How Our Morristown Divorce Attorney Can Help You

Getting divorced is complicated—as you know if you are experiencing it. Especially when you are a high earner with complex property and assets. You want to keep what is yours, but your spouse probably wants what’s hers and yours. And you certainly want to ensure your children have the financial support they need for their day-to-day lives, extracurricular activities, and college education.  With our help, we will work through these juxtaposed dynamics to ensure that the outcome is as fair and reasonable as possible within the confines of the law.

Divorce Lawyer for Morristown Answers FAQs

Here are answers addressing some of the most frequent questions we get about New Jersey divorce.

New Jersey uses equitable distribution to divide assets and debts, which does not necessarily mean a 50/50 split. Rather, a judge will consider all the criteria in N.J.S.A 2A:34-23.1 to arrive at a fair decision. We will advocate for you to keep what is most important to you during this process.

No—neither spouse is automatically entitled to the family home. Who gets it depends on the situation. If it is important to you to keep the home, you may be able to negotiate that she gets the vacation house or other assets of equivalent value. If it’s left to the court to decide, they will consider the equitable distribution factors.

In an ideal situation, you will be able to arrive at a settlement agreement with your spouse with the assistance of attorneys and mediators. If you can come together on all the issues, your divorce will not go to before the Court, and your issues will not be aired publicly. Our attorneys work hard to encourage court out-of-court settlements using the myriad of maneuvers and alternative dispute resolution methods they are experienced in.

Like so many questions about divorce—the answer is that it depends on your unique circumstances. The level of disagreement on the issues will extend the length of time. If your case goes to trial because you can’t come to agreement, it will take longer. If you have complex marital assets and property that must be valued, that will likely further influence how long it takes. We will seek to resolve your divorce as quickly and smoothly as possible for your situation.
