Division of Assets Attorneys Morris County NJ
Morristown Equitable Distribution of Asset 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. We offer experienced and quality family lawyers, as many of them have been nominated to the Super Lawyers / Super Lawyer Rising Star lists. Be sure to check out our team’s nominations in the section below.
Dividing a Marriage’s Assets Fairly
In equitable distribution states such as New Jersey, 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.
