A compassionate approach to this sensitive area of the law is essential. Divorce litigation results in lifelong emotional and financial consequences. I realize that each family is unique and understand that the results of divorce litigation are life altering. I advise my clients of their options and help them understand the issues, risks, and costs involved in the divorce litigation or a post-judgment modification.
Advocating for your children through a divorce proceeding can be stressful as well. Visitation rights and schedules, as well as child support determinations are all important variables to consider in divorce litigation. New Jersey uses the ‘income shares’ method of determining child support. This means that the level of support will be based on the combined income of both parents. To determine the amount to be paid in child support, the courts consider several factors including: the child’s needs, each parent’s standard of living, each parent’s assets and income, and the age and health of each parent and all children.
Divorce litigation is not a “one size fits all” construct – it must be tailored to meet the needs of your family. If you are contemplating a divorce, have been served with divorce papers, or would like to discuss your options, please contact me so that I may assist you.
