Aspects of Divorce in New Jersey
There Are No One-Size-Fits-All Solutions
Every divorce involves many factors. It is essential that your divorce lawyer can employ a customized strategy based on your needs. For example, you and your spouse may be on amicable terms and may be close to agreeing on all issues. In this type of case, you may be able to take a swifter and more cost-effective approach through divorce mediation or collaborative divorce. On the other hand, you may already be engaged in a bitter dispute over these issues. Negotiation may be out of the question. In this situation, you may need to pursue divorce litigation and, ultimately, a trial in New Jersey.

What to Consider Before Filing for Divorce
Before filing for divorce, litigants should be prepared for life after divorce, as well as the divorce process. While no one gets married thinking they are going to get divorced, it is important that if one is contemplating divorce at any point during their marriage, that they begin to prepare for what lies ahead.
Some Important Factors
First, it is important to understand the implications that a divorce will have on your children. There will be a different parenting time schedule than the child is used to. This includes holiday traditions possibly changing. Further, the child, as well as the parties, need to understand that the financial arrangements are going to change, as there are now two households being supported on the same amount of money.
Every Case Is Different
While everyone talks with their friends or family members about their pending divorce, parties should not compare themselves to any other couples who are getting divorced or who already are divorce. Every case is different, as everyone's circumstances are different, and therefore everyone's divorce will be different. What might have happened in your friend's divorce, may not necessarily happen in your divorce.
Determining Your Goals
It is important to discuss with your attorney what your goals are and what you are willing to compromise on and what you are not. As no one knows your life and your circumstance better than you, it is important to share this information with your attorney so that they can fight for it for you.
