Family law sees more prenuptial agreements among millennials

Marriage is slowly changing as the years progress. One major difference that many New Jersey residents may have noticed is that couples are getting married later in life. A few years ago, couples were getting married in their early 20s, or even their late teens in some cases, but now, couples, especially millennials, are getting married in their 30s. As a result of these later marriages, many family law attorneys are seeing more prenuptial agreements.

Family law concerns re breastfeeding and child custody

Parents going through a divorce are often worried about how the divorce will affect their children, especially when the children are very young. New Jersey mothers who are still breastfeeding may be concerned about how custody of the children will be handled. In many family law cases, things like this may be taken into consideration when determining custody. 

Family adopts twins to help dying mother

Families adopt children for many different reasons. A family in New Jersey might choose to adopt because they are unable to have their own children, while another family across the nation might adopt simply because they want to expand their family. No matter the reason, a family law attorney can help families to greet their newest additions as quickly as possible. One family chose to adopt after losing one of their own children to illness as well as to help a dying mother pregnant with twins.

When family law becomes hostile

Movies have a way of sensationalizing any event, both good and bad. Some New Jersey residents may have seen a movie where divorcing individuals struggle to find "dirt" on one another in order to gain the upper hand. However, it can cause a wide variety of problems people choose to use these methods in real family law cases. In one case a federal lawsuit was filed against local police after they helped a husband find information on his wife during their divorce. 

How family law can affect debt

As many New Jersey residents may already know, making the decision to end a marriage can be very difficult. Family law can be a great source of stress, and it can also be emotionally draining for all of the people involved. Even though separating couples may have a general idea of how the divorce is supposed to proceed, some of them are still taken by surprise when they begin dividing the debts as well as the assets. 

Family law allows father and son to keep siblings together

It can sometimes be difficult for siblings who are up for adoption or who are in the foster care system to remain together, as many New Jersey residents may know. This is especially true for families with a large number of siblings. A father and his son recently decided to seek help from a family law attorney in an effort to keep a group of nine siblings together. 

Family law: Film stars Rebecca Gayheart, Eric Dane to divorce

There are many reasons that couples give when they decide to divorce. Celebrity marriages, in particular, are notorious for ending in dramatic fashion. However, some New Jersey residents and others who are not familiar with family law might be surprised to find that many marriages, including a number of celebrity marriages, end for what seems to be no specific reason. 

Briana Renee files family law suit against husband

New Jersey residents know that the lives of celebrities are often exaggerated to extremes. However, there are times where such exaggerations are not necessary. Briana Renee of Little Women: LA has recently filed a family law suit against her husband, Matt Grundhoffer. In this suit, she is seeking not only a divorce but also spousal and child support. 

Deployed soldier's family law case takes to social media

There are military families in every state, including New Jersey, that are familiar with the struggles associated with raising children while one parent is deployed overseas. These families don't always get to spend every holiday and birthday together, but many try to make the time they do have together count. Unfortunately, there are a number of soldiers who have run into family law problems while they are deployed. Some have had their spouses file for divorce, and others have lost custody of their children. One soldier and his wife have taken their child custody case to social media hoping to find help.

Single men and family law

It is a slowly growing trend across the nation, including New Jersey, for single men to adopt children. Most attorneys who have experience in family law know that it is more common for married couples to adopt, but it is not unheard of for an unmarried person to adopt as well. One teacher has chosen to adopt a ten-year-old boy who had previously been bounced between multiple foster homes.
