Real estate mogul divorcing from his wife of 12 years

Many marriages in New York end in divorce each year. The length of the marriage as well as the circumstances of the marriage vary greatly though. Some couples have children while others do not, or the children are adults when the couple divorces. Some own real property and others do not. Some have investment accounts and others do not. Some also own businesses while others do not. Then there are marriages that have a combination of some of the things listed and not others.

Grandparents rights for visitation and custody of grandchildren

Family dynamics vary from family to family in New York. Sometimes two parents are married and raise their children together, sometimes parents are not married, but still raise their children together. Other times parents are not together or are divorced and have child custody arrangements. Sometimes a single parent raises the child because the other parent has passed away or was never in the child's life. Other times grandparents or other relatives raise the children because both parents are unable or unwilling to do so.

Parents must pay for health insurance separate from child support

Children in New York have many needs and parents are expected to pay for these needs while their children are in their care. These needs include food, shelter and clothing, but children also have health needs as well. They may need to go to the doctor for physicals and other routine procedures. Sometimes they unfortunately need more than that done and may require surgeries and other procedures which can be very costly for the family. However, these are costs that the parents must pay for as well.

Collaborative divorce can be faster and cheaper than litigation

When people in New York go through the divorce process, they generally have different emotions. There could be sadness, anger, regret, anxiety about the future and other emotions as well. While going through these emotions the people involved also need to make some very important decisions as the parties go through the divorce process. They must separate one shared life into two separate lives and that is not always an easy process, especially when the couple has children they will continue to raise.

How 401(k) accounts are divided in a divorce

Throughout a marriage in New York a couple may acquire many different assets. The longer the couple is married, the more assets they can acquire. The assets can come in many different forms as well. The couple may have multiple properties, have large retirement accounts, investment accounts, vehicles, collectables, businesses and other assets. If the couple divorces, the assets that the couple acquires during the marriage will need to be divided.
