Cherry Hill Divorce Settlement Attorney
Will your Marital Property Settlement be Fair?
Your divorce isn’t about the money. It’s about your future. Will your property settlement be fair? Will your financial interests be protected?
No Going Back — We get your Property Settlement Right the First time
At Begelman & Orlow, P. C., we know how important it is to ensure that you receive an equitable distribution of marital property. Under New Jersey law, revisiting and readjusting a property settlement in later years will be nearly impossible, unless you can prove fraud or hidden assets on the part of your ex-spouse. That’s why it’s so important to get things correct now. We work with a network of independent financial professionals to ensure that all assets are accounted for and the property valuation is accurate.
“New Jersey is not a community property state. By statute, a judge will determine an equitable distribution of assets acquired during your marriage. Once a judgment is made, it’s generally final. We have the experience and professional resources to make sure your financial interests are protected.”
We have experience handling property settlements involving:
- High asset settlements and property division
- Long-term co-habitation agreements
- Income valuation and hidden income
- Real estate valuation
- Business property
- Pensions, 401(k) plans, retirement accounts
- Personal property
- Property protected by premarital agreements
- Bonus pay, stock options, deferred compensation
- Overseas holdings
Litigation or settlement
Attorney leads our team of family law professionals. He serves as an appointed member of the Matrimonial Early Settlement Panel, where he advises divorcing couples on issues relating to how a family court judge would rule in their marital property dispute.
We always try to find a settlement proposal that is fair and acceptable to both parties. Our experience has taught us, however, that ex-spouses and their attorneys don’t always care about playing fair. We prepare every settlement proposal to win a fair judgment in a trial. Using our courtroom experience is the only way to ensure the other party will take our offer of equitable distribution seriously.
Long-Term Co-Habitation Agreements
If you have been involved in a long-term co-habitation relationship, the law says you may be entitled to share in an equal distribution of property and assets, just as if a marriage had taken place. Talk to us about your specific circumstances.
