Secret Consultation with Divorce Lawyer
I want to talk to a divorce lawyer but I don't want my spouse to find out, what do I do?
Answer. Any consultation with a divorce lawyer is confidential and is part of attorney/client relationship. You can call the lawyer to set up a first appointment and tell the person who makes the appointment that you will call back to confirm and that they are NOT to call you. Also when you meet with the lawyer tell him/her not to send you any mail to your home. Most spouses open a post office box in a nearby town (not in their town) in their own name and use this post office box to facilitate communication with an lawyer by mail. In most cases you can, with some advanced planning, keep your involvement with a divorce lawyer a secret until you file for divorce.
In order for permanent alimony to be awarded in New Jersey, the marriage must have lasted at least 10 years and one spouse must have become economically dependent on the other. This type of alimony allows the obligee to maintain the lifestyle to which he or she has become accustomed for the duration of the obligor's lifetime (unless the obligee remarries).
