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.

How to proceed when a parental relocation plan is in the future

Once the divorce dust has settled and each parent has come to an agreement concerning their child's custody, many families work to establish a regular routine. It may then come as a shock when one party announces that he or she has decided to make a major change. While each state has its own laws regarding a parental relocation, there are likely many families in New York that have faced this situation.

In difficult child custody cases, parenting class may offer help

Couples who are in the midst of a divorce are often so emotionally overwrought that it is difficult to focus on their children. In some cases, there is so much animosity toward one another, the child custody issue becomes a game of one- upmanship. Some New York families may find themselves in this situation right now.

Congressman Sanford cites post-divorce modifications for split

Those who are selected to represent the citizens in government are expected to live by a certain standard. While there is no shortage of marital strife and divorce in the high-pressure world of politics, difficulties related to post-divorce modifications are not frequently discussed. However, these issues do come up -- even here in New York -- and they require time and attention to be resolved appropriately. 

U.S. Supreme Court has intervened in family, child custody cases

In most situations, cases involving family law matters are handled within the family's jurisdiction and do not require input from the federal court system. However, there have been a few cases where the U.S. Supreme Court has intervened in child custody and divorce cases. In spite of the rarity, when the top court has been involved, the decisions have sometimes brought changes, even here in New York.

How to unearth hidden assets during a contentious divorce

In some cases, both spouses have come to the conclusion that the marriage is no longer viable, but they have not yet openly discussed it with each other. Instead, one or the other may be working hard to ensure that he or she will survive the impending divorce with a financial parachute. There are ways that hidden assets can be uncovered, and residents in New York may benefit from learning some of the methods to do so.

New York courts view child support, visitation issues separately

Often, once a divorce is finalized by the courts, it is over. There is no need to revisit the issues that may have led to the dissolution of the marriage. However, if children are involved, then there may be ongoing matters related to both child support and visitation. New York families may have reason to seek revisions to either in the event their circumstances may have changed.

Some suggestions for older women going through divorce
