  • Alimony and spousal support : Alimony in New Jersey depends on a large number of factors. Experienced lawyer Howard Pfeffer can explain these factors and how they will affect your case.
  • Post-judgment modifications : Your divorce judgment or family law order can be modified when certain relevant circumstances change, even if you previously agreed not to modify it.

  • Child support : Attorney Pfeffer can help you determine parental child support obligations under New Jersey's guidelines.
  • Custody and visitation : New Jersey has a child-centered process for resolving child custody and visitation, also known as parenting time. Howard knows the laws and how they will impact your lives.
  • Unmarried child support and visitation : Even if a child's parents are unmarried, that child has rights to child support and parenting time with both parents.

  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements : Coming to an agreement about the structure of your marriage now can prevent conflict in the future.
