Complex Property Division

During your divorce matter, the division of assets and liabilities is called equitable distribution. The proper division is based on the particular facts and circumstances of your legal matter and their application of the laws of the state of New Jersey. Oftentimes there is the need for your matrimonial attorney to be skilled in fact gathering as well as management of forensic accountants and appraisers to determine property and business values. An experienced attorney, along with a cohesive legal team, with a sophisticated knowledge of NJ divorce law and its application is in a much better position to synthesize the data provided, determine its relevance, and have the skill set to effectively communicate all of this verbally and in writing. All of these skills will empower the attorney to effectively strategize, negotiate and/or litigate on your behalf. An effective attorney should also support and help the client to make rational decisions since the client will simultaneously be dealing with all of the emotional aspects of living through a divorce and the reorganization of their family.

With decades of experience practicing and studying matrimonial law, Attorney Christopher Musulin is the guiding force of his legal team at Musulin Law Firm in keeping informed of new legislation, case law and statutes.

Christopher Musulin believes, "It is important that clients are educated with regard to the realities of the law, their rights and responsibilities empowering them to make informed decisions. It is my desire to negotiate and/or litigate from a position of strength on behalf of my clients, and the only way I can consistently achieve this is by a tireless pursuit of bettering myself as a professional. I also want to bring about solid legal solutions for people going through divorce so that they can get on with their lives and their children are in a stable environment moving forward. I have to balance the client being properly informed despite all of the great emotional aspects, the legal strategy and overall cost-effectiveness, the clients' desire to get this over and done with, and the client making decisions that they won't regret later on."
