How Can a Divorce Attorney Help Me?
When seeking legal services related to a divorce, you want to feel confident that your lawyer will work hard to handle your case in order to achieve a desirable outcome for you. While proceeding with a divorce, various aspects of family law overlap one another and can be extremely difficult to understand without a qualified attorney to guide you.
Through experience and hard work, the divorce attorneys at Edens Law Group, LLC are proficient in the various legal areas that encompass the multiple aspects of the divorce process. These particular areas include:
- Mediation: The process in which a mediator facilitates both communication and the process of negotiation between one spouse and the other spouse in order to help them reach a voluntary agreement that is satisfactory to both parties.
- Child custody cases: A legal case in which one or both parents are suing for the legal guardianship of a minor-aged child or, in certain cases, their adult children who have certain emotional or physical needs.
- Spousal support: Also commonly known as alimony, this is monetary support that is paid by one spouse to the other and ordered by the court. This payment can occur over a specified amount of time or forever, depending on the individual circumstances of the divorce case.
- Division of assets: Also known as equitable division, this is a judicial division of both obligations and marital assets between spouses when involved in a divorce case. This may be done through an agreement, through a property settlement, or by a judicial decree which is handed down by a judge. The law in the state of New Jersey stipulates that the division of property is based on equitable distribution. This means that each spouse is generally granted his or her separate property or debt that was brought into the marriage—also included in this category as gifts and inheritances. Property and debt that were acquired during the marriage will be allocated between the two spouses in an effort to reach a fair distribution. The court considers many factors when making its decision regarding property settlement, such as the overall length of the marriage, health, age, each party’s financial situation, and the potential earning capability of each spouse.
- Child support: This is an ongoing payment made from one parent to another parent in an effort to provide financially for the costs associated with raising the child following the end of a marriage or a similar type of relationship.
What Should I Know About Divorce?
Either spouse involved in divorce proceedings may also request that the court issue what are deemed to be temporary orders. These orders may be granted to establish child custody along with visitation rights, award child support payments, restrict the use of property, or order specific bills to be paid by each party. It is important to realize that these orders are only valid and in force until a time when they can be potentially changed by a judge or until a final decree of divorce is issued by the court terminating the marriage.
In your case, many of these aspects of divorce law may play a significant role in determining how your final divorce settlement is resolved, along with the financial agreement that is to be decided. One of the last things you need to worry about is the tedious legal procedures that surround filing for a divorce. Going through a divorce is strenuous, to say the least, and you need an attorney that will labor diligently to protect your legal rights along with your future.
