Wise financial decisions important during divorce

One of the most stressful parts of any divorce in New Jersey is how to handle finances. In many divorce cases, the divorcing individuals are at odds about how to split their shared assets. A few tips may help a person going through the dissolution of a marriage to make wise financial decisions.

In many jurisdictions, more than half of all child support payments are handled through income withholding.

The woman in question in this case was injured at Fenway Park when a bat broke and then hit her.

A case in another state shows how dementia affects divorce

New Jersey residents may be interested to know that getting dementia can keep people from divorcing. A judge in another state has ruled that a man is not competent enough to get a divorce. This could be a game changing decision for anyone who is seeking a divorce later in life.
