Guiding You Through The Challenges Of Family Law

Any legal issue can be stressful, but legal matters involving your family can be particularly concerning. Family law cases often have the potential to affect not only your finances but also your relationships with your children, spouse or other family members, as well. The strong emotions accompanying family law issues make it difficult to make sound decisions, and the legal complications involved can result in simple judgment errors that have long-term negative consequences. Because so much is on the line, you should always consult with an experienced family law attorney if you are facing any case involving your family.

At Maduabum Law Firm LLC,  we represent clients in divorce and other family law matters in Newark and throughout New Jersey. Our lawyers provide personalized service and dedicated advocacy. We will help you understand the process and make smart decisions that will protect your future and your family.

Common Causes for Divorce

Divorce can often be one of the most emotionally trying times in your life. Whether or not you agree to the divorce, the process can significantly disrupt the lives of you and your family. In addition, there are many steps that you must take and procedures you must follow in order for the court to grant a divorce petition and legally dissolve your marriage.

There are several reasons for which you may file for divorce in New Jersey – some that are based on the “fault” of one party and others that are based on “no-fault.” You must determine which reason applies in your case given the following options:

  • Desertion: One spouse left and has been gone for 12 continuous months or more (fault-based).
  • Cruelty: In the past three months, your spouse has acted in an abusive or violent manner toward you (fault-based).
  • Separation: You and your spouse have been living separately for 18 months or more (no-fault).
  • Irreconcilable differences: For the past six months or more, you and your spouse have been unable to get along, and you see no realistic chance that you will reconcile (no-fault).

In addition to citing the correct grounds for divorce, there are several issues that must be decided before a divorce can be finalized. If you and your spouse cannot agree, the court will have to make the decisions for you, and divorce trials can be contentious and expensive. An experienced divorce attorney will seek to facilitate negotiation, mediation and agreement between spouses, whenever possible, during your divorce case.

Assertive Representation In Property Disputes

One important matter that must be settled is how you and your spouse will divide your property, assets and debts. In New Jersey, the division must be “equitable,” which does not necessarily mean “equal” but does mean “fair.” An attorney can help you with the following property disputes and more:

  • Bank, investment and retirement accounts
  • Furniture and household belongings
  • Any other real estate properties
  • Business interests
  • The family home
  • Motor vehicles
  • Debts

It is important to have an experienced lawyer helping you make sure your property is divided fairly and that you do not lose out on what is rightfully yours.
