First-Time Drug Charges in Sea Bright Borough

If you are subject to a first-time drug charge, that charge could be the possession of illegal drugs, possession of prescription drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, or the distribution, manufacture or dispensing of drugs.  A person charged with a drug-related offense may be subject to jail time, significant fines, license suspension or revocation.  Charges that involve the manufacturing or sale of drugs are even more serious and can result in more jail time and/or a lengthy period of probation.

If you are arrested for a first-time drug offense you may be eligible for a conditional discharge.  A conditional discharge is a diversionary program that allows a first-time drug offender to avoid a drug conviction on his or her criminal record.  In New Jersey, you may apply for a conditional discharge if you have been charged with your first drug-related disorderly persons offense.  In a conditional discharge, you agree to receive supervisory treatment in exchange for a suspension of your drug charge during the conditional discharge period.  If you have been charged with your first drug-related offense, contact the experienced attorneys at Villani & DeLuca to discuss your defense and your eligibility for a conditional discharge.

The Collaborative Divorce Option

A traditional divorce is often a highly emotional and antagonistic process.  A collaborative divorce, by contrast, is a relatively new approach to the dissolution of a marriage and one which is less combative.  A collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial process that is settled outside of court with the help of lawyers and on occasion, other family professionals if they are needed.

A collaborative divorce offers parties some important advantages, the most significant of which is that the couple themselves determine the terms of the divorce rather than a judge.  Therefore, the parties have much more control and can avoid the uncertain outcome of a court proceeding.  The collaborative divorce proceedings also typically less costly than a traditional divorce and a collaborative divorce remains private unlike in court.  However, if for any reason a settlement cannot be reached, the attorneys representing the parties are required to withdraw from the case and each spouse will have to hire a new attorney to bring their divorce case to court.  If you are getting divorced, the experienced Sea Bright family law attorneys at Villani & DeLuca can help protect your rights and interests.  Contact us today for a free consultation by calling 732-965-3350.
