Family Law: Divorce Settlements and Litigation

New Jersey Divorce Settlement and Litigation Attorneys Who are Here to Help

Most divorcing spouses end their marriage through a settlement achieved during the litigation process. Generally, after a lawsuit has been filed, they negotiate the terms of their divorce, enter into a settlement agreement, and then submit their agreement to a judge who formally dissolves the marriage. Our New Jersey divorce settlement lawyer and litigation attorneys help to divorce spouses protect their interests as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

Negotiating a Divorce Settlement Agreement in New Jersey

What Issues Do You Need to Consider When Negotiating a Divorce Settlement Agreement?

Ending a marriage by a settlement requires an agreement on all of the issues involved in a couple’s divorce. However, overlooking issues can lead to unwanted (and costly) post-divorce complications. As a result, it is imperative to work with an experienced New Jersey divorce settlement lawyer who can guide you through the process and help you make informed decisions with your long-term best interests in mind.

Working with an experienced New Jersey divorce settlement lawyer will allow you to feel confident that you have fully considered all of the issues you need to address during the divorce process. Depending on your circumstances, these issues may include:

When Should You Consider a Divorce Settlement?

Most spouses who are contemplating divorce will want to consider pursuing a divorce settlement. Settling is the most efficient option (although coming to terms can take time), and it avoids the burdens and stresses of litigation.

But, it is essential not to settle solely because you want to avoid going to court. The terms of your divorce settlement agreement will impact your life (and your children’s lives) for years or decades to come, so you need to put in the time and effort to make the right decisions for you and your children.

Pursuing a Favorable Result in New Jersey Divorce Litigation

When divorcing spouses are unable to reach a settlement agreement on their own, they must pursue litigation. Litigation may result in a judge deciding for them, or it may help them bridge the gap and reach a settlement out of court. When you hire a New Jersey divorce litigation attorney at Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A., your attorney will guide you through all aspects of the litigation process—including:

  • Filing, service, and response
  • Financial and asset disclosures
  • Temporary orders (i.e., an order for alimony pendente lite, which is a payment of alimony while the divorce is pending)
  • Discovery
  • Settlement negotiations during litigation
  • Pre-trial motions and trial
