Under what conditions can alimony be modified?

When a couple divorces in New York, regardless of whether they have children or not, one of the most contentious issues in the divorce revolves around finances and support. If a couple has a prenuptial agreement or has come to an agreement about it post divorce, that is helpful; however, parties often end up dragging one another through courts to get what they deserve to maintain their standard of living and for what they gave up for the other party to succeed.

Is nesting the best option for me?

When a marriage ends, couples with children in New York want little more than ensuring the wellbeing of their children. Going from one house with two parents to two houses with one parent can be a difficult transition for them, and some couples try to minimize the effects of divorce on children by engaging in nesting. Nesting is a novel approach to custody arrangements and one that more and more couples are trying out.

Though couples may seem happy from the outside, each couple is dealing with their own struggles. There comes a point when some may decide they are no longer compatible with one another. Just like no two marriages are the same, no two divorces are similar to one another. Even two partners married to one another may want different things from the divorce.

Is my prenuptial agreement enforceable?

Last week's post detailed the reasons couples might want to sign a prenuptial agreement before they get married in Texas. With more couples in debt than ever before, marrying parties want to know who will assume these obligations if the marriage doesn't work out. They also want to be sure that if their business becomes the next 'Etsy', their sudden wealth will be protected. A prenuptial agreement is one way to take property division out of the court's hands and put it in the couple's.

What are your options if your ex is withholding your children?

Divorces can result in big, drawn-out messes. It isn't easy for a former couple to come to terms with the end of their relationship and work together to parent children. Still, agreements must be created and mutual respect and understanding is important to a functional co-parenting relationship. You may have thought that once the divorce was finalized, your issues with visitation and shared custody were over, but now you're having trouble seeing your children.
