We proudly represent divorce clients throughout New Jersey, including Clifton

Divorce is one of the hardest things you will ever go through. It can feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster, without the safety bar and harnesses. There’s a lot that goes into the process of filing for divorce, particularly if you’ve been married to your spouse for a long time. That’s why it’s important to meet with a qualified divorce lawyer.

Clifton divorce lawyers from Bhatt Law Group understand how important it is for you to secure your financial security, assets, and child custody after a divorce. We will leverage our familiarity with the law to represent and take you through the whole process so that it can be less stressful for you.

Reasons You need a Clifton Divorce Lawyer

The legal issues surrounding divorce are complex and can be intimidating for anyone, especially those who are not familiar with them. Therefore, you need a lawyer for the following reasons.

  • Help You Navigate the Legal Landscape

    Understanding the law, court proceedings, and other requirements can be difficult, especially if it’s your first time. That is why you need to hire a divorce attorney that has the expertise for your specific needs.

    Most Clifton divorce lawyers have handled similar cases before and can use their extensive experience in family law to take care of your divorce proceeding in an efficient manner. You will have peace of mind knowing that your case is in the hands of experts.

  • Helps Solve Disputes Over Division of Property

    Division of assets is one of the most common issues that couples face during divorce proceedings. It may be hard to agree on how much property each party should get in the split, leading to a lengthy legal battle.

    Thankfully, a Clifton divorce lawyer will act as a third party to help you navigate these complex legal issues to reach a fair and sensible agreement. He or she will use their knowledge to ensure that the property division is done in the most just manner.

  • When the Custody of Children is Contested

    Child custody is another contentious issue after a marriage dissolves. The law requires that children maintain contact with both parents even after a divorce.

    However, it can be difficult to ensure this when one parent moves away from the area. This can mean that the non-custodial parent will have little to no contact with the children.

    To avoid the emotional turmoil that comes with child custody, it is a wise idea to hire a lawyer in Clifton. A good Clifton Divorce Lawyer will take your rights and responsibilities as a parent to come up with a workable solution that is in the best interest of the child and everyone involved.

  • Unsolved Alimony Issues

    When a divorce occurs, the payments made by one spouse (or former spouse) to the other are usually known as alimony. Generally, alimony helps both spouses to continue living the kind of life they did before the divorce.

    However, this may vary based on different factors such as each spouse’s earnings, responsibility, length of the marriage, and more.  Because of the long financial implications involved in alimonies, you may want to seek the help of a divorce attorney.

    This is true whether you are the one being made to make the payments or you are the one seeking alimony. A Clifton divorce lawyer will have specific understanding, knowledge, and experience to ensure that any unsolved alimony issues are dealt with in good time.

  • When There is Significant Debt Involved

    The number one reason people in Clifton need a divorce lawyer is because that there is significant debt involved.

    If you are in a position where you are responsible for paying off your spouse’s debt after they get divorced, then it can be difficult to keep your finances in order. This is especially true if you have an unstable job or no job at all.

    Similarly, your spouse may be owing you money that will need to be settled. This is where a divorce attorney comes in handy to help you secure a settlement that will work best for you. If you need to sign any agreement, the lawyer will ensure that your needs and best interests are protected.

What to Look For in a Divorce Lawyer

Similarly, knowing what to look for in a good divorce lawyer can help increase the chances of your success. Here are important factors to consider when hiring a lawyer.

  • Experience

    Experience refers to the number of years a lawyer has been practicing law, and their ability to handle different types of cases. You want a lawyer who is knowledgeable of the law and has handled plenty of cases in your area.

    Furthermore, a Clifton divorce lawyer should have experience with family law and should also be able to help with other types of cases.  It’s important to find a lawyer who understands your needs and can help you through the process.

  • Local Familiarity

    If you are looking for a divorce lawyer in Clifton, make sure that you find one that is familiar with the area and local laws. This is important because it allows them to quickly respond if there’s an emergency involving one of your kids or another family member. Plus, their familiarity with the local laws and the statute’s language means that they will help you to understand the court orders and laws that pertain to your situation.

  • Communication

    Communication is key when dealing with any type of legal issue, especially during this sensitive time in your life. If your lawyer isn’t communicating effectively with you or others involved in the case, then they’re not doing their job properly.

    Good communication helps keep things on track by ensuring everyone involved knows exactly what’s going on at all times. It’s also important to find someone willing to answer your questions thoroughly, regardless of how trivial they might seem.

  • Efficiency

    An effective lawyer will be able to provide you with the best legal advice, explain your options, and help you make an informed decision. You want a lawyer who is efficient, effective, and thorough. They will also handle your case quickly and efficiently and you won’t have to wait months for their response.

Alright! These guys are amazing. I was devastated when I got a three tickets in New Jersey with 12 points in total and fines adding up over $1K. The officer was truly rude, unfair and just took out his bad day on me. At this point I had no idea what to do but I must find some legal help to fight this in court. After getting the tickets, I called a bunch of different law groups trying to see who can help me with this. I was able to talk to many of them and mostly all of them seemed like they wanted to see how much they can get out of me before even hearing out what my concerns where. Then I got around to calling Bhatt Law Group and I was welcome by this lady (whose name I don't know) and she was amazing. She listened and helped me be calm and gave me assurance I am in good hands. She offer pricing and it seemed very reasonable too. I made my payment and then I didn't have anything to worry about till the day of the virtual court. They figured out all my court dates and managed everything on the back end. They would give me updates on what the process is up to. Funny story, on the day of my virtual court session I overslept thinking my court time was at 11 am instead of 9 am and I had my attorney Devin Baer even giving me a call to get me out of bed to attend the zoom. I don't know how many attorneys would do that for their client. Devin was very helpful, professional and understanding. He gave me a call prior to my court session and gave important pointers and even through out the court session he made me feel confident and assure that everything will be okay. So these guys were friendly, helpful and professional but where there any results? OH YEAH! I was able to lower my fines and points to barely nothing. These guys are life savers and will help you legally in any situation where you have been treated unfairly. Thank you Bhatt Law.
