Getting through a high-asset divorce

Some married couples in White Plains who decide to divorce might be surprised at exactly how much value they have in their marital assets. Owning a home, multiple vehicles, retirement accounts, savings accounts, stocks, possibly a business and perhaps other luxury items such as a vacation home, a boat, artwork or jewelry can add up. In fact, many people may not even realize until they decide to end their marriage that they are facing a high-asset divorce.

What are the consequences for failing to pay child support?

Sometimes, even if a parent in New York has been paying child support on time and in full for years, something happens in life that keeps the parent from being able to pay. Other times, a parent shirks responsibilities towards the child and purposely doesn't pay child support. Regardless of the circumstances, however, if a parent fails to pay child support, there are consequences.

Finalizing a divorce if a full agreement is reached in mediation

Divorces in New York are oftentimes stressful situations for a family. It is not easy to split up a person's life and oftentimes it is emotional and the couple can be upset with each other. This can make coming to agreements difficult, and there are many issues that a couple must discuss during a divorce. If the couple has children, child custody, parenting time and child support will be issues. All couples must divide assets and debts, and spousal support may be an issue as well.

Can a custodial parent relocate with a child?

There are many parents in New York who are divorced. However, as they know just because you are no longer married, they are still parents. This means that, in most situations, both parents will continue to be involved in the children's lives and see the children. However, the relationship is now governed by a child custody order. These orders state which parent will be making decisions for the child and also generally set a parenting time schedule for the parents.
