Gathering documentation.

Most legal matters involve an abundance of paperwork — documents that you provide and documents that you sign. Your New Jersey divorce attorney will direct you as to what documents need to be provided in order to support your case and will also review any agreements or contracts so you fully understand exactly what you are signing.

Asking questions.

There is no such thing as a bad question when it comes to the law. These types of cases can be complex and in some cases, the laws may be changing as you are dealing with your issue. Our New Jersey divorce lawyers work hard to stay current on changing laws and can take the time to explain all aspects of your case to you in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner.
