In New York State, and everywhere else in the United States, there are many different reasons for a couple to want a divorce. Abandonment is one of them. One spouse may divorce the other spouse if the second has abandoned the other for a period of more than one year. Abandonment may occur when the spouse leaves the marital home with no intention of returning within one year and without the consent of the partner.
As most New York residents would agree, divorce is made more difficult when children are involved. While spouses are eager to move on to a new life, the children still want their parents to stay together under the same roof. Courts in the U.S., including in New York, often order one parent to take child custody and orders the other to pay child support.
Divorce definitely marks a crossroad in a New Yorker's life. It not only marks the end of a long-cherished relationship, but it also means that there are many things to handle, such as alimony payments and child support. At such a critical juncture, the person will definitely need support of people who not only empathize with the person, but who also help the person to make decisions with great confidence. That will help that person to begin the next phase of life.
Custodial parents in New York and the rest of the country would agree that child support is critical for the upbringing of a child of divorced parents. Therefore, when child support payments are inadequate or when they are not received on time, the custodial parent and the children have to deal with a number of difficulties. In order to modify payments, many parents choose to take legal action. One such child support dispute recently reached a settlement in Manhattan Supreme Court.
The end of a marriage closes some of life's doors and opens others. New York couples most often concentrate on the emotional problems and other related concerns, including spousal support, child support and other issues. An important consideration before discussing property division is the disposition of the marital home.
Divorce is an unfortunate reality for many people. And, if it happens during a holiday, it can stir a lot of different emotions. While there is the potential of meeting old friends who can give support at such a difficult time, there is also a possibility of meeting co-workers who are not aware of the fact that the person is getting divorced. This is a reality for many people in the United States, including people in New York.
Divorce is on the rise in the United States, including New York. The end of a marriage can arouse a lot of negative emotions including sadness, depression, frustration and anger. To minimize some of these emotions, many want to handle their divorce through mediation. So how do you go about choosing the right mediator for your divorce? Here are some key points to consider.
Will the divorce rate in the United States shoot up, plummet or stay relatively the same in our future? It may soon be difficult for citizens of the United States, including New York, to get an answer to that question. The Census Bureau has recently come up with a plan that may make it more difficult to determine whether the family law parameters are changing or not.
New York City is famous for being home to some of the biggest names in the field of politics, business, sports and entertainment. Naturally, New York City is the place where many high net-worth individuals are born and bred, where they live and marry and where they divorce. Therefore, the city and its residents are not unfamiliar with high asset divorce cases.
There are few easy paths to take through life. That’s certainly the case in what can be one of life’s most trying experiences: divorce.
