Areas of Law Description
Weinberger Law Group LLC handles New Jersey family law matters including:
- Divorce & Legal Separation
Deciding to divorce or separate is hardly ever easy. Concerns about how the divorce may affect your finances and property can intensify emotional stress. If you have children, the potential impact of divorce or separation on them is an additional source of concern. The lawyers at Weinberger Law Group can help you through the legal process. Gaining a basic understanding of what generally happens in divorce or legal separation can alleviate some of your anxiety about the future.
- Alimony & Spousal Support
The terms "spousal support," "alimony" and "spousal maintenance," all refer to amounts of money one spouse pays to the other during divorce proceedings or after a divorce. New Jersey alimony may also be appropriate during or after dissolution of a civil union. New Jersey courts award alimony when it is necessary to balance the economic consequences of divorce and prevent either member of a divorcing couple from experiencing a severe drop in standard of living. The attorneys at Weinberger Law Group have extensive experience evaluating alimony cases in divorce.
- Child Custody, Visitation and Parenting Plans
If you are looking to establish or modify New Jersey child custody arrangements, you need to understand how New Jersey courts make decisions regarding physical and legal custody of children. New Jersey judges can order shared, joint, or sole custody, depending on each child's best interests and the unique circumstances affecting each parent. The New Jersey child custody lawyers at Weinberger Law Group, LLC can help you resolve even the most complex child custody and parenting-related legal matters.
- Child Support
Courts in New Jersey must follow the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines in computing New Jersey child support. These complex guidelines take into account each parent's available income and how much time a child spends with each parent. In many situations, correct application of the guidelines provides an exact child support payment amount. In other situations, including situations in which parents may have a larger than average combined net income, the guidelines yield only a starting number, and determining the appropriate amount of support may require weighing specific child support factors.
Various forms of adoption are available in New Jersey for married couples, couples in civil unions or domestic partnerships, and single individuals. Regardless if you are seeking a new addition to your family or you are a step-parent, grandparent or other relative seeking parental rights through adoption, the dedicated and compassionate New Jersey adoption attorneys at Weinberger Law Group, LLC can help you determine which type of adoption is right for you and your family and assist you with fulfilling all legal requirements.
- Divorce Mediation
New Jersey divorce mediation is a cooperative, not contentious process designed to obtain peaceful solutions during times of conflict. Couples in distress looking to maintain a respectful relationship for their children's best interest often find that the services of a New Jersey divorce mediator, such as those found at Weinberger Law Group, is the most civilized way to address and resolve disputes.
- Domestic Violence
Every day someone somewhere is verbally, physically, emotionally or sexually abused by his or her spouse or cohabitant. If you or someone you love is a victim of NJ domestic violence, it is important to know that the New Jersey laws are on your side. The New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence Act is a law that offers protection against NJ domestic violence and domestic abuse. It applies to anyone over the age of 18 who is experiencing New Jersey domestic abuse. New Jersey domestic violence laws strive to protect you from your abuser and ensure your safety.
- Prenuptial Agreements
If you are engaged to be married or wish to enter into a domestic partnership, a New Jersey Prenuptial Agreement can be an extremely important planning tool. In fact, preparing an NJ Prenuptial Agreement prior to marriage is an effective way to protect your financial interests. In the event of a divorce, a New Jersey Prenuptial Agreement generally protects your premarital assets and can ensure that your property is deemed exempt from equitable distribution.
- Civil Unions and Domestic Partnerships
At Weinberger Law Group, our New Jersey civil union and domestic partnership attorneys are dedicated to supporting the needs of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, and Transgender) community. We understand that same-sex couples can face unique challenges. Our attorneys have extensive experience in meeting the needs of non-traditional couples and families, and we are committed to staying on the leading edge of this rapidly evolving area of law.
