High Net Worth Divorce

The attorneys at  Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC  understand that a high net worth  divorce with significant assets requires attention to more than the numbers on the page. Our experienced lawyers provide a comprehensive approach that balances our clients’ desire for efficient representation with their need to ensure that their assets are fairly and duly distributed.

Alimony & Spousal Support

Alimony causes tension in many divorces, but the issues may vary widely between high-income and median-income couples. Median-income couples may negotiate alimony with the intent of helping the lower-earning spouse pay basic living expenses.

Equitable Distribution of Assets & Debts

Couples who have acquired significant property and assets during their marriage need experienced legal counsel to ensure that their property is divided equitably upon divorce.

Marital Settlement Agreements

The resolution of a divorce is either negotiated between the  parties or resolved by the court. If both parties can reach an agreement on all issues, the attorneys at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC can draft a marital settlement agreement, which eliminates the need for extended litigation.

Divorce Litigation

Litigation is not an ideal means for resolving disputes during most divorces. A protracted court battle is costly, and it can leave long-lasting damage to a family’s relationships. However, not every divorce can be accomplished amicably through negotiations and mediations. If you anticipate that your divorce will inevitably result in litigation, you need an attorney with significant trial and courtroom experience to ensure that your interests are protected.

Divorce Mediation

Clients who are interested in mediation as a way of resolving their divorce or family law dispute will find qualified representation at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC. Our attorneys are experienced and accomplished family law practitioners with a track record of success in guiding clients through mediation and serving as independent mediators. Each partner at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed is a qualified mediator pursuant to New Jersey Court Rule 1:40.

Collaborative Law

Even if you do not currently agree with your spouse on all the issues in your divorce proceedings, you do not have to have an acrimonious legal battle to resolve them. For some families, collaborative divorce is a way to separate spouses’ personal and legal lives without causing further damage to the relationships in the family.

Child Custody

In many divorces, two of the most important decisions a family will make involve where the children will live and what role each parent will play in their lives. As with many aspects of the end of a marriage, the approach you and your legal counsel use when determining custody matters can significantly affect your relationships with your former spouse and your children.

Child Support

For many families, child support obligations can often be determined by applying the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines. High-income families, however, may face particular challenges in setting  child support as the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines become inapplicable.

Prenuptial Agreements

For many couples, a prenuptial agreement is a smart way to protect each partner’s individual property during marriage. The experienced attorneys at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC can provide advice and guidance to individuals who are considering such an agreement. Our attorneys are experienced at drafting agreements to protect our clients’ property.

Post-Divorce Litigation

After a divorce is finalized, former spouses may need legal counsel for a range of modifications to their divorce decree or marital settlement agreement. When clients need representation for a legal issue post divorce, the attorneys at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC will provide clients with experienced guidance.

Domestic Violence

Family law problems are complicated matters that intertwine conflicted personal relationships with their legal implications. Allegations of domestic violence in a relationship can add more complexity to your divorce or other family law dispute.

Family Law for Same-Sex Couples

Same-sex couples in New Jersey have been able to enter into civil unions since 1997. A civil union is not a marriage, but it entitles same-sex couples to many of the same rights and benefits afforded to an opposite-sex couple. There are differences, however, that require guidance from an experienced attorney when same-sex unions are being created or dissolved.

Palimony Litigation

Unmarried couples in New Jersey who live together may have specific financial rights and obligations to each other after the relationship ends. Often referred to as palimony, the rights and obligations for payment is not at the same level as for a married couple that divorces, but they do exist.

Adoption Proceedings

Knitting a family together through an adoption is often a joyful time. It can also be an intensive and contentious process.,  The attorneys at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC can guide clients through both the exciting, as well as the potentially conflict-filled parts of the process.
