Please give our office a call if you feel you need guidance in one of our areas of specialty:
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. Our family law attorneys understand that divorce is an extremely stressful time. I am proud to say that my New Jersey family law firm will walk you through the process to protect both your personal and financial interests.
Alimony: On September 10, 2014, Governor Christie signed a bill into law that has resulted in a major overhaul of alimony laws in the state of New Jersey. The legislative intent was to “modernize” New Jersey’s alimony laws. These changes include the elimination of permanent alimony in our state. Furthermore, the law of alimony and cohabitation (when the recipient of alimony is living with a new significant other) has been updated to make New Jersey’s alimony laws much more fair to the person paying alimony.
Whether you intend to receive pay alimony or have the exposure to pay alimony, our skilled Monmouth county divorce attorneys shall evaluate all financial circumstances to negotiate a fair and equitable deal. Notwithstanding the modernization of New Jersey alimony laws, this is still one of the most emotional and complex of all divorce issues. Family law mediators or attorneys can help you understand and negotiate a very successful financial future.
It is important to note that this new law takes effect immediately and does not allow for modification of previous Final Judgment of Divorce, or subsequent Court Orders. While I have spoken with many of the New Jersey family law attorneys who actually drafted the new alimony laws, ultimately I feel this was both a compromise in order to achieve other goals related to the new law. Otherwise, the entire bill would have died.
As my office shall continue to the Family Courts to see how they evaluate and apply this new alimony law in New Jersey, please do not ever hesitate to call, email, or follow my blog and YouTube channel for continual updates.
Already Divorced: After your divorce is final you may come to find that certain agreements are not working or your “ex” may not be complying with the terms of your settlement agreement or New Jersey Family Court Order. You or your ex-spouse may have had a change of life circumstances or perhaps someone is not abiding by original agreements. Regardless of the problems, skilled family law mediators can help you renegotiate support (alimony or child custody) amongst other items, or our attorneys can assist in litigating 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. Our Middlesex County child custody lawyers 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: A vast majority of the time New Jersey Child Support Guidelines in New Jersey determine the amount of support every parent has a legal obligation to pay in child support until the child is legally emancipated. Our child support attorneys utilize the same formulas and software used by the New Jersey 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 are victims of a domestic violence or if you have been accused, it is imperative that you act quickly for legal protection. Our New Jersey family law attorneys are all well versed on the State's Prevention of Domestic Violence Act.
LGBT: On October 22, 2013, Governor Chris Christie ended the battle against “gay marriage” by not appealing a judge’s ruling that allowed same-sex couples to wed in the state of New Jersey. This was a huge milestone in the gay and lesbian community and changed the way same-sex couples were viewed in New Jersey. Our New Jersey family law lawyers also have expertise with adoptions, reproductive issues, and can help to ensure that both partners have equal rights for parenting children.
