Ocean County Divorce Lawyers

A divorce in Ocean County, or anywhere in New Jersey, is nothing more than a process of dividing up assets and liabilities that are subject to equitable distribution once a marriage has concluded. Regardless if you are the wife or the husband in the relationship, the goal of the courts is to make sure that there is a reasonable and equal division of all the assets and debts acquired during the marriage. This is done by identifying and evaluating the liabilities and assets first, and will then lead to either attorneys discussing distribution, or both parties discussing distribution through the help of a divorce mediator. Depending on the relationship of the divorcing couple, either traditional litigation or divorce mediation will be used. If there are children involved in the marriage, other issues will need to be discussed such as custody, visitation and child support.

When it comes to divorce, the process can sometimes become stressful, difficult and expensive when emotions cloud the judgment of the parties. This becomes exponentially more difficult when there are children involved. If you are handling your divorce by hiring a good Ocean County divorce mediator or attorney, you can help keep the cost of your case down without it getting too expensive. In fact, the divorce lawyers at the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., have settled many of our Ocean County cases for less than what other law firms take as initial retainers! If you need a divorce lawyer in Ocean County, call our law firm to see what we can do for you.

Have a Good Divorce Team On Your Side

The divorce law in New Jersey can be very confusing in certain areas. For example, the grounds for asking for a divorce or whether there needs to be a period of separation can be complicated for divorcing couples. However, the bottom line is that if you want to get divorced, you will be able to. This is regardless of what your spouse says or does. You do not need to move out first either, and in some cases, you shouldn't. This is one of the reasons why, before you make any big decisions, you should speak to a professional divorce attorney about all your legal issues and options moving forward. At the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., we offer a free, initial consultation where you can speak to one of our dedicated and experienced lawyers to discuss your options and the divorce process. It is best to fully understand all the options available to you so you feel comfortable taking the steps necessary to finalize your divorce. Having a good divorce team on your side can help you make the decisions that will benefit and help you during your divorce case.

What Will My Divorce Cost? Aren't Divorces Expensive?

While there is no real way to know exactly how much your divorce will cost you, there are ways to keep your divorce costs down. One way is to consider divorce mediation. If you are finding that you and your spouse are very agreeable in working together and making decisions in your divorce, then mediation will help keep the matter out of court. This will help remove the need for court fees and will put the power of those decisions in the hands of you and your spouse, rather than a judge. The divorce mediator will help guide the talks and make sure both sides are heard and have their needs addressed. Even though divorce mediation may seem ideal, or seem to work at the beginning, sometimes traditional litigation needs to be used.

If you find yourself not in good terms with your spouse, traditional litigation is the better route to take. While you will have court fees to consider, if you hire a good lawyer, especially one with an extensive track record, the proceedings can be handled quickly, helping keep the price down. The Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., know how to get great results without breaking the bank for our clients.
