Eatontown Divorce Attorney

Experienced Eatontown Divorce Attorney

Divorce can be a very complicated and confusing process, especially when marital assets and children are involved. If you are thinking about obtaining a divorce or have already begun the process, it is essential that you have experienced Eatontown NJ divorce attorney assisting you with your case early on. We can help you to explore all of your legal options, ensuring that you receive any monetary benefits under the law.

What Legal Options Are Available to Me?

Under New Jersey law, divorce may be contested or uncontested. In addition to divorce, you can pursue other options under certain circumstances, such as legal separation or annulment. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and divorce mediation are also available to resolve divorce and separation issues quickly and efficiently – and without court intervention. Eatontown divorce lawyers can analyze the facts and circumstances of your individual case. They can also help you to determine what’s best for you.

What Benefits Can I Receive Under New Jersey Law?

If you are in the process of filing for divorce in New Jersey, you may be able to receive alimony. Alimony, also known as spousal support, allows a recipient spouse to maintain the same standard of living that he or she maintained during the marriage. In general, New Jersey courts do not utilize a formula to determine the amount and/or duration of alimony payments. Rather, courts consider a variety of factors, including:

  • age and health of the spouses
  • spouses’ respective incomes
  • spouses’ educational levels and careers
  • each spouse’s ability to be (or to become) independent and self-sufficient

In order to determine whether you’re eligible for alimony, speak to New Jersey divorce attorneys.

How Is Marital Property Distributed in a New Jersey Divorce Case?

In New Jersey divorce cases, spouses are entitled to an equitable share of all property obtained over the course of a marriage. The most common types of marital assets include:

  • homes
  • vehicles
  • income
  • stocks
  • bonds
  • pensions

New Jersey is an equitable distribution state. This means that each spouse is entitled to a ‘fair’ distribution of the marital property. This does not necessarily mean that you will divide the property 50/50. Rather, courts utilize a non-exclusive list of factors in reaching decisions about marital property distribution. In most cases, spouses are better off reaching an agreement about property distribution themselves. This agreement is formalized into a marital settlement agreement and is binding on both parties. The agreement allows the spouses to clear up any marital property disputes themselves. And it allows them to do so without directly involving the courts in the process.

What Are Some Legal Issues I Might Face Following a Divorce or Separation?

In some cases, once the spouses enter into a marital settlement agreement (or, alternatively, once the court decides the disputed issues), circumstances change. The standard for modifying or terminating spousal support, child support, or marital property distribution is “material change in circumstances.” If a court decides that a material change in circumstances has occurred, it may modify a previously entered order. It is also important to note that the court may hold you in contempt or give you other penalties if you:

  • do not follow a court order or
  • violate a marital settlement agreement
