Divorce And Family Law

Getting a divorce is stressful and choosing a divorce lawyer can only add to that. After all, your divorce attorney is the person you will be relying on and trusting to help you make important decisions about your future — and possibly those of your children.

It is good to educate yourself on New Jersey divorce laws by using online tools. It is critical that your lawyer stays up to date on the changes in family law, such as marital rights for same-sex couples and limits on the length of alimony. Mike Farhi's blogs on this website are a great starting point to learn what is happening in this practice area.

It is also important to determine the type of attorney you want. Someone who is aggressive and will fight for you, or who will simply put paperwork through?

"Michael Farhi represented me in my post-divorce proceedings. He's an experienced attorney and truly understands disputes concerning child custody and the extensive list of other matters relating to divorce. My case was unique and highly contentious, even after my divorce was final. Mr. Farhi took a creative approach, pointing out the immediate and long-term goals. He sought to find ways to resolve disputes for the best interest of my child and in the most efficient manner possible. As a result of his creative and proactive approach, I was able to avoid additional litigation, which helped minimize the financial and emotional stress and burden this has caused me. In addition, he was accessible on every occasion when I needed to reach out to him for legal guidance. He is highly competent, trustworthy and kind."
