Hackensack Divorce Attorney
Experienced Team of Family Attorneys Serving Hackensack and Livingston, New Jersey
One of the most challenging aspects of divorce is that, legally, there is never just one, single matter to resolve between spouses. Even some of the most amicable spouses will learn that a surprising number of matters need to be resolved before dissolving their marriage to their partner. In doing so, unforeseen complications can arise and prevent either party from receiving the terms and assets they deserve.
At Ziegler Law Group LLC, we believe in a vigilant and exacting approach to divorce. Our dedicated team of Livingston divorce attorneys has decades of legal experience in this arena and are well-versed in navigating the many factors that can complicate and prolong this process, such as:
What is a Wife Entitled to in a Divorce in New Jersey?
In New Jersey, a wife is entitled to a fair share of marital assets, including property, debt, and income. The court will consider several factors when determining how to divide the assets, including the length of the marriage, the contributions of each spouse to the relationship, and the needs of each spouse.
In addition to a share of the marital assets, a wife may also be entitled to alimony, also known as spousal support. Spousal support is designed to help a spouse unable to support themselves financially after the divorce. The court in NJ will consider some aspects when determining whether to award alimony, including the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and the needs of each spouse.
Finally, a wife may also be entitled to child support if she has children with her spouse. Child support is designed to help ensure the child has the financial resources they need to live a comfortable life after the divorce. The NJ court will consider many characteristics when determining the amount of child support, including each parent's income, the children's needs, and the time each parent spends with the children.
