What is Family Law?

Family law covers all matters that involve family relationships including premarital agreements, divorce, alimony, separation, and child support issues. Family law issues are often contentious and can create animosity between once-loving individuals. Parties often have difficulty thinking clearly and rationally when they are emotional and can make decisions that prolong their dispute and deepen existing animosities. Sometimes, a lack of legal support heightens the fear of losing control which results in desperate actions that only intensify the rancor between the parties. Having an experienced family law and divorce attorney on your side can give you the clarity you need and the legal support to protect your interests.

Types of Cases We Handle

We understand that family law can be a sensitive and emotional issue, which is why we are committed to providing our clients with the best possible representation. We most commonly handle the following issues:


Custody refers to the where the child will live and who has the legal right to make decisions regarding a child’s welfare, including decisions about their education, medical care, and religious upbringing. In most cases, child custody is granted to one or both parents by the court. However, in some circumstances, other relatives or even non-relatives may be granted custody.


A divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage by a court. In order to get a divorce, one or both parties must file a petition with the court and show that there are grounds for divorce. Once the petition is filed, the court will grant the divorce if it finds that there are indeed grounds for divorce.

Child Support

Child support is money that is paid by one parent to another for the support of their child or children. Child support payments are typically made on a monthly basis and are intended to help cover the costs of food, clothing, housing, medical care, and education.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is continual abusive behavior with one partner having the goal of gaining power and control over another partner through fear and intimidation. There are many different types of domestic violence, including physical abuse, verbal abuse, emotional abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse, and more.


Mediation is a process in which two or more parties attempt to reach an agreement on a dispute through the use of a neutral third party (the mediator). The mediator will work with both parties to help them reach an agreement that is acceptable to all parties involved. This is in hopes of avoiding a lengthy battle in court.

Prenups and Postnups

A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into by two people before they get married. A postnuptial agreement is a contract entered into by two people after they are already married. Prenups and postnups typically address issues such as property division, spousal support/alimony, and more.

Divorce in New Jersey

There are many reasons that can cause a once-loving couple to pull the plug on their relationship and file for divorce. Sometimes they simply fall out of love with one another and can amicably part ways. New Jersey law allows for no-fault divorces, which means that parties do not have to state that one party did something wrong which led to the breakdown of the relationship. The couple could simply have irreconcilable differences with no reasonable prospect of reconciliation as a reason for divorce. There can be other reasons such as adultery, or physical abuse, and mental cruelty. For whatever reason the parties choose to divorce, they will have to settle on the consequences of the divorce, such as alimony, child custody, child support, and division of property.

How Can a Lawyer Help You?

The consequences of a divorce involve not only the emotional and physical separation of the parties, it involves such matters as the division of property and award of custody of minor children from the relationship. These issues can be very contentious and require the intervention of experienced family law attorneys who can help resolve the issues quickly while protecting the interests of their clients. Pursuing matters like alimony, child support, child custody, and division of property can pose some difficulty for the parties. These issues can be resolved through mediation or court process. At Nitti & Nitti our goal is to create customized solutions to resolve your legal issues. Our expertise in mediation offers you a streamlined family law process that will get you timely results at a reduced cost.
