Divorce Lawyer

Sometimes, ending your marriage is the best way to move forward with your life, but this area of family law can be difficult to navigate on your own.

An attorney can guide you through the divorce process, ensuring the best possible outcome for yourself and your children. 

Let our divorce lawyer at Law Offices of Adam C Brown Esq. PC, serving all of Middlesex County, NJ, help you shape your future.

Filing for Divorce

In the state of New Jersey, either partner in a marriage, civil union, or domestic partnership can file for divorce as long as at least one party resides in the state. You can file for a fault-based or no-fault divorce, but when filing, you must be able to state a reason, or grounds, for the divorce.

Fault Divorce

In a fault divorce claim, one party alleges that the actions of the other necessitate the end of the marriage. These claims must be proven and often lengthen the divorce process.

  • Adultery
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug/alcohol addiction
  • Deviant sexual behavior
  • Mental illness (confinement for 24+ months)
  • Desertion from the marital residence for 12+ months
  • Conviction of a crime (imprisonment for 18+ months)

No-Fault Divorce

In New Jersey, irreconcilable differences are a good enough reason for divorce. To file for divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences, you must meet several requirements:

  • You or your spouse must have lived in New Jersey for 12 consecutive months.
  • You or your spouse must have experienced irreconcilable differences for six months.
  • The irreconcilable differences are a reason your partnership should be dissolved.
  • There is no way to reconcile.

Uncontested vs. Contested Divorce

In an uncontested divorce, the issues requiring resolution are agreed upon by both parties and mediation might offer a viable solution. There is no need to present conflicting points of view and supporting evidence to the court; you simply have to submit an agreement to the terms.

However, things are rarely this straightforward when children and assets are involved. A contested divorce occurs when you and your former spouse are unable to agree on an issue like custody, child support, parenting time, or equitable distribution. A divorce lawyer can help you settle as many issues as possible rather than having a judge decide for you, resulting in an outcome that no one is happy with.

Even if you think you and your former spouse agree on all issues relating to your divorce, it's a good idea to consult a divorce lawyer. Our attorney can review your family law case, identify potential difficulties, and determine a path forward that results in the best possible outcome.

"The perfect choice to handle my divorce."

From the very beginning Adam was the perfect choice to handle my divorce. I had no idea what to expect during this difficult time but Adam truly took my needs into consideration. Whenever we went to court, he would receive compliments from the judge about how organized and succinct he was. Also, he made sure to explain important details to me along the way. Having Adam represent me took so much weight off my shoulders and I would recommend him 1,000x over.

How Adam Brown Can Help in Every Aspect of Your Divorce

Divorce can become contentious, especially when children, assets, your quality of life, or your safety are on the line. Our Middlesex County lawyer provides well-rounded services from our offices in New Brunswick and Moorestown and can help with your divorce and related concerns.


The state of New Jersey recommends retaining the services of a divorce lawyer when ending a marriage. While you can represent yourself in court, it is advisable to have an attorney on your side give yourself the best chance of a favorable outcome.

Asset Division

New Jersey is an equitable distribution state but makes no guarantee for a 50/50 split of assets like property, household possessions, and money. Instead, the courts will determine a fair distribution of your assets by considering your individual contributions, the length of your marriage, tax implications, children, and more. An attorney well-versed in family law can help you retain as many marital assets as possible.

Ask Us About Asset Division


Alimony is a sum of money paid to the lesser-earning spouse after the dissolution of a marriage to maintain their quality of life. The length of the marriage, earning capacity of both parties, and other factors are taken into consideration when determining alimony. Our lawyer can help you secure fair alimony or make modifications to your payments when hardships arise.

Child Custody

If you and your ex have children, our Middlesex County attorney can help determine a child custody agreement that serves your children's best interests. Ideally, you and your ex will be able to work things out so joint custody can allow for a co-parenting situation. If things are complicated, our lawyer can help you file for sole custody to ensure your children grow up in a healthy environment.

Explore Child Custody

Child Support

Both parents are financially responsible for their children, even in cases of divorce. If you are the custodial parent (the parent the children primarily live with), child support will likely be awarded to you to help pay for your child's education, medical care, food, shelter, and other necessities. Our lawyer can help you obtain fair child support or make modifications to your payments.

Explore Child Support

Restraining Orders

If there was cruelty or violence in your marriage, our attorney can help you file a restraining order to keep your abusive ex away from yourself and your children. Our lawyer helps victims of domestic violence and those who have been accused of abuse.

Awesome Lawyer. He represented us for a family case. Prior to Mr. Brown, we had many failed attempts and years of back and forth hearings. Once we hired Mr. Brown we were able to resolve the case in our favor within 4 months time. I’m so glad we hired him and will be keeping him on retainer and referring him to others. If you want someone who will go to bat for you and stand for you, Mr. Brown is the right choice.
