Compassionate Family Law Attorneys Guide Spouses through the Divorce Process in West New York, NJ

Although few if any couples get married with the expectation of ultimately getting divorced, it is an unfortunate reality that people grow and change over time, and eventually a married couple may realize that their marriage has come to an end. However, even if spouses both acknowledge that they should get divorced, it doesn’t necessarily make the process easier. Many divorcing couples have numerous financial and personal issues that need to be resolved before a final judgment of divorce can be issued by a court. Resolving these issues can be complex, contentious, and time-consuming, even for a couple that has agreed to part ways. Issues like child custody or equitable division of property can inject a great deal of emotion into a divorce proceeding.

About West New York, NJ

West New York is a town located in northern Hudson County, New Jersey. Founded at the turn of the 20th century, West New York was part of Hudson County’s booming embroidery industry in the first half of the 20th century. In the mid-1900s, an influx of Cuban immigrants made West New York one of the largest Hispanic communities in the country. Continued rapid population growth has today made West New York one of the most densely populated communities in the U.S., with the formerly-industrial Hudson waterfront area redeveloped for residential and recreational uses.

Frequently Asked Questions about Divorce in West New York, NJ

FAQ: If my spouse wants to get divorced but I don’t, will he or she have to pay my legal fees and costs?

You are not entitled to have your spouse pay for your legal expenses simply because your spouse was the one demanding a divorce. Instead, there are laws and court rules that govern whether one spouse may be entitled to reimbursement of legal costs from the other spouse. In addition, “fault” for the divorce cannot be used as a basis to award the other spouse reimbursement for the costs and expenses of the divorce.

FAQ: If I received a large inheritance prior to my divorce, will I have to split it with my spouse?

Not necessarily. In equitable distribution during divorce, the court will only divide the marital assets and liabilities. Inheritances are generally considered to be “separate” property not subject to equitable distribution. However, it is possible to convert separate property such as an inheritance into marital property subject to equitable distribution, such as if you used your inheritance as a down payment for the marital home.
