Family law focuses on legal issues that may arise between family relationships. As much as we want to keep our private relationship outside the control of the law, there are a number of family issues that are defined and directed by law. How we define relationships between family members, how we legalize a union between two people in marriage, how we end a marriage or civil union, and our responsibilities to our children and other members of our family are all issues that are defined by law.

Not every legal family issue is contentious, but even generally non-contentious issues like marriage and adoption can be highly emotional for the parties involved. The family law lawyers at Nitti & Nitti have over 30 years of experience helping clients with solutions to their family law concerns and other legal matters.

Livingston Family Law Lawyer Help With:


When a marriage ends, there are many issues that must be settled as the parties part ways. Often in marriage, spouses acquire joint assets like a family home and incur joint debts to cover family-related expenses. As part of their divorce settlement they must agree on matters such as what constitutes marital property, the value of their marital property, and how it will be divided between them. The issue of alimony may also come up if one spouse was financially dependent on the other. Where the parties cannot agree on how to settle these fundamental issues, they will need the assistance of a mediator or the courts to reach a divorce settlement.

Children’s Issues

When there are minor children from a relationship, the end of that relationship, whether the parents were married or not, has consequences on the children. New Jersey’s public policy position is to assure every minor child of frequent and continuing contact with both of their parents. This is because the State considers it to be in the public interest to encourage parents to equally share the rights and responsibilities of raising their children. In making decisions about child custody, visitation, child support, and relocations, the best interest of the child are always paramount in the court’s considerations. A parent will only be deemed to be unfit to be part of their child’s life if their conduct has a substantial negative effect on the child.

Family Law Issues

There are other family legal issues such as adoption, premarital agreements, and domestic violence that are covered by family law. While some of these issues must be resolved through court processes, others can be resolved through alternative dispute processes such as mediation and arbitration.
