Divorce Litigation

A divorce can have a more lasting and permanent impact on you and your family for the rest of your lives than the marriage itself did. It is of the utmost importance to approach the divorce with knowledge of the process and with an advocate on your side.

The divorce process can seem intimidating but our lawyers at Garces, Grabler, and LeBrocq are here to be your fierce advocate to make you feel confident every step of the way. Whether it be a simple divorce with the only goal being to dissolve the marriage, or a complex divorce involving custody disputes and dissipation of major assets, or anything in between, we are here to be your advocate and guide.

In New Jersey it is important to understand that there is no such thing is a “legal separation”. If parties who are living separate and apart want to legally end their marriage, a divorce is necessary. There are 9 different grounds (reasons) to file for divorce in New Jersey, but except for in certain Immigration situations, the grounds for divorce itself are not highly relevant to the divorce process. That is to say the Court is not much interested in why you are filing divorce, just in what issues need to be resolved during your case.

After the initial divorce complaint and accompanying paperwork are filed, the other party gets 35 days to respond. After that, the Court schedules and Conducts a Case Management Conference to address the issues the case presents (ie: Custody, alimony, child support, equitable distribution of marital property, etc) which will set forth a schedule for how the case will proceed.

Most divorce cases ultimately are resolved through settlement, and our lawyers Garces, Grabler, and LeBrocq are highly skilled trained negotiators to assist you in obtaining the most favorable settlement possible. We also recognize that, in certain circumstances, settlement is not possible or advisable, and are prepared to go to trial when it is necessary for a Judge to make decisions.

Robert White III, Esq. was professional and efficient in every step of the process. From dealing with my Worker's Comp insurance to making sure I got the best care with a skilled neurosurgeon and making sure my case was handled fairly by a judge and the court system. I would definitely recommend Garces, Grabler and LeBrocq for anyone who was in need of representation for such matters.

My uncle had some problems with meals at a Monmouth Count assisted living home. The home charged over $5,000 per month and he was not being offered food that he liked on many occasions and his complaints did not resolve the issue. I called Garces & Grabler on his behalf and they sent an attorney to the home to first speak with my uncle, then speak with the director. Within a few day, his dietary needs were met. Everything was resolved amicably and the law firm charged, in my opinion, a very reasonable fee for their services.

I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.

I was very impressed with the professionalism and quick turn-around time from all the participants from GGL that assisted me. I would like to especially thank my attorney Jonathan Kessous. His credentials are very notable he is one of four attorneys throughout the entire state of NJ certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Trial Specialist in both Criminal and Municipal Court Law matters. My case was very serious and could have resulted in jail time or suspension of my license. Jonathan was able to resolve my case very favorably. I am extremely thankful for his assistance. I would also like to recognize and thank his Paralegal Jasmin Caba and his Personal Assistant Marianne Crisitello for their assistance in communicating and preparing me for my trial. They are a great team and I would highly recommend them.

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!
