Giampolo Law Group assists clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in navigating the legal channels through which a couple dissolves a relationship, whether a divorce or cohabitation agreement.

Depending upon the type of formalized or legal relationship between the parties, a client may be entitled to alimony, support, and/or equitable distribution of assets and debt.  Pennsylvania and New Jersey employ different theories in the application of equitable distribution and alimony. While New Jersey generally leans toward the utilization of alimony to adjust for disparity in income between parties, Pennsylvania awards support much more sparingly. However, Pennsylvania adjusts for discrepancies in income and earning capacity by offsetting the distribution of assets and liabilities between the parties, whereas New Jersey generally applies a 50/50 split to marital debts and assets.

GLG is well versed in the application and use of Child Support Guidelines in Pennsylvania and New Jersey that are necessary during divorce and the dissolution of the family unit. We strive to ensure that your children receive the support to which they are entitled. We also provide guidance and representation in regard to recalculation applications, instances of changed circumstances warranting review, and modification of a child support award.

Despite any of the foregoing generalities, Giampolo Law Group knows that every case is fact sensitive, based upon the differences in the parties, children, incomes, employment, and a multitude of other factors that make every case unique. Our clients receive advice on the potential for alimony in any given case, but also regarding the division of assets and liabilities such as businesses, stock options, investment accounts, retirement plans, real estate, and credit card debt.
