Divorce and retirement accounts

In recent years, there has been a shift in the age at which many individuals choose to marry. In New York City, many career-driven residents tend to marry later in life. These individuals typically bring more personal assets and wealth to a marriage. In cases where a couple subsequently decides to divorce, the division of assets can be complex and contentious.

New York divorce and real property: there's more to this story

When deciding how to divide the marital property during the divorce, there are some assets that while emotionally may be hard to part with are a little easier in application to split.

Postnuptial agreements good option to solve marital strife

There's a saying that money can't buy you love. While definitely true, there is no doubt that for millions of married couples, money is a major source of marital conflict.

When it comes to a high asset divorce here in New York or, really, anywhere in the country, the spouses who are splitting need to be prepared for a complicated process. This does not mean that the spouses will be or are upset with each other (though that is an inherent quality of divorce); it is merely something to realize and expect.

Poll shows increase in infidelity among married women

Couples choose to divorce for a variety of reasons. Spouses grow apart, have differing opinions on important life matters or develop dependence and addiction issues.

Lack of prenuptial agreement key factor in billionaire divorce

While any divorce can be complex and contentious, those involving couples of considerable wealth are often more so.

Study suggests children under age five most impacted by divorce

When a couple makes the decision to divorce, there are a number of factors that must be sorted out and taken into consideration.
