KNOWLEDGEABLE ADVISERS GUIDE SPOUSES THROUGH THE DIVORCE PROCESS

If you have decided to end your marriage, our firm’s family law attorneys can counsel you regarding relevant issues such as:

  • Grounds – New Jersey spouses can file for divorce on a no-fault basis or by alleging marital misconduct such as adultery or desertion.  If you prefer to dissolve your marriage without proving fault, you can demonstrate that irreconcilable differences exist or that you have been living separately for at least 18 months.  Our lawyers can explain the advantages of each option.
  • Collaborative Divorce or Mediation – Working together to complete a divorce can sharply reduce the time, expense and stress associated with the process.  By streamlining discovery and bypassing litigation tactic and directly addressing key concerns, we can help preserve your well-being and limit expenses and hardship while you start a new chapter.
  • Same-sex divorce – Presently, same-sex marriages are subject to the same provisions as opposite-sex unions.  We have handled several of these cases.  Resolutions includes but is not limited to issues of support, alimony, simple and complex division of property, custody, tax issues and insurance.

We handle each aspect of divorce law, including the creation of prenuptial agreements to avert potential disputes if the marriage ends.  In a complimentary half hour consultation, we will give you the information you need to be informed and move ahead confidently.

COMPASSIONATE WHIPPANY LAWYERS HANDLE CHILD CUSTODY ARRANGEMENTS

When determining whether parents should have sole or joint custody of their children, Courts seek to identify what is in the best interests of the child.  In most cases, it is best for parents to find common ground when it comes to questions of legal authority, residence, and visitation.  If that is not possible, we make a detailed evaluation of the child’s needs and preferences.  Judges look at factors such as parental fitness, safety, and educational opportunities when rendering a decision.  If one parent is awarded primary residential custody, we can prepare an authoritative visitation agreement that addresses matters such as holidays and transportation.

EXPERIENCED COUNSELORS USE MEDIATION TO RESOLVE DIVORCE DISPUTES

In many cases, mediation is a useful means of resolving disputes between divorcing couples.  As a certified New Jersey mediator, Tanya Helfand knows that proper guidance can bridge the gap even when the parties seem far apart.  We help clients reach fair agreements on issues such as alimony, custody, and property division while greatly reducing the time and cost involved.

SKILLFUL ADVOCATES WORK TO ESTABLISH FAIR PROPERTY DIVISION TERMS

Under State law, assets acquired by the spouses during a marriage are allocated according to the principle of equitable distribution.  This type of property division means that if the parties cannot agree on how to split their assets, the Judge determines what is fair under the circumstances; although this does not always result in even shares.  We conduct a thorough review to present the strongest possible argument to the Court of a fair division of assets.
