Our Areas of Practice Divorce and Family Law

Family law and matrimonial cases are among the most difficult claims individuals may be involved in. Whereas there may be no true “winners” in these claims, the attorneys at Aretsky Law Group, P.C. will ensure that your legal rights and the legal rights of your children are protected throughout the case. Matters we handle for our clients include:

  • Contested cases: A contested matter is one in which the parties disagree as to how at least one of the issues should be settled in the case.
  • Non-contested cases: In a non-contested matter, the parties generally agree as to how the various issues should be addressed.
  • Child custody matters: Whether a parent wants to relocate, wants to gain more time with the children, or if the parents simply disagree on time-sharing matters, our attorneys can help.
  • Property matters: Often, the division of assets and debts is one of the most contested issues in a matrimonial matter. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and work hard to obtain favorable results for our clients.
  • Adoptions: Whether you are interested in a relative adoption, a stepparent adoption, or an independent adoption, our attorneys are experienced in all of these legal procedures.
  • Annulments: In certain situations, New Jersey law provides that marriages may be annulled. Our attorneys have experience in annulments and ensure the procedure is completed properly.
  • Father’s rights: If the parties are not married at the time of a child’s birth, the father risks losing his rights. Our attorneys are experienced in declarations of paternity and in related court procedures.
  • Grandparents’ rights: Grandparents are allowed to file a petition for visitation with their grandchildren. However, these cases are quite limited and grandparents may only apply for visitation under limited circumstances. Our attorneys will explain your options for grandparent visitation.
  • High net worth matters: Our attorneys are experienced in high net worth matters where the parties own millions of dollars worth of assets.
  • Domestic partnerships and civil unions: Civil unions and domestic partnerships provide different types of rights and are unique from marriages. Our attorneys are experienced in these relationships and the rights they provide the parties.
  • Separation: In New Jersey legal separation is a voluntary act by the parties. Before signing any agreement that delineates the various matters in your separation, you should speak with an experienced attorney.
  • Alimony: In many marriages, one spouse is entitled to alimony, or spousal support, from the other spouse. New Jersey judges consider many factors when determining whether an alimony award is appropriate. Our attorneys understand how to make a strong case in these claims.
  • Prenuptial agreements: Before marrying, the parties may create a written contract that describes how matters will be handled in the event of a termination of the marriage. With our attorneys’ guidance, you will know that your rights are protected before signing such a contract.
  • Post-judgment modifications: Often, after a Final Judgment, the terms of the court order no longer apply to the parties. In such an event, it is necessary to modify the original court order. Our New Jersey family law lawyers are experienced in post-judgment modification proceedings.
  • Child support: The custodial parent is entitled to monetary support from the other parent. Our attorneys have pursued child support on behalf of many of our clients.
  • Mediation: Mediation is an excellent tool that helps the parties reach an agreement on some, if not all, matters in their case. Our attorneys have helped clients settle even the most highly contested claims.
  • Paternity: Either the mother or the father of a child may seek a declaration of paternity through the family court. Our attorneys have represented both mothers and fathers in these proceedings.
