A QDRO could play an important role in New York divorce cases

Once a spouse announced that he or she wanted to end the marriage, it may only have taken a short amount of time before each party started trying to decide how to get what he or she wants from the legal process. There are many aspects to divorce, and property division often causes many individuals to feel the most stress. Understanding marital property, separate property, distribution laws and necessary forms can seem overwhelming.

Steps to divorce-proof a company

Many people dream of one day opening their own business. These entrepreneurs work so hard to attain their goals, but once a marriage falls through, the former spouse takes everything. It is for this reason that Forbes suggests small business owners should absolutely invest in a prenuptial agreement to ensure the company will be safe should the marriage ever dissolve.

When some New York residents got married, they may have felt that their spouses were a little full of themselves. Over the years, that notion may have grown into realizing that they had married complete narcissists.

As these issues grew, the time for divorce came as did making child custody decisions.

While this may seem like a responsible strategy, it may not be the best approach for New York residents going through divorce.
