Grandparent custody and visitation interests

Although grandparents may have many opinions about how their grandchildren will be raised, they have little legal ground for impacting these young lives. In some cases, outspoken and opinionated grandparents find that their ability to spend time with these youngsters can be limited because of disagreements with the parents. An interest in spending time might not be legally guaranteed, but there are some situations in which a New Jersey grandparent could gain visitation rights or even custody through the court system.

Retirement considerations in a divorce

While half of all marriages no longer end in divorce, adults over the age of 50 are more likely to divorce than in previous decades. New Jersey who are near retirement and considering divorce may want to think about keeping their retirement accounts safe.

Expenses not qualified for child support

New Jersey parents are very aware that raising a child today can be very expensive. Child support payments are intended to help mitigate the costs after a divorce, but there are limits to what the payments can be used for. Parents who are receiving child support should be mindful that certain services, activities or goods they may consider essential for the upbringing of their children may be considered as optional by the court.

Dissipation of assets

Strong emotions often characterize the end of a marriage. When couples in New Jersey divorce, there are situations in which one spouse may seek to discomfit the other one. This sometimes takes the form of actively working against fair and equitable property division.
