Monmouth County Divorce Attorney and Mediator

Conveniently Located in Red Bank, NJ

I appreciate the time you are taking to explore and decide on the person who will work best with you. As a Monmouth County divorce attorney and mediator, I focus on family law matters in Monmouth and Ocean counties in New Jersey. Family law matters include the negotiation and mediation of issues relating to divorce and separation, custody and child support, asset and property distribution, and premarital agreements. I also offer services for real estate transactions (purchases, sales and refinances) and estate planning documents (wills, powers of attorney and advanced medical directives).

When you have a question, “as soon as possible” is the best time to get an answer. Please call Lorraine at 732-842-6939 to discuss how I can help and set up a confidential meeting. The first session is generally offered at a reduced fee. To address other commitments or health concerns, arrangements can be made for an in-person meeting, phone, or video call.

Dealing with any these is stressful especially separation and divorce and more so when children are involved. I know from going through my own divorce and years of experience as an attorney and mediator that I can offer you ways to avoid the most traumatizing option-litigation.

You say that you want an uncontested divorce. You get the exact opposite by taking a path straight to litigation. You can only have an uncontested divorce if you go to court with an agreement. If you file for divorce, maybe even hoping to reach an agreement at some point, you will be financially and emotionally strained, if not, drained before you have that agreement. For most, it will be your worst choice.

The best choice is to select the process that can help you reach the best outcome for you and your family before you file in court. No process will be easy. It will be harder, though, if you automatically select litigation that promotes anger and retaliatory tactics when another process is better for you.

Before you move forward, learn about a Collaborative Divorce Process or Mediation. In either of these, you will find the opportunity for protections and solutions for the most difficult decisions with trained professionals. You can make durable decisions with less friction and less cost…and better suited for you and your family.

My objective is to help you determine the best process for you and help you achieve your goals.
