Dealing with unsolicited advice during your divorce

There are many reasons to limit the number of people you tell that you are divorcing to only those who really need to know.

Even then, it's often best not to share any more information than necessary.

Tips for having the break-up conversation with your spouse

You've made up your mind that you and your spouse need to separate. Maybe you're already separated, and you've decided it's time to begin the divorce process.

It is also more likely that women will experience poverty in comparison to men after divorce.

The complexities of asset division in a divorce

New Jersey couples with complex investments may face some challenges if they get a divorce. These challenges could be even greater if one person has handled the majority of the finances. The other person may be at a disadvantage and should learn what the shared and individual assets are.

Making a balanced decision on a strategic divorce

While the idea of a person asking their spouse for a divorce in order to save money may seem awkward, some New Jersey couples are considering doing just that.
