Choosing the right family law attorney is the first step toward a successful and efficient divorce process. But this is also an emotionally trying time in everyone’s life—which is why The Law Firm of Walter K. Schreyer believes in offering a free consultation to clients about to go through a divorce. Here are some things you can expect from your no-cost visit:

Tell You the Next Steps

Family law attorneys can guide you through New Jersey laws regarding divorce, and they can inform you as to what will happen next in your situation. During a free divorce appointment, you can expect a lawyer to break down the steps of the separation and divorce process, without needless legal jargon. They can tell you what not to do (say incriminating things on social media websites) and what to do (get everything in writing), as well as what divorce hurdles are coming up ahead.

Honesty about Expectations

We don’t believe in promising what the law will not allow. During consultations, our attorneys are frank with clients about what they can reasonably hope to expect. This can be anything from the reasonable amount of alimony payments to expected child custody arrangements to the likelihood that one spouse will get the house. We cannot promise that every wish will be granted, but we can be honest about the realistic expectations you will need during this process.


Depending on where you are in the divorce paperwork, we can explain the timeline for getting this legal process wrapped up. If you are thinking about, or are about to file for, divorce, our attorneys can illustrate a general timeframe for resolving all of your issues. We will also explain parts such as discovery, temporary orders, depositions, mediation, and alternative dispute resolution.

The Law Firm of Walter K. Schreyer is committed to helping New York and New Jersey residents make the best of their divorce. We will sit down with you in a free consultation and explain your specific process in plain English. Call (888) 511-2837 to schedule an appointment for this no-cost meeting.
