"After having hired two other firms to represent me in my highly contentious divorce, I felt dejected and financially drained without an end in sight. Out of desperation to protect my children, I sought out another firm to represent me and was referred to Herbert & Weiss by a friend. My entire experience in the divorce process was finally set on the right track and ultimately settled in my favor as a result." — K.M.

What Is Family Law?
Family law generally refers to the laws governing family relationships, such as marriage, divorce, child custody, and adoption. In the United States, family law is primarily governed by state law, with each state having its own set of family laws. Some states have adopted a unified family code, which codifies all aspects of family law into one comprehensive statute. New Jersey is one of these states, and its family law code covers a wide range of topics, including marriage, divorce, child custody, and adoption. While the specifics of New Jersey's family law code may vary slightly from other states' codes, the overall legal principles governing families are largely similar throughout the country.

Our team handles a wide range of family law issues, from divorce and child custody to adoption and domestic violence.
