Avoid these three financial landmines during divorce

Divorce is difficult enough when you only look at the emotional side. Tearing a family apart is never easy on the spouses' feelings or on the children's. However, ending a marriage can be equally challenging on the financial side. It often means trying to maintain the same standard of living on just one income instead of two. It can also lead to a wide array of other money-related worries -- which makes it no surprise that divorce and bankruptcy often go hand in hand.

Can you get custody of your kids in an emergency?

The holiday season is supposed to be a time of joy with family and friends. Unfortunately, many families aren't experiencing "peace on earth" right now. When one parent is abusive, neglectful or otherwise unable to provide appropriate care for his or her children, it can turn the holidays into one of the most stressful and dangerous times of the year.

Can New York force parents to raise their children in a certain religion?

In child custody disputes and other parenting matters, the New York courts have considerable authority. They can decide that a certain parenting time arrangement is not in the child's best interests. They can decide whether or not a father can move out of state with his children. They can even decide that an abusive mother should not be allowed to spend time with her children at all.

Dividing a pension during divorce? Don't get slammed with taxes

In New York, "marital property" encompasses far more than just the family house, the cars and the china dishes you received as a wedding present. It includes nearly all assets that were accumulated during the marriage - which means that pensions and retirement accounts are fair game in the property division process.
