We Are Equipped For Complex Divorces And Divorce Litigation
Rajeh A. Saadeh is attuned to the special divorce considerations for high-earner and high net worth clients such as disputes over separate property or valuation of business assets, or the role of imputed income, asset tracing, and premarital agreements.
We use the discovery process, negotiation opportunities, and mediation, arbitration, and other alternative dispute resolution methods to maximize the likelihood of an amicable resolution (and thereby avoiding protracted and expensive litigation). When going to trial is the only means to achieve a favorable outcome for your case, however, we are prepared to aggressively pursue this course of action.
Answers To Common Divorce Questions
Here are three of the most often asked questions about New Jersey divorce. For answers to other questions you have, get in touch with us at 908-396-8330 or send an email and our team will be in touch.
How long does a divorce take?
Every divorce is different because there are different variables to consider. For example, if you have children, there will be issues of child custody. If you have a business involved, there is the valuation process to contend with. If you are divorcing amicably, then it will take presumably less time than if yours is a contested divorce. Generally speaking, most divorces in New Jersey are supposed to be completed within one year, but most are resolved well beforehand.
What is the difference between a contested and an uncontested divorce?
If you and your spouse agree to the terms and both want to get the divorce as smoothly as possible, you have an uncontested divorce. You will not need to have a judge to make decisions for you or need to have a courtroom trial. Uncontested divorces that do not go to trial are more private and less expensive. If you are dealing with a lot of disagreements and require a divorce in court, this is a contested divorce. With rare exception, divorce trials are public record.
Are there benefits to having a lawyer handle my divorce?
Yes. There are definite benefits to working with an attorney. A skilled divorce lawyer can ensure the process does not stagnate but moves steadily forward. An attorney will negotiate on your behalf for the things that are most important to you. An attorney will protect your rights and offer creative solutions you may not have considered. Most of all, an attorney – a good one – will provide both the legal and emotional support you need during this major life change.
