The ways a prenuptial agreement can be found invalid

As we have discussed previously on this blog, deciding to get married is much more than an emotional decision, as it can also have significant financial ramifications. In essence, those who choose to get married are choosing to split all property and put themselves in a position where they may have to pay child support and/or alimony. Of course, many, but not all, of these issues can be settled well beforehand, even prior to the marriage actually occurring. The best way to do this is to enter into a prenuptial agreement.

Family dynamics can change over time, and no two families are exactly alike. Therefore, when family law issues arise, whether through divorce or ending a non-marital relationship, the parties to the case need an individualized approach. When the court makes determinations on important family law issues, such as child custody, child support, property division, and alimony, it will turn to the specific facts of each case. Therefore, it is critically important for those who are entering this arena to know how to use the facts and the law to their advantage.

The same holds true for all child custody and child support issues. Relocation can be a contentious issue where careers and relationships can be put at risk, and custody modification battles can leave parents fighting over what they believe is in their child's best interest.

How to respond to a divorce petition

Being served with a divorce petition can have any number of effects on an individual. For some, the act is expected and perhaps even welcomed. Others, though, may find themselves shocked that their spouse has filed for divorce. Regardless of how an individual feels, he or she needs to be prepared for what comes next. Although most people are familiar with at least the basics of family law issues, such as property division and child custody, those issues only surface after some sort of response is made to the initial petition.

Common reasons for the end of a marriage

Although divorce can arise out of any number of circumstances, there are a few common themes. One of the most common reasons for divorce, for example, is infidelity. Although many think of this as meaning a physical relationship, infidelity can involve emotional relationships, too. Individuals can also spark up online relationships via social media that leave the other spouse feeling like they are being cheated on.
