Sometimes there will be other issues around the real estate, including even purchases of new domiciles.

Other assets also need to be considered. How do you solve the financial puzzle? What should you expect during and after divorce?

There is no getting around the emotional impact of divorce on every member of the immediate, and even extended, family. These seem to primarily revolve around the kids.

When it comes to the legal aspects of custody and parenting time, the panel will include the expertise of Mathias R. Hagovsky, Ph.D. of Gerson Hagovsky Antonelli and Altman, LLC.

Dr. Hagovsky is available to talk with you about concerns you may have about custody and parenting time: how is it determined, what are the important factors, is an evaluation the only option? Can I move out of New Jersey? Can I keep my spouse from moving far away with the children? What other ways can a psychologist help with the divorce process?

Dr. Hagovsky is a forensic psychologist specializing in performing custody and parenting time evaluations including petitions by one party to move from New Jersey to another State or Country. He is experienced as a Parent Coordinator and mediator of custody and parenting time issues.

How do evaluators address custody and parenting time once separate households are established? What are the procedures used in a best interests evaluation? How can the effects of divorce be minimized–or heightened–for the children? What services can psychologists provide if there are still child-centered impasses after the divorce? These are just some of the issues that Lisa K. Tomasini, Ph.D. of Gerson Hagovsky Antonelli & Altman, LLC will address.

Sometimes there are circumstances in a divorce that require the services of a private investigator. Dan Coleman is owner of Creative Solutions. He is a 26-year veteran detective who retired from the Morris County Prosecutor’s office, where he worked in several specialized units, including an assignment at the FBI and six years in the Sex Crimes/Child Abuse/Megan’s Law Unit.

Dan notes, “Unlike the stereotypical image of a PI lurking in the shadows with a camera, following errant husbands and wives, modern private investigators are experienced and trained professional.” Dan will answer questions about obtaining essential, compelling, court-ready evidence in matters such as child custody, cohabitation, and financial forensics.

Dr. Lisa Tomasini is a licensed psychologist who provides forensic services to divorcing families. She offers best interests and move-away evaluations to help determine family-specific parenting time plans. Her background in child development and family systems, training in mediation, and experience in evaluating children and adults allow her to offer additional services, including therapeutic reunification of disenfranchised parent/child dyads and parenting coordination for child-focused resolution of parenting plan disagreements.
