Discussions about gray divorce – getting divorced past the age of 50 – often focus on dividing retirement assets and other financial matters.

Divorce can stir strong resentments. So strong that some spouses will go to extreme measures to get around the law.
Mediation is preferable in many ways to taking your divorce to trial. In general, mediation is cheaper and quicker than going to court. It can reduce much of the animosity and uncertainty of divorce litigation.

Maybe you think back to the moment you said “yes” to your New Jersey home purchase as a near-magical memory. The house is perfect, you told your spouse. Quality schools are within walking distance. Lakes and parks surround us. The commutes to work are a breeze. Crime seems off-the-charts low. And the price turns out to be less than what we expected to pay.
That above-posed headline query is an interesting question, isn’t it? Legions of divorced parents in New Jersey and elsewhere badly want to help their off-to-school children, but not all of them are financially equipped to do so in an unlimited way.
