Arming New Jersey residents with divorce knowledge

There are many reasons that couples seek to avoid divorcing, even if it is actually in their best interests to get a divorce. Some people are afraid that they will become social pariahs or that their children's lives will be detrimentally affected by the divorce. Other couples are simply afraid of what will happen in a divorce case because they are unsure of how their particular circumstances will play out during the divorce proceedings.

The chief issues that many people are concerned about are asset division and spousal support, also known as alimony. Asset division is a particularly serious concern in New Jersey, since state laws do not automatically split marital assets equally. This means that couples will likely have to argue for their claims to certain properties if they hope to receive what they believe is rightfully theirs. Of course, you will also have to make a case to determine how much alimony you deserve.

These are only some of the issues that divorcing couples are likely to face. If there are children involved in the marriage, then there will be even more concerns to address in the divorce proceedings, including the custody and support agreement for the child. The courts always try to do what is in the best interests of the child, but it is up to the parents to demonstrate why they deserve to be involved in a child's life.

Divorce can be a frightening prospect, but it is important that you do not let fear of the unknown keep you from getting a divorce that will be better for you, your spouse and your child in the long run.
