Morris County Equitable Distribution Lawyer

Protecting Your Financial Future in a Morris County Divorce

Filing for divorce is difficult, even when the two people involved are generally amicable. Our Morris County divorce attorney at Law Offices of Francesca S. Blanco, LLC understands that these issues are stressful and often of great concern, particularly with financial issues. Under state law, there is to be an equitable distribution of both assets and debts. How this will be determined can vary widely, and it is important that you have legal counsel very familiar with the process, with exceptional negotiating skills.

Ms. Blanco, our lead attorney, will carefully evaluate your situation and determine how to best pursue your objectives in the divorce, and will advise you how state law will impact the division of assets in your divorce. Our firm has over 15 years of experience and provides personal, compassionate and effective legal counsel in even the most difficult divorce cases.

What happens in equitable distribution?

Equitable distribution does not mean that all assets will be split 50/50. This is a process in which all of the assets and liabilities that were incurred during the term of the marriage will be valued and then split in a way that is deemed most fair for both parties. If one person is going to keep the family home, they may be required to pay the other person for their share; other cases could include an arrangement in which a settlement is made that is agreeable to both parties that wraps up all financial issues. It is often very helpful to engage in mediation to get these issues resolved. If you are unable to, then the court will make decisions.

When a divorce is contested, it is crucial that you have legal representation that is skilled in litigation and will present your case with full documentation and compelling arguments on your behalf. We are very familiar with divorce litigation, and have an extensive history of results for our clients that must have their issues resolved in court.
