Somerset Divorce Lawyer Protects the Rights of Spouses

Accomplished New Jersey attorney provides comprehensive support

Divorce is a stressful time for you and your family, so it is crucial that you retain an accomplished lawyer who will guide you in a calm, professional manner. At the Law Offices of Kisha M. Hebbon, LLC in Somerset, we have assisted New Jersey spouses since 2005. No matter what specific issues are involved, attorney Kisha Hebbon has the knowledge and experience to safeguard your immediate and long-term interests. Our firm works closely with clients and ensures their comfort during a difficult time. We offer comprehensive support so that important decisions are made on based on solid information rather than emotional impulses.

Dedicated adviser guides clients through the divorce process

Most people mistakenly believe that it takes a “barracuda” or “bulldog” type of attorney to “win” their divorce case. The reality of matrimonial law is that the lives of both spouses will change, and unnecessary conflict often makes things worse. The key is to have a divorce attorney who is a strong advocate, knows the law, and explains how it applies to your case. We will make sure that you understand issues such as:

  • Grounds — In New Jersey, you can dissolve your marriage on no-fault grounds or by alleging that your partner has engaged in some sort of marital misconduct, such as adultery or cruelty. We will review the circumstances and suggest which option works best for you.
  • Spousal support — Changes to New Jersey alimony law in the past few years have drastically altered what former spouses can expect in financial support after a divorce. Our firm will evaluate your circumstances and tell you what you can expect.
  • Uncontested divorce — If you and your spouse agree on custody, property and alimony arrangements, our firm can reduce the time, expense and stress associated with your divorce. You might be able to move through the legal process quickly if your union lasted fewer than five years.
  • Child custody — Nothing is more important than setting appropriate child custody arrangements. We work to reach agreement on questions relating to parenting time, residence, and legal authority. If this cannot be accomplished, our firm has significant experience handling these types of cases in court, including matters where we have successfully enforced fathers’ rights. Our accomplished family law firm is up-front and honest with clients. In every case, our goal is to ensure that you emerge from the divorce process with your emotional and financial health intact.

Knowledgeable advocate works to establish fair property division terms

Marital assets and debts are not necessarily divided equally in New Jersey when a couple divorces, so hiring a skilled advocate is very important. In many cases, my firm can work out a fair arrangement that gives you the strong financial foundation you need to move head. If an agreement cannot be reached, under the state’s equitable distribution standard, the court determines what it believes to be a fair allocation based on a variety of factors. These can include the age, health and earning ability of each spouse, the duration of the marriage, and the couple’s standard of living. A key question often relates to whether specific assets are properly classified as marital property. Separate property includes items accumulated before the marriage and inheritances left to one of the parties.
