Ridgewood Family Law

Family law encompasses many issues people in Ridgewood face on a daily basis. Aretsky Law Group P.C. attorneys represent family law clients who are facing divorce, child custody disputes, child support disputes, juvenile criminal matters, adoption, paternity, and modification of court orders. Ridgewood family law cases are heard in the Bergen County Superior Court by a family law judge.

Ridgewood Child Custody Disputes

Custody disputes can be contentious between divorcing or separating parents. Although the termination of a romantic relationship can be painful, parents possess the right to have children, to rear their children, and enjoy their children’s company notwithstanding how acrimoniously the relationship that bore the children ended. Children should not be stuck in the middle of a fight between their parents. Accordingly, family court judges will determine custody arrangements based upon the best interest of the children, as mandated by New Jersey statute 9:2-4. Based on that standard, the judge could determine that custody could be joint, sole with parenting time for the non-custodial parent or some other arrangement.

Ridgewood Child Support Case Representation

In New Jersey, the non-custodial parent must pay the custodial parent a sum of money on a weekly basis to support their children based upon the state’s child support guidelines. A child support order balances the equities among the parents because the custodial parent bears the financial burden of raising the children. The children could be deprived of certain opportunities if they had to rely on the financial support of only one parent. Therefore, the fairness of a child support order extends to the children as well. Judges issue child support orders after analyzing several factors including the number of children and the gross income of the non-custodial parent. Failure to pay support can lead to civil and criminal penalties if the non-custodial parent fails to satisfy his or her obligation.

Ridgewood Divorce Representation

Issues involved in a divorce can be very complicated, but the act of dissolving a marriage is not. Under New Jersey Statute 2A:34-2, a judge may grant a divorce after finding fault of one of the parties. An at-fault divorce requires proof of adultery, abuse, desertion, or incarceration. The state does recognize no-fault divorces as well. When granting a no-fault divorce in Ridgewood, the judge has to rule that the parties’ differences are irreconcilable and they have been living apart for more than six months. Getting divorced also means that the parties must divide marital property. This can be done by agreement or by order of the court. Additionally, the judge may rule or the parties may agree on resolving differences over alimony, health insurance, pension rights, and the real property owned by the parties.
