Hunterdon County Divorce Lawyers help client avoid paying pendente lite alimony

P.S. Hunterdon County Divorce Lawyers

In this case, the husband filed a pendente lite motion against our client, the wife in Hunterdon County Superior Court (Flemington).  In a rare case, he was seeking pendente lite alimony from her.  Our Hunterdon County Divorce Lawyers fought hard against the motion.  We argued that the husband, who is self employed, is capable of making more money and that he has a high number of “write offs” that reduce his income.  In addition, we argued that our client’s income fluctuates and that the status quo has been that the wife has not supported the family.  Finally, we argued that the status quo for 2 years has been that the each party has supported themselves without contribution from the other party.  As a result, the court’s order for unallocated support was the equivalent of child support which our client clearly owed.  Thus, our lawyers effectively defeated the husband’s motion for pendente lite spousal support.  This was a great victory that helped in the settlement negotiations.

Ocean County Divorce Lawyers helps client avoid paying counsel fees to wife

D.A. Ocean County Divorce Case

In this Ocean County Divorce Case, the wife’s attorney filed a motion to have our client pay $5,000 in counsel fees.  She argued that our divorce lawyers have been dragging out the case and not working on a settlement.  Nothing can be farther than the truth.  Despite the wife not producing discovery prior to ESP, the ESP panelist sided with us.  Our lawyers advised the client to accept the ESP recommendation and he was prepared to do so.  The wife however, was not ready to accept it.  Thus, we fought hard against the motion and called it for what it was: frivolous.  As a result, the motion for counsel fees was denied.

Monmouth County Divorce Attorney helps client win Pendente Lite Motion

P.M. Monmouth County Divorce Case

In this divorce case, the other side filed a pendente lite motion for counsel fees and spousal support.  When our Monmouth County Divorce Attorneys fight back against a pendente lite motion, we fight back hard!  With regard to the spousal support, we argued that the wife moved out voluntarily and that she had a roommate that helped to defray her cost.  The wife’s attorney had no answer to these allegations and as a result, the court held this against her.  The pendente lite support ordered was much less than what the other side was requesting.  In addition, the wife was seeking $5,000 in counsel fees.  Our lawyers also fought back hard against this and the court denied the entire claim.  The wife was not awarded any counsel fees at all.  All in all, a very successful motion.
