About Dissolution of Marriage
Dissolution of marriage legally terminates a marriage and leaves both parties free to remarry. There are several possible legal issues to be addressed when you divorce. It is important that you raise all applicable concerns when you file your Divorce Complaint or you may lose legal ground to deal with them later. Common matters include real and personal property division, alimony, and child support and child custody. Unpaid debts, insurance policies and premiums, pensions and retirement accounts, name changes, court settlements and military spouses are examples of specific issues that require careful consideration and adept legal counsel.
Divorce in New Jersey
New Jersey enjoys one of the lowest divorce rates in the country, at about 9%. One popular theory for this low rate is the expense of divorcing and maintaining two separate households in this affluent area. Therefore, when contemplating dissolution of marriage in New Jersey, it is essential that you retain the services of a seasoned attorney skilled in divorce mediation, who can help you obtain a manageable divorce settlement. To file for divorce in New Jersey, you and/or your spouse must be a resident of the state, and must have been so for at least one year prior to initiating the dissolution.
