In sickness and in health

Whatever the wedding vows a couple takes, divorces often occur after one of the spouses becomes severely ill. According to one study, this is particularly true for couples over the age of 50 when it’s the wife who is stricken with an illness.

New York prenuptial agreement: give adequate time to negotiate

Depending on personal circumstances, some couples may automatically assume a prenuptial agreement will be created before they say their I do's. Others, however, may not expect such a document to be presented to them from their significant other. Those who are considering a prenuptial agreement, whether they live in New York or elsewhere, have a lot to think about, and both soon-to-be spouses should be given sufficient time to negotiate and review the specifics of a marital contract.

New York divorce proceedings -- what to expect

Coming to the decision to proceed with a divorce is not one that couples in New York tend to make lightly. It is tough to know if taking such a significant step is really the right choice. While the unknown can be frightening, knowledge is power, and gaining an understanding of the process of divorce and what to expect can make this decision a little easier to handle.

The dissolution of marriage can affect economic status

Few people, both men and women, are able to get through a divorce and maintain the same standard of living they had when married. The dissolution of marriage simply takes its toll, both emotionally and financially, on couples and families living in New York and elsewhere. The men and women who remained at home during the marriage, in order to take care of children or for other reasons, seem to be hurt the most from an economic standpoint when all is said and done.

Non-parent held responsible for $30,000 in child support payments

Virtually no one in New York would argue that a parent does not have the responsibility to assist in the financial care of his or her child. In fact, child support laws are in place to ensure that the custodial parent has the financial support needed to provide for the needs of a shared child or children. There are cases, however, in which a child support ruling is made that goes beyond the scope of parents providing for their children. One recent example has led to a great deal of debate on the reach of child support laws and the impact that rulings can have on non-parents.
