Planning for a child's college expenses after divorce

As part of a divorce settlement, some parents in New Jersey might be required to contribute toward their children's college expenses. However, even when this is the case, a judge will take a number of factors into account, including a parent's financial situation. This means that in most cases, the divorce agreement cannot compel a parent to pay for an expensive private college education.

Divorce may be more likely if the wife gets sick

When people marry in New Jersey, they often pledge to stay together "in sickness and in health." In practice, however, severe and chronic illness can have serious, negative effects on a marriage. According to multiple studies, those impacts are distinctly gendered. Women who become seriously ill are more likely to face divorce while married men who suffer from illness do not show the same increased likelihood of separation.

The ins and outs of very high-asset divorces

Not many people in New Jersey, or the rest of the United States for that matter, have the kind of assets that the founder of Amazon has. However, it is interesting to take a look at what steps may be taken to protect assets of this nature during a divorce given the news that Amazon's founder is splitting from his wife after 25 years of marriage. The couple will be dividing assets estimated to be valuated at nearly $140 billion.

Studies look at attractiveness and marriage longevity

When a New Jersey spouse is in a relationship with a significant disparity in physical attractiveness, they could be more vulnerable to divorce. Analysts have pointed out that there is a body of research that supports such conclusions. Despite this, one survey of online dating practices found that people tend to pursue others who are more attractive than they are.

Parents and kids fare better in joint custody agreements

According to research studies, joint physical custody agreements are generally better for divorced parents in New Jersey and their children. Unless there is a compelling reason such as domestic abuse or child negligence, a father's caregiving and guidance is just as important as a mother's nurturing.
