Traits that may lead to the end of a marriage

There are several factors that may influence whether or not an individual gets a divorce. For example, New York residents who see their parents get divorced may be more likely to do so themselves. However, there is a debate as to whether that is a result of nature or nurture. What a person looks like may also play a role in whether or not he or she is going to get divorced.

How to react if a spouse is acting poorly in a divorce

There are many actions that may be frowned upon during a New York divorce proceeding. For example, hiding assets is something that a judge may not like to hear about. It may also be underhanded to share a spouse's private information with friends or other family members without that person's permission. Fortunately, there are things that a person can do to minimize the effects of those actions.

Accounting for money taken from a joint account

If a New York spouse took money out of a joint account and put it into another account in his or her name only, the money may still be considered marital property. Even if that were not the case, a judge would likely not let the person keep all of that money. However, it may mean that the person is looking to get a divorce or is otherwise not invested in the marriage.

How social media can harm you during divorce

It is amazing how social media has changed the way people communicate and share information about themselves. Five years ago, only college students and teenagers had a Facebook page. Now, Fortune 500 corporations, start-up companies and octogenarians have Facebook pages.  While social media makes for interesting interactions, it could also lead to serious problems for people going through contested child custody matters.

Ways to make an executor's task easier, more efficient

Picking the right person to handle their affairs after death is one of the most important things New York residents can do during the estate planning process. Fulfilling the duties of an executor is something a person might not want to do, since it brings home the finality of a friend's or loved one's death.
