New Jersey Attorneys for Dissolution of Domestic Partnerships

Divorce and Family Lawyers Serving Clients in Morris County and New Jersey

Ending a domestic partnership in New Jersey is an emotional process, but it is also a legal one. To dissolve your domestic partnership, you will need to deal with some of the same issues that a married couple goes through in a divorce.

At Townsend, Tomaio & Newmark, L.L.C., our domestic partnership lawyers have years of experience in the area of family law and domestic partnerships. If you are dissolving a domestic partnership or civil union, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions. We represent domestic partners in Morristown, Newark and other New Jersey communities.

Domestic Partnerships, Civil Unions and Same-Sex Marriage in New Jersey

New Jersey has had domestic partnerships for same-sex couples and opposite-sex couples aged 62 or older since 2004. The law was amended in 2007 with the Civil Union Act. As of 2013, same-sex couples in New Jersey are allowed to marry.

To dissolve a New Jersey domestic partnership or civil union, you and your partner will need to deal with issues such as:

  • Division of assets: Assets accumulated during your partnership, including retirement benefits, will be divided according to the law of equitable distribution, regardless of who earned the money or whose name is on the account, depending on the circumstances and whether you are in a domestic partnership or civil union.
  • Support: Depending on your financial circumstances, one partner may be responsible for providing support to the other for a period of time.
  • Child custody: If you have children, you and your spouse will need an arrangement for child custody, visitation and child support.

Our family law attorneys will guide you through the legal steps of dissolving a domestic partnership or civil union and protect your interests at every step of the way.

We also represent couples looking to end a same-sex marriage in New Jersey.
