With a focus on family law, our Somerset divorce lawyers at the Law Offices of Kisha M. Hebbon, LLCoffer a full array of top quality legal services for families in New Jersey. By combining a strong knowledge of New Jersey family law with a commitment to achieving peaceful and favorable resolutions to family issues, we are equipped to handle even the most complex and emotionally charged cases.

  • Abuse and Neglect/DCPP (formerly DYFS) Matters

New Jersey’s Division of Child Protection and Permanancy (DCPP) provides child welfare and child protection services to ensure the safety and well-being of children in New Jersey. Our Somerset family lawyers represent parents in cases brought by DCPP regarding abuse and neglect, parental rights, custody and guardianship.

  • Adoption

If you are considering adoption, we can help. Our attorneys will guide you through the complex laws that govern adoption in New Jersey, including those related to private adoptions, third party adoptions, same-sex couple adoptions and birth parent rights.

  • Alimony

Determining the amount and duration of spousal support payments can be highly subjective. We take into account every aspect of your unique situation to develop a plan that will protect your financial security.

  • Annulment

Annulment differs from divorce in that it erases a marriage completely, rather than simply ending it. An annulment may be favorable for a variety of financial, personal or religious reasons, but it is not always easy to achieve. Couples who file for an annulment in New Jersey must prove to the court that valid grounds for annulment exist. Our Somerset divorce lawyers have experience in successfully handling annulment cases in New Jersey.

  • Child Custody

Determining child custody arrangements is often the most contentious and heart wrenching aspect of a split. Our Somerset child custody lawyers strive for peaceful and amicable resolutions that are favorable for our clients and in the best interest of the children. We also handle cases that involve grandparents’ rights to visitation.

  • Child Relocation

Relocating with a child after divorce can present a multitude of legal issues. Laws regarding relocation of children are very complex, and is essential that you hire a skilled New Jersey divorce lawyer with the knowledge and experience to successfully represent you.

  • Child Support

All parents have a financial responsibility to support their children. We will fight aggressively to ensure that your children’s financial needs will be met, now and in their future.

  • Civil Unions

Though New Jersey laws protecting the rights of same-sex couples and transgender couples are certainly moving in the right direction, they are still in a stage of evolution. Our Somerset family lawyers keep up-to-date with the ever-changing laws, and always strive for the best possible outcome for the LGBT families we serve.

  • Divorce

Every marriage is unique; therefore, each divorce presents unique challenges. Our Somerset divorce lawyers are highly qualified and experienced in handling complicated divorce proceedings, including high-asset divorces and military divorces.

  • Domestic Violence

Our law firm is well-qualified to represent clients in domestic violence situations. We are a team of compassionate, dedicated legal professionals who are knowledgeable and experienced in both family law and criminal matters in New Jersey.

  • Equitable Distribution

New Jersey divorce law calls for an equitable division of marital assets; however, equitable does not always mean equal. Our experienced Somerset divorce lawyers are highly skilled at negotiating a fair division of assets for our clients.

  • Fathers’ Rights

If a father has concerns that his responsibility of being a caregiver or decision-maker will be diminished  by an imminent divorce, it is crucial that he seek out legal advocacy from a qualified fathers’ rights lawyer.

  • Grandparents’ Rights

Often times, grandparents play an important role in the growth and development of their grandchildren.  Sadly, when a divorce occurs, these relationships can be directly impacted causing severe emotional distress. Our grandparents’ rights attorneys handle situations in which grandparents wish to seek visitation or custody arrangements.

  • Juvenile Delinquency

Juvenile delinquency refers to crimes committed by kids and teenagers under the age of 18. In New Jersey, Family Court has jurisdiction over juvenile delinquency cases. It is essential that you hire a well-qualified attorney to represent your child in court. We will fight to protect your child’s rights and preserve his or her future.

  • Mediation

In some cases, divorce can drain people emotionally and financially. In such situations, mediation may provide a more peaceful and less expensive solution. We will review all your legal options and work closely with you to determine your best course of action.

  • Postnuptial Agreements

Many couples who do not have a prenuptial agreement in place before they marry may decide to draft a postnuptial agreement afterward for similar reasons. In many cases, the drafting of a postnuptial agreement can prove restorative to a couple’s marriage because it puts to rest any uncertainty regarding particular finances.

  • Prenuptial Agreements

Modern day prenuptial agreements are no longer cast in the same negative light that they once were. Today’s prenups are legally binding and equitable agreements designed to set clear financial parameters that can be referred to throughout the marriage. These agreements are carefully crafted with the assistance of an objective family lawyer.
