- Property division: In New Jersey, property is divided according to the laws of equitable distribution. This means that assets and property are split between the spouses in an equal and fair manner. However, this does not always mean 50-50. It is important to note that debts are also divided in the course of dividing property and assets.
- Spousal support: Also sometimes called alimony or spousal maintenance, spousal support is the amount of money that one spouse is ordered to pay to the other during and after the divorce. Though spousal support is not awarded in every case, when it is, the courts consider a variety of factors before determining a set amount, such as length of the marriage, age of the parties, income level of the parties and contributions to the marriage.
- Child support and child custody: It is important that the needs of children be placed at the forefront of any divorce case in which the separating parties have children together. Child support is determined by using statute-set guidelines and formula, while child custody is determined through thorough examination of what it is in the best interests of the children.
We can also handle any post-divorce decree modifications that need to be made to orders that were created in the divorce process.
