Monmouth County Divorce Attorney
Divorce Without Litigation
The decision to divorce is difficult. Before you select a process that makes it even more painful, you owe it to yourself to explore all options as to how to divorce in Monmouth and Ocean counties. Many people assume that they need a judge to make all the decisions for them. In reality only about one in every ten cases ever goes to trial. The rest are the result of an agreement by the parties. So why take the path of preparing for a trial that doesn’t happen? Before you commence divorce litigation, explore an alternative out-of-court process such as collaborative divorce or mediation. It is crucial to get information about your divorce alternatives as early as possible to consider all options available to you and the best fit for you, your family, and finances. If you are considering divorce and would like to learn more about collaborative divorce or mediation, please contact Monmouth County divorce attorney Anna-Maria Pittella at 732-842-6939.
