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 prenuptial agreements and similar arrangements for clients who have already been married or are living together in a committed relationship. 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.
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 noncustodial 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.
