Types of Cases We Handle

Family law is a general term for a wide variety of domestic issues. While family should be synonymous with home and safety, this is not always the case, and many households are seldom free from conflict. Family law exists to preserve rights, help parents do what is best for their children, settle complex financial disputes, and keep everyone safe.

At Tesfaye Law, our family law attorneys can help you with:

  • Divorce, legal separations, and dissolution of domestic partnerships/civil unions
  • Divorce mediation
  • Division of assets/equitable distribution
  • Child custody, visitation, and parenting time
  • Child support, alimony, and palimony
  • Pre/postnuptial agreements
  • Adoption and kinship
  • Legal guardianships
  • Children’s educational needs
  • Emancipation
  • Paternity issues
  • Domestic violence matters
  • Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P – formerly DYFS)
  • Modification or enforcement of existing arrangements/orders (e.g. custody or child support)

When your family matter requires legal action, we are here to fight for your best interests and your children’s wellbeing. You do not have to go through this alone because we are here to serve as your trusted confidants and advocates.
