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.

Jonathan A Kessous did an outstanding job in handling my case. He was able to get the most serious charge and several other charges against me dropped and my fine greatly reduced. I was most impressed with his professionalism.competence and the timely manner in which he responded to all my questions and concerns. This demonstrated to me that I was a priority and not just a client!

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.

Increíbly Professional and dedicated peple to the service of the Law. William Garces has to be One of the Nicest most professional lawyers I ever come across...I know not a lot of people trust lawyers but This firm will treat you with such consideration and dedication that You forget you are a Client. I would recommend this Firm to every Person I know .
