Properly securing life insurance during a divorce proceeding ensures that alimony and child support are paid, even upon the death of a former spouse. The peace of mind and financial security it brings are just some of the many benefits of this agreement.

The divorce process in New York centers its focus on the division of assets between spouses and the structure of care for their children. This can be legally enforced through alimony and child support payments. But what about the unforeseen consequences that may occur outside courtroom? What if the paying spouse dies – what happens to the financial support of the surviving spouse and children? We recently addressed this question with clients and families the Queens area, and want to provide some helpful information about ways to maintain your family’s financial security.

Putting the needs of children first is vitally important during a divorce proceeding, but these needs can too often be forgotten when parents’ personal issues and emotions come to the forefront.

There are also too few resources available to parents for properly navigating this difficult time. Fortunately, a new publication released by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) hopes to resolve this issue with helpful information and tips on making informed decisions about family time and childcare. “AAML Child Centered Residential Guidelines” provides knowledge about properly dividing family time, and we want to share this information to help our clients find the best ways to spend quality time with their children.

Getting a divorce in New York can wreak havoc on a person’s credit score, but there are ways to prevent this from happening.

Filing for divorce and undergoing the divorce process can have an effect on everything from a person’s home and family to his or her personal finances. One important impact to understand is what divorce can do to a person’s credit score. A March 2015 press release published by Edmunds.com referenced a study of 526 divorced adults, and it concluded “31 percent suffered a credit score drop following the break-up of their marriage.”

This study’s sobering results were an example of how unwittingly unprepared couples can be when they start to go through the divorce process. So we decided to take a look at ways people can protect and raise their credit scores after a divorce through smart financial decisions.

Important financial arrangements spouses should update after a divorce.

When a couple files for divorce, a great deal of consideration can be devoted to topics like dividing up assets and establishing child custody. These are very important things to consider as they affect each spouse’s lives and those of their families. But what about plans that were made long ago to go into effect when one spouse dies? A recent court case on this topic encouraged our office to shed more light on the subject of dealing with end of life issues and divorce.
