As New Jersey residents may know, a Facebook profile is being allowed as evidence in a New York custody battle. The father in the case says that his estranged wife's social media page shows that she frequently travels and that he was the main caregiver for the couple's minor child. In response, the mother of the child contends that when the couple separated, she removed her estranged husband from her social media page and that he should not be allowed to use it.
When a couple divorces in New Jersey, it is not uncommon for one spouse to be ordered to pay spousal support to the other spouse. The recipient of such support may feel confident that their needs will be taken care of after the divorce. However, such divorce decrees are not foolproof.
In New Jersey, if you decide to get a divorce, the marital property is divided equally between you and your spouse. Although many assume that this is a 50-50 split, circumstances may warrant giving more property to one spouse over another. Because of this, some spouses attempt to save some of the marital property for themselves and try to hide it from the other spouse. To ensure fair property division, everyone contemplating a divorce should watch out for signs that their spouse is attempting to hide property.
