The breakdown of a close or marital relationship is emotionally difficult, but prompt action is needed to ensure this breakdown does not adversely affect your finances and resources or your ability to maintain a meaningful relationship with your child or children. Although many family law disputes are governed by statutes found in either Title 2A or Title 9 of the New Jersey Statutes, these laws vest courts hearing family law disputes with a considerable amount of discretion in determining an appropriate resolution. For this reason, you need aggressive and knowledgeable representation from the Aretsky Law Group, P.C.
Aretsky Law Group, P.C. is prepared to assist you in positively resolving the following family law proceedings:
- Divorce: Many assume that because of the advent of “no-fault” divorce that divorce can be obtained without the assistance of a lawyer, especially where you and your spouse are splitting on amicable terms. However, as part of granting a divorce, the court will also enter orders dividing the property and debts that you and your spouse accumulated during your marriage and decide whether you or your spouse are entitled to spousal support from the other.
- Child Custody and Child Support: Like many other states, New Jersey utilizes a formula to assist courts in calculating an appropriate child support obligation to impose upon one parent or the other in the event the parents of a child separate or divorce. This formula is based upon the incomes of each parent, but inputting an incorrect value can result in a skewed child support amount being ordered. In addition to this, while (nearly) every parent in New Jersey is permitted to exercise visitation with his or her child, the frequency with which this occurs and the decision of which parent receives primary residential custody of the child is left to the court’s discretion and determination of the judge.
While personal injury lawsuits may not be as emotionally taxing as family law disputes, succeeding in your personal injury lawsuit can mean that you and your family have sufficient resources to pay for your medical expenses, address your lost wages, and compensate you for your mental pain and suffering. A personal injury lawsuit may be filed in Essex County if you or a loved one has been injured in:
- Car Wrecks: Car wrecks are often the result of the negligent or careless behavior of one driver or the other. Actions such as driving while texting, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving while drowsy, or disobeying traffic rules and laws can result in car wrecks that cause serious injuries and/or death. Drivers who are found responsible for causing car wrecks may be held responsible for the losses and injuries they cause to others.
- Medical Malpractice: When your Essex County doctor or medical professional fails to provide you with treatment or care in accordance with prevailing standards of reasonable care, your health – your very life – may be compromised. A successful medical malpractice lawsuit cannot undo the harm that a misdiagnosis or botched surgery causes, but it can provide you and your family with the financial assistance for additional treatment and care as well as the security you and your family may need during this time.
- Workplace Accidents: Being injured on the job is more than an inconvenience – depending on the severity of your injuries, you may not be able to return to work for weeks (or longer) and may require thousands of dollars in medical treatment. This can put a serious strain on your family’s finances. If your workplace accident is the result of the careless actions of a third party (such as a product’s manufacturer), you may be entitled to compensation.
