Are children of divorced parents more likely to get divorced?

One of the main considerations couples with children has when going through a divorce is how the divorce is going to impact their children. When children are younger, the expected psychological effect of the divorce is high, which is parents try their best to make the process as seamless as possible for their children. Research often backs up this claim, with many studies concluding that children of divorced parents are more likely to get divorced themselves. But New York residents may be surprised to learn that the factors that led to this conclusion are different from what they assumed.

What is virtual visitation?

With good jobs remaining difficult to find in these economic times, more and more people may find themselves choosing the place to live based on where they are working. For many, this is not a problem but divorced parents with children in New York may find themselves asking how it would affect their child custody and visitation rights. As expected, when a noncustodial parent-the parent who does not have physical custody of the children-has to move away, it can affect their visitation rights. However, technology is proving to be very useful in this situation, as parents can use various technological means to remain in touch with their children.

However, there are key things to think about -- and choices you have -- when it comes to dealing with the family home in a divorce.

Depending on your relationship with your ex-husband-to-be, this may seem like an impossible task.

How will my business be divided if there's no prenup?

When New York residents are getting their business off the ground, have invested minimal money and put countless hours of sweat in it, they hope, but never expect, it to become highly successful. Which is why they do not take precautions in protecting their businesses against a divorce. With around 50 percent of marriages ending in divorce, there is a very real possibility that a business owner may lose their business to their ex, or at the very least, have to become business partners with them. What can one do to protect their business assets against property division if there is no prenuptial agreement in place?
