Health care concerns may delay some divorces

Some New Jersey couples whose marriages are failing may decide to postpone a divorce until they have a better idea of what health care options may be available to them. The Affordable Care Act helps protect people who lose their health insurance by making it more widely available. This can be particularly important for people who have preexisting conditions or for those who are in the middle of treatment. However, Congress may repeal the ACA, and it is not yet clear what will replace it.

Some military professions have high divorce rates

Based on an analysis of the Census Bureau's Public Use Microdata Sample, the career website Zippia found that people in some professions are more likely to divorce compared to others. Of the top 10 career fields with the greatest number of divorces, three of them were military. Certain aspects of military careers such as long deployments can create a great deal of strain in a marriage. Military workers had the highest likelihood of divorce by age 30. Among all careers, divorces were most common for first-line enlisted military supervisors.

Divorce myth causes financial woes, damaged credit

New Jersey couples who are ending their marriages often rely on friends and family for advice regarding the divorce process. Unfortunately, this may mean getting professional assistance too late or not at all and suffering the consequences. A number of beliefs about division of property during divorce can set one or both partners up for serious losses in the final agreement.

Immigrant families seek help with custody issues

Child custody issues can weigh heavily on the minds of many New Jersey families. Among the parents dealing with thorny issues of custody and child care in unexpected situations are undocumented immigrants concerned about their status. Legal clinics are helping these families to prepare custody paperwork in the event that the parents face detention or deportation.
