Divorce is messy. There are emotional challenges, financial hardships, and lots of potential headaches to be had from dealing with a complicated legal system.

You might think it’s best to handle your divorce on your own. Perhaps you’re worried an attorney would make things more contentions. However, the opposite is often true. A Morristown divorce lawyer from Bhatt Law Group will be happy to assist you through this difficult time. Your lawyer will explain your rights and options. For more information, contact us online or call (201) 798-8000.

Divorce Complications

The legal process of divorce involves the practical separation of two lives. You will need to think about:

  • Property Division A court will go through your shared monetary savings, investments, personal property, etc., and determine equitable division. Your Morristown divorce lawyer will help to ensure this process is fair to you.
  • Division of Debt Mortgages, auto loans, credit card debt etc., will be properly assigned to you or your spouse.
  • Retirement Retirement savings must be addressed, especially if a majority of your retirement savings come from your spouse’s employer. Your lawyer will take steps to ensure you receive your fair share.
  • Alimony Should one spouse pay another spousal support, or alimony? There are many types of alimony, including temporary, rehabilitative, and permanent.
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements If you and your spouse formed a valid prenuptial or postnuptial contract, it can control or influence your divorce.
  • Child Custody and Support When a marriage involves children, spouses will need to come to a parenting agreement. If they are unable, a judge will decide the custody arrangement based on the best interests of the child. Child support will be in part determined by New Jersey’s general guidelines, but a number of factors will also come into play, impacting the final decision of who owes what and how much.
  • If this all seems like too much to handle on your own, it probably is. The experienced divorce lawyers at Bhatt Law Group can help.

Filing for Divorce in Morristown

To start this process you will need to fill out the proper forms, draft the paperwork, and file all documents in the correct court. Your lawyer can help devise your strategy: how and when to file for divorce, what you allege, and what you plan to ask for. All of these can impact how your spouse responds and how smoothly this process goes.

If you are filing for divorce based on your spouse’s actions, you will choose from one of several grounds for divorce allowed in the state of New Jersey:

● Adultery
● Willful Abandonment
● Physical or Mental Abuse
● Drug or Alcohol Addiction
● Consensual Deviant Sexual Conduct
● Mental Illness Resulting in 24 Consecutive Months or More of Institutionalization
● Incarceration of 18 Months or More
● Living Separately and Apart for 18 Consecutive Months

If, on the other hand, neither you nor your spouse is responsible for the divorce, you may claim irreconcilable differences.

You will also have a choice between a contested or uncontested divorce.

Contested Divorce: Your spouse does not want to end your marriage, or may disagree with the way you want to resolve one or more issues related to your divorce, like child custody or dividing finances.

Uncontested Divorce: Your spouse agrees that the marriage should be dissolved, and is on board with all related issues. (These divorces usually go much more quickly.)

An experienced Morristown divorce lawyer from Bhatt Law Group will make sure you understand the different types of divorce and how they affect the legal process.

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.
