Lakewood Family Law
In Lakewood and throughout New Jersey, family law is a broad term that encompasses a wide range of legal issues relating to family life.

Aretsky Law Group’s family law attorneys have vast experience representing people in all New Jersey family law issues.
Lakewood Child Custody Disputes
Child custody disputes are not easy to resolve. The children bear the brunt of the custody disputes. However, a judge must consider the best interests of the child when deciding a custody dispute. A judge has the authority to award custody to both parents jointly, award sole custody to one parent and award parenting time or visitation to the noncustodial parent, or devise another custody arrangement which serves the best interest of the child. In determining the best interest of the child, the judge can weigh and analyze the various factors enumerated in New Jersey statute 9:2-4. Child custody arrangements can change if the circumstances warrant.
Lakewood Child Support Issues
Paying child support to the custodial parent by the non-custodial parent is not intended as a punishment for the noncustodial parent. Rather, child support orders provide financial support for the custodial parent and the child. Child support orders may be amended over time as circumstances change.
The judge determines the amount of child support by applying New Jersey’s child support guidelines to the facts of the case. The child support guidelines ar a complicated set of rules and regulations that allow a judge to determine a fair amount to be paid weekly by the noncustodial parent. The child support guidelines create a presumption as to the weekly child support amount. That presumption may be rebutted with evidence that gives the judge a reason to depart from the guidelines.
Legal Issues In Lakewood Divorces
A divorce is easily granted in New Jersey. New Jersey still recognizes at-fault grounds for divorce such as adultery, desertion, prolonged drug abuse, or incarceration lasting longer than one year. However, most people elect to sue for divorce based on irreconcilable differences, also known as a no-fault divorce.
A necessary component of dissolving a marriage is the division of marital property. Marital property is any real or personal property acquired during the marriage intended to be marital property. Any property brought into the marriage and kept separate is not included in the division of marital property. Marital property can include real estate, personal property, bank accounts, pensions, brokerage accounts, intellectual property, and marital debt as well.
A family law judge may grant alimony to one of the spouses. Alimony is designed to maintain the financial status quo of the couple after they divorce. Alimony may be for a specified length of time, or it may be indeterminate depending on the duration of the marriage. The judge may take other factors into consideration as well.

Lakewood Auto Accident Claims
Thousands of car accidents occur each year in New Jersey. These accidents caused hundreds of deaths and inflicted numerous other people with serious personal injuries. Auto accidents are usually caused by one driver who is failing to drive cautiously. In other words, the person is driving negligently.
Drivers who suffer injuries, or the families of a person killed in a Lakewood auto accident may be eligible for compensation. The amount of compensation depends on factors like the amount of medical bills accumulated, anticipated future medical expenses, compensation for a lost limb or permanent injury, lost wages, loss of future economic opportunity, as well as pain and suffering.

Lakewood Medical Malpractice
Medical errors kill nearly 250,000 people every year in the United States. That number is hard to believe considering the technological advancements science has made in medicine over the last century. Despite those advances, medical malpractice occurs at an alarming rate.
Medical malpractice occurs when health care professionals fail to diagnose, misdiagnose, delay in diagnosing, misreading test results, committing a surgical error, or misprescribing medication.
Medical malpractice is a very complex area of the law. The claimant must retain an expert witness to form an opinion that the victim’s injury, sickness, or death occurred because a physician or other person treating the victim failed to meet the standards required by the medical profession.
