Unanticipated costs may catch spouses off guard during divorce

If two spouses are having a hard time getting along, then getting divorced may not be a bad idea. This is true despite how heartbreaking, taxing and stressful divorce can be. Being prepared for often unexpected costs can make the divorce process a bit easier to manage in New York.

Deception on part of spouse can be costly during divorce

During a marital breakup in New York, spouses sometimes find out that the other party has been hiding property or reporting less income than was actually learned. In every divorce proceeding, each spouse is legally obligated to disclose any and all expenses, debt, assets and income. Unfortunately, some divorcing parties try to steal, lie or cheat in an effort to keep more assets for themselves.

Knowing finances an important part of divorce

The process of dissolving a marriage in New York is not just an emotionally challenging experience -- it can be a financially difficult one too. A U. S. Government Accountability Office report from 2012 indicated that divorce can lead to more than a 40 percent decrease in income for females. Meanwhile, this drop is more than 20 percent for men.

Health savings accounts must be addressed during divorce

Health savings accounts may seem as though they have been around forever. The reality is that they have been in existence in the United States for only 13 years. As a result, those who are going through divorce in New York may understandably not know how to deal with them during the process of property division.

Divorce aspects may impact financial lives of New York residents

Dealing with money problems under any circumstances can prove stressful. When New York residents go through divorce, they may find that their finances have taken much harder hits than they were expecting. As a result, they may begin looking for ways to get their financial affairs back on track while continuing to provide for themselves and their families.

Prenuptial agreements may be of use to New York business owners

Some New York residents may wait until they have reached a successful career point before getting married. However, after obtaining a certain amount of wealth or seeing their businesses reach a milestone, individuals may feel concerned that they could potentially lose some of their hard-earned wealth in the event of divorce. Luckily, prenuptial agreements could help protect those assets. 

Financial strategies during separtion to consider before divorce

For many couples in Long Island who are considering ending their marriages, the first step may be a trial separation. Regardless of whether it ends in divorce or not, a physical separation often gives each spouse the time to consider what a divorce would mean and whether it is the right decision. While a separation tends to be an emotional time, it still allows an individual an important opportunity to take the steps necessary for ensuring that his or her personal financial situation is well-handled.

Asset and property division considerations in New York divorces

Statistically, the month of March brings with it a peak in the number of divorces that occur annually. Researchers theorize this is at least partially due to the holiday season and its accompanying stresses, ultimately culminating in formal divorce proceedings several months later. Regardless of the cause, these statistics mostly mean that this is a time many residents of New York will be facing the emotional stresses and financial issues that accompany divorce, from determining property division to understanding how the end of their marriage may affect retirement savings.

Ending long-term marriages may bring unique divorce legal issues

At a time when splitting up has grown less common among younger generations, the opposite is proving true for the age group commonly referred to as baby boomers. In fact, among individuals over the age of 50, the rate of divorce has essentially doubled since the 90s. For New York couples considering ending their marriage later in life, this trend may bring with it its own unique set of divorce legal issues.
