Family Law

New Jersey Divorce Lawyers

If you are involved in a divorce or separation, or having a custody, child support, or alimony dispute, it is very important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. It is very common for people to delay hiring a matrimonial/family lawyer and then forfeit important rights or damage their case. Any case involving divorce or custody and support of children is extremely sensitive and we can help guide you through what could be a very difficult and uncomfortable situation.

We handle all types of cases in New Jersey Family Court in Passaic County, Bergen County, Essex County, Hudson County, and Morris County, including:
• Divorce (contested divorce and no-fault divorce)
• Custody and Parenting Time
• Child Support

New Jersey Family Court Approach (Why Us?)

If you must appear in Family Court, you will need a lawyer to protect your rights. Even if the dispute is a relatively minor one, we advise our clients to still consider the case serious because determinations about divorce, custody, visitation, support, etc. could seriously affect a person for years into the future. This is especially true in cases where children are involved. Our firm will fight vigorously for you and help you achieve the best results for your case. We strive to give each divorce and family case the necessary attention and attempt to negotiate the best deal possible for our clients. If an acceptable resolution cannot be reached, we counsel our clients and work extensively to prepare for a trial.

Divorce Lawyer Free Consultation

If you are involved in any kind of matrimonial, custody, or support dispute, please call us right away for a 100% FREE CONSULTATION, on the phone or in our office. We will review the court documents with you and advise you on what we can do to help you. Remember, anyone who files a Complaint or a Motion in Family Court is looking for the best possible result from their point of view. Do not expect to appear in court on your own, explain your side of the story, and have the judge agree with everything you say. This is very rare. It is important to be represented by a skilled attorney.
