Divorce in Monmouth County

Residents of Monmouth County who find themselves dealing with the prospect of divorce need a divorce lawyer who knows the county and understands what makes it different.

Monmouth County is at the southern end of the New York metropolitan area. Its residents are well educated and the per capita income is one of the highest in the state.

It is also at the northern end of the so-called “Jersey Shore” region and as such, tourism is among the most important industries. About 6 million tourists visit the county each year to take advantage of its beaches, recreational areas, and important historic sites.

Monmouth County, New Jersey – home to over 600,000 residents – sees its fair share of divorces in any given year. Some of these divorce proceedings are amicable in that the parties both agree that a dissolution of their marriage is appropriate and in everyone’s best interest; other proceedings are bitter and full of animosity as one spouse attempts to gain some advantage over the other spouse. Every divorce, however, can have a lasting impact on how the spouses relate to one another and to their children as well as how easily each spouse is able to begin to live independent of one another following the divorce.

You are facing divorce, and that means almost every part of your life is disrupted. A good divorce lawyer can help you with the process. A great divorce lawyer can provide you with the smoothest possible transition, insure that your rights are upheld, and protect your children, income, and assets. From the outset, we know that you have questions. There are many myths about what will or will not happen during your divorce. Your questions can be answered and your uncertainties put to rest with the counsel of a capable Monmouth County divorce lawyer.

At Aretsky Law Group, P.C., you will be in direct contact at all times with a family law attorney who has extensive education credentials and experience working in divorce related cases.

You Need a Monmouth County Divorce Lawyer: Divorce lawyers at Aretsky Law Group, P.C., represent clients in Freehold, Aberdeen, and Ocean Grove. With decades of experience, we work tirelessly to see that their rights are protected and their interests served.

The assistance of an experienced and knowledgeable Monmouth County divorce lawyer from Aretsky Law Group, P.C. can provide divorcing parties in Monmouth County with advice and representation throughout the divorce proceeding and other related proceedings, such as:

Division of property: The Monmouth County family law judge assigned to hear your divorce case has an obligation to divide the marital assets in the possession of you and your spouse in a “fair and equitable manner.” The property and assets that are awarded to you can impact your financial stability in the short (and, potentially, long) term.

Child custody, visitation, and child support: If you and your spouse have minor children in common, a court is obligated to not only enter orders regarding who will receive primary physical custody of the child but also what visitation rights the non-residential parent will enjoy and the amount of child support the non-residential parent will need to pay. The amount of child support that will be ordered is based upon the income of the parties, so it is essential that correct figures are used when calculating child support.

Alimony: One spouse or the other may request that the other party pay him or her a specific sum of money (either in a lump sum payment or in periodic payments) to assist the payee in reestablishing him- or herself following a divorce. Any sum of money so ordered is termed alimony. The availability of alimony in any given case depends on several factors, so it is important that someone carefully examine your situation and circumstances to determine whether alimony is appropriate and, if so, in what amount.

Eric was able to successfully represent me in a financial dispute. I found his candor, knowledge, and skills highly effective in resolving the matter. This was my first experience using his services and now regard him as my personal attorney for any issue. Eric is my first call. Thank you! Dave
