Divorce: The end of any committed relationship involves a multitude of details. During your divorce, you face significant short and long term risks to these financial and personal factors. We understand that divorce creates a very challenging time for a family and will walk you through the process to protect both your personal and financial interests.
Alimony: Whether you intend to receive pay spousal support, you need skilled experts evaluating all financial circumstances to negotiate a fair and equitable deal. NJ Alimony laws are vague and allow for great flexibility which we can help you understand and negotiate for a very successful financial future.
Already Divorced: After your divorce is final you may come to find that certain agreements are not working. You or our ex-spouse may have had a change of life circumstances or perhaps someone is not abiding by original agreements. Regardless of the problems, our skilled attorneys can help you renegotiate support (alimony or child custody) and any custody issues.
Child Custody: Determining who is going to make decisions for your minor children and spend time with them can be contentious at best. Issues of custody and parenting time require artful negotiation so parents are appropriately involved in the lives of their children. We can help you successfully plan both weekly schedules and find creative ways to share holidays that are in the best interest of your children.
Child Support: The child support laws in New Jersey are very clear: every parent has an obligation to support children and by birth, children have the right to be supported to launch them successfully into adulthood. Our staff uses the same formulas and software used by the NJ Family Courts and can work with you on a fair and reasonable support plan to make sure that your children are financially cared for at a level comfortable to your income.
Domestic Violence: If you or your children have been the victim of a domestic violence act or if you have been accused, it is imperative that you act quickly for legal protection. Our attorneys can help you file appropriate paperwork, work with law enforcement, and sit by your side in the courtroom so you are protected at every step of the process.
LGBT: While the State of New Jersey has yet to recognize same-sex marriage, there are many ways in which non-traditional families require legal support. We can assist you with domestic partnerships and civil unions utilizing existing laws to best protect your family and interests. We also have expertise with adoptions, reproductive issues, and can help to ensure that both partners have equal rights for parenting children.
Do you live outside of New Jersey? We have a long history of supporting clients who are not living in state with all New Jersey Divorce and Family Law issues. We can work with you via phone, email, and utilizing a multitude of other tools to make sure that you receive top-notch legal representation despite your location.
Regardless of the reasons why you are visiting our site, we understand that these are incredibly challenging times in your life. At the Law Offices of Edward R. Weinstein, we are here to partner with you in creating the life you deserve in the most cost-effective way possible.
