Divorce has both financial and emotional consequences. In many instances, your emotions can cloud your better judgment, resulting in unnecessary concessions and personal losses that can create additional problems in the future. Whether you a hire an attorney for a contentious divorce, or simply need an advocate to make sure you aren’t overlooking important consideration, having a New Jersey divorce lawyer on your side is always your best option.

Considerations in Divorce

When you get a divorce, there are several considerations that will need to be made. One of the primary considerations is property division. Everything you have purchased during your marriage is considered mutual property. Your divorce settlement will be the final judgment on who gets every contested item. Having a divorce attorney in New Jersey helps ensure you are not overlooking important assets.

Another consideration is debt division. This may seem black and white, but it never is. All debt, including some student loan debt, is considered mutual. No matter what was purchased, if it was purchased during the marriage, you are mutually responsible. Having an attorney helps make the process of debt division more equitable and fair.

In addition to property and debt division, there are considerations such as child custody, alimony, and child support. Your divorce decree is final. Any decisions made by the court can only be modified through an additional lawsuit. To prevent future lawsuits, and to ensure the divorce is fair, you will need an attorney on your side.
