What to Expect

Coming to terms with separating from your spouse is difficult. Even setting aside your feelings about the separation, the stress of determining a mutually agreeable plan between parties can be overwhelming. Depending on your unique situation, you may be responsible for spousal support, which can place a burden on your finances. You also may be entitled to receive spousal support.

It is important to plan for a number of changes during the timeline of your case. The help of a knowledgeable family law attorney such as Jeffrey W. Goldblatt can lessen the burden of the challenges that stand before you.

Traditional Litigation

Divorce is a court-sanctioned dissolution of marriage. A variety of issues can arise during the process, which can complicate all the related matters. When the separating parties are unable to agree on how to resolve matters, the court will enter orders outlining the details of the outcome. This can include alimony payments, child support obligation, and child custody. Assets and other property interests are divided first. Then, the court will order that any debts the parties have acquired be paid by one party or the other. Alternatively, they may order that the debt be separated by dollar amount.

The Law Offices of Jeffrey W. Goldblatt Esq., in East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey can help you understand what to expect during the proceedings. As your lawyer, Mr. Goldblatt will be by your side during every step and can help answer any questions you may have along the way.

Options Outside Traditional Divorce

Proceedings do not have to involve a lengthy courtroom battle between lawyers dueling over property division and child custody. If you and your spouse are in mutual agreement about your separation, you may be able to take advantage of the recent innovations in family law that allow for more cooperative options outside of traditional litigation. Jeffrey W. Goldblatt can help you with an uncontested, collaborative, or mediated divorce.


You may have heard the phrases "contested" and "uncontested divorce", and wondered what the differences are between the two. 

Just because you and your spouse agree on getting a divorce does not mean you can have an uncontested case. Oftentimes, couples who think they have an uncontested divorce are actually contested. In an uncontested case, the parties agree on all issues involved in a final settlement. In other words, you and your spouse must be in absolute agreement on property division, child custody, child support, and any other issues.

If you do qualify for an uncontested divorce, you will need an attorney to prepare and finalize the settlement agreement. Trial can be avoided using mediation or arbitration, both of which Jeffrey W. Goldblatt can help you with.

It is important to speak with an attorney knowledgeable in family law matters in order to determine if your divorce is uncontested. Divorce attorney Jeffrey W. Goldblatt in East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey, represents clients involved in both types of divorce. As your lawyer, Mr. Goldblatt can look at the specific circumstances of your situation and determine if you qualify for an uncontested divorce.


Collaboration is an alternative to a contentious trial that can not only save time and money, but can also work to create or preserve an amicable relationship with your spouse. Collaborative law may be the answer for couples willing to negotiate the terms of their separation in an alternative forum. If it is a viable option for you and spouse, attorney Jeffrey W. Goldblatt in East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey can help guide you through the process.

Collaborative law is a relatively new way of handling the legal issues raised during this time. In a collaborative divorce, the separating couple must agree to resolve their differences through negotiation. They must be motivated to resolve issues without resorting to the court and each spouse is asked to pledge not to proceed to trial

Each party is represented by an attorney of their own choosing. Parties then meet to negotiate an agreement that will be presented to the court to become legally binding. The agreement addresses all issues, including division of marital property, child custody, parenting time, and child support. If needed, other professionals, such as mental health and financial professionals, may offer suggestions in regard to complicated issues.


Mediation is an alternative to traditional litigation. Rather than each party retaining an lawyer in preparation for a prolonged legal battle or negotiation, the parties agree to pursue a resolution of their issues by selecting an individual to act as a neutral third party. This third party can provide guidance in order to reach a settlement of all contested issues.

Family law attorney Jeffrey W. Goldblatt is qualified by the Supreme Court of the State of New Jersey to act as a mediator. Mr. Goldblatt has successfully mediated cases involving simple and complicated issues related to child custody, child support, and post-judgment issues. 

The mediator does not act like a judge and cannot make binding decisions. Based upon Mr. Goldblatt's long history representing spouses as a divorce lawyer, he is able to guide the parties through the process calmly and thoroughly. He can provide information about how much sense a proposed resolution makes, as well as predict how a judge might view a case if it were to be tried in open court. 

However, mediation is not always a viable option. If there has been a history of domestic violence, Mr. Goldblatt will recommend traditional divorce options so as to ensure that one party is not being intimidated or manipulated by the other. 

A Mutually Beneficial Resolution

If you are able to utilize any of these alternative options to traditional litigation, attorney Jeffrey W. Goldblatt will facilitate a dialogue between the parties and promote a congenial atmosphere where the divorcing couple is able to discuss differences and reach a resolution that is beneficial for both parties as well as their children.
