Serving Bridgewater, Hillsborough, Bedminster, Basking Ridge, Warren and the surrounding Communities
I am proud that many of my new divorce and family law clients are referrals from past clients who were satisfied with the manner in which I handled their cases. These past clients have told their friends to contact the Law Offices of Leonard A. Weitzman, LLC, because they recognize my ability to effectively support an individual and navigate through the complicated and stressful process of marital dissolution.
I am ready to discuss your divorce with you at my office in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Email or call (908) 458-9098 today to arrange a meeting.
Setting Realistic Expectations
As you prepare for the end of your marriage, you no doubt have many questions: How will this affect my children? What are my options? Will I have to pay a lot of money in alimony, and how can I afford it? How much child support will be involved? What if I want to move away? Will I get to see my children?
In discussing your impending divorce, I will always encourage you to be realistic and spend your resources on issues that are worth the time, money and effort. At the Law Offices of Leonard A. Weitzman, LLC, I will provide you honest answers to your questions, whether they concern:
- What to expect at an initial consultation with a lawyer
- Divorce financial planning
- High-asset divorce
- Child custody and child support
- College tuition
- Division of property
- Alimony and spousal support determinations and modifications
- Prenuptial agreements
- Dissolution of domestic partnerships
Court-Imposed Mediation and Early Settlement Panels
New Jersey courts mandate certain mediation procedures to attempt to obviate the need for a more expensive trial. An Early Settlement Panel is established after the completion of discovery. During this procedure, your case is presented to experienced attorneys who review the case and make suggestions as to the best way to resolve it and come to a divorce agreement. This is provided as a service of the court.
If after the Early Settlement Panel the parties are unable to resolve their differences, they are required to participate in mandatory economic mediation. If this mediation is not successful, the case is scheduled for trial.
As your divorce attorney, I will participate in the entire court-imposed mediation process. While I do not serve as a central intermediary, I will represent you through these proceedings and ensure that your interests and concerns are clearly expressed and totally protected.
Serving Clients of Varied Backgrounds
I have the ability to resolve matrimonial cases for clients with small amounts of property as well as those with substantial holdings, and for those with many children, children from previous relationships and no children. I will give you advice on any issue that arises, from the division of assets and debts to child custody to enforcing or challenging prenuptial agreements. You can rely on me to guide you through the process step by step.
