Bergen County Contested Divorce Lawyer
When people have few assets other than a house and car, agree about money and children, and want to get things over, a divorce can be finalized quickly. However, when divorce proceedings involve significant assets and arguments over children, the process can be long and difficult.
At our New Jersey law office, Bergen County attorney Jeffrey M. Bloom helps clients entangled in a contested divorce get through the process. We do this in a way that protects clients' interests and allows them to move ahead with their lives after the divorce is finalized. To learn how our experienced attorney can help in cases of contested divorce, contact our West New York and Ridgewood, New Jersey, attorney at the Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Bloom. We serve clients in Hudson County, Bergen County and across North Jersey.
Although almost anything can arise during a contested divorce, the most common issues that complicate divorce proceedings include:
- The existence of a prenuptial agreement
- The existence of closely held businesses
- Division of pensions through a QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Order)
- The presence of special needs children
- The presence of children from a former marriage
- Significant amounts of property such as real estate, art, antiques, stocks, pensions, and financial instruments
All of these things can complicate the process of divorce. The value and ownership of the businesses and other assets can be difficult to determine. The other spouse may be hiding assets in the business. A prenuptial agreement may be ruled unenforceable by the courts. Spouses may disagree about the cost of caring for a special needs child. Arguments over matters such as these make a divorce difficult.
Our Bergen County family law lawyer consults with forensic accounts to determine if assets are being hidden. The firm uses the services of child psychiatrists to determine the arrangements that might be in the best interests of the children. We use business appraisers and other specialists to value assets to help arrive at an equitable property division.
