How Our Edgewater Divorce Attorneys Can Help

There are two general types of divorce: contested vs. uncontested. You and your spouse can work together to reach agreement on all areas of divorce, or you have an issue or two that you both cannot agree on. If you can negotiate an agreement on all the issues, your divorce will be considered uncontested. If there is even a single issue you cannot agree on, it is termed “contested”—until those issues are resolved. We will help you by working to try and negotiate a fair settlement agreement between you and your spouse on alimony, child custody, visitation, property and debt division and all other divorce concerns. Many times, even when spouses start disagreeing on the issues, with the help of attorneys and potentially mediation, agreements can be achieved quite efficiently. But if you have an antagonistic relationship with your spouse that makes it impossible to work together towards agreement, or if you are simply too far apart on what you each want to come away with in your divorce, we will skillfully advocate for your interests. Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, our attorneys will counsel you in thinking through your goals for the divorce outcome. We will then develop a strategic plan to most advantageously pursue your objectives.

How Property and Assets Are Divided in Divorce

For high-net-worth individuals with stocks, stock options, complex investments, pensions, businesses, multiple residences and other complicated properties, asset division can be one of the most fraught and anxiety-provoking areas of divorce. If you and your spouse can work out asset division by yourselves and with the help of your attorneys and financial experts—great! If not, as can be the case, the Judge will ultimately do it for you. New Jersey uses the concept of equitable distribution to divide property (and debts). This does not mean a 50/50 split like in common law states. Instead, judges consider the criteria in N.J.S.A 2A:34-23.1 to arrive at fair but not necessarily equal decisions. No matter how your asset division plays out—whether across the negotiating table or in the court—we will work hard to help you pursue a fair distribution while keeping the things most important to you.

How much alimony you may pay and for how long is specific to your situation.

When we represent you, we will advocate on your behalf for a fair decision based on all the facts of your matter.

There are some circumstances in which divorce decisions can be appealed. You cannot appeal simply because you are unhappy with the decision—there must be a legitimate reason for doing so, such as a legal error by the judge. An Edgewater divorce attorney from our firm can advise you whether you may have grounds for an appeal.

Like marital assets, marital debts are divided using equitable distribution in divorce. In general, if the liability was incurred before marriage, you would not be responsible. Also, if debt was incurred after the Complaint for Divorce was filed, you may not be responsible either.  Of course, all of this is dependent upon when and why your spouse incurred the debt. We can counsel you based on the specific set of circumstances applicable to you and your marriage.
