New York child custody: yes or no to collaborative arrangements

Choosing to divorce or call it quits on a relationship happens and that is okay. Sometimes, even though it can be difficult, it is simply for the best. For those who have children to consider, many may find that making post-relationship child care arrangements can be challenging. Thankfully, parents in New York and elsewhere have several options available to them when figuring out child custody.

Laws about basic child support and relief for low-income earners

Having enough money to provide for one's children and oneself is a major cause of stress for a parent. Numerous parents count on child support in order to afford basic necessities. Every state has specific calculations which are used to determine the amounts of support orders. However, at least in New York, a different set of rules concerns child support payments for low-income earners.

How specific can a prenuptial agreement be?

Drafting and signing marital contracts is becoming a pretty common practice among couples in New York and elsewhere. While thinking of marriage as a business arrangement is not romantic by any means, taking this stance by pursing a prenuptial agreement can simply offer certain assurances, protections and even a sense of calm before pledging one's life and love to another. These agreements can be extremely specific. How much so depends on each couples' wishes.

New York divorce: Think ahead, not just in the moment

Though easier said than done, thinking ahead when in the midst of divorce is important. Why? Failing to do so can have a significant impact on one's post-divorce financial situation. It is not uncommon for couples in New York or elsewhere to want to finalize their divorce proceedings as quickly as possible. However, this does not mean that either party has to walk away from his or her fair share of assets.
