Separation Agreements

Sometimes, relationships just don’t work as expected. You have the right to separate from your spouse at any time without a judge’s permission. However, there are some practical matters that you will need to address, such as child custody and temporary alimony.

For these matters and more, you will want to create a separation agreement with the help of a qualified family law attorney. If you and your spouse can agree to the terms of separation on your own, you will not need to go to court.

Arbitration & Mediation

Deciding to divorce is often challenging. If you and your spouse believe it is best to part and go your separate ways, you may be able to settle your divorce outside of the courtroom.

DeTommaso Law Group provides solid legal counsel for couples who wish to handle their divorce with the help of a mediator or arbitrator instead of a judge. To find out if arbitration or mediation is right for you, contact our skilled divorce lawyers today.

Alimony/Spousal Support

New Jersey laws protect the spouse who either had a lower income during the marriage or did not work at all. The higher-income spouse will be required to make alimony payments to the other spouse for a specified period. Whether you are being required to pay or are seeking spousal support, we can help.

Child Custody, Child Support & College Costs

Any divorce is painful, but divorces that involve children are especially challenging. If you have minor children during your divorce, you will need to address issues such as a parenting plan, child support payments, and how your child’s college education will be paid for. When you turn to our Somerset County divorce attorneys, we can provide the strong legal counsel you require.

Domestic Violence

If you or your child has been abused in your home, you deserve protection. DeTommaso Law Group can help you obtain a restraining order.

Alternatively, if your spouse is wrongfully seeking a restraining order against you, we can help ensure that your rights are protected.

Post-Divorce Options

Once a divorce decree is finalized, is that it? Most of the time, yes. However, there are some instances where divorce orders can be appealed or modified. Contact us today to find out if you have a qualifying circumstance that enables you to file an appeal or make modifications.

If your spouse is failing to pay alimony or child support or violating your child custody order, we can also help you enforce the terms of your divorce decree.
