Three Common Divorce Myths that Plague Couples
With all the high-flying emotions people experience when considering divorce, it should come as little surprise that many people fear the unknown more than reality. If you’ve never been through this difficult, heart-breaking experience, you likely don’t really know the ins and outs of the legal process.
- Divorce always favors the wife. In the State of New Jersey, the state does its best to provide an egalitarian divorce. When dealing with a divorce, the courts have to take both spouses’ situations into account, and try to base decisions on the big picture. This means reflecting on how the couple lived, who did what during the marriage, whether there are children, and the amount of assets and debt involved in the particular situation. With an experienced family lawyer on your side, you can rest assured that you have the best chance an equitable outcome to divorce.
- Children of divorced parents tend to fare poorly. No child wants their parents to divorce and most parents likely wish they didn’t have to make the decision to split. However, divorce doesn’t have to be a bad thing for your children. If the exes work together in being good parents, the children will know they are loved – no matter who they live with.
- Divorces always end up getting messy. You can have an amicable divorce. If not friendly, then certainly civil. Stop the infighting and work toward a solution you can both live with forever. This is especially important if you have children. Agree to disagree when you must and negotiate when you can. Rely on your divorce lawyer to protect your rights.
Divorce laws in New Jersey are extremely complex. Make sure your rights and interests are protected not only in the short-term but for the foreseeable future. Don’t be short-sighted about issues such as alimony, asset distribution and child custody/support arrangements.
