Ocean County Annulment Lawyers


There are many reasons that a person might choose to have a marriage annulled rather than simply settle for a divorce. Religious convictions or one spouse's desire to eliminate his or her association with the other often factor into a decision to seek an annulment.


The law in New Jersey is very specific with regard to the requirements that must be met in order to receive an annulment, and the process can become quite complex for people who have never been through it before.


Be sure that you seek the advice of an experienced Monmouth and Ocean County annulment lawyer who understands the law and can help you reach a favorable outcome. At The Law Offices of McMahon and Russell, we represent clients in all types of annulment cases.



Choosing to end a marital relationship through legal separation or divorce is an important decision to be made after significant consideration and preparation. Though there are circumstances that warrant taking immediate action, it is often more beneficial for clients to take the time to plan for the divorce and life after.

From property division to child custody to spousal support, I am ready to represent your interests. After the divorce, I am available to help you petition for modifications of orders.


When you are ready to move forward with the divorce process, call our office to schedule an initial consultation. We can assist you in finalizing your divorce planning as well as represent you through the process.

Mediation Law Ocean County NJ Lawyers


Mediation law refers to a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in which the parties to a lawsuit meet with a neutral third-party in an effort to settle the case. The third-party is called a mediator. It is this person’s job to listen to the evidence, help the litigants come to understand each other’s viewpoint regarding the controversy, and then facilitate the negotiation of a voluntary resolution to the case. The purpose of mediation is to avoid the time and expense of further litigation by settling a lawsuit early on in the process.


Unlike other forms of ADR, mediation is not binding on the parties. In fact, thinking about a mediation proceeding in terms of whether the parties will be bound by the outcome suggests a misunderstanding of the nature of mediation. The mediator’s role is not to reach a decision – it is to help the parties reach their own decision. There is no guarantee that mediation will produce a settlement agreement resolving the case.


Contact Mrs. Russell to discuss further if mediation will be a benefit for you.
