WHIPPANY LAWYERS HANDLE A WIDE RANGE OF FAMILY CONCERNS
Our firm delivers comprehensive family law counsel to people in Morris, Bergen Sussex, Essex, Somerset, Union, Passaic and Middlesex counties. We have guided thousands of clients to favorable results in matters involving:
- Alimony – Determining whether one spouse will provide financial support to their former spouse is often the most contentious aspect of divorce proceedings. There are many factors that go into this determination under New Jersey law including the length of the union, each spouse’s earning ability, and the couple’s standard of living, health, responsibility for children. We can explain the different types of alimony available in New Jersey and how they apply to your circumstances.
- Paternity – Whether you are seeking to establish or deny parentage, our firm can advise you on the relevant legal procedures and the scientific evidence used in these actions.
- Adoption – Bringing a child into your home is a wonderful commitment, but legal hurdles can create long, frustrating delays. For both domestic and international adoptions, we perform key tasks and prepare you for the evaluation process.
- Complex financial issues – Division of businesses, stock options, intellectual property, real estate, personal and investments. At Tanya N. Helfand, Esq., we have experience handling complex cases.
EFFECTIVE ADVISORS ESTABLISH PRE-NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS
Ending a marriage or a long-term relationship is hard enough without facing the prospect of financial ruin. We believe that the best time to address these tricky matters is when couples are getting along and communicating well. Our firm helps to establish fair pre-nuptial agreements and similar arrangements for clients. Though you might never need such an agreement, we can create a document that safeguards your assets and sets forth clear instructions in the event a breakup occurs.
DEDICATED ADVOCATES SEEK FAIR CHILD SUPPORT ORDERS
Whether parents were married or not, each has a legal responsibility to support their minor children financially. If they no longer share a home, the non-custodial parent must pay child support as ordered by the Court. To set the rate, New Jersey relies on a formula that takes into account factors such as each parent’s income, health insurance expenses, and childcare costs. Though this might seem like a simple process, errors do occur, and we press to make sure that accurate information is being used. Our firm also handles support modification and enforcement actions when appropriate.
