Getting a divorce can be your best option if your marriage has problems. But even if it does end, it can still be challenging in many ways. Moreover, the scenario’s outcome could also significantly impact the rest of your life. Regardless of whether or how you retain custody of your children, what joint property you keep, or whether you pay or get spousal support, each of these topics is of the utmost importance and has the potential to affect your life for years to come.

If you want to protect your rights as a woman during a divorce in New Jersey, you need an aggressive, empathetic, and successful family lawyer on your side. Tanya L.

Our strategic and competent team is ready to support you as you go through the divorce process.

The Common Areas of Divorce in New Jersey

Mothers’ Rights

The legal landscape around custody disputes has altered recently. There is no longer a rule that a judge will always give the mother custody. Instead, in the absence of compelling evidence, New Jersey courts believe that parents share parenting obligations and should continue to maintain contact with their children. You must either agree with your husband or convince the court of your case if you want a specific custody arrangement. A tenacious women’s rights lawyer, Tanya L. Freeman, Attorney At Law, can help you fight for the best custody arrangement for your child and your family. 

If you are given primary custody or have custody of the child, you are entitled to child support payments from the other parent. However, the non-custodial parent must pay child support, which belongs to the child and not the parent. Consult a knowledgeable child custody and child support attorney from a reputable law firm about your child’s rights and what to do if your husband or co-parent opposes them or fails to keep their obligations.


Property Division


In New Jersey, equitable distribution laws are in effect. That suggests that the judge will distribute properties fairly between the two parties, but not necessarily 50/50. Property that needs to be divided following a divorce includes things like real estate, cash, stocks, retirement benefits, and strong ownership interests. Each spouse receives an equitable portion of their property’s net value, which is calculated by subtracting outstanding debts from assets. 

You can get help from our property division lawyers at Tanya L. Freeman, Attorney At Law, if you want to safeguard certain assets (such as assets accumulated before marriage). We will fight to protect your right to any specific marital assets you wish to keep and act as your advocates. We’ll also investigate your spouse’s finances to ensure they aren’t hanging onto anything that should be treated as marital property throughout the divorce or even considered when spousal support is determined. Finally, we provide thorough women’s divorce services at Tanya L. Freeman, Attorney At Law, to guarantee that you get the best representation in court and at the negotiation table.


Spousal Support

If you get divorced, your financial situation could be severely disrupted. Preparing for the future is essential since it may involve paying or receiving spousal support (also known as alimony). In New Jersey, spousal support may be awarded temporarily while the divorce is pending and permanently or long-term after it has been finalized. The length of the marriage, if one spouse gave up their work to care for the family and children, each spouse’s earning potential and financial circumstances, the amount of long-term alimony awarded, and other factors will all affect how much is granted. If you need help getting alimony or lowering the amount you owe in alimony, contact Tanya L. Freeman, Attorney At Law.
