The Oceanport family law attorneys from Aretsky Law Group, P.C. have substantial experience representing clients with family law issues in Superior Court. Their experience gives Aretsky clients the edge they need when faced with a family law issue.Oceanport Child Custody Disputes
Child custody disputes are tough cases to handle for lawyers. They are even harder to live through as parties and even worse for the children. So often, the children are placed at the center of a dispute between two people whom they love the most in the world. Positioning children that way is detrimental to their well-being. It is important, therefore, to remember that child custody decisions are made by the judge with the best interests of the children in mind. New Jersey statute 9:2-4 instructs judges on what factors the should consider when determining the custody arrangement that is in the children’s best interest. After weighing the factors listed in the statute, the judge could decide that joint custody is in the best interest of the children. Or, depending on the situation, the judge could award physical custody to one parent while granting the other parenting time. The judge could arrive at an entirely different living arrangement if it is in the best interest of the children involved.Oceanport Child Support
A non-custodial parent must pay the custodial parent child support. In New Jersey, an order of child support is determined after application of the child support guidelines to the facts of the case at hand. The child support guidelines try to take into account the gross income of the noncustodial parent, how much time per week the noncustodial parent spends with their children, as well as a host of other factors to arrive at a fair sum. Paying child support might feel like a financial burden, and it might be. However, a parent has an obligation to take care of their children financially and emotionally. Having a child go without because the custodial parent has limited financial means hurts the child and unfairly restricts the life-experiences they could have because the custodial parent does not have the money.Oceanport Divorce
In New Jersey, a judge can grant a divorce on an at-fault basis such as adultery, cruelty, desertion, or drug addiction. Most divorces are granted without regard to the culpability of one party to the marriage. Rather, most divorces are based on irreconcilable differences. Therefore, a family law judge can grant the divorce on irreconcilable differences if the parties have lived apart for six months or more and there is no hope of reconciling the parties’ differences. Child custody and support are the primary concerns when granting a divorce but there are other considerations as well.
As part of the divorce proceedings, the parties must agree upon, or the judge will order a division of marital property. Marital property consists of the assets and liabilities accumulated jointly during the marriage. Marital property includes real estate, personal property, bank accounts, marital debts, health insurance, pensions, retirement accounts, and intellectual property.
Another important consideration among divorcing parties is whether one spouse might owe the other alimony. Alimony may be granted for the maintenance of one spouse while the parties financially adjust to living apart. New Jersey Statute 2A: 34-23 lists numerous factors a family law judge must take into consideration when determining whether an alimony award is appropriate, and if so, how much and for how long.

The Oceanport attorneys from Aretsky Law Group, P.C., in addition to their family law experience, also have tremendous experience with New Jersey personal injury cases. In New Jersey, most personal injury cases are constructed on a theory of negligence. In other words, the person who caused an injury did so while failing to exercise reasonable caution as required by the circumstances. Personal injury cases involving negligence include auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, medical malpractice, construction injuries, slip and fall claims, premises liability, and wrongful death to name a few.Oceanport Car Accidents
Unfortunately, New Jersey motorists are involved in tens of thousands of car crashes annually. Car accidents frequently happen due to the inattentiveness of the other driver. Additionally, car accidents occur because another person was driving while distracted, driving while impaired by either drugs or alcohol, driving while fatigued, speeding, or disobeying the rules of the road. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may be entitled to receive financial compensation for medical bills, future medical costs, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.
