Things New York seniors need know about divorce

The divorce rate of those in their senior years doubled between the years 1990 and 2010, according to a recent study. Although remarriages often result in higher divorce rates, second or third marriages weren't the only culprits. The study found that close to 50 percent of those getting a divorce were on their first marriage.

How divorce can impact your retirement

New York couples facing divorce are worried about settling immediate concerns, such as child custody and living arrangements. In the midst of the complex process of ending a marriage, it is easy to lose sight of matters that will be important in the future, including retirement. As a major life event and legal process, divorce will impact long-term savings. 

Job changes can trigger a New York divorce

According to the chief psychologist at New York City's Beth Israel Medical Center, going through a significant change in one's employment can be a causal factor in deciding to move toward divorce. While each couple is unique and will have a blend of stressors, it appears as if moving through major job changes can place a significant amount of pressure on both spouses. For individuals who are going through a difficult time in their marriage, it can be difficult to know when circumstances have passed the point of no return, making divorce the best course of action.

Woman seeks high amount of child support from billionaire husband

New York readers may be familiar with the high asset divorce case of the ultra-wealthy Anne Dias Griffin and Ken Griffin, including their highly public battle over monthly financial support.

Collaborative divorce may be a beneficial option

When approaching divorce, New York couples may be looking for ways to decrease expenses and avoid litigation. It is always a complex process when two people separate their lives and finances, but there may be ways to make this process easier on all parties. Collaborative divorce is an option for couples who are willing and able to work together to resolve certain issues, thereby avoiding court. 

Parenting after divorce: what is best for the kids

One of the unfortunate consequences of divorce is the emotional toll that it can have on the children. Divorce may not be easy, but New York parents can make the effort to smooth this transition for all parties and provide stability for the children during a difficult time. One of the primary ways to accomplish this is by pursuing a custody arrangement that both protects the interests of the children and the rights of the parents. 

Finding the right help during a divorce may make the difference

As we are all aware, the happily-ever-after is mainly the stuff of fairy tales and not compatible with reality. In real life, close to half of all marriages end in divorce. While a divorce is an emotionally difficult experience, you do not have to tough it out on your own. There are compassionate professionals located here in New York who can help guide you through this challenging time.

Many call for reforms in child support and how fathers are viewed

In 1986, Bill Moyers interviewed a father who actually bragged about not helping to provide for his six offspring. The resulting fallout led to greater enforcement of child support orders. There are many who are now calling for much-needed reform in how these monies are collected and the often over-looked value that non-custodial fathers can have in the lives of their children. There may be thousands of children in New York who could benefit from more time with their fathers.

If marriage to foreign national fails, divorce legal issues begin

There have been many accounts of people marrying foreign-born spouses in order to help them gain lawful entry to America. While there have been many legitimate cases where two people from different nations marry out of pure motives, there are doubtless many more stories based on fraudulent attempts to obtain a temporary visa. The trouble starts when the marriage hits the rocks and then real divorce legal issues begin. New York is a major center of multiculturalism and as a result there may be many couples preparing for the complexities of divorce from a foreign-born spouse.
