Morristown, New Jersey Law Firm Video Frequently Asked Questions
What types of family law matters do Smith & Doran family law attorneys handle?
Well family law is a very broad area of the law and does not just encompass divorce. So for example I’ve done dissolution of domestic partnerships. We do custody disputes between people who were never married and have no issues with respect to division of assets or alimony as some cases might. We do a lot of domestic violence cases, those arise both plaintiff’s work and defense work. Those arise in the context of all kinds of relationships, dating relationships, same-sex relationships. We do custody litigation, parenting time litigation for couples who have never been married. We do partitions of real estate, division of assets for same-sex couples, domestic partnerships.
So when we say family law, it is not nearly limited to the world of divorce and the dissolution of the marriage, although litigation is generally divorce litigation, is generally a niche practice.
