New Jersey Divorce Attorney

The legal process of divorce unbinds the legal ties between couples whose marriages are no longer working. Your divorce lawyer's job is to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process.

Giving You an Honest Assessment

There may be some divorce lawyers in New Jersey who tell clients exactly what they want to hear. Howard J. Pfeffer is a different kind of New Jersey divorce lawyer.

Howard believes the best way to protect yourself, your children and your property is to get an honest assessment of your case from day one so you can choose an appropriate legal strategy going forward.

A Clifton Dissolution of Marriage Lawyer Who Carefully Evaluates Every Option

An honest assessment, based on Howard's over 45 years of experience, can also help you resolve your divorce case efficiently so you can move on with your life.

There are many opportunities in the process where you and your spouse have a chance to settle the divorce, keeping your case out of court. Once you have been fully informed of your legal rights, settling the case can cut down significantly on costs without depriving you of what you deserve. In some cases, mediation can be an effective way to arrive at a final settlement of all the issues. In other cases, other approaches may be beneficial. Howard will take the time to explain and explore every option so you can work toward achieving a resolution that achieves your goals and is in your best interests.

Understanding the Issue of Divorce Grounds

Many people enter into the divorce process prepared to offer extensive testimony on the grounds for the divorce. In fact, under New Jersey family law, the grounds are not relevant to the outcome of a divorce case.

New Jersey allows divorces on the grounds of irreconcilable differences — a broad categorization — and many divorces go forward on this basis. Even if you can prove separate grounds such as adultery, this may have no bearing on alimony, property distribution or other aspects of divorce.
