Family law: Can you tell divorce facts from fiction?

Divorce is not all that uncommon, so it is easy to see why some New York residents might be hanging on to outdated information. The reality is simply that divorce is changing. Long-held beliefs about family law, the divorce rate and whether unhappy parents should stick it out are usually no longer relevant. Consider some of the following divorce information.

Family law: Finding security in a prenup

There are a lot of misconceptions about prenuptial agreements. One of those misconceptions is that prenups are only for the very wealthy or for those who have a number of assets to protect. Another is that couples only sign prenups when they anticipate getting divorced. Neither of these are true. In family law, prenuptial agreements are helpful planning tools for virtually all couples in New York.

Family law: Can I minimize my post-divorce taxes?

It is not uncommon for a person to pay spousal support to his or her ex-spouse after a divorce. Indeed, spousal support is very important to the financial security of a spouse who either earned less or stayed home to care for children. Unfortunately, recent changes to the tax laws affected family law and created a situation where payers might end up paying less while receiving fewer tax benefits. Those tax benefits can be found elsewhere in certain situations.

Are fathers treated fairly in family law matters?

Despite the increasingly active roles that dads play in the lives of their children, popular entertainment media still tends to portray fathers as incompetent when it comes to child rearing. This is hardly the case for many New York fathers, but the perception of fathers as less caring persists. These biases also show up in family law. In many instances, fathers believe they are treated unfairly in terms of child custody.

How do women fare in family law matters like divorce?

One of the biggest issues women worry about after divorce is their finances.
