Bergen County NJ Divorce Attorneys

Divorce and Family Lawyers with Offices in Hackensack, New Jersey


When divorcing, “place” becomes far more important than you might expect. Your place of residence has significant implications for the concerns you may face, such as your child custody arrangement, business ownership, or place of residence, and more practically, it determines the court in which your case will be adjudicated and the selection of judges who may preside over your divorce proceedings. In order to position yourself for the most desirable outcome, it is advisable to seek an attorney who regularly appears in the court in which your divorce case will be decided, as he or she will most likely be familiar with the judges and general court procedure that is specific to this court.
