Family Law Issues We Can Help You Resolve 

The Law Offices of Lazaro Carvajal provides effective representation for a full spectrum of family law issues including:

DIVORCE: Choosing to end a marriage or partnership is never easy. Lazaro Carvajal provides the strategic guidance you need to make informed decisions at every stage in the divorce process on matters related to equitable marital property division, alimony or spousal support, child custody and visitation/parenting time, and child support. Whether your divorce is amicable or contested, you can expect Mr. Carvajal to represent your interests and draft and file all the relevant paperwork with the court including the initial divorce complaint, property settlement agreement, and other key documents.

PROPERTY DIVISION/EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION: New Jersey follows the equitable distribution approach to property division. This means assets and debts accumulated during the marriage must be divided “equitably.” “Equitably” doesn’t necessarily mean equal but rather what is fair. Mr. Carvajal has extensive experience handling simple and complex asset and debt distribution matters, including those involving high net worth. From the marital home to vehicles to retirement and investment accounts, he knows how to protect what is rightfully yours.

CHILD CUSTODY AND PARENTING TIME:The stakes are always a bit higher when there are children involved in a divorce. Mr. Carvajal will work with you and your child’s other parent to negotiate a fair custody agreement and parenting plan that is in the best interests of your child. If at any point you feel as if your parental rights are being threatened or the needs of your child aren’t being met, Mr. Carvajal will aggressively fight on your behalf in court.

CHILD SUPPORT: When parents separate or divorce in New Jersey, they are still legally obligated to provide financial support for their child(ren). In most cases, the noncustodial parent is ordered to make monetary payments to the custodial parent. The amount of child support is determined using the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines which takes into account the income of both parents, ages of the children, the amount of spousal support paid or received, as well as other factors.

Mr. Carvajal has experience in calculating, negotiating, enforcing, and amending child support payments. You can count on him to pursue an agreement that is fair and geared towards safeguarding your child(ren)s future.

ALIMONY/SPOUSAL SUPPORT: Alimony or spousal support is an amount of money one spouse pays to the other during or after the dissolution of a marriage or civil union. Whether you are seeking alimony or anticipate having to pay, Mr. Carvajal can present the facts of your case in a compelling and persuasive manner to ensure that the child support orders meet your financial needs or capabilities.

PROTECTION/HARASSMENT RESTRAINING ORDERS: Living in fear of someone else harming you or being accused of doing harm can be devastating. Mr. Carvajal assists individuals seeking or contesting an order for protection or harassment restraining order.
