Let’s Problem-Solve Your Divorce

Attorney Jay Turnbach is well-versed in all applicable New Jersey laws and familiar with all the judges who hear cases in the Ocean County family courts. He can knowledgeably address every aspect of your divorce, including:

  • Filing for divorce and temporary orders
  • Division of marital property
  • What to do with the marital residence
  • Spousal support (alimony) if applicable
  • Custody, parenting time and child support
  • Prenuptial agreements or separate property (if applicable)

New Jersey law calls for an equitable distribution of your marital estate. This includes retirement accounts, a business or professional practice, your house and other real estate, bank accounts and any other wealth accumulated during the marriage. It also refers to debts you and your spouse acquired. We help you find creative trade-offs to arrive a fair settlement that best reflects your goals and preserves your financial stability.

We’ve Got Your Back

Ideally, our guidance will help you reach an out-of-court divorce settlement, through negotiation and/or mediation. But if the other side refuses to negotiate in good faith or you simply can’t find middle ground, litigation may necessary. You are represented by a veteran trial lawyer who will come to court prepared to fight for you.

We are always here if you need legal help long after the dust settles on your divorce. We represent clients in all family law matters, including court hearings for post-divorce modifications and enforcement of spousal support, child support, child custody or parenting plans.
