Most people, quite naturally, associate family law with divorce, child support, child custody, and alimony. Family law matters are much broader than those. The Passaic County family law attorneys from Aretsky Law Group, P.C. also have experience representing clients involved in paternity disputes, adoptions, domestic violence cases, juvenile criminal matters, and guardianships, to name a few.Child Custody Issues in Passaic County
Child custody issues can be contentious between the parents. Sometimes the children get stuck in the middle watching the two people they love the most in the world fight over them. Sometimes the custody decisions are easy because of the family dynamic regarding employment and other considerations. If the parties cannot resolve their custody dispute, they can turn to a Superior Court judge to resolve their differences.
In New Jersey, child custody issues must be resolved with the best interests of the child in mind. That standard applies to whether the parties agree or a judge rules on the issue. Determining the custody arrangement that serves the best interest of the children requires evaluating numerous factors found in New Jersey Statute 9:2-4. Custody can be joint, sole with parenting time granted to the noncustodial parent, or some other arrangement depending upon the facts of the case.Child Support Claims in Passaic County
In New Jersey, the noncustodial parent must pay child support to the custodial parent. This is only fair. A parent should not benefit because their children do not live with him or her. Furthermore, a custodial parent should not be punished financially because the children reside in their home. Most importantly, the children themselves must not go without because one parent will not take care of their children’s financial needs.
In New Jersey, a judge determines the appropriate amount of child support by applying the child support guidelines to the case at hand. The child support guidelines establish the minimum amount a noncustodial parent must pay the custodial parent to help raise the children. The guidelines are presumptions which can be challenged if a child support order appears unjust or unreasonable.Issues in a Passaic County Divorce
In theory, a dissolution of a marriage is simple. Yet there are so many complicated issues that surround the legal implications of a divorce. In New Jersey, a judge may grant a divorce after finding fault with one spouse. However, most divorces are granted based on irreconcilable differences. This is also known as a no-fault divorce. A judge may grant a no-fault divorce if the parties have lived apart for the last six months and there is no hope of resolving the differences between them.
Notwithstanding the ease of getting a divorce, the other issues implicated by a divorce such as alimony, property division, child custody, and child support can be very difficult to resolve. Sometimes the best thing for both sides is to work together to reach a mutually agreeable solution. If not, then the judge will divide the marital property and may order one spouse to pay alimony to the other.

In New Jersey, personal injury law is generally based on the legal theory of negligence.

We rely on our doctors and health care professionals to return us to perfect health when we are sick or injured. We trust them implicitly. Perhaps that trust is misplaced.
