Compassionate Divorce Lawyer Providing Guidance and Advice

Reliable family law firm helps clients in the Cape May County area

The dissolution of a marriage is emotional and stressful, even when both partners agree that it’s the right decision. At my firm, I help ease the legal strain of divorce so you can concentrate on the health and well-being of your family. Representing divorcing spouses in the Cape May County area and throughout Southern New Jersey, I will work to reach favorable arrangements for the care of your children and the division of your shared property. My knowledge and many years of experience of New Jersey laws and practices enables me to provide advice on all aspects of divorce and to address any questions or concerns you may have so that you can have confidence moving forward.

Dedicated advocate striving for fair support and property arrangements

 I will listen to your needs and consider your goals as we work to develop solutions for all aspects of your divorce. I handle matters of:

  • Child custody and visitation — Court orders determine where your child will live, how parenting time will be split and to what degree each parent gets to make decisions about their child’s life.
  • Child support — A number of factors are used to calculate child support payments, from each parent’s income to each child’s particular needs. I will seek an order that’s fair to all parties.
  • Distribution of property — The division of your home and other assets often depends on whether the property is owned by a couple (“marital property”) or by just one spouse. I will press for a fair division.
  • Division of marital debts — Both spouses may be accountable for debts accrued by the couple, or one partner may be found to be more responsible.
  • Spousal support and temporary support — Whether you seek spousal support, also known as alimony, on a permanent or temporary basis or must pay it, I will seek a fair determination so that divorce doesn’t leave you financially strapped.

With commitment and conviction,  I will seek fair arrangements on your behalf, always keeping in mind your best interests and those of your children.

Experienced family lawyer encouraging cooperation and carefully handling  litigation

Most couples will first try to settle their differences through mediation rather than opting to let a judge decide the terms of their divorce. At times the differences can be mediated between the parties and their attorneys to negotiate a fair settlement in an amicable fashion and at other times a trained facilitator is necessary. The mediation process fosters cooperation between partners and usually produces less stress than litigation. Mediation often reduces the time and cost of divorce, but most importantly, it puts the decisions in your hands and under your control.

If litigation is necessary to reach just and equitable resolutions to alimony, custody and other matters, I am prepared to advocate on your behalf in pursuit of the most favorable outcome. Having a committed lawyer by your side can alleviate the uncertainty and stress of court and help you obtain a favorable trial outcome.
