Same Sex Family Law Attorney in Hackensack, NJ

Custody and Parenting TimeDivorceProperty SettlementsSame Sex Family Law IssuesSupport Issues

The terminology governing same-sex unions in New Jersey has evolved over time, from domestic partnerships to civil unions and now marriage. But marriage is marriage—some work and some don’t. When the ties that bind you are broken, either in a same-sex or a traditional marriage, you’ll face many legal issues, from the division of marital property to potential custody and visitation issues. We can help.

At the Law Offices of Kelly Berton Rocco, we have concentrated our practice entirely on family law since 1988. We know that divorce can take a heavy emotional toll, and that it can be difficult to make objective decisions in the throes of a marital breakup. We’ll work hard to amicably resolve your differences, so that you can avoid the time, expense and anxiety of a trial. However, if we can’t protect your rights through negotiation or mediation, we have the skill and experience to aggressively protect your interests in court.

Our Same-Sex Family Law Practice

We work with parties of a same-sex divorce at every stage of the legal process, from the decision to file a complaint to motions for enforcement or modification of an order or final judgment. We handle all matters related to or arising out of a marital breakup, including:

  • Custody and parenting disputes—We’ll help you establish custody and parenting time arrangements that are in the best interests of your minor children while protecting your rights as parents.
  • Support issues—We’ll review all proposed child support orders for compliance with New Jersey guidelines and advise you whether your case is one that should deviate from the guidelines. We’ll also help you determine whether spousal support is appropriate and, if so, how much should be paid and for how long.
  • Property settlements—Our attorneys will help you equitably divide the debts and assets of your marriage, civil union or domestic partnership.
  • Adoption and surrogacy contracts—We can help you build a family through legal adoption or by hiring a surrogate to carry a child for you.
