Experienced New Jersey Family Law & Divorce Attorneys
Divorce | Custody and Visitation | Support | Property Settlements | Suits Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship | Domestic Violence
If you have children, grandchildren or there is a child you care about who is in trouble or your relationship is on the rocks, whether you’re married or not, you’ll need to protect your rights to custody, visitation and support and to Joint Property. As a parent, grandparent or psychological parent, you want what’s best for the children and grandchildren that you love, and you want to continue be a meaningful presence in and part of their lives. Unfortunately, the emotions that come when a relationship ends can make it hard to know what’s really best for you and your children. You want an experienced and compassionate lawyer, with creative ideas to guide you through the process.
Mark P. McAuliffe has more than 25 years of experience protecting the rights of Parents and children, Husbands and Wives, Grandparents, Psychological Parents, and Same Sex Couples in New Jersey.
Mark will Mediate Family and Divorce disputes if you prefer mediation. He will meet with both parties to help you craft your own resolution without the need and substantial cost of litigation in court. We will always work to resolve your differences amicably, particularly when you have minor children involved.
Unfortunately things do not always work out that way. Mark’s reputation as an aggressive Trial Lawyer is an indispensable asset to any person faced with a court hearing regarding custody or parenting time with a child, spousal support and child support, the end of a relationship, domestic violence, equitable distribution of property, divorce, child abuse, neglect, termination of parental Rights, adoption, and Juvenile Court matters.
Parents who are charged with Child Abuse, Neglect or who face Termination of their Parental Rights are entitled to a zealous legal defense. Mark routinely appears as attorney for Parents in Title 9, Title 30 and Parental Termination matters throughout the State of New Jersey. Trial Advocacy is crucial in these proceedings as there is a tendency to disregard the rights of parents in the face of allegations of Child Abuse or neglect. Bias in any forum is unacceptable, and Mark proudly fights for parents rights to raise their children in these proceedings.
Mark has been a Panelist Chair in the Family Part Early Settlement Panel Program in Bergen County since 2000. He is a Barrister in the Barry Croland Family Law Inn of Court, a member of the American Bar Association Family Law Committee, the Bergen County Bar Association Family Law Committee, and a former Vice President of the Allendale Board of Education. Mark was employed as Assistant Prosecutor in the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office where he served in the Juvenile and Trial Divisions and handled Juvenile Delinquency, Domestic Violence and Gun Forfeiture Matters on behalf of the State.
