Types of Family Law Cases in Short Hills

Those who find themselves needing a matrimonial attorney are sometimes embroiled in situations involving tension, anxiety—even hostility and anger. It is at this juncture that a calm, knowledgeable, positive influence on the situation is crucial.

The Williams Law Group offers an honest assessment of an individual’s case, provides personal attention to the specific facts, as well as strong representation when a person needs it most. Perhaps a spouse is in the midst of a contentious divorce or they are concerned about asset division. In other situations, a person may need help with fighting for custody or may want more information about drafting a marital agreement.

Laws in Short Hills Regarding Divorce

State law provides grounds for divorce that include both “fault” and “no-fault” filings. In a “no-fault” divorce, the parties must live separate and apart for 18 months before filing for divorce. An individual may file for a “fault” divorce for situations involving adultery, desertion, and domestic abuse. Alternatively, a couple may file for a “no-fault” divorce if they cannot work out their differences and wish to end their marriage as a result of those differences.

Most divorce proceedings focus on two major areas: distribution of marital assets and debts, as well as child custody and support. Regarding property interests, state law follows the rule of “equitable distribution,” which establishes that married couples without a valid prenup should fairly distribute both assets and liabilities upon divorce. In a final judgment of a divorce involving children, parents may have to address issues such as custody, child support, visitation, and relocation. One of our Short Hills lawyers could assist with any of these sensitive family law situations.
