Overview / Divorce
There is nothing more personal or important than your family and your future when a marriage is ending. The attorneys at Dennigan Cahill, LLC, know that the major decisions you make now – or those a court makes for you – will have lasting effects. We help to educate clients about divorce law, and work to protect their interests.
Separating finances, selling or keeping your home, joint or sole custody of your children, debt division, parenting time and visitation, alimony, spousal support, college expenses, retirement accounts — these are just a few of the legal issues that will determine your ability to build your future. Centrally located in Princeton’s Forrestal Village on Route 1, we represent individuals living in Mercer, Middlesex, Burlington and Somerset Counties, and use our expertise and experience to assist our clients in reaching a favorable settlement of all the issues involved in their case.
Although conflicts arise in every divorce, in terms of the process, we represent clients in court-litigated divorces and out-of-court settlements, as well as disputes after divorce (post-judgment). Litigated matters typically begin with the filing of a divorce complaint, and require a judge to decide the outstanding issues. Out-of-court settlements typically begin with settlement negotiations, mediation or collaborative practice. We strive for an amicable resolution of matrimonial issues. It is in the family’s best interest from both an emotional and a financial perspective.
In addition to divorces, and disputes after the divorce (post-judgment) such as college expenses, cohabitation and termination of alimony, moving out of state with children (removal), etc., we also represent individuals before family court judges for restraining orders in matters of domestic violence.
We are mindful of the cost of divorce to individuals. We will always recommend the most cost efficient manner of handling your case in light of your desires, and we have experience in methods that help contain counsel fees without compromising your rights.
Our attorneys are often called-upon by other attorneys and divorcing spouses to act as a neutral mediator in a divorce. In this circumstance, we work closely with the parties to bring the family law matter to an agreement, and draft a document called a memorandum of understanding.
