Family Law


We are experienced in litigating a wide range of family law cases including:

  • Divorce
  • Dissolution of Civil Unions
  • Termination of Domestic Partnerships
  • Child Support
  • Custody
  • Domestic Violence
  • Adoption/Readoption
  • Post Divorce Judgment Enforcement and Modification issues

We can assure that all paperwork filed with the court is complete and complies with the applicable law and court rules.  We will negotiate with the adverse party to obtain a favorable result for our clients.  When negotiation does not result in the desired outcome for our clients, we are prepared to appear in court and try cases.


Jane A. Herchenroder, Esquire is a trained mediator who volunteers as a custody mediator at the Somerset County Courthouse and serves as a Post Early Settlement Panel Economic mediator for divorce cases in New Jersey.  Jane also mediates family cases privately.  Couples who choose private mediation can mediate family cases including prenuptial agreements, parenting time schedules, and financial issues.  Private mediation can be less costly than contested litigation.


Jane A. Herchenroder, Esquire, has five reported New Jersey appellate decisions, including one in the New Jersey Supreme Court.  All five cases have resulted in precedent setting family law decisions.  We represent clients who have obtained unfavorable trial court decisions who seek a reversal on appeal.  We also represent clients who have obtained favorable trial court decision where their adversary appeals and our client is asking the Appellate Division to uphold the trial court decision.
