Aisha Tyler's amicable divorce settlement

New Jersey residents who are ending their marriage and have a lot of marital assets to divide might look to the case of Aisha Tyler's divorce settlement as a way to reach an agreement with an ex-spouse without court coercion. The television and movie personality reached a settlement agreement with her ex-husband that both found fair and just.

Errors to avoid in a custody hearing

A New Jersey parent who is facing a child custody hearing may be frustrated with the other parent, but it is important to not show frustration in court. A parent who appears angry or bitter may also look like a parent who is unwilling to cooperate with the other parent, and this could result in that other parent getting custody. Parents should also avoid trying to speak for their children to convince the judge that they are the best choice as the custodial parent. Older children are often allowed to express their preferences if they wish, but a parent should not attempt to make the other parent look bad by arguing that their child needs them more.
