Are you planning to file divorce papers in New Jersey?

If you have decided to end your marriage in a New Jersey court, you are likely concerned with numerous issues. Divorce is typically no walk in a park and if children are involved, things may get quite complicated. That does not necessarily mean that every case sparks a knock-down, drag-out courtroom battle, however. There are several support options that can keep stress to a minimum.

If you have a close friend or family member who has already gone through divorce, he or she may be a great source of support as you navigate your own journey. It helps to talk to someone who faced similar issues to those you are currently facing, such as matters of child custody or property division, perhaps even alimony. Ask your friends or relatives which options worked best and which they might recommend you to avoid.

If one of your main goals is to try to avoid going to court altogether, you might want to research divorce mediation as a possible option in your situation. One of the greatest benefits of a mediated divorce is that it is generally less expensive than litigation. Then again, if your spouse is not willing to peacefully discuss the issues you need to resolve in order to achieve a settlement or you believe that he or she is trying to gain the upper hand regarding property division proceedings, litigation may be the best course of action under the circumstances.

Cipriano Law Office, P.C., in New Jersey provides strong support in all aspects of divorce. Whether you are most concerned with valuation of assets, protecting your children's best interests or have business concerns you'd like to discuss, our experienced legal team is fully prepared to make recommendations and act on your behalf if your case goes to court. By requesting a consultation, you can lay the groundwork for the new lifestyle you will share with your children.
