We referenced in a recent blog post what one national publication termed “a really big case” in the realm of divorce-linked asset transfer and distribution. Our November 15 post focused specifically on the common scenario involving the transfer from one divorcing spouse to the other of company-sponsored retirement funds and individual retirement accounts, respectively.
Divorce commentators commonly stress that marital splits often have some commonality regarding their core issues, but that there is no such thing as a “typical” divorce. The divorce process poses unique challenges and opportunities for every separating couple in New Jersey and nationally.
If you’re a soon-to-be former spouse engaged in New Jersey divorce negotiations while worried that your impending ex is hiding marital assets from you, schedule a date.
Don’t do this if you’re out of sorts over the way your divorce negotiations are going. And be on the lookout for it if you’re an impending ex who just wants to be sure that you’re getting your equitable share of the marital assets in a less-than-amicable split.
We’ll spell it out.
A fundamental point to note about New Jersey divorce is that some matters can very much be left to the discretion of soon-to-be exes and/or a judge (alimony, for example, which can be negotiated and additionally adjusted by the court).
We reference a slightly dusted-off article from earlier this year in today’s blog post to underscore a divorce-related point that merits reiteration from time to time.
We duly noted a flurry of divorce-tied activity in a relatively recent blog post, stressing in our May 1 entry that some family law pundits “expect a rush of divorce filings before the end of this year.”
Every divorce in New Jersey and elsewhere is deeply meaningful for participants. We note on our Somerville family law website at The Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh that such is the case “no matter your station in life.”
Most people start learning about money early in life. Whether it’s earning an allowance or making change to buy gum from a vending machine, the idea is clear. You get money and then you save it or spend it. While that’s a valid foundation for later in life, money is rarely that simple.
