adoption by the U.S. government.

Parent's College Contribution

As experienced New Jersey custody and support attorneys, we frequently have clients come to our firm on the difficult issue of college contributions. In New Jersey, unlike many states, not only can the Court compel divorced or separated parents to continue contributing to their children's support after the children are 18 years old, the Court can also compel the parents to contribute to the (often substantial) cost of college, should a child have the capability to attend. Not infrequently, a parent will inform us that he or she has little to no relationship with their child, and ask if they will still have to contribute to college.& ;

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.
