What to do about a 401(k) in a divorce

A New Jersey couple going through a divorce may need to split a 401(k) account. To do this, either the couple or a judge will need to decide how the funds will be allocated. The division may not necessarily be 50/50. Next, the couple will need a document called a qualified domestic relations order. This allows a distribution to be made from the plan following divorce without incurring a penalty. However, the people need to be younger than 59.5 and the QDRO must be forwarded to a plan administrator for approval.

Some divorcing parents try 'birdnesting'

Many parents considering divorce in New Jersey are concerned about how their decisions will affect their children. Families often have two involved parents who hate to lose time with their children. However, joint custody solutions, in which both parents share roughly equal time with the children and responsibility for decision-making, are increasingly popular. In most cases, children move back and forth on a weekly or semi-weekly basis between their parents' homes.

4 preparation tips for your child custody hearing

When you can't reach an out-of-court settlement related to your child custody disagreement, you'll need to have a child custody hearing in court, and a judge will decide the matter. The experience of going into a child custody hearing can be nerve-wracking because the amount of time you spend with your children could be on the line.

What to consider when keeping the family home after a divorce

Determining whether or not to keep the family home can be one of the biggest decisions a former New Jersey couple may have to make during a divorce. While many former spouses want to keep the family home, especially if there are children involved, there are a few factors that the former couple should consider before making a final decision.

Answer these questions when negotiating a parenting agreement

Once you decide to divorce, it's important to do whatever you can to maintain stability for your children. It's not always easy, especially if you're not getting along with your soon-to-be ex-spouse, but you don't want to do anything that could have a negative impact on your children.

Do parents who share joint custody pay child support?

Many parents in New Jersey share joint custody of their children. Joint custody involves approximately equal parenting time and legal rights. Many parents are contemplating agreeing to share custody of their children wonder how child support works.

Changing the visitation schedule with a noncustodial parent

When it comes to visitation issues with a noncustodial parent, New Jersey court decisions are based on the best interests of the kids. Judges typically want to see plans or formal visitation orders so that the children are given the opportunity to spend quality time with both parents. In some instances, preventing a visitation could lead to legal ramifications.

What happens to a couple’s frozen embryos in a divorce?

As technology advances, couples are increasingly turning to alternative methods of procreation. Some couples pursue the path of embryo cryopreservation—a process by which an egg is fertilized through in vitro fertilization (IVF) and then frozen. The embryo can then be brought to term whenever the couple decides they’re ready to have a child.
