Online dating's impact on relationships

Online dating sites may actually have positive effects for New Jersey residents. According to one study, it could actually create stronger marriages and allow people greater chances to make connections thanks to an increased dating pool. This may be responsible for a rise in interracial marriages or relationships between people who have different personality traits from their own.

How divorce may help save money

Few New Jersey couples look forward to getting divorced. It can be an emotionally draining time for themselves and their children. However, once a divorce is finalized, there may be no one to scrutinize another person's spending or other financial habits. Those who like to save are free to do put their paycheck in the bank or otherwise secure their financial future on their terms.

Study examines link between career fields and divorce

A recent study presented by FlowingData found that jobs associated with science and math tend to have lower divorce rates than those associated with night life or transportation. Some jobs that tend to attract rural populations, including military careers, forestry, farming and fishing, also have lower divorce rates. However, nightlife and travel-related jobs in New Jersey and throughout the U.S. have higher divorce rates.

How to aim for success in mediation

Mediation involves a couple sitting down with or without their attorneys and attempting to create a divorce agreement. It can be an alternative to litigation in many divorces, but it is important for New Jersey couples to prepare for the process in order to have the best outcome. The first step is to get ready for what may be a more emotional experience than they anticipate. A person who has suppressed feelings of anger or sadness might find them coming up in mediation. It is fine to ask for a break in order to regain composure in this situation.

Steps to ensure that alimony is deductible

Spousal support may be an issue in many divorces in New Jersey. When there is a substantial disparity in the incomes of divorcing spouses, judges may order the higher-earning spouses to pay spousal support to the lower-earning spouses for specific durations or for indeterminate periods.

When to choose mediation in a divorce

New Jersey couples who are getting a divorce may want to consider mediation instead of litigation. However, mediation is not the right choice for everyone. For mediation to work, the couple must generally wish each other well. If one person wants revenge, there could be problems in the process.

Post-divorce finances for women

Women in New Jersey who have gone through a divorce should reconsider how they handle their finances. The household income of a divorced woman drops an average of 41 percent according to information from a 2012 report by the United States Government Accountability Office. This is nearly two times the loss of income a man will sustain after a separation.

Health care concerns may delay some divorces

Some New Jersey couples whose marriages are failing may decide to postpone a divorce until they have a better idea of what health care options may be available to them. The Affordable Care Act helps protect people who lose their health insurance by making it more widely available. This can be particularly important for people who have preexisting conditions or for those who are in the middle of treatment. However, Congress may repeal the ACA, and it is not yet clear what will replace it.
