Call 800-537-4154 For Your Consultation. Meeting Location By Appointment Only.
Courts such as the Monmouth County Superior Court are often asked to help resolve family law disputes when the parties – typically ex-spouses or parents of a child or children – cannot resolve the dispute themselves. These family law proceedings can exact a tangible toll on the resources and mental and emotional stamina of the parties because, unlike other lawsuits, family law proceedings in Oceanport and elsewhere throughout New Jersey can drag on for months – even years – before they are fully resolved. Continuing on with your life and/or focusing on being a good parent to your child depends in large part on your ability to swiftly and successfully resolve your family law dispute. While each case is different and unique, Aretsky Law Group, P.C. can provide you with the resources and advocacy you need to have the best chance at achieving your family law dispute goals.Frequently Asked Questions About Oceanport Family Law Cases

- Can I obtain custody or more visitation with my child? In Oceanport and throughout Monmouth County, courts are required to award the nonresidential parent adequate and reasonable parenting time. Modifications to the parenting time schedule set by the court or a change in custody require the court to be convinced that the change is in the child’s best interests.
- Am I eligible to file for divorce in Oceanport? New Jersey Revised Statutes set forth the requirements to file for divorce in New Jersey. Unless you are filing for divorce and alleging one or more “fault based” grounds for divorce like adultery, a divorce cannot be granted unless you or the other party have been a bona fide resident of the state for at least one year. You may file your divorce action in Monmouth County if that is the county in which you or your partner reside.
- How long with my case take to resolve? Family law cases are either resolved through a judge’s order issued after a hearing or through an agreement of the parties. This process can take weeks or months to complete, depending on the complexity of the issue and how eager you and the other party are to resolve the matter
