When a family faces a separation, coming to terms with the changes presented can be difficult for all parties involved. Working out the details of a mutually agreeable plan between spouses can be stressful and leave you feeling overwhelmed. The help of a dedicated divorce attorney from the Law Offices of Jeffrey W. Goldblatt, Esq. with offices in East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey, can be invaluable.

The law firm of Mr. Goldblatt can review your unique case and explain all viable options available to you. Depending on your relationship with your spouse, you may seek traditional litigation, mediation, or collaborative divorce. If you are able to take advantage of the collaborative process, you can save significant time, cost, and stress over traditional litigation procedures. Regardless of the path you take, Jeffrey W. Goldblatt believes in finding a quick and successful resolution whenever possible.

Types of Divorce Traditional or Collaborative

Traditional Litigation

According to New Jersey law, divorces can be granted on a no-fault basis. In other words, neither spouse is obligated to prove the other is at fault for the marriage ending. This means if one spouse wants a divorce and files the necessary paperwork, the court will likely grant the request. This can be a sensitive family law issue, especially if one spouse does not want a divorce. As your divorce attorney, Jeffrey W. Goldblatt can ease the burden imposed by divorce proceedings at every step of the way.

Collaborative Law

Parting ways with your spouse does not necessarily mean you have a lengthy court battle in your future. Collaborative divorce is an alternative for couples willing to negotiate the terms of their separation in a more cooperative forum. Jeffrey W. Goldblatt has guided clients through divorces of all shapes and sizes. His legal history has led him to believe that ending a marriage through collaborative law is often in the best interest of everyone involved.

Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce can save a separating couple time, cost, and anxiety. Oftentimes, though, clients mistakenly think they have an uncontested case when they actually do not. To qualify, you and your spouse need to be in absolute agreement on all outstanding legal issues. This means there cannot be any disagreement between you and your spouse on even complicated questions, such as property division and child custody.

If you are able to move forward with an uncontested case, you will still need a family law attorney to prepare and finalize the settlement agreement. In doing so, you can often avoid going to trial by using mediation or arbitration. In East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, New Jersey, attorney Jeffrey W. Goldblatt can help determine if your separation meets the criteria for an uncontested divorce.


If you and your spouse are motivated to amicably resolve your differences, mediation offers numerous benefits over traditional litigation. During mediation, the parties agree to pursue a resolution of their issues by selecting an individual to act as a neutral third party who can provide guidance so that they can reach a settlement. Mr. Goldblatt is qualified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey to act as a mediator and can help provide solutions to your family law matters during the mediation procedure. 

During the mediation process, Mr. Goldblatt will explore all the disputed issues between the parties in private, confidential sessions in strict accordance with New Jersey law. Child custody, parenting time and visitation, alimony, and equitable distribution of assets and liabilities will be addressed and negotiated between the parties. The mediator does not act in the capacity of representation of either party, but provides guidance in reaching a settlement of all contested issues. 

Family law attorney Jeffrey W. Goldblatt provides the communities of East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall compassionate and effective representation. Mr. Goldblatt has successfully mediated cases involving both simple and intricate issues related to all aspects of family law. He can help you facilitate a dialogue between you and your partner to promote a congenial atmosphere where you are able to discuss any differences and reach a mutually beneficial outcome.

Mr. Goldblatt provided calm, steady guidance during the most trying of life events.  I can't imagine having gone through it with any other attorney.  Not only did he provide expert, sound legal advice, but he instilled the will within to fight back against an arrogant, egocentric adversary.  It is now quite amazing to have control of my life back, which I don't think would  have happened without his help.  Me and my daughter's lives will be all the better for it.
