No-Fault Divorce

New Jersey is a no-fault divorce state. This means that you don't have to prove anyone is at fault in order to obtain a divorce. You can choose to maintain family and privacy.

Division of Property

One step in the divorce process is the division of marital assets, such as real estate, bank accounts, investments, pensions, IRAs, 401ks and other retirement assets, personal property and business interests. Not all assets are always obvious or disclosed. For those and other reasons, you should consult with the experienced New Jersey divorce attorneys at our firm, regarding complex issues including valuation, division and distribution of:

  • Retirement assets — Pension plans, 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans and IRA accounts
  • Investments — Securities, stocks and stock options, investments, bonds, mutual funds as well as other portfolio holdings
  • Real property — Your home, vacation homes, timeshares, investment properties, land and other real estate
  • Personal property — Jewelry, artwork, cars and other tangible property acquired during the marriage
  • Complex professional and business interests
  • Debts and liabilities

Often mortgages, home equity lines of credit, auto loans, charge accounts/credit cards and other liabilities need to be addressed and allocated.Here at Lane & Lane, LLC we will focus on a fair and equitable allocation of all such liabilities.

Alimony

There is no exact formula in determining alimony, which is also known as spousal support. Generally, alimony consideration includes, among other factors, duration of the marriage, each party's capacity to earn, child-rearing responsibilities, time away from the job market, earnings and potential earnings and the standard of living during the marriage. You should consult with one of our experienced attorneys if you believe alimony should be a part of your divorce agreement.

Lane, Esq. serves as a Court appointed mediator.We can help facilitate a fair and supportive resolution of these issues as quickly as possible consistent with your children's best interests.
