New Jersey family lawyer Katherine Wagner has years of experience handling matters relating to child support. New Jersey follows codified Child Support Guidelines, which generally set child support obligations based upon the incomes of the parties. However, the Guidelines have many exceptions, and the circumstances of each case and each family require individual attention and care. Ms. Wagner is well-versed in New Jersey law and will work to ensure that your children are protected financially and that your rights as a parent are protected.
New Jersey does not have specific alimony guidelines. It does, however, have several different forms of alimony, which are determined on a case-by-case basis. Ms. Wagner has decades of experience representing parties on both sides of the equation, and she will ensure proper payment and receipt of a fair and just alimony award.
If your ex-partner fails to live up to their end of the bargain per the terms of a divorce settlement or order, you have the right to seek enforcement of your rights in court. The Law Offices of Katherine Wagner are here to help you, whether that means filing a motion to enforce, a motion for contempt, or an appeal of an issue that was incorrectly decided by a judge.
With divorce rates soaring, it is important to protect premarital and/or family assets from the strict equitable distribution dictates of divorce law in New Jersey. Whether you are going to become a first-time spouse or if this is a second or third marriage, Ms. Wagner can draft and prepare a prenuptial agreement to ensure a fair division of property and other related issues should the marriage end in divorce.
Separation agreements in New Jersey are generally drafted following an agreement on all issues that might be raised in a divorce.

Ms. Wagner will ensure that your agreement is comprehensive, thorough and in your best interests.
