Using a QDRO to ensure the payment of alimony and child support

Even with an alimony or child support order in place, actually receiving the agreed-upon payments is problematic for many people in New Jersey. Maybe the paying ex-spouse or noncustodial parent loses a job, and the support payments just aren't available. Or maybe he or she chooses not to honor the divorce settlement out of spite. In either case, if you are supposed to receive support payments but aren't, you should be aware of your legal options.

Some things Paul Walker did right in his estate plan

In planning their estates, many New Jersey residents choose to protect their minor children by creating a trust and naming a guardian. A trust can ensure that at some point a minor child receives the funds from the trust, and naming a guardian ensures that a specific person will take guardianship of a minor child in the event that something happens to the parents. A guardianship or conservatorship may also be established if an estate owner becomes incapacitated and unable to handle matters of the estate.
