With nearly 20 years of experience, and certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney and Qualified as a Family Law Mediator, our seasoned attorney Sarah J. Jacobs, Esq. shares with whether or not to hire an expert and if so, what are the benefits.

Should we hire an expert to help us in our particular situation?

Many times when you are going through a divorce you have a post-judgment issue or you have other family law issues, you want to consider the use of an expert. Experts can vary. Often the first expert that people think of is the custody expert, but there are also forensic accountants, there´s business valuators. There are employability experts, there are educational experts. There is a bevy of professionals available to any family law litigator, family law attorney.

What benefits can we get from hiring an expert?

If the attorney, and the client, at the court, think that that expert will be useful in providing information to the Trier of fact in a way that either the client or the attorney is not able to convey. It is important that before you hire an expert you make sure to discuss thoroughly with your attorney whether or not it would be to your advantage to bring an expert into the case. What kind of expert you may need and more importantly whether that expert is going to be able to persuade the court in a way that you and the attorney would not be able to do.
