Retirement planning after a divorce

New Jersey couples planning to start the divorce process may be worried about how the separation will affect their retirement planning. As most spouses understand, divorce can have immediate emotional and financial effects. However, many divorcees neglect to consider their retirement readiness.

Freelance work and child support obligations

For New Jersey parents with child support obligations, payroll deductions and withholdings are some of the most common means by which their monthly payments are collected. Around 70 percent of all child support payments are made through direct payroll collections. Even when a parent attempts to evade their child support responsibilities, employers are required to report their newly hired workers to a child support database that is shared between states. Workers at a new job can face enforcement actions and even the garnishment of their paycheck if they fail to pay their court-ordered child support.

Planning for the future while finalizing a divorce

The divorce process is different for every separating couple in New Jersey. It can involve an array of financial, practical and emotional complications. Therefore, when spouses go through a divorce, they should be careful to avoid making errors that could be financially damaging in the long term.

Child support and unemployed parents

Non-custodial parents who unexpectedly lose their jobs may want more information about the effects of unemployment on an active child support order. In New Jersey and other states, child support orders are in place to help ensure that the children's needs are met. Parents will generally find that a child support order remains in effect even when the party who is responsible for making the payments is not working. When they explore the options that are available to them, unemployed parents may find that this potentially stressful situation can be successfully navigated.
