There are three legal options for divorcing in New Jersey: traditional litigation, collaborative law and mediation. Regardless of which type of divorce process you choose, there will be many discussions between the divorcing spouses about how to divide everything from the marriage – including property, cars, retirement funds, etc. Additionally, couples with children have a considerable amount of information decisions to make: who will get custody of the kids, who pays child support and visitation rights, to name a few.
If you opt for the collaborative law or mediation approach, the proceedings will generally be “out of court.” Decisions are made with the assistance of legal counsel and the proposed settlement is presented the court for final approval. These options are considered the kinder, gentler way of getting divorced; they also tend to be less expensive because time in court is significantly reduced.
These discussions will take place with the help of experienced family lawyers. The divorce lawyers at Graziano & Flynn have been guiding couples in Voorhees and Cinnaminson townships, and throughout all of Camden County, NJ, through the process of getting divorced. We are skilled negotiators and we will protect your interests. Ron Graziano and Robyn Flynn are tenacious litigators. If you and your soon-to-be ex cannot agree on something important and require the court’s intervention, we will be by your side fighting for your rights.
Uncontested divorces may take as little as three months to complete after filing the complaint, but this is just an estimate. When couples agree and do not contest the divorce terms, the process is much quicker. Contested divorces will take significantly longer, and court dates will only be set after completing investigations, evaluations and reports of the disputes.Graziano & Flynn Represents Divorcing Clients in Washington Township, Monroe Township and all of Camden County
