From start to finish, we work side-by-side with our clients to identify reasonable objectives and achieve the best possible results.
We represent spouses in New Jersey and nationally in high net worth and high profile divorces. Our representation for clients has not simply followed the law, it has helped to shape it. We look to solve problems, not create them. We understand that our client’s privacy is paramount. Clients place their trust in our lawyers to protect themselves and their families, and we work hard to earn and keep it. We strive to identify creative solutions to resolve matters amicably, while being prepared to litigate when necessary.
Uniquely positioned as thought leaders in the field, we use our expertise to counsel clients and advocate on their behalf. We are the co-author of the leading family law treatise in New Jersey, The New Jersey Family Law Practice. We author and lecture on the complexities involved in representing clients with significant estates, including the treatment of trusts in divorce, business valuation, identifying hidden assets and income, and the protection of separate property. We handle all aspects of custody, visitation, and paternity issues, and do so with the sensitivity each particular case demands. We are the co-authors of Drafting Prenuptial Agreements and counsel clients in the negotiation and drafting of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Our track record for clients led U.S. News – Best Lawyers to repeatedly name our family law group as one of the Best Law Firms and leading family law practices in New Jersey. Our attorneys are regularly identified by New Jersey Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers, Law Dragon Top 500, and other publications as family law leaders in New Jersey and nationally. We have served as Chairs of numerous local, state, and national family law associations, including the American Bar Association Family Law Section, American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (New Jersey Chapter), New Jersey State Bar Association Family Law Section, and New Jersey Family Law Inns of Court.
At Skoloff & Wolfe, we work tirelessly to navigate our clients and their families through the divorce process and to protect what is most important to them.
High Net Worth Divorce
Skoloff & Wolfe’s singular experience representing high net worth individuals and handling either side in high-profile divorce cases makes us uniquely qualified to represent either spouse in high net worth and high-profile divorces.
Arguably the most difficult part of any divorce or separation is the impact it will have on the children. That’s why it’s critical to have an experienced family law attorney representing your interests and child custody concerns.
Our attorneys have significant experience handling divorce cases that involve considerable financial assets and business interests. In doing so, we are regularly called upon to represent parents on issues related to above-guidelines child support.
When a married couple in New Jersey elects to separate before deciding to divorce, it is important to understand that New Jersey, unlike some jurisdictions, has no formal status for “legal” separation.
While litigation is at times unavoidable, it is always preferable to resolve matters amicably. As part of our representation of divorcing spouses, we frequently work with our clients to select an appropriate mediator and represent them throughout the mediation. Skoloff & Wolfe also provides mediation services for divorcing couples represented by other law firms.
