Child Custody

For parents, child custody may be the most significant issue in a divorce case. Parents and courts work to mitigate the effects of a divorce on the family. When a couple cannot come to terms over child custody, they can easily find themselves battling out this matter in court. Understandably so, a parent’s time with their child is precious.

Child Support

New Jersey parents are obligated to support their children until they are financially independent. Generally speaking, the age of emancipation in our state is 19, though support may extend far beyond. Unless a couple can come to an agreement outside of court, child support cases are decided by following the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines.

Child Visitation

Child visitation is a significant divorce matter. Understandably, divorce can be a deeply emotional and tumultuous period. When children are involved in a divorce, it is important that everyone work to mitigate the effects of the split. New Jersey courts will always act in the best interest of the child when deciding on issues that directly affect them.

Adoption

Adoption is a selfless, wonderful act. There are many forms of adoption available that fall outside the traditional sense of the word, but all of them are just as loving and compassionate as the next. Aside from the traditional version of adoption where a family opens their lives to a child in need, there are adoptions fit for guardians that want to formalize long-lasting relationships with a child or sometimes an adult.

Relocation

Relocation is a complicated and emotional topic. Child custody is a significant matter in a divorce. When the divorce concludes, the court or parents will have established a custody and parenting time arrangement that works for the family and, most importantly, is in the child’s best interest.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence continues to be a serious matter in New Jersey. Though the state does all it can to stop the spread of violence in the home, it plagues communities in every county. Domestic violence does not discriminate and anyone can be a victim or perpetrator. New Jersey is aggressive and proactive in combating this persistent problem.

Modification & Enforcement

When a divorce or family law matter concludes, the parties involved hope that the matter is put to rest and they can move on with their lives. When a court passes judgment, it is binding and parties are expected to yield to the order. In some situations, an individual’s circumstances change and the need to request a modification is critical. Other times, one party wantonly chooses to ignore the order, leading the other party to request intervention in the form of an enforcement order.
