Divorce, property division could negatively affect businesses

New York business owners know that even a seemingly small issue could cause considerable problems within a company. Even personal issues among co-owners or business partners could negatively impact the business. In particular, when a person goes through divorce and property division proceedings, business assets and interests could be at risk.

Using "nuptials" to deter cheating

One way that some couples try to deter one or both of them from cheating is the use of a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement. For example, a prenuptial might state that Spouse A is due $200,000 if Spouse B cheats and the marriage has to end. If there is no such stipulation in a prenuptial, a couple could decide to write a postnuptial agreement. This can be especially common if one spouse does cheat during the marriage.

Fear of embarrassment may have parties delaying divorce

Deciding on the best time to end a marriage is no easy task. Many New York residents have different reasons for choosing the timing of their divorce filings. However, certain fears may be keeping individuals together longer than they perhaps should be or want to be. Rather than attempting to move toward a happier future, some parties may let feelings of possible fear and embarrassment hold them back.

Emotional abuse may have New York residents considering divorce

When a person is in an abusive relationship, he or she may feel trapped. Unfortunately, many individuals have a difficult time escaping abuse, and finding the best way to do so can prove tricky. In some cases, New York residents may consider filing for divorce in order to remove themselves from the hostile environment.

Retirement accounts need extra attention during property division

The time has come to inventory assets and work toward finding the best possible outcomes for dividing those assets in divorce. Many New York residents have likely dreaded this part of the legal process, but property division is usually necessary when marital relationships end. Over the years, numerous items and accounts were likely accumulated, and knowing how to divvy up those assets may not always be easy.

Should New York parents consider co-parenting for child custody?

Nothing may have come more easily to New York parents than loving their children. From the moment they were born, the kids likely became the center point of their parents' lives. Now that they are going through divorce, however, those parents may feel a sense of worry when it comes to finding the best child custody terms.
