Divorce in Morristown, N.J.
If you are considering a divorce in Morristown, in addition to consideration of the emotional toll this takes on you, it’s imperative that you consider the legal ramifications as well. This is where our experienced divorce attorneys come in.
As an equitable distribution state, the New Jersey court system will consider a myriad of elements to determine the fairest way to divide your marital property. Note that this doesn’t mean equal division. An experienced divorce lawyer can assist you in reviewing assets and debts, and the considerations that a court will assess in making this determination. Preparation is an effective tool in safeguarding your rights and your property, both financial and real.
Unless you are alleging adultery as your grounds for divorce, either your spouse or you must be a resident of New Jersey for no less than one year before you can file for your divorce. This is the only stipulation on time you must follow to receive a divorce in New Jersey. Once you have fulfilled any other requirements, a judge may grant you a decree following your divorce hearing. Castronovo & McKinney’s divorce lawyers are familiar with the applicable state and federal laws to assist you in your divorce proceedings.
