Divorce – We represent clients in both contested and uncontested divorces.
When the divorce is contested, we provide persuasive negotiation and strong,
effective advocacy in matters involving
property and debt division,
child custody and
support. Our Bergen County family law attorneys have particular expertise representing
parties in high-net worth divorces and in dealing with post-divorce issues
such as modifications or enforcement of custody, support and other domestic
Prenuptial Agreements – No one enters a marriage thinking it will end badly, but we all
know that divorce is prevalent in today’s society. Openly discussing
the couple’s expectations for
alimony and other issues in the event of
divorce or death can be a healthy way to start a marriage, with security and peace
of mind, especially when there is a disparity of wealth between the couple
or if one or both spouses had a previous difficult divorce that left them
wary about trying marriage again. We negotiate fair, sensible premarital
agreements based on full disclosures that meet the present and future
needs of our clients.
Adoptions – Helping families grow through adoption is one of the most satisfying
experiences we have as family law attorneys. We help couples through the
often-complicated process of agency adoptions, private adoptions, international
adoptions and stepparent adoptions, as well as adoptions by grandparents
or other family members in the
best interests of the children.
Domestic Violence – Domestic violence is a very real and tragic occurrence in New
Jersey and elsewhere, and we take a strong stand in helping victims find
safety and put an immediate and lasting stop to abuse. At the same time,
we know that these issues can be complicated and sometimes involve misunderstandings,
overreactions and even false accusations. Our practice includes the representation
of those accused of
domestic violence in certain situations as well representations of abuse victims.
LGBTQ+ – All of the above family law matters apply to gay couples as well,
and often their resolution is more complicated due to novel questions
of law, biases, or working with judges, juries and other lawyers unfamiliar
the application of family law to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBTQ+) peoples. Our comprehensive and inclusive New Jersey family law practice
embraces LGBTQ+ clients, to whom we provide sound legal advice and professional
representation with familiarity and experience in the field.
