Morris County Divorce Lawyers Located in Madison, NJ
Remember when you met that special someone? The excitement and nervousness, the intense adrenaline charge, and butterflies you would get as soon as you were together. Then you were worried about when is the best time to bring them home to meet your parents. Meeting parents in a relationship is a big step. The casual dating will now be taken up a notch, solidifying your couplehood. So a couple of months into your relationship, you got up the nerve, invited your new date to a beautiful home-cooked meal by your mother, and viola, your parents approved. What a relief!
Your new wonderful relationship is now in full swing followed by a beautiful engagement, then the ultimate special occasion, the wedding. During the ceremony, you vowed, “to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish till death do us part.”
You were now to spend the rest of your life with this special person and build a long-lasting life together.
However, these vows and relationships do not always work out the way many dream of. All relationships, whether friendly or romantic, start with an attraction to each other. This can be in beauty, personality, wealth, intelligence, sense of humor, or another human interest source.
If any of these initial attractions start to fade, so can the marriage. The difference in views and cultural backgrounds can also have a significant influence and cause conflict. Marriages, where one partner is selfish and does not share life’s burdens can also draw one partner away from the other.
These are just a few conflicts in a marriage that can result in divorce.
Now, where do you go from here?
Many people assume that all divorces are bitter, drawn-out battles, as you and your ex-spouse’s lawyers argue. While it can come to that, it does not always have to.
Below, we will explain the process of a contested and collaborative divorce. We will then put you in the right direction to get the help you need for your divorce proceedings.
Many spouses that go through a divorce do not agree on everything. If they can’t compromise and come to an amicable solution, a case will need to be brought to the courts before a judge. It is here where there will be a settlement in the dispute.
There are many reasons for contested divorces. The division of property and assets is one along with spousal support, otherwise known as alimony.
The most bitter divorces almost always involve the custody of children. Both parents typically want primary custody — the court’s job is to determine the children’s best interests. No matter the ruling, it is crucial to help your child through this challenging and confusing process.
Collaborative divorce is a relatively new process; Dalena & Bosch is one of only a few firms in Morris County specializing in this type of divorce.
Collaborative divorce focuses on both spouses working together to split amicably. As part of this process, the attorneys will sign a participation agreement that binds them to the collaborative divorce process. If negotiations fail and the case ends up going to trial, neither attorney may represent either party.
If disagreements occur regarding joint business or child custody issues, a neutral professional third party may be brought in. Like attorneys, these professionals are hired jointly and must agree to abstain from participating in a trial, if it comes to that.
When both spouses work and own a business together and are choosing to remain business partners, there are ways to benefit both individuals and the business.
