Temporary Agreements During Divorce

Temporary Divorce Agreement Lawyer Monmouth County NJ Before any divorce can be finalized in New Jersey, agreements will need to be reached regarding the key issues of child custody and visitation, child support, alimony, and the division of marital assets and debt.

These temporary divorce agreements are legally referred to as "pendente lite agreements", and in today's article, we will discuss how and when pendente lite agreements can be requested, how they work, and whether...

Real Estate and Divorce

Real Estate and Divorce Attorney Sea Girt, NJ One of the most important parts of any divorce is that of the equitable distribution of marital assets. According to New Jersey law, all marital property must be divided "equitably", meaning in a fair manner but not necessarily equal. While there are many different types of assets which may be considered marital property, including owned businesses, retirement accounts, and even jointly owned debt, one of the most complex aspects of any division of assets agreement will be the division of owned properties such as homes, vacation homes, and other real estate properties. When a divorce...

Modernizing Prenuptial Agreements

Since their inception, prenuptial agreements have allowed soon-to-be married couples to clearly define how their marriage will affect their individual and joint financial responsibilities for years to come. Prenuptial agreements can allow these couples to define which of the assets that each party brings to a marriage or financially co-mingled relationship will remain individually owned, which will become jointly-owned assets, and how these assets should be divided in the event that the marriage or relationship should end. However, while prenuptial agreements and other marital agreements have traditionally handled more material assets such as homes and real-estate properties, investment accounts, retirement accounts,...

Settling Your Divorce: Understanding the Fine Print

When a person begins the divorce process, one of the first things that they can (and probably should) do is speak with an experienced divorce attorney. Barring a spouse's complete lack of willingness to negotiate or some other extreme circumstance, most divorce attorneys will advise their client to attempt to settle their divorce through pre-trial negotiations, rather than relying on the final rulings of a judge who has no knowledge of the unique lives, circumstances, and needs of the divorcing parties and their family as a whole. Of course, settling a divorce rather than relying on courtroom litigation has the benefit...

Drastic Changes Coming to Alimony Taxation in 2019

Coming in 2019, there will be drastic changes to the way alimony payments are taxed thanks to the release of the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act". While these changes will only apply to alimony agreements signed after December 31st, 2018 (meaning existing alimony agreements and taxation will remain unchanged), these changes are significant, and may cause you to either wish to finalize your divorce in 2018, or wait until 2019 depending on whether or plan to make alimony payments, or receive them. So what exactly are the changes coming to how alimony is taxed, and how might these changes affect you? Let's...

What Is an “Uncontested Divorce”?

Following up on our article from last week regarding contested divorces, today we will discuss when your divorce may be considered "uncontested", what exactly that means for you, and how the uncontested divorce process works. Uncontested Divorce in Ocean County, NJ When a spouse files the initial divorce complaint, the other spouse is given thirty-five (35) days to respond to the initial complaint. Should they choose to respond to the divorce complaint, their divorce will become "contested", meaning the two parties and their Ocean County divorce attorneys will need to negotiate and decide final terms for their divorce settlement agreement, including child...

What Is a “Contested” Divorce?

Many times, our Ocean County divorce clients will mistake the idea of a "contested divorce" with that of an "acrimonious divorce". While it is true that some divorces, when contested, are done so in an extremely contentious or acrimonious manner, that doesn't actually mean that every contested divorce has to be this way. In fact, many contested divorces are resolved amicably and efficiently through negotiations before ever actually needing to be sent to trial. So what does the term "contested divorce" actually mean, and how can a contested divorce be resolved without relying on a judge's final judgements? Let's take a look. Contested...
