There are few events in life more difficult than divorce and family law matters. Conflicting emotions and fears about the future can cloud your judgment and make it difficult to think clearly. Yet the decisions you make now and the way you go about ending your marriage will have a lasting impact on every area of your future including the financial stability and emotional well-being of your family.
The stakes are high and you simply can’t afford not to have the most qualified divorce attorney guiding you through every step of the New Jersey divorce process.
It’s critical that the divorce lawyer you choose has the knowledge and experience to navigate the ever changing and complex nature of family law in NJ.
When the future of your family is on the line you also want an attorney who cares enough to listen and understand the specifics of your particular situation. Because only then can they advise as to the best strategy for achieving the outcome you desire. Every New Jersey divorce begins with the filing of a complaint and ends with a binding divorce agreement. What happens in between is often what makes all the difference. Everyone’s situation and family dynamics are unique and therefore the strategy that may have been best for others may not be the right solution for you.
This is the traditional method of getting a divorce and likely what you are most familiar with. Each party is represented by their own attorney and the process is driven by the courts and the final outcome decided by a judge. Even though many cases are litigated the majority of divorce cases end up in settlement before the final hearing takes place.
Collaborative divorce is a new alternative to the traditional divorce process. In a collaborative divorce the parties work together to negotiate a resolution of all the issues with the help and support of a team of collaborative professionals including each spouse’s respective attorney, financial professionals, mental health professionals, divorce coaches, and child specialists.
Divorce mediation is a process where a neutral third-party, a mediator, manages the discussion and assists the parties in identifying the issues, finding common ground, and reaching an agreement.
