Old Bridge Divorce

Child Custody

In Old Bridge, estranged parents are encouraged to put aside their differences and work together for the child’s best interests. An Old Bridge divorce lawyer from our law firm can help in achieving the best possible outcome for the child, through negotiation and mediation. However, results are not typical because each situation provides unique challenges.

If negotiations break down, the judge will make a custody decision. This will be based on the parent’s ability to provide the best home for the child. Our child custody attorneys offer representation at all stages of a child custody dispute to work towards the fairest possible outcome for you and your child.

Child Support

Under the NJ Child Support Guidelines, the circumstances of both the custodial and noncustodial parents are considered, as well as the child’s needs while determining the appropriate child support to be paid. Whether you are the parent making the payments or receiving them, our child support attorneys ensure that the arrangement is fair to both parties.

There are also provisions in the law for a parent who wants to modify a child support order. Our Old Bridge divorce attorneys have been able to accomplish this in the past by proving beyond doubt that circumstances of the parties involved are no longer the same as when the original order was implemented.

Property Division

After child custody disputes, property division is often the most hotly contested issue between couples seeking marriage dissolution. It is essential to have an experienced attorney focused on this aspect of a divorce process. Our attorneys can help protect your claim to what is rightfully yours.

If the two parties cannot reach an agreement, property division will be ordered based on equitable distribution. Equitable distribution does not simply mean equal shares, but instead depends on many factors such as matrimonial assets and debts, length of marriage, standard of living and contributions by each spouse.
