Mediators cannot pick sides in a divorce mediation

People in New York have many stressful moments throughout their marriages. These stressful situations can lead to fights and disagreements, which sometimes become too much to overcome. These situations may lead to divorces, which generally are just as stressful if not more stressful than the situations that arose during the marriage. Not surprisingly divorce can also lead to many more disagreements and fights as well.

How are businesses divided in a divorce?

Throughout a marriage couples in New York can acquire many different things. These assets can grow in number, value and variety the more a couple earns during the marriage. That is why the asset division portion of high asset divorces can be such a complicated process. Couples with many assets will first have to go through the process of finding all the assets that they may own and then they will have to value those assets, which can be very time consuming as well.

Types of visitation to protect children in custody disputes

Once people in New York become parents they immediately have certain responsibilities whether they like it or not. They must care for their children and provide for their needs. However, some parents take this responsibility more seriously than others. Some parents may also have drug or alcohol addictions or untreated mental health conditions which affect their ability to properly care for their children.

What counts as gross income when determining child support?

Parents in New York need to provide, at the very least, the basic necessities for their children. This includes food, clothing and shelter, but as most parents know there are many other costs that are associated with raising children as well. Therefore, the parents need to earn money in order to pay for everything. There are many different ways that people earn money though. The primary way is through employment, but people also earn money through investments, retirement accounts, social security benefits and other ways as well.

How to have a successful divorce mediation

Many couples will be dealing with difficult issues in a divorce, including child custody determinations, child support, alimony and dividing the couples' assets and debts. During the marriage, all of these issues were shared, but during the divorce process, people quickly realize that dividing one life into two separate lives is not always an easy task.
