How Is My Life Going To Change After My Divorce?
Before you take steps to file for divorce or take a stand on certain issues in the divorce process, consider the implications of these decisions. For many people, the emotional nature of trouble at home leads to hasty, impulsive decisions that do not take into account important issues, such as:
- Living arrangements during divorce proceedings
- Determining what is “fair” and “equitable” in asset division negotiations
- Financial security, child custody and support
- Tax implications of spousal support
- Relocation after a divorce and modifications to Orders
- Safety, domestic abuse, and restraining orders
- Legal grounds for divorce
Grounds for Divorce and Seeking a Favorable Resolution
In New Jersey, the Complaint and Judgment for Divorce can only be granted if the relationship involves one of the Statute’s legal grounds for divorce. Typically, divorces are filed on grounds of irreconcilable differences or separation of at least 18 or more consecutive months. Other grounds include instances of adultery, desertion, cruelty, substance abuse, mental illness and deviant sexual conduct.
In most cases, couples come to an agreement that a divorce should take place, but that does not mean that the divorce is uncontested. Many other decisions must be worked out, and they can either spur lengthy legal battles or negotiable settlements through mediation.
Litigation and Courtroom Proceedings
Some cases inevitably go to court. These typically involve issues of safety or aggressive custody battles spurred from unjust accusations or unconscionable actions. If this describes your situation, our divorce lawyers have the experience necessary to uphold your rights before a judge.
Negotiation of Settlements and Mediation
Even in emotionally charged cases, our clients can find a way to negotiate divorce agreements. This is particularly important when children are involved. Using mediation as a tool for dispute resolution gives our clients more control over the outcome and facilitates a more amicable relationship that can last for years after the initial stress has subsided.
We can advise you on what strategies to use to resolve your case in your best interests and those of your loved ones.
