Need Divorce Representation in Livingston?
Compassionate, Aggressive Advocates on Your Side
One of the most challenging aspects of divorce is that, legally, there is never just one, single matter to resolve between spouses. Even some of the most amicable spouses will learn that a surprising number of matters need to be resolved before dissolving their marriage to their partner. In doing so, unforeseen complications can arise and prevent either party from receiving the terms and assets they deserve.

Collaborative Divorce in New Jersey
A collaborative divorce offers parties a non-adversarial, team-oriented, structured alternative for resolution of even the most complex matrimonial dissolution, child custody, and parenting time matters. While collaborative divorce is not for everyone, for some, it is a wonderful alternative to the traditional means of litigation.
What is the Collaborative Divorce Process?
Unlike the traditional, Court-driven divorce process, the collaborative process is client-centered and offers a solutions-oriented means of resolving familial, parenting and financial related issues. All members of the parties’ “team” share the same end goal, which is to facilitate a dissolution process that will meet the unique goals and objectives of each family. Some unique aspects of the collaborative divorce process include:
- Each party’s counsel must undergo strict and specialized training in order to be considered a collaboratively trained professional.
- Other team members such as a mental health professional, coach, child specialist, forensic expert, or any combination thereof are included in the process.
- Parties wishing to pursue the collaborative divorce process sign a Participation Agreement, which underscores that the collaborative process will end if either party files a Complaint for Divorce, or seeks to pursue traditional means of litigation.
- However, should a party wish to terminate the collaborative process, neither individual is permitted to hire any lawyer, or law firm, that represented them in the collaborative process.
The philosophy behind collaborative divorce in New Jersey is to keep parties invested in the commitment they have made to resolve their matter outside the bounds of the Courtroom. As with all matters, there is a wide range of variables that influence the success of a collaborative process. As such, it is best to consult with a collaboratively trained professional to best assess the variables in your case.
