Family law cases that arise in the Ocean County vicinage, in which Lakewood lies, are heard in the Ocean County Superior Court by a family law judge. The Ocean County Superior Court family law judges have significant knowledge and experience in the area of family law. Most, if not all, practiced family law as lawyers. Therefore, the judges possess particularized knowledge from their practice and study of family law.

The courts were not designed to have a trial in every case. Every session would bog down, and justice would be substantially delayed if every case went to trial. Courts, therefore, encourage settlement of cases if settlement may be achieved. New Jersey family law courts provide litigants the opportunity to attend alternative dispute resolution through mediation or arbitration. Attending alternative dispute resolution helps move cases along quicker and resolves disputes more efficiently. Not every case is appropriate for alternative dispute resolution. However, it is an option for some litigants. Aretsky Law Group’s Lakewood family law attorneys have encouraged their clients to select alternative dispute resolution when appropriate.

Why You Should Consider Legal Representation for Your Lakewood Family Law Dispute

Family law disputes can involve complex and intricate statutes and laws. Having an experienced family law attorney guide you may be your best option instead of taking the issue on yourself. A knowledgeable family law attorney will help protect your rights. The stakes are too high to try to represent yourself.

Take a divorce case, for example. You could lose valuable property rights in your home, your income, your pension or your retirement plan if you fail to take the appropriate steps to protect them. Additionally, you could forfeit rights to property if you are not careful. You might give away more than you should have given away or you could get saddled with an onerous alimony order.

Family Law Book In addition to property rights, you have a right to have and raise children. But, the court can take those rights away from you. Having an experienced family law attorney by your side will fight to protect your rights to raise your children. It is important to remember that custody does not automatically lie with the child’s mother. Convention, rather than a legal mandate, has dictated that children live with their mothers. Absent an agreement between the parties, a judge can determine what the best interests of the children are and make a custody order consistent with that finding. A party can ask the judge to modify that order if a substantial change in circumstances occurs.

In addition to child custody issues, a skilled family law attorney will know how to use New Jersey’s Child Support Guidelines to achieve a just child support order. Every parent has an obligation to care for their children, and each parent must pay their fair share. A custodial parent has the right to receive timely child support payments. However, the non-custodial parent may seek to modify that order based upon a substantial change in circumstances.

It is important to remember that each case is as unique as the people involved. Aretsky Law Group’s Lakewood family law attorneys will take the time to understand the issues and learn what their client wants to happen. Aretsky Law Group’s Lakewood family law attorneys will devise a strategy to deliver justice to their clients.
