Don't let these money-saving measures cost you a fair divorce

Getting a divorce can be stressful for several reasons. People can be scared about what will happen to their children; they may be bracing for a bitter, contentious legal batter. On top of these concerns, people can be worried about how much their divorce will cost.

Stress over the cost of a divorce is understandable, particularly in New Jersey, where we rank in the top six states of most expensive places to divorce. However, to save money, some people make misguided choices that can prove to be quite costly.

Charged with theft? Here is what you need to know.

Theft covers a range of criminal offenses with various degrees of penalties. Depending on the nature of your specific case, you could be facing jail time, substantial fines, restitution and other punishment. It is in your interests to learn more about these types of charges and how you can defend against these allegations. 

Property crimes may not seem that serious. After all, no one was hurt and the value of the property may not be that high. In reality, any criminal conviction can leave a permanent mark on your criminal record. Theft offenses are viewed as a character issue, which can affect everything from job applications to child custody proceedings. Your long-term interests are worth protecting, and you will want to build a strong defense against shoplifting or theft charges.

Insulating your children from your divorce as much as possible

Your marital relationship has reached a point where you decided it was time to go your separate ways. Part of your reasoning may be because you don't want to continue subjecting your children to your arguing, discord and ill feelings toward each other. After all, they aren't the reason that you and your spouse can no longer live together as a married couple.

Like other parents here in New Jersey, you and your spouse may agree that you need to protect your children as much as possible from the divorce process. In order to do that, you decide to work together to create a parenting plan that provides them as much access to each of you as possible and helps them maintain some consistency, security and support as they transition into a new way of life.

Reverse mortgage: an increasingly noted foreclosure catalyst

We prominently underscore a key point for our valued New Jersey readers concerning financial solvency and security on our website at the established Somerville Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh.

That is this: “When issues arise that affect you and your family’s home and future, you are entitled to have the assistance of experienced professionals.”

January annually a key month in the divorce realm

There’s a clear reason why every machine and piece of workout equipment seems to be in constant use during January in health clubs in New Jersey and nationally. The same holds true to explain an annual January uptick in subscribers to weight-loss programs and various self-help programs of all sorts.

The motivator: end-of-year resolve and the good-faith intention of legions of Americans to make adjustments in areas where they believe change is fundamentally necessary.

Getting divorced? Here's what you should know about alimony

When you go through a divorce, you know that your financial interests are on the line. It's important to secure a final order that provides you with stability and security well into the future, and for you, this may include getting alimony. Alimony, also called spousal support, are payments made from the higher-earning spouse to the other spouse after divorce.

The intent of these payments is to offset any financial inequity brought on by a divorce. When there is significant inequity between the earning capacities of the two spouses, divorce can be financially devastating for the one who earns less. If you believe you have a rightful claim to this type of support, it may be helpful to learn more about these payments and what you can do to get the full amount you need. 

Single-parent households: an increasing reality in American life

The United States is unquestionably different from other nations spanning the globe in myriad ways. The country’s racial and ethnic diversity is pronounced. Political views range broadly across a seemingly endless spectrum. The U.S. commands the world’s largest economy and is comparatively blessed with an abundance of natural resources unrivaled anywhere else.

The American family too comprises an element of national life that is distinctly different in a collective sense from what exists in other nations.

Which type of protective order would benefit your situation?

Due to factors that you cannot control the choices of your partner or someone else who lives in your home, it's possible you may live in fear for your safety or that of your children. In this situation, it may be wise to consider the benefits of a certain type of protective order. These are legal orders that can help protect you from the continued threat of harm. 

If you think you may be in danger, there is no time to lose in getting the right type of help. This includes finding out which type of protective order could be the right choice for your situation. It may be beneficial to immediately secure the legal help you need to effectively navigate the appropriate steps required when seeking protection against any type of domestic violence.

Swift and negative HOA response to homeowners’ Christmas lights

We present a Christmas tale today in one of our last blog posts of the year at The Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh.

Candidly, it strays a bit from customary narratives this time of year marked by merriment and festivities. Instead, it features a year-end spat between a married couple living in a planned community and their homeowners association.

2020 foreclosure forecast is varied, uneven nationally

Seeking relevant data on residential foreclosure activity is somewhat akin to inquiring what tomorrow’s weather will bring.

To wit: not enough information. Some things require a tight focus on specific areas and what is happening locally. In the realm of real property and linked foreclosure activities, that rings fundamentally true.
