Answering Common Divorce Questions

After you’ve filed for divorce or signed the paperwork filed by your spouse, a lot of questions will likely enter your head. This is common. Even if you’ve done your homework it can be downright impossible to prepare for such a life-changing event. Let’s take a look at some of the most common divorce questions asked by people of all ages and provide you with some answers in today’s post.

How do I end the relationship on an affordable level?

This has to be one of the most common New Jersey divorce questions asked because some people simply want to get away from their spouse as quickly as possible but don’t want to see their money disappear. The simple answer here is that you need to aim for an uncontested divorce. That means you shouldn’t get into a stalemate with your spouse about every little thing from the marriage. When this happens it’s very likely that you will be headed to court. You need to come to an agreement on the child custody, child support, division of assets and more with the help of your divorce attorney in Cinnaminson.

I have an urgent situation. Do I have to wait years to appear in court?

Many people facing divorce want to see the marriage end so desperately that they don’t want to have to wait years to appear in court. In fact, it’s possible for a judge to issue orders regarding child custody, child support, and division of assets quickly. These are known as temporary orders but more often than not they wind up being the final orders approved in the divorce. If you have been the victim of domestic abuse you need to speak with a divorce attorney immediately who will help you acquire protective orders.

What happens when we agree on some things and not on others?

It’s very likely that you and your spouse will not agree on everything when discussing the divorce and this makes sense. There was a breakdown of communication somewhere down the line in your marriage and it will definitely carry over into the divorce and negotiations when it comes to dividing assets. It’s alright for you to agree on some items and not on others. It doesn’t mean that the judge will overrule your decisions. In fact, the judge will only rule on the issues at hand that have yet to be decided.

How do I make my children a priority in divorce?

Going through a divorce is bad enough. It is even worse when children are involved. Even though your marriage has come to an end you still need to co-parent. You need to put differences aside with your spouse and work to provide your children with the best atmosphere possible. You might want to think about visiting a child psychologist when going through a divorce. This can be an invaluable form of support.
