DIVORCE AND FAMILY LAW
Established in 2002, the Law Office of Jeffrey R. Brown, Esq., LLC proudly provides representation in all aspects of divorce and family law in New Jersey. While general, and hopefully helpful, information related to divorce and family law is provided on this website, every client’s needs are unique, so there is no substitute for a personal consultation to discuss the details of your particular situation.
Divorce clients usually begin the process with a great deal of anxiety and uncertainty. Common questions include “Will I have to pay alimony and for how long?” “How much alimony am I entitled to receive?” “What bills should I be paying during the divorce?” “What will happen to our house?” “Should I move out of the house while the divorce is pending?” “How will our credit card debts be divided?” The firm’s approach is to offer clients a realistic assessment of their case at the first meeting, to provide a framework as to how the process will unfold, and to put them at ease and answer all of their questions.
A divorce settlement agreement is often the most significant financial agreement a client will enter into in his or her lifetime. It is important that the client understand the ramifications and significance of that agreement, and, to that end, it is imperative that the client retain an attorney skilled and experienced in the practice of family law.
