Alimony

When divorce is being considered, concern over your future is almost always focused on the area of finances. Financial concerns play a significant factor in each and every aspect of divorce. Quite often such emotional situations cause judgments to be affected. The family law attorneys at The Rotolo Law Firm will help you step back from the emotional aspect of your divorce and focus on the major decisions you need to make. Our attorneys will work through each decision and situation and work toward the negotiation of an equitable and fair alimony agreement.

Child Custody

Child Custody - Child holding hands with his dad.Divorce is difficult on so many levels for any child involved. As you know, a parent’s right or obligation to raise a child does not end with the marriage. Unfortunately, children are sometimes used as pawns during the divorce negotiation process – even by the most well-intentioned parents. The Rotolo Law Firm’s divorce and family law attorneys will represent your rights and work to help you maintain a loving and healthy relationship with your child or children after your marriage dissolves.

Child Support

And the bills… Along with a parent or guardians’ right to maintain an active involvement in the life of his or her child comes the financial responsibility to raise that child. Divorce does not erase this obligation. Our divorce and family law attorneys will strive to negotiate a fair division of financial responsibility between parents so that the children will continue to be cared for.

Changes to your child support and enforcement

A change in circumstances can turn what was a fair support order into a financial hardship. When a lifestyle is altered, a change in child support arrangements may be warranted. All changes to existing child support arrangements need to be accomplished with a change to the court order.

Our attorneys will guide you through the legal process of modifying your court order in an effort to prevent undue hardship if and when you experience a substantial change in your financial circumstances. Conversely, our lawyers will represent you against a partner who has defaulted on support payments without a modified court order.

Adoption

Adoption - Picture of an infant in a carseatUnder most circumstances, adoption is a joyous occasion for families. There are times, however, when circumstances turn that joy into heartbreak. Whether you are facing immigration red tape or a biological parent’s withdrawal from the agreement, the family law attorneys at The Rotolo Law Firm can help you navigate through the legal adoption process. Our attorneys guide you through this process so you can experience the happiness of welcoming a new addition into your family.

Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements

Prenuptial Agreements - Picture of a Couple in wedding attire walk down a dirt roadIt is not unusual for people to consider protecting their financial assets in the event their marriage fails. Agreements may be drawn prior to marriage, and they can also be done after the marriage has taken place. Pre- and post-nuptial agreements are not just for the rich and famous. While it may not be romantic, more and more people are taking a practical approach to protecting their assets. The staff at The Rotolo Law Firm will help you draft an agreement that protects both spouses’ financial interests – so that both husband and wife enter into marriage with a mutual understanding of a contingency plan should the future not turn out as both would hope.

Juvenile Delinquency ~ Dependency Proceedings

Juvenile Law - Picture of teenager in handcuffsThere are times when your child may act out in ways that could result in criminal charges or would cause New Jersey child welfare authorities to step in and restrict your parental rights. You need family law attorneys to guide you through this trying time. Our attorneys will navigate the State’s complex family laws and work towards the protection of your parental rights.
