Offering Comprehensive Divorce Services

Getting a divorce involves carefully separating lives that have become deeply intertwined. The primary focus in the divorce itself is the division of marital property. New Jersey is an equitable distribution state, meaning that nearly all assets obtained during the marriage must be divided equitably (though not always equally). We will work with you to catalog and properly value all assets and debts. Next, we will identify which are most important to you now and in the future. These could include:

  • The marital residence
  • Cars and other vehicles
  • Retirement assets (pensions, IRA accounts, 401(k) accounts, etc.)
  • Household furnishings
  • Valuable personal collections

We will go into negotiations or litigation with a focus on obtaining your most important assets and ensuring that the division of property is fair and sustainable. We will also help you with any additional matters related to your divorce, including spousal support, child custody and child support. Your well-being and the well-being of your children will be our top priority throughout the process.

Other Family Law Services

In addition to divorce and custody, our firm is ready to help you resolve nearly any other family law issue, including:

  • Adoptions
  • Name changes
  • Negotiation of separation agreements, prenuptial agreements and the modification of prior divorce judgments
  • Cohabitation agreements
  • Disputed paternity proceedings
  • Domestic violence and restraining order hearings

One of the main areas of concentration for our attorneys is in family law and divorce law, which is a highly dynamic legal practice area.
