Westfield is a town located in Union County, New Jersey. Westfield gets its name from the area being referred to as “fields west of Elizabeth”. One of New Jersey’s higher-income communities, Westfield is a largely suburban community that also features a downtown area with hundreds of retail and commercial businesses that serve as a regional destination and also where Westfield holds numerous events and festivals throughout the year.
In New Jersey, most divorces are supposed to be resolved within 12 months of filing, unless the case involves complex assets or business ownership interests. However, if spouses are able to resolve the issues in their divorce via a negotiated or mediated settlement agreement prior to filing for divorce, it can be possible to get a final judgment of divorce as soon as you are able to get a hearing date before the court to review and accept your and your spouse’s agreement.
Although you and your spouse can choose an attorney to serve as a neutral mediator if you are trying to negotiate a settlement agreement, you and your spouse cannot use the same attorney to provide both of you with legal advice and representation. This is because you and your spouse are technically adverse parties in your divorce, and ethical rules prohibit attorneys from simultaneously representing adverse parties in a case. An attorney owes a duty of loyalty to his or her client, which is a duty that cannot be fulfilled as divorcing spouses have interests that necessarily conflict with one another.
