To stay or not to stay in a marriage

Most New Jersey couples don't walk down the aisle with the idea that their marriages will later end in divorce. It is understandable that deciding to divorce often involves people spending time thinking about the reasons for and against it. There are reasons why people might want to stay together, and there are also reasons why ending a marriage may be the best option in certain cases.

Parental alienation syndrome and child abuse

Some New Jersey parents who are ending their marriages may have heard of the concept of "parental alienation" and be concerned about whether it might affect their own efforts to get custody of their children. "Parental alienation" is the idea that one parent might deliberately turn their child against the other parent. This could include allegations of child abuse in an effort to make that parent lose custody.

Fathers sometimes struggle for equal treatment as parents

When a New Jersey couple divorces, decisions about child custody and support might be reached through mutual agreement or imposed by a family court. Anecdotal evidence strongly suggests that men receive unfair treatment by biased courts that regard them as unequal parents. In most cases courts award mothers primary physical custody, which then gives them some power to dictate how and when fathers can interact with children.

The benefits of prenups for entrepreneurs

New Jersey business owners who are considering getting married may wish to give thought to what could become of their valuable assets should their marriage ever end. Although it might seem unlikely, the business itself could benefit from having a prenuptial agreement that carefully outlines which aspects of the company are separate and which are jointly owned.
