Using divorce mediation to equitably divide assets in a divorce

Over time couples in New York tend to acquire more and more assets. These assets could just be various household goods, tools and other stuff that ends up in storage in garages and basements. Couples also acquire and grow more valuable assets, such as bank accounts, retirement accounts, investment accounts, collectibles and other valuable monetary assets. The more assets a couple acquires during the marriage, the more it can make dividing these assets more difficult if they divorce.

What to expect at a child custody hearing

One of the duties of parents in New York is to make decisions regarding their children's well-being. When the children are younger, this includes making decisions about what they are going to eat and wear each day. While some of these types of daily decisions will change as the children get older, there are certain decisions that parents must make no matter how old the children are at the time.

Brittany Spears' ex-husband seeking to increase her child support

Brittany Spears has been in the spotlight for much of her life and many people in New York know that she was married to Kevin Federline for a few years. The couple had two children together and when they divorced Spears was ordered to pay Federline $20,000 a month for child support. Federline recently filed to increase that child support obligation. He states that he is earning less now and he believes she is making more. Spears was recently subpoenaed by Federline to attend a deposition to discuss her finances.

How can you find hidden assets in a divorce?

While people in New York are married, they may share everything whether they realize it or not. For the most part, it does not matter which spouse earned the income, paid the bills, purchased various assets, which name the bank accounts were in or who incurred debts. So, if the couple divorces, they will split all marital assets no matter which spouse actual owns the assets in name. This can become a contentious issue in divorces, especially in high asset divorces when there are many assets to argue over.
