At the Davis Law Firm, LLC, we take the time to get to know our clients personally so that we can formulate creative and personalized solutions that will best accomplish their goals for the future.

We strive to reach an agreement that can avoid the time, expense and emotional trauma of litigating issues relating to divorce in family court. In many cases, we can resolve contested issues through the mediation process, where a neutral third party hears each party’s case and makes suggestions as to how the issues could be resolved.
Other parties prefer the more binding approach of arbitration, where the neutral third party’s resolution of the case is binding on all parties.

Frequently Asked Questions About Mercer County Divorce
The impact of a prenuptial agreement will depend upon the specific contents of the agreement itself. Prenuptial agreements can govern the final disposition of all assets and can also specify one party’s rights to alimony or spousal support. Most prenuptial agreements will be enforceable, but in some cases, we can argue to have the agreement disregarded if your rights were violated when the agreement was signed. New Jersey law requires that both parties to the prenuptial agreement fully disclose all of their assets and retain independent legal counsel before executing the agreement. The prenuptial agreement must also be voluntarily entered into in order to be enforceable in New Jersey.
Before filing for divorce, you should consider the reality of the situation—your assets will be divided between you and your spouse, and there is a possibility that you will not be able to keep your family home. Asset division depends upon the circumstances of the case, but you should begin to evaluate which assets are most important to you, and which you might be willing to part with in negotiations. Your parenting time with your children will also likely be divided, so you should similarly begin to consider whether there are any times of the year that you would most like to be with your children—keeping in mind that, in some cases, the child’s other parent will have fairly equal time with the child. Gathering financial documents and other information can also help smooth the divorce process—this includes paystubs, retirement account statements, bank statements, and other documentation relating to financial investments and property ownership.
