WHAT IS AN ANNULMENT IN NEW JERSEY?

Annulments are legal alternatives to divorce available to individuals who entered into marriages under illegal or fraudulent circumstances. Annulments are entirely separate from divorces, and they do not include the complexities of division of assets, child custody, child support, alimony, etc. This is because executed annulments create a situation where a previous marriage legally never existed. It is important to understand that this is wholly separate from an annulment granted by a religious institution such as the Catholic Church. 

HOW MUCH WILL MY DIVORCE COST?

Divorce is a difficult time even under the best circumstances. Family dynamics change, you may be moving, your social life will change, parents have their children's happiness to consider, and of course there is the impact on your finances. Amongst all of this, there is the expense of the divorce proceedings themselves. While it is not possible for our Morristown divorce lawyers to give precise figures, we can explain some of the factors which may impact the overall cost of your divorce. 

WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A DIVORCE ATTORNEY

If you and your spouse are on good terms going into a divorce, it can be tempting to go through the divorce process without the advocacy of an experienced matrimonial attorney. For most individuals, this is their first time going through an incredibly complex and impactful legal process, which can carry long term effects to multiple aspects of your life including your children, your owned property, your financial well-being, and much more. 

TYPES OF ALIMONY IN NEW JERSEY

Alimony and spousal support considerations are common for couples going through divorce proceedings. However, alimony can refer to five different types of payments made from on ex spouse to another. It is also worth noting that New Jersey alimony regulations were changed as of September, 2014, directly impacting those who have been divorced since that date. Today, our divorce and family law attorneys will discuss these different types of alimony payments and when each comes into play.
