Family Law Matters Our Attorneys Handle
Led by Sarah J. Jacobs and Jamie N. Berger, our team works with you to resolve any family law concern you may have:
- Divorce — Whether you are ending a marriage through divorce, or ending a civil union through dissolution, our team will work with you to make sure that you understand your options and can choose the best path forward. We know how emotionally difficult and complicated these situations can be, and we strive to make the transition as smooth and easy as possible.
- Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolutions — This firm is highly skilled and experienced when it comes to divorce alternatives like mediation and arbitration which allow you and your partner to collaborate on the outcome of your divorce in a more private, communicative, and cost effective manner.
- Child custody— Even when the partners dissolving a relationship are amicable, child custody decisions are difficult. Difficulties can be amplified by complicating factors like the relocation of one parent. In most cases, removal and relocation require the consent of both parents and must be approved by the court. Jacobs Berger, LLC, works to minimize conflict and help you obtain the best solution for you and your children.
- Child support — Our firm can give you guidance about the child support you can expect to pay or receive. We can also advise you concerning parental responsibility for funding the post-secondary education of your child.
- Alimony and spousal support — Alimony/spousal support may be available to either party of a divorce or dissolution by agreement or by court order. Our New Jersey family law attorneys will work with you to negotiate or litigate appropriate support amounts based on the specific facts of your matter.
- Division of Marital Assets and Debt — New Jersey is an equitable distribution state, which means that division of property is based on what is fair. Our lawyers can provide guidance regarding the rules and the decisions you will have to make when determining asset and debt division following a divorce or dissolution.
- Order modification and enforcement – Children and situations change. When a custody, parenting time or support agreement no longer adequately reflects your circumstances, we help you get an appropriate modification. When necessary, we can also pursue enforcement of your current court order.
- Domestic violence — We assist clients with restraining orders, helping secure legal protection against physical violence, verbal threats, stalking, harassment and more, and help defend clients from false allegations.
- Family formation — Whether you are forming your family through adoption or are considering a prenuptial agreement to protect premarital and separate assets, our lawyers will provide knowledgeable legal advice to help your family move forward into the next phase of family building.
- Complex parentage issues — Our attorneys are uniquely skilled in the nuances of complex parentage issues such as those associated with assisted reproductive technology and donor agreements, third-party rights, psychological parents and multi-parent families.
Our firm believes in an honest and straightforward approach. If a legal agreement is not in your favor we’ll let you know. If our firm is not the right fit for your needs, we’ll help you find another attorney who better suits your specific needs.
