Postnups and at-home parents

Whether you and your spouse in New Jersey have been married for many years or are newly married, you may end up making different decisions about raising children than what you originally planned. It is not uncommon for people to assume that both parents will continue to work after they have kids but to later on choose for one parent to stay home with the children. If you are the parent who is going to give up your career, you may want to consider creating a postnuptial agreement.

Defining a divorce from room and board

If you and your spouse have chosen to separate, then your next step will no doubt be to consider the future of your life together in Hackensack. Such is the conundrum that many have brought to our team here at Melinda L. Singer, Esquire. There hopes typically were to enter into a legal separation, to which we informed them that New Jersey technically does not recognize such statuses. Rather, the state allows for a divorce "from room and board." 

Enforcement actions for unpaid child support

People who have been ordered by a court to make child support payments in New Jersey may want to learn about the various ways that the state might enforce such an order. It is also important for them to know that the state has the power to also enforce the requirement to provide health insurance coverage for a child as explained by the New Jersey Department of Human Services.
