Important Considerations When Deciding To Remarry

After a divorce, many people feel they still have a lot of life left to live. It's not long before they gradually warm to the idea of starting over and getting remarried.

And while there is no legal limitation on remarrying in New York, there are many factors to consider before moving forward with that plan ? especially if children from a previous marriage, or more than one, could be involved.

I am family law attorney Robert G. Smith. At my Robert G. Smith, PLLC, law firm in New York City, I consistently provide sound, reliable legal counsel for every dimension of the divorce event.

After successfully serving the needs of people just like you during my more than 40 years of practice as a lawyer, I know how many of your potential choices in a blended family situation will likely play out in the long-term. I can help you see the financial and personal consequences of choices you face, and to reach the best possible outcome for you and your family.

Making You Aware Of Important Financial And Privacy Considerations

Here are just a few of the factors you should be thinking about, relative to remarriage and blended families:

  • Is your new spouse's income tax return "off limits"?
  • Is your new spouse combining income with you?
  • How is the standard of living of your children going to be affected?
  • What access will your new spouse have to the children?
  • Will your former spouse approve of your new spouse as a stepparent?

Remarriage situations can be delicate and complex. I know how to tackle the obvious pitfalls and proactively anticipate any others on the horizon.
