Monmouth County and Ocean County Family Law
Family Law and Divorce Representation
Prior to meeting with one of our attorneys regarding your family law issue, it is crucial that you have as much information ready to provide to us as possible, including any and all available financial information and documentation.
We will assess your situation, including the financial aspects thereof, by taking a view of the current situation and where you would like to be. We employ the use of financial family law software for this purpose.
Developing a concrete plan of action is the firm's number one initial priority in a family law matter. The more specific the goals are at the outset, the more likely we are to achieve them in an efficient manner. Moving forward with that plan as soon as the goals are set achieves better control and efficiency.

- Child support: In New Jersey, child support payments depend on several factors, including the income of the parents and the time the child spends with each parent and as to older children regarding college-related issues.
- Property division: One of the most important steps during the divorce process is achieving an equitable division of marital property to facilitate financial life after the divorce.
