A family law dispute, such as a complex divorce, can be one of the most emotional and stressful events of your life. Megan S. Murray is a detail-oriented family lawyer who takes pride in assisting clients through their difficult moments by providing personalized legal counsel and fearless representation in and out of the courtroom.
Our attorneys at The Family Law Offices of Megan S. Murray are experienced in helping clients navigate family law concerns and the complex legal aspects of their divorce. Located in Holmdel, NJ, we provide legal counsel to clients located throughout Monmouth County, Middlesex County, Ocean County, and all New Jersey counties and townships.
To begin the divorce process, one party must file a Complaint for Divorce. New Jersey is a no-fault divorce state, which means that the filing spouse is not required to cite a precise reason for the divorce, although they may do so for reasons such as addiction or adultery. Once the divorce papers have been served to the other party, a judge will review the case to determine whether there are any contested issues.
If spouses do disagree on certain terms of their divorce, such as child custody, child support, alimony, or the division of property, the court will require that the case be seen by a team of attorneys who make recommendations regarding the disputed items. If the spouses still have disagreements, the case will go to trial where a court will litigate the remaining contested issues.
Every state sets its own family law and divorce statutes, and New Jersey is no different, so it is important to have a family lawyer skilled in the laws of your state. Our attorneys have many years of experience practicing family law in the state of New Jersey, and we are committed to using that experience to empower our clients with confidence and knowledge throughout the legal process.
Whether it is a contested divorce, child custody issue, child support or alimony dispute, high net worth case, or complex equitable distribution concern, we want our clients to be prepared for each step of the legal process. We understand how the law applies to your unique circumstances, and we will work with you to secure a favorable outcome in your family law matter.
