When your marriage breaks down, you face many challenges. How will custody and parenting time be determined? Will the court order child or spousal support, and if so, how much? How can you effectively plan to pay for your child’s college education? What happens if your spouse wants to move from New Jersey and take your children?

In the midst of a divorce, the emotions you experience can make it difficult to know what’s in the best interests of you and your family. The Law Offices of Kelly Berton Rocco can help.

At the Law Offices of Kelly Berton Rocco, we have focused our practice exclusively on family law since 1988. We understand the emotional toll divorce and its aftermath can take. We’ll listen carefully to learn the details of your situation, and take the time to carefully explain the law and process, as well as your rights and options. We know that divorce litigation can be expensive, time-consuming and potentially harmful to family relationships that you want and need to maintain, so we’ll always try to amicably resolve your differences first. Nonetheless, we are skilled trial attorneys and are always willing and able to protect your interests in court, if necessary.

Our Divorce Practice

We represent parties at all stages of a divorce, from answering your questions about the process and your rights before you make the decision to file for divorce through negotiated settlements, mediation or trial to post-judgment requests for modification or enforcement of a final divorce decree. We are also experienced appellate attorneys and if you are unhappy with a judge’s decision, we will discuss your rights to appeal as well as candidly and honestly evaluate your chances of winning an appeal before agreeing to represent you in the appellate courts. We handle all issues related to or arising out of a divorce, including:

We strongly believe that both parents play an important and integral role in the lives of their children, and work hard to protect both mother’s and father’s rights. We also aggressively advocate for parties in same-sex family law disputes.

We know the anxiety that can come with uncertainty, so we’ve put together comprehensive information on what you can expect during the divorce process. To learn more, click on “Divorce Tips” or read our family law blog.
