Morris County Divorce Attorneys

Protecting Your Interests in the Divorce Process

Every divorce and every divorcing couple is unique. Depending on the circumstances and the parties involved, a divorce can be a businesslike matter or an emotional and hotly contested dispute.

The divorce attorneys of King & Petracca have the experience and knowledge to represent clients in all kinds of divorce, no matter how complex or how challenging the issues. We encourage clients to resolve divorce issues outside of court whenever possible. If the other party resists these efforts, you can rely on us to advocate vigorously on your behalf in court.
After listening to you describe your situation and concerns, we will:

  • Assess your situation
  • Explain the steps in the divorce process
  • Advise you of your options
  • Recommend an approach we believe is in your best interest

We are always upfront and straightforward with our clients. We will not make unrealistic promises to you, just to secure your business. Instead we will give you a realistic assessment of the likely outcome and provide an ongoing cost/benefit analysis throughout the case.

Years after the divorce, we want our clients to think of us as the people who helped them in their time of need, not the lawyers who took advantage of them when they were at their most vulnerable.


Division of Property

In the most general terms, divorce issues can be divided into:

  • Division of marital property
  • Issues of child custody, spousal support and child support

We will assist you with all facets of divorce, including property-related issues such as the division of bank accounts, retirement accounts, pensions, stocks and bonds, as well as real estate, autos, collections and other tangible assets. We have the knowledge and experience required to represent clients in high-asset divorce cases.


Morris Country Child Custody Lawyers, New Jersey Child Support Attorneys

We also assist clients in developing parenting plans and arrangements for child support, child custody and spousal support. In most cases, parents will share legal custody of their child or children. This means both parents will be involved in decisions about the child’s education, medical care and religious upbringing. Decisions about residential custody (where the child will live) and parenting time (visitation) must be resolved through negotiation, mediation or, if the parties cannot agree, litigation.

If you are seeking a Morris County divorce lawyer who can assist you with child support and child custody issues, please contact us by email or call us at 973-998-6860 to arrange an initial consultation and case evaluation.
