Forensic accountants sometimes used in divorces

Many couples in New Jersey who have substantial assets and whose marriages are ending may have heard their respective divorce attorneys suggest that a forensic accountant be retained. Some assets are hard to locate, and many others are hard to place a valuation on for purposes of the property division aspect of the proceedings.

Ben and Jen using divorce mediation

Divorcing parents in New Jersey may be able to learn from the way that actors Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are handling their divorce. Garner and Affleck, who have three children together, have decided to settle their divorce issues outside of court with the help of a neutral divorce mediator. The ex-couple released a public statement confirming that they plan to co-parent and remain on amicable terms.

Child custody and visitation when divorce is not an issue

Although divorce is the most common scenario in which visitation and child custody rights are sought in New Jersey courts, there are also many situations in which these rights don't relate to the end of a marriage. For example, unmarried couples might seek custody and visitation agreements through the court system. Third parties, often the relatives of the children involved in a custody action, could act on behalf of a child who is suffering from parental neglect or other negative living situations. All states have some form of visitation laws to protect the rights of grandparents as well, which could result in legal action in some cases.
