Divorce & Family Law Matters in Clark

Do You Need a Clark Family Attorney?

Family law matters can present a variety of legal, financial and practical challenges. This is true whether you are preparing for a divorce, you need to establish paternity, or you need to modify or enforce an existing child custody or child support order. Regardless of your personal circumstances, you need to make informed decisions, and the best way to do this is to rely on the advice of an experienced Clark family attorney.

Getting Divorced in Clark

Do you need a Clark divorce attorney? Whether you are contemplating a divorce or your spouse has already filed a petition to end your marriage, it is important for you to speak with an attorney to make sure you understand your legal rights. It is also important to understand the options for resolving differences during your divorce (i.e., collaborative law, mediation and litigation) and to develop a strategic approach focused on achieving your desired outcome as efficiently as possible.

At Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A., we provide full-service legal representation for divorcing spouses in Clark. We assist our clients with all divorce-related matters, including:

  • Filing for divorce or responding to your spouse’s divorce petition
  • Financial disclosures and hidden assets or income
  • Identifying separate and marital assets
  • Equitable distribution of marital property
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support and spousal support

Establishing Child Custody and Child Support 

If you are unmarried and you have children, establishing child custody and child support will be somewhat similar to the process of going through a divorce. However, there are some important differences—one of the most significant being that you may need to establish paternity before you can move forward with the remainder of the process.

Our Clark child support lawyers and child custody lawyers are intimately familiar with the challenges unmarried parents can face when trying to navigate New Jersey’s legal system. We can guide you step-by-step, and we can help you fully enforce your rights under New Jersey law.

Seeking Modification or Enforcement of a Divorce, Custody or Child Support Order

If you need to seek modification or enforcement of a divorce, custody or support order in Clark, our lawyers can assist with this as well. We can explain your options and any limitations that may apply, and we can seek appropriate relief in the New Jersey courts on your behalf.

Child Support Guidelines

In the state of New Jersey, child support guidelines are applied to divorce cases, as well as paternity cases involving children born out of wedlock.  These guidelines are applied by the judge in all such cases unless it is determined that their application would result in an injustice. 

The underlying philosophy of the guidelines is to protect the best interest of the children, including:

  • Both Parents: Child support is the continuous duty of both parents.
  • Current Income: Children are entitled to share in the current income of both parents.
  • Economic Victims: Children should not be the economic victims of divorce or out of wedlock birth.

An experienced Clark child support lawyer can review your case and confirm the amount of child support that is owed, as well as discuss other child-related issues.
