Red Bank Lawyer For New Jersey Divorce Property Settlement

If you are thinking about getting a divorce in New Jersey, there are a few things you need to understand about the laws in this state. The first thing you need to understand is you are not going to leave your spouse with nothing, while you live like the Kardashians. New Jersey is an equitable distribution state, which means all "marital" property is allocated between both parties. Whether the marital property (and debt) is titled only in the name of one party or both has no bearing, and that includes pensions and retirement savings. What matters is when and how the property was acquired.

Attorneys Who Understand How High The Emotional And Financial Stakes Are

If you do not want to get screwed in your divorce, it is important to have a lawyer who will protect you. At the Law Office of Jennifer J. McCaskill, LLC, in Red Bank, we have more than 15 years of experience working with people dealing with divorce and family law issues. When there are disagreements regarding marital and separate property, we provide trained mediation to help resolve them. In the event the matter must go to trial, you will have an experienced litigator on your side in court.

The Court (Usually) Could Not Care Less About Fault

You may be upset and angry, and you may feel as if you would not be filing for divorce if your spouse had not wronged you in some way. But understand this, 9 times out of 10, the Court does not care who is at fault. The very narrow exception is when substantial marital assets were spent to support the affair, all marital property will be divided fairly and equitably between the parties. How "fair and equitable" is determined, though, is up to the parties to work out. And that is why it is important to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
