Divorce may be contagious among friends

Divorce has become increasingly common for married couples in New Jersey and in other states compared to decades ago. Researchers who analyzed divorce statistics have reported that divorce is more common for individuals with close friends or family members who recently filed for divorce.

Establishing and enforcing child support orders

It can be particularly important for single, separated or divorced parents in New Jersey to understand the child support system. When parents first enter the system and begin dealing with child support, they may find it confusing or even overwhelming. Each August marks Child Support Awareness Month, an initiative designed to draw attention to the financial support provided by noncustodial parents.

The different types of child support cases

When New Jersey parents start dealing with the child support system for the first time, some of the terminology used can be confusing and difficult to understand. It may also not be clear why some families handle child support privately while others are involved with a state system that manages the payment process. There are actually four different kinds of child support cases that deal with payment arrangements.

Disentangling assets during a divorce over 50

An increasing number of couples in New Jersey are choosing to divorce later in life. Statistics show that while the divorce rate has remained flat or even declined for most American demographics, people older than 50 are an exception. The divorce rate has gone up two times over for this group in the past 20 years, according to the Pew Research Center. There can be major differences when people decide to divorce at an older age. Issues like child custody and support are unlikely to be a concern. However, financial issues and the division of retirement funds are more likely to be serious issues in a "gray divorce."

Introducing new partners to children after a divorce

New Jersey parents may find it difficult to co-parent their children with their ex-spouse following a divorce, especially if that divorce was not amicable. However, it is essential for parents to continue to work together for the sake of their children, especially as they begin to move on.
