Certified Matrimonial Attorney
Why You Need One
When a marriage ends and divorce is imminent, it is wise to have the best guidance you can while navigating the complex journey, with all of its twists and turns. The end of a marriage can be an emotionally charged time fraught with difficult decisions and unknown outcomes. With the right attorney, you can protect yourself and your family, and emerge unscathed.
If you are considering a divorce, a certified matrimonial attorney will be your strongest ally as you seek to protect yourself, your family, and your finances. In New Jersey, there are an estimated 75,000 active attorneys and only 1,650 of those are certified.
Other benefits of choosing a certified attorney include the ability to ensure that you are making the best possible and informed decision when choosing legal representation. The New Jersey Supreme Court has strict criteria for an attorney to become certified, including:
- Taking and passing a written examination in matrimonial law.
- Fulfilling ongoing, continuing legal education requirements.
- Being a member in good standing of the New Jersey Bar for more than five years.
- Demonstrating substantial experience in matrimonial law.
- Receiving favorable evaluation by other attorneys and judges.
- Maintaining and improving their competence in their field.
New Jersey began its certification program to offer the public transparency about the competence and experience an attorney possesses. Certification by the NJ Supreme Court ensures that clients can expect the highest standard of care.
