Divorce and family law have become increasingly complex in handling various domestic situations and potential legal problems. Clients who find themselves navigating the family courts of New Jersey and New York undergo phases of emotional upheaval. The family lawyer’s job is to know the law, understand and counsel clients on the consequences of several strategies, and advise them when it’s best to settle, continue litigating in courts, or seek an arbitrator.
One party in a family law dispute is often in a better financial bargaining position than the other. In those cases, the disadvantaged client must obtain proper advice and counsel to protect them and level the playing field. It’s always a goal to resolve family law disputes as amicably as possible. We often counsel clients to try mediation with a qualified family law attorney-mediator first for a cost-effective resolution to a family law dispute. However, even when attending mediation to resolve their issues, it benefits both parties to retain separate counsel. Each needs to be comfortable with the mediation solutions being discussed and feel the outcome is in their best interest, especially where children are concerned.
