Matrimonial

Hartmann Doherty’s matrimonial practice group counsels individuals, heterosexual and same- sex couples, in both New Jersey and New York, in a wide range of matters involving personal, emotional and sensitive legal issues that affect every aspect of families in transition including without limitation contested and uncontested divorces, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, separation agreements, custody and access rights, paternity issues, adoptions (including step- parent and second parent adoptions), reproductive and fertility matters, cohabitation agreements, domestic violence proceedings, termination of parental rights, name change proceedings, child abduction proceedings and grandparent visitation proceedings. While recognizing that each of our client’s cases is unique, our attorneys are qualified to handle both routine and complex cases involving individuals from the worlds of business, finance, the professions, government and entertainment in both out-of-court negotiated settlements, through protracted litigation and through the mediation and collaborative processes. Hartmann Doherty’s attorneys have extensive experience with complex valuation issues including without limitation the valuation of careers, celebrity status, stock options, restricted stock units, businesses and degrees. The matrimonial lawyers are fortunate to work closely with our outstanding corporate, real estate, criminal and trust and estates departments to not only evaluate assets, such as closely held businesses, but to also ensure our clients are given the best advice possible on all of their cases.
