Resolving disputes creatively

What are cost of living adjustments to child support?

Things can become more expensive over time. This is due to a number of factors, but at the end of the day, what may have cost $5 a few years ago now may cost $7 now. While that does not seem like a very big change by itself, that small amount can add up quickly when everything one buys is a dollar or two more expensive. Parents especially realize this as they are paying for everything for their children. It may be even more true for a parent who is receiving child support from the other parent.

How an inheritance can become marital property

When people in New York are married, they begin to share a life "for better and for worse." This sharing occurs whether the couple realizes it or not. Almost all assets earned during the marriage become marital property, regardless of who earns the money or purchases a particular asset or even whose name is on the title. This is true for debts as well, any debt incurred by one person is incurred by the couple whether they realize it or not. However, there are some exceptions to this rule.

What can one do if the other parent violates a custody order?

There are many parents in New York who have custody and visitation orders. These orders can be in place for many years and things change over the years. Everyone also has different types of relationships with the other parent. Some can work well together, and when different issues arise they can work through it to do what is best for the children. Others cannot work together, and refuse to agree to adjustments when they are needed from time to time, but still follow the order.

Divorce mediation can be useful in a high conflict divorce

When people are going through a divorce, generally there is some level of conflict and negative emotions. People do not get divorced when things are going well and each person is happy. They occur when people are upset with each other and things are not going smoothly. Divorces are also emotional times for the people involved, as they used to love the other person and also may have children. Splitting up a family like this is never easy, even in situations when it may be best in the long run.
