Short-Term Marriages of Young Couples

March 6, 2023

Divorces happen for people of all ages, including young people. From my experience, some of the easiest cases to settle typically involve young parties who have been married only a short period of time, have limited financial entanglements, and no children. 

In a typical case, the parties usually choose to go their own separate ways both romantically and financially; they may keep their own retirement assets, bank accounts, vehicles, debts, and go on to a hopefully happier future.

While, there is no obligation in New Jersey to waive rights to equitable distribution or other relief, no matter how short the marriage was, typically, younger parties in a short-term marriage have not accumulated much together, and they simply want to get out of the union as financially unscathed as possible. It is, of course, up to the parties to a divorce how they want to resolve these issues and every case is unique.

Do yourself a favor and hire Alexandra
Alexandra came as a recommendation from an attorney friend and she was spot on. Alexandra kept me informed through every step of the process during such a difficult time in my life. She explained things in detail and always had my best interest in mind, even when I may not have realized it. As my title says, do yourself a favor and hire Alexandra.

Alexandra is by far the best lawyer I retained. She did not waste anytime with me or try and drag out the situation for more money. Straight and to the point. Alexandra knows the facts that count for your case and is prepared and ready to fight every inch for you. She also is passionate and listens to you in completely so she can better understand what you are going through. I absolutely recommend Alexandra Kardon Rigden for family law or a DV case.
