What Does a Divorce in Passaic Encompass?

Divorce is a legal process that ends a marriage. It usually takes time, money, and effort to get through the court proceedings. For a person to file for a divorce in Passaic, they must have separated for 18 months.

Divorce can either be uncontested, where both parties agree to the divorce. However, if one spouse does not agree to the process, then the divorce is considered contested. Usually, this happens if there is disagreement on how the divorce issues such as alimony and child rights will be done.

In most divorce settlements, issues such as child support, child custody, spousal support, debts, and division of assets can be encountered.  In this case, you need an experienced and dedicated Passaic divorce lawyer to defend your rights and make the process less turbulent.

Your divorce attorney will help you navigate through emotionally-charged issues that occur during a divorce so you don’t have to deal with them alone. He or she will also ensure that you sign settlements that work for you, saving you significant money in the long run.

Why Do People Divorce?

There are many reasons why people divorce in Passaic. Some of the most common ones include:

  • Adultery

    This is one of the main reasons for divorce among married couples. If your spouse has been unfaithful to you, it can destroy your relationship and lead to a divorce. The consequences of this type of betrayal can be severe and provides ground for divorce in Passaic.

  • Willful Abandonment for At Least 21 Months

    This one does not necessarily mean that your husband or wife has moved out of the house and stopped paying rent. It may just mean that he or she has stopped talking to you or even seeing you as much as they used to when things were good between the two of you.

  • Physical or Mental Abuse

    This is another common reason for divorce because it can cause major damage to a person’s physical and emotional health. Physical abuse includes using your hand or weapon to beat your spouse, kicking them in the groin, punching them in the face, etc.

    Mental abuse includes yelling at someone or constantly insulting him or her verbally. It also includes making threats against his or her life.

  • Mental illness

    Mental illness for 24 consecutive months or more of institutionalization can be a ground for divorce. This can include a psychotic disorder like schizophrenia that makes it difficult for a person to function normally and/or a manic episode that causes them to act irrationally.

How Do you File for Divorce in Passaic?

The first thing you should do is contact the Passaic County Family Court, which handles cases filed in Passaic County. There is a phone number on the website, but if you’re looking for a more local number, visit the Passaic County Courthouse and ask for the Clerk’s Office.

When you call them, they will ask for your name and address, as well as your spouse’s name, address, and phone number. You’ll also need to know what date your marriage ended or why it ended (for example adultery or abuse). Once they have all of this information, they can help you file an application with the court clerk.

When filing for a case, you will need to fill up an online application form, answer the questions truthfully and submit it electronically. You will then be provided with information and notices regarding the process of the case.

This process might not be smooth if you choose to do it alone, but a Passaic divorce lawyer can make it effortless for you.

How a Passaic Divorce Lawyer Can Help in a Divorce Process

The divorce process can be a stressful one, and having a lawyer on your side can make it much easier. The lawyer will offer support in a number of ways.

  • Offer Legal Advice

    A divorce lawyer will help you get through the difficult times of divorce by offering legal advice and assistance. They can advise on a fair settlement for both parties, as well as protect your property and rights.

  • File the Case and Represent You in Court

    A divorce lawyer will represent you in court and make sure that your interests are protected at all times. They will draft the necessary paperwork and file it with the court for you. They will also ensure that any agreements reached between you and your spouse are upheld by law.

  • Negotiate on Your Behalf

    In many cases, the first step toward divorce is agreeing on custody and child support arrangements. A lawyer can help you negotiate custody agreements and child support payments that are fair to both parties.

    A family law attorney can also help you decide if there’s any property that needs to be divided, including retirement accounts. These issues can be difficult to handle on your own since they are emotionally engaging.

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.
