Social media prenup clauses

Some New Jersey couples may wonder what happens if his or her partner posts something damaging to their reputation on social media. It could be something that was spur of the moment like a revealing bathing suit photo, or it could be a more organized attack after the relationship has gone sour. Either way, what goes on the Internet has a way of staying there. That's why some couples are including clauses about social media in their prenuptial agreements.

The basics of asset division in a New Jersey divorce

New Jersey residents who are about to get a divorce may be interested in hearing some basic advice about asset division. New Jersey courts follow equitable distribution principles, and thus absent an agreement between the parties a court will divide up marital property in a manner that it deems fair. If possible, parties may want to try reaching a divorce settlement outside of court.

Are lovebirds who tweet together likely to stay together?

Social media has created a new world of communicating. Whether for business or personal reasons, from the inception of MySpace, to more recent apps like Twitter, Snapchat, Vine and Instagram, communications have become faster and, in some cases, more secretive. If a Snapchat message disappears within 10 seconds after it is posted, what harm can there be? But a new study says that, at least where Twitter is concerned, those that use that app the most are more likely to be involved in conflicts with their partners. These types of conflicts can lead to serious issues, and potentially lead to divorce.

Handling debt during a New Jersey divorce

One of the most complicated parts of divorce, particularly for those who do not have children, is the property division process. Whether a married couple has significant assets, or is of more modest means, dividing a household and joint finances is never easy. In addition to divvying up assets and property, divorcing couples also need ensure that debts are fairly separated.

Can you sue your ex over your child's mistake? No, says NJ court

One of the most common problems divorcing parents face is reconciling the differences between each other's parenting style. In most cases, both parents want the best for their children, but the personality clashes that led to divorce in the first place often manifest themselves in the ways parents try to care for their kids.

Courts and child custody: More discretion or more guidelines?

In an ideal world, all divorcing or separating parents would be able to share parenting time on a 50-50 basis. Of course, every family situation is unique, and parenting plans have to be carefully crafted to protect the best interest of children; not every parenting plan provides for equally shared time with the kids.
