There are more than 17,000 attorneys who are members of the New Jersey Bar Association. An overwhelming number of attorneys practice matrimonial law in N.J. and choosing one that’s right for you may seem like a daunting task.
Fortunately, the New Jersey Supreme Court provides certification for matrimonial attorneys who meet requirements for experience, skill, and knowledge in matrimonial law. To obtain this rigorous certification, an attorney must demonstrate that he or she has practiced matrimonial law for at least five years, has a wide berth of experience in matrimonial law, and has completed continuing legal education courses. Attorneys must also obtain favorable evaluations from judges and fellow attorneys and pass a lengthy written exam about matrimonial law.
Why Does Certification Matter?
Only 2% of all New Jersey attorneys are certified in matrimonial law. These select few attorneys have proven that not only do they have experience, but they also have proven their knowledge and shown that they are highly respected by their peers and the judges they practice before . A certified matrimonial attorney is someone who offers unparalleled expertise and wisdom to clients in this highly specialized area of law.

- Child support
- Mediation and alternative dispute resolution
