When You Should Have an Attorney for a Divorce v. A Do It Yourself Divorce

Nov 6, 2015 @ 02:21 PM — by Michael Green

With the Internet today and access to information online for divorce, many individuals think they can "do it yourself" or obtain a "packet of forms" from a center without attorneys or from the courts directly.  In some cases, that certainly is true.  But, for those cases where there is real property, distribution of retirement accounts or pensions, or alimony at issue, you may be far better served by obtaining legal advice from an attorney experienced in divorce and family law matters. 

At Green & Associates, we have the necessary experience in divorce and family law to give you the practical advice that you need.  And, we'll do it for reasonable fees, we can even offer you a flat fee for specific services, such as a limited uncontested divorce. Call us now in our East Brunswick office at 732-390-0480 or in our Fort Lee office at 201-242-1119 for a free consultation.  Night and weekend appointments are available.

Divorce and Equitiable Distribution with the Death of A Spouse During Divorce Litigation

Aug 5, 2015 @ 05:41 PM — by Michael Green

What happens if a party to a divorce dies during the litigation.  Many would be surprised to learn that the party's estate may seek equitable distribution of assets after the death of a spouse even if that spouse has died during the divorce litigation and prior to any judgment of divorce being entered by the Court.

New Jersey case law has established precedent such that an estate of a surviving spouse has the right to continue the litigation and seek the equitable distribution of all assets and debt after the death of the spouse.  At Green & Associates, as divorce attorneys, we have had experience with such cases.  If you are the executor of such an estate, please call us in our East Brunswick office at 732-390-0480 or at our Fort Lee office at 201-242-1119 for a free consultation as to such an issue and to determine the rights of an estate where the spouse has died during the divorce litigation.
