Divorce

Sometimes, spouses have irreconcilable differences and can no longer stay in a marriage. The process of divorce can be a complicated and lengthy procedure based on how contested the separation may be. Divorce can be a quick procedure or a long, emotionally painful event. In New Jersey, courts have mandated that divorce proceedings should not take longer than 12 months from the Complaint of Divorce. Of course, there are exceptions. Most cases should be completed in less than 12 months. More

Child Custody and Visitation

In divorce, separation, and other family law matters, the custody and visitation rights for minor children are major elements the courts, parents, and lawyers must consider. The goal is to work for the child’s best interests and agree on a positive custody and parenting arrangement. When both parents have frequent and continuing access to the child, it is believed that the child’s best interests are achieved, unless one or both parents would negatively affect a child’s healthy development, as in domestic violence or drug-related cases. More

Child Support

Parents are legally obligated to support their children under the age of 19 and sometimes beyond that if the child attends college. In times of divorce, separation, or other legal matters, the courts have the authority to order parents to financially support their children. Each state has guidelines that determine what is fair to both the parents and the children. The determination of a fair child support agreement is a complicated process and many factors will be considered. They are mostly predictable and the guidelines are often presumed to be fair and just. More

Alimony

When parties go through the process of divorce, alimony, or spousal support, is often a hot topic. Spousal support is not always justified depending on the circumstances of the marriage. Divorcing couples should consider what type of spousal support is appropriate for their situation. The four types of alimony are permanent, limited duration, rehabilitative, and reimbursement. More

Property Distribution

When filing for divorce, one of the major factors both parties consider is property distribution. Both believe they are entitled to a certain split of all assets, which has the potential to be contested and heated. It is important to consider the factors the court will examine when distributing assets. New Jersey is an equitable distribution state and assets will be divided in an equitable fashion. This does not always mean equally, but rather, what is fair. Though the court will decide on the case, it encourages the parties to come to an agreement, with or without a mediator. More
