Child Custody

Parents who are getting divorced may need to address the post-divorce parenting structure. Child custody can be one of the most emotional and impactful marital issues. For some, collaborating on a custody arrangement can help set aside differences for the better good of the child. Unfortunately, custody can be such a potent issue, working together through mediation may not be a possibility, leading a couple to court. More

Child Support

Parents in New Jersey must financially support their children until they are deemed financially independent. The age of emancipation in New Jersey is 19, though support may need to extend far beyond that. When a couple cannot agree to terms outside of court, a couple who litigate the matter will have this issue decided on by a judge. More

Child Visitation

Divorce can be a tumultuous and deeply emotional period for the nuclear family and other family members. For the court, the focus is the best interests of the child. Simply put, whether the couple’s contested issues involve custody or support, mitigating the effects on the child’s life will be a paramount issue. When child custody is resolved, there are instances where a noncustodial parent or other family member loses access to a child they love. More


Adoption is a wonderful way for families to grow and for guardians to make parental relationships official. When a family wishes to open their hearts and homes to a child in need, our firm is honored to guide them through the process. When a guardian has acted as a parent long enough to motivate them to inquire about adoption, we are here to serve. More


Relocation is one of the most significant family law issues heard in court. Custody arrangements can seriously impact the noncustodial parent’s relationship with his or her child. It can be a painful experience having to split a child’s time with an ex-spouse. Not having constant access to a child can be too much for some. More

Domestic Violence

New Jersey is one of the most proactive states in the effort to combat domestic violence. Unfortunately, domestic violence still plagues our towns. Domestic violence can touch anyone’s life. It does not discriminate and anyone can be a victim or perpetrator. Domestic violence involves both mental and physical abuse, taking a terrible toll on the individual and the family witnessing it.

Prenuptial Agreements

Divorcing couples find themselves in court over many of the same marital issues. Divorce matters, including the division of assets and alimony, could have been addressed before exchanging vows. A prenuptial agreement is an effective way to protect your assets before getting married. Simply put, a prenuptial agreement is a binding contract that establishes a mechanism for what would happen if the marriage ended. More

Modification and Enforcement

When a divorce is finalized, both parties must abide by the orders passed down in the Final Judgment of Divorce. Whether the couple mediates or litigates a divorce, a court’s word is the final say. Most people hope that the divorce itself is the end of the matter. More
