Divorce ahead for actor Jesse Williams

New Jersey fans of actor Jesse Williams, who stars on the TV show "Gray's Anatomy," may have heard that he is getting a divorce from his wife of nearly five years, Aryn Drake-Lee. She is a real estate broker. The couple have been together for around 10 years and have two children together, a 3-year-old daughter and a son who is almost 2.

Preparing for a custody battle

New Jersey parents involved in a custody battle obviously want a favorable outcome from litigation, and several factors are considered when determining child custody. Parents must understand what courts are looking for to meet a judge's standards.

How child support should be used

Despite the fact that both parents are legally mandated to support their children, child support often goes unpaid. One study in the 1990s found that while almost half of child support payments were in default, the same was true of only 3 percent of car loans. However, in some cases, a New Jersey parent might struggle to keep up child support payments because the amount has been set so high. In other cases, custodial parents might abuse the system by using the child support money for their own personal items.

Having a physical disability and paying child support

In some cases, suddenly having a physical disability can affect how well people are able to meet their financial obligations. New Jersey parents who receive or have to pay child support may be interested to know what happens if the party who is obligated to pay experiences a physical disability.

Why prenuptial agreements matter for business owners

New Jersey business owners who plan to get married or who are already married may be wise to draft agreements with their spouses that address how one spouse may leave the company in the event that a divorce happens. When business owners fail to have such agreements in place, they may risk losing their companies if they later get divorced.
