Divorce and your estate plan

It is important to review your estate plan after you finalize your divorce. Depending on how it is set up, you may need to make some changes to ensure that your assets do not go to your ex. Some examples include:

Covid-19 and Its Impact on the Valuation of Your Family-Owned Business in Your Divorce Matter

New Jersey law makes businesses owned by a spouse subject to potential claim and division in a divorce case. Part of the process involves fixing a present value to the business interest. Covid-19 will most likely impact the valuation of your family-owned business during your divorce proceedings.

Paying for Attorney's Fees in a New Jersey Divorce or Family Law Matter

The issue of paying for attorney's fees in a New Jersey Divorce or Family Law matter comes up often. There is no rule in family law cases that the party who files for divorce or begins the custody dispute must pay for the other party's attorney. There is, however, authority in the law for a judge to potentially require one person to advance or pay the other party's fees. Family Court is a Court of equity, meaning the element of fairness is to be considered when a judge has to decide an issue. New Jersey law therefore gives a judge authority to grant an award of attorney's fees based on the financial situation if needed to level the playing field - to prevent one party from prevailing simply because he or she can afford to pay an attorney more. A judge may also award attorney's fees when one party has acted in bad faith, such as by violating a Court Order or taking a position that is blatantly unreasonable.

Protecting yourself from a dishonest ex during divorce

Trust is difficult to build and very easy to lose. It is also something missing from many divorcing couples. Under these circumstances, many people feel as though there is no hope of working out a solution to the various issues related to the divorce without going to court.

Divorcing? Have these financial documents ready

Divorce takes a major toll on the marital and separate assets of each person going through the process. Because of this, people can be very focused on maximizing their financial settlement. However, this can be extremely difficult if you do not have the information you need to fight for what you deserve.
