Forethought can protect assets in the event of a divorce

Ending a marriage can be complicated when two people have been together for a significant length of time. Property division process can be particularly complex, and many eyes are on the recently announced split of Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, and his wife, MacKenzie. While that divorce could be interesting, few people have that kind of money and may be concerned about protecting more modest assets in the event of a divorce in New Jersey, which is an equitable distribution state.

Parental mental illness and its effect on child custody

Mental illness is not something people -- whether they reside in New Jersey or elsewhere -- like to talk about. There is a stigma attached to individuals with mental health concerns that make those suffering afraid to seek the help that they need or turn to others for support. If a person with a mental illness has children, some may question his or her ability to properly care for those children. This means that, when going through the divorce process, a person's mental health could end up affecting his or her child custody arrangements.

Contentious child custody battles can be detrimental to children

Divorce is never easy and can be especially difficult when children are involved. Some splits are amicable and the couple make their own child custody arrangements. When that is not possible, the issue of child custody can be a very painful one and can lead to unpleasant outcomes in New Jersey.
