What you should know about child support

Child support is without a doubt one of the most contentious issues in divorce cases, often as highly contested as custody issues. One unfortunate side effect of this tension is that many parents argue about child support even after a support order has been established by the courts. Understanding how child support orders are determined and what the state and courts do to enforce these child support orders can help parents avoid legal hassles in the future.

Family law assistance for same-sex couples

Family law has always played a significant role in the lives of New Jersey families, with issues such as divorce and child custody being tackled in courts in an effort to provide fair legal separation.

New Jersey is proud to recognize the union of same-sex couples, but of course with marriage comes the possibility of divorce.

Bill concerning domestic violence in New Jersey approved

Domestic violence allegations are amongst the most serious legal issues that a person can face. Domestic violence is obviously an incredibly tragic and awful criminal act, and no person should have to suffer their home being a place of nightmare, but it is also true that nobody should have their reputation tarnished and their civil status jeopardized by false allegations. Domestic violence convictions come with serious legal penalties, and those penalties could be getting even stricter.

How can I improve my chances of getting child custody?

Child custody is quite possibly the most important issue that couples will face if they are going through a divorce. It can affect your relationship with your child for the rest of your life, and even though modifications can be made to child custody agreements, it is much more preferable for most parents to have a fair custody agreement from the start. While parents can certainly consult with an attorney to help them with a child custody case, it never hurts to increase one's own knowledge about the topic.
