Divorce in New Jersey
Divorce in New Jersey must resolve all issues relevant to the breakup of the family.
These issues include:
- How to divide marital property and debt on an “equitable distribution” basis which may or may not be an even split. This issue can be difficult when complex financial holdings are in play such as family-owned businesses, pensions, retirement accounts, professional practices, and other complicated assets.
- Alimony. Courts may or may not award alimony based on a review of many circumstantial factors.
- Child custody. This issue requires creating parenting plans and assigning parental responsibilities in the care of children based on the child’s best interests.
- Child support. Divorced parents are required to provide financial support for their children to ensure their welfare when households split.
New Jersey provides a no-fault divorce option that can speed up the divorce process. This option is based on an 18-month separation prior to the divorce or where you and your spouse have “irreconcilable differences” that cannot be resolved. However, if you and your spouse cannot agree on a marital settlement agreement of any of the issues stated above, a family court judge will make a ruling on those issues so that a final divorce decree can be granted.
New Jersey also provides a divorce process based on diverse types of “fault.” In these cases, you must prove the marital misconduct of your spouse in court to obtain a divorce.
We also represent you in post-divorce issues that arise after your divorce court orders and judgments have been issued. These can involve the modification or enforcement of custody and support orders.
At Menar & Menar, Attorneys at Law, we will undertake all issues and necessary actions on your behalf to help you secure your goals and best interests; this includes the wellbeing of your children and stability of your financial future.
