You surely don't want them, but unfortunately you have them nonetheless.

You recognize that you cannot ignore them any longer.

You feel that you need good, solid legal advice because you are about to make some very important decisions, but you're not sure where to turn for that advice.

You have an idea of what you need to do next, but you're not positive. After all, you've never gone through anything quite like this before.

And you have questions. Lots of them, including:

How much time will you spend with your children?

How will your spouse's "issues" affect you or your children going forward?

Where will you live?

How are alimony and child support calculated?

What about  financial assets? How much will you get?

You want to be fair. But you're not sure that your spouse will be either fair or honest with you.

You do not want to waste money paying for any more legal fees than are necessary.

Yet you want to know that your lawyer will do all that is legally possible to do to protect you if your spouse makes things difficult.



Every day for the past 32 years I have been advising Monmouth County residents on how to resolve problems like custody, alimony, child support, physical abuse, emotional abuse, financial challenges, substance abuse, and all of the other things that lead people to Divorce Court.
