Retained Lenny Cohen on a recommendation from a close friend. Immediately I felt comfortable in dealing with my divorce, and I was married over 30 years! Always sound advice, he never rushed me into a settlement, always returned my calls, and never overcharged, as I have heard horror stories of other attorney's. My ex wife actually went up to him after the divorce was final, and said, she wished she had him for an attorney!! It was like talking to good friend over a couple of drinks!! Highly recommended!!

Leonard Cohen was referred by another wonderful attorney. He was able to bring finality to a complex and painful divorce for my brother. He is professional, understanding, and sincere. Divorce is difficult enough, especially for the children. It matters to have an attorney who is intelligent and experienced. I highly recommend Leonard; Dunne, Dunne & Cohen; along with their dedicated and helpful staff.

Divorce

Our divorce lawyers understand that every relationship is different and there are many considerations to take into account when approaching such a complex legal issue. The team at our law firm tries to help clients maintain good relationships with their ex-spouse if possible and always strive to prioritize what is best for the children.

Legal Separation

A legal separation in New Jersey does not require a formal spousal complaint. With documented agreements concerning child custody, visitation, and support, you can take some time apart without formally dissolving the marriage. Our family law attorneys can also offer assistance in annulments.

Spousal Support (Alimony)

Divorce proceedings often require one spouse to make payments to the other to support their previous standard of living. When determining spousal support payments, our family law attorneys can help clients understand several factors the court takes into consideration when determining the amount of payment.

Child Custody, Visitation Rights, and Child Support

When a former couple has to consider the wellbeing of their children, matters involving living situations, contact schedules, and financial support may heighten the tension. When approaching custody, visitation rights, and child support payments, our lawyers strive to help clients determine what is in the best interest of their children.

Domestic Violence

Abuse of a household member, spouse, or child can bring criminal charges against the offender. In such cases, the children’s living situation might involve the Division of Youth and Family Services. Our attorneys can protect those who have suffered abuse or protect the rights of those who have been accused of abuse.

Prenuptial Agreements

Clients interested in protecting what they have earned before marriage can benefit from a prenuptial agreement from our Hoboken area law offices. A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract agreed upon prior to a marriage that determines the terms of property distribution if the marriage ends. In other words, this agreement takes precedence in the settlement.

Child Protection and Permanency

A client under suspicion of child abuse or neglect will have to contend with the New Jersey state agency of Child Protection and Permanency. In such cases, an attorney with an understanding of New Jersey family law can help you navigate state regulations in order to help you find the best solution for you and your children.

Equitable Distribution of Property

When a couple goes through a divorce or separation in New Jersey, the distribution of assets such as real estate requires a fair but not necessarily 50/50 split. Distribution is decided by the court, and in each case, the length of the marriage, assets, debts, property, and children are all taken into consideration. Our divorce lawyers can assist clients in retaining what is rightfully their property.

Parental Alienation

In a divorce or separation, sometimes a child is manipulated by one parent into shunning or fearing the other parent. The state of New Jersey considers this abusive and our attorneys can help put the law to work for you. Our law firm can help you take action against the offending parent or family member so that you can receive the time with your children that you deserve.

Relocation Out of and within the State

Before one parent can move out of state with a child, he or she must obtain the formal consent of the other parent or permission from the court. Moving within the state, but far enough away to warrant alteration of court orders, also requires parental consent or court permission. Our team of family law specialists can assist you with a custody modification if you need to relocate or have an ex-spouse trying to relocate with your children.
