What is a Hague adoption and how do you qualify?

If you are a New Jersey couple or individual seeking to adopt a child from a foreign country, you should know that it can be a very complicated process since you must comply not only with the laws of the United States but the laws of the country from which you attend to adopt.

What is a kinship adoption? Is it right for me?

When many people think of adoption, they think of a married man and woman adopting an infant or young child to whom they have no relation. This type of adoption may be the most widely known, but it is not the most common. The most common are kinship adoptions, or adoptions by a relative.

Wealthy families and prenuptial agreements

Some children in wealthy New Jersey families may feel pressure from their parents to have a prospective spouse sign a prenuptial agreement. Although this is often well meaning, with parents concerned about protecting the family wealth in case of divorce, children may see it as an attack on their future spouse.

How shifting gender roles impact divorce rates

Shifting gender roles in society is impacting divorce rates. Many New Jersey marriages still retain traditional gender roles where the husband is the primary breadwinner and earns more than his wife. According to reports by Swedish researchers, marriages that begin with this dynamic and then change as a result of the wife having a career and then earning more than her husband have a higher chance in ending in divorce.

How child visitation schedules are created and why

A child visitation schedule may be created by parents or the court in New Jersey either during or after a divorce. It sets out a schedule for the child's time with each parent that parents must abide by. It is separate from a custody schedule, which is a schedule that is set up if parents are sharing custody.

Ensuring that children spend time with fathers after divorce

More than 40 percent of first marriages end in divorce. This means a lot of children end up caught in the middle. Parents in New Jersey may need to be particularly careful to ensure that after divorce, a child is still able to maintain a relationship with the father.

Why people might want to consider prenuptial agreements

When New Jersey residents are planning to get married, they may be worried when their fiancés say that they want to sign prenuptial agreements. Doing so does not mean that the couple is necessarily planning for their marriage to end in the future, however. It may instead be used as a vehicle to help to reduce potential conflict and enrich the marriage.

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.
