Q: Hello, my name is Stacy and I need some questions answered about getting a divorce after 30 years of marriage.
I’m disabled permanently
A: Thank you for your question. As you did not specify what your questions are, my best advice is to schedule a consult with an experienced family law attorney to determine your rights and options as far as divorce is concerned. There are many factors that go into potential outcomes, such as length of marriage, income of spouse, if children are involved, etc. Many of your questions can likely be addressed during your initial consult, giving you peace of mind as you move forward in this process.
My suggestion is that you schedule a consultation with a "certified divorce & matrimonial trial lawyer by the New Jersey supreme court". Only 2% of all lawyers in NJ have met the certification requirements and are specialists in the field. Most certified matrimonial lawyers will schedule an initial divorce consultation for you for free and if you cannot travel to their office, they can arrange to speak with you over the phone or by zoom.
I dont know what special issues are presented as a result of your disability status but it needs to be addressed in a constructive way and trying to give you answers in this forum would not be responsible.
A: You made a declaratory statement, but you have not provided enough information for anyone to provide you with a meaningful answer. You really need to set up a strategy session with an experienced matrimonial attorney. With modern technology, you can be represented by any high-quality attorney in New Jersey irrespective of geography. Pick the best attorney you can find and remember one rule: a good attorney is generally never cheap, and a cheap attorney is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
