New Jersey Divorce Lawyers
The legal process of dividing marital property varies from state to state. In New Jersey, courts split marital property under "equitable distribution" standards. This does not necessarily mean equal in the sense of 50/50, but a fair division based on the facts of the marriage.
The family law firm of Laufer Dalena Cadicina Jensen & Boyd is one of the most established law firms in northern New Jersey. Our Morristown division of assets lawyers are committed to excellence, which means working hard for a property division result that is in our clients' best interests.
Dividing the Pie Fairly
In equitable distribution states, there is quite a bit of room for an experienced attorney to work to enhance a divorcing individual's retained assets. There are two common ways to resolve property division disputes:
- Litigation. Divorce courts look at 11 criteria when making decisions regarding property division. At Laufer Dalena Cadicina Jensen & Boyd, we can ensure that 1) all valuable information advantageous to your case is presented to the court, and that 2) you have an advocate in the courts throughout your property division proceedings.
- Mediation and arbitration. Alternative dispute resolution can save you time and money, reduce conflict, protect your privacy and give you greater control over the results. Our family law attorney team includes numerous certified divorce mediators.
Our Morristown division of assets lawyers are highly knowledgeable, experienced and skilled in managing marital property litigation and settlements. Yet, asset division can become difficult when numerous bank accounts, retirement accounts, overseas accounts, royalties, licenses, family businesses, inheritances and other complex assets are involved. Therefore, we work closely with forensic accountants and other experts to protect your interests.
