Property Settlement Attorneys Morris County, NJ
Property Settlement Lawyers Serving Clients Across Chatham, Chester, Parsippany, Randolph and the greater Morris County area
Some 95 percent of all divorce cases settle before trial. A settled case means that you and your spouse were able to negotiate an agreement about all facets of your divorce, including custody, support, and property division. A settled case also means giving up your right to a trial. Therefore, it is vital to ensure that your legal rights are protected throughout settlement negotiations and any agreement reached is in your best interests.
The Morristown property settlement attorneys at Laufer Dalena Cadicina Jensen & Boyd can do just that. We have extensive experience representing clients during property settlement negotiations and mediation. In fact, members of our attorney team are court-approved economic mediators and Morris County Early Settlement Program panelists. We know what is at stake and we will use all of the tools available to us to protect your rights.
What Is a Property Settlement Agreement?
A property settlement agreement does not only involve division of property. It is the entire written agreement reached by divorcing spouses and it deals with all aspects of divorce, including: child custody and parenting time, spousal support and child support, division of marital property, and any other divorce issues. It is the document which will determine your financial and parental future following your divorce, and should not be decided without the help of an experienced Morris County divorce attorney or mediator, even when you and your spouse are amicable and open to communicating and making compromises.
How is a Morris County Property Settlement Agreement Decided?
When spouses agree, or are willing to communicate and compromise on, the issues in their divorce like child custody, child support, spousal support, and alimony, developing a property settlement agreement can be expedited. Whether through mediation, collaboration, or informal negotiations between the parties and their Morris County property settlement agreement lawyers, it is possible to peaceably resolve these issues without courtroom litigation.
On the other hand, divorcing couples aren’t always open to compromise or rational or peaceable discussion, and litigation may be necessary in order to secure a property settlement agreement that properly accounts for your specific needs and interests.
Whatever your case may be, it is always critical to retain the counsel of an experienced Chatham divorce lawyer during this process. Your divorce attorney can advise when certain compromises may not financially be in your favor but will lead to an expedited settlement, or when the terms of your divorce settlement are just plain unfair to you and should not be agreed to, and how to best secure the settlement that suits your specific needs in any situation, whether those needs be a financially favorable settlement or a settlement which is fair but expedited.
