Some mistakes divorcing people make

New Jersey couples who are going through the divorce process expect to pay an emotional toll when they dissolve their marriages, but financial costs can be heavy as well. Decisions made in anger sometimes lead to monetary losses. Common financial mistakes could often be avoided through patience and due diligence.

Substance abuse not a barrier to child visitation rights

New Jersey parents who also have substance abuse problems might not be denied access to their children in a divorce due to that issue. Courts will consider several factors and will work from the assumption that most of the time, children are better off having contact with both parents.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner divorce highlights co-parenting

Divorcing couples in New Jersey could take some cues from the largely drama-free divorce of actors Ben Affleck, 42, and Jennifer Garner, 43. Although celebrity divorces tend to be headline-grabbing disputes, the Affleck and Garner split illustrates how some spouses quietly choose to end a marriage and go forward as parents.

Debt and divorce in New Jersey

When a New Jersey couple goes through a divorce, their assets as well as their debts will be divided by the court according to the principle of equitable distribution if they are otherwise unable to agree on a settlement. However, how the debt is divided may partially depend on who is legally responsible for the obligation. For instance, if a couple had a joint credit card, both parties may be responsible for that debt regardless of who was expected to make the payment.
