Family law issues can be very sensitive matters that are generally personal and affect many people beyond the parties directly involved. Family law covers a variety of legal matters, including divorce, division of assets, alimony, child support, child custody, relocation, parental alienation, domestic violence, and post-judgment modifications. When certain individuals get divorced, they might have more complicated matters at hand.

When a family faces divorce or a separation, everyone in the family is affected by the change. Often, these major changes impact the lives of the children involved. Though a couple may be working out their own differences, parents will have to address topics that affect their children. These issues will often include child support and child custody. Even if parents use mediation or collaborative law to agree to child support terms or a child custody arrangement, a New Jersey judge will be obligated to scrutinize their agreement in order to act according to the child’s best interests.
When a couple wants to end their marriage, they most often choose divorce. Divorce allows a couple to part ways and move on to a better situation. In New Jersey, a divorcing couple needs to address issues related to the family in order to end their relationship, including the division of assets and alimony, also known as spousal support in our state. Some couples have more complicated divorces that include high net worth and businesses. After the divorce is finalized, some couples may need to request a modification to court orders in the face of changing, unforeseen circumstances.
Violence in the home is a serious topic in the legal world. Those who face violent acts at the hands of someone they should be able to trust have the law on their side. Federal and state laws are serious about domestic violence. Courts and law enforcement are tenacious and proactive about combatting this very real problem in the state. Unfortunately, it continues to plague households across our nation. When someone faces domestic violence issues, they have a lot to consider about their future. When children are involved, victims are not only responsible for themselves; they have little ones to consider. If you are the victim of domestic violence, you need to contact the authorities immediately in order to protect yourself.
