Our Family Law Services

Here at Lawrence Law, our New Jersey family law attorneys have a vast amount of experience in all facets of divorce and family law, including the following.

Contested & Uncontested Divorce

Whether your divorce is contested, meaning you can’t agree on your divorce terms, or uncontested, meaning you can agree on each aspect of your divorce, you need a competent family lawyer in your corner. Uncontested divorces can turn contested on a dime, and you need someone who is familiar with your case and who can quickly go on the offensive if need be.

Divorce Mediation

One of the best ways to resolve conflict in a divorce is through mediation. A divorce mediator is essentially an unbiased third party that you will appoint to facilitate productive conversation between you and your spouse in an effort to resolve all contested divorce-related issues, such as custody, alimony, child support, and more. Though a divorce mediator doesn’t technically have to be a lawyer, it is generally best to hire a lawyer as your mediator. The attorneys here at Lawrence Law have extensive experience working as divorce mediators on behalf of our clients, and we are prepared to put that experience to work for you in your case as well.

Divorce Arbitration

Divorce arbitration is a process where you and your spouse hire a neutral third party, called an arbitrator, to decide the issues of your divorce, such as property division, alimony, child support, and custody. Divorce arbitration has many benefits, such as flexibility, privacy, and cost.

Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce is another type of alternate divorce method, wherein a couple will appoint lawyers and other outside experts to help hash out their unresolved divorce-related issues. Commonly involved in collaborative divorces are financial professionals, child specialists, psychologists, real estate appraisers, tax consultants, business valuators, pension specialists, and more. The goal is for these parties to contribute their specialized knowledge to the discussion to help you work out a divorce agreement that makes sense for you both.


For many spouses, receiving alimony is a crucial part of retaining their standard of living after a divorce. Whether you’re hoping to receive alimony, wish to modify it, or have any other alimony-related concerns, Lawrence Law is here to help.

Palimony Suits

Our team of dedicated family lawyers understands the unique challenges faced by individuals seeking to enforce or defend their rights to financial support in non-marital relationships. We diligently investigate the history of the relationship, financial contributions, and agreements to build a compelling case on behalf of our clients.

Child Custody, Parenting Time & Visitation

As a parent, nothing is more important to you than the well-being of your child. We are here to listen to your concerns and protect the best interests of your child at every turn.

Child Support

As the custodial parent, you most likely require financial support from the non-custodial parent. If you’re facing a child support dispute or wish to modify your existing support agreement, look no further than Lawrence Law.


Here at Lawrence Law, we believe that every child deserves a loving and stable home. Our firm is proud to offer comprehensive services to guide families through the transformative process of adoption.


Whether you are looking to become the guardian of an incapacitated loved one or want to appoint a guardian to care for your child, should you ever be unable to do so on your own, you can have confidence in your decision to turn to Lawrence Law to guide you through the process.

Post-Divorce Modification & Enforcement

If you’re looking to modify the terms of your child custody, child support, or alimony agreement, Lawrence Law is here to help. Contact a family lawyer from our firm today so we can assess your case and determine whether a modification is in order. Additionally, if your ex refuses to comply with any aspect of your divorce agreement, our firm can work to enforce it.

Prenuptial Agreements

One of the best ways to protect your hard-earned assets is by drafting a prenuptial agreement prior to marriage. Lawrence Law has extensive experience helping clients draft these agreements, and we can put that experience to work for you.

Postnuptial Agreements

A postnuptial agreement is a legal contract that spouses sign after they get married to define their rights and responsibilities regarding certain property. If you’re interested in drafting such an agreement with your spouse, reach out to our firm today.

Property Division

When a couple divorces in New Jersey, if they can’t agree on a property settlement, the court will divide their marital property in a way that is fair, but not necessarily equal. This is because New Jersey follows the principle of equitable distribution. Lawrence Law can help protect the property that means the most to you.

High Net Worth Divorce

Divorcing couples who possess over $1 million in assets are in what is known as a high net worth divorce. With so much on the line, it is imperative that you retain the services of a competent New Jersey family lawyer.

Domestic Violence & Sexual Abuse

Nothing is more devastating than feeling unsafe in your own home. However, though things may feel overwhelming now, help is on the way. Lawrence Law is here to guide you to safety and bring the abusive or violent individual to justice.
