Why do I need an attorney for a contested divorce?

Couples have a lot at stake in contested divorces, especially if they have not drafted a prenuptial agreement or any other type of marital agreement. In many cases, equitable distribution, wherein the court will determine how marital assets will be divided between each spouse, child custody, child support, and alimony will all come into play. Without a seasoned attorney on your side, you may receive an unfavorable and, ultimately, unfair divorce judgment or agreement. Our firm is ready to fight for what is rightfully yours through every step of the legal process ahead.

Do I need an attorney for an uncontested divorce?

Even if you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce and are in an uncontested divorce, you will still benefit from hiring a knowledgeable New Jersey divorce attorney who can work to ensure that all legalities are accurately and properly addressed so that your divorce can continue on as smoothly as possible. You should also understand that in many cases, uncontested divorces can quickly turn into contested divorces when certain issues arise. It is always best to have an experienced attorney on your side who can respond and proceed to effectively fight for your best interests.
