Maintenance / Alimony

After years of marriage, we understand that our clients have become accustomed to a certain standard of living. When one partner decides to pursue a divorce, it can be financially damaging to an unsuspecting partner. At Dame Legal, our partners will guide our clients through the process of pursuing alimony cases during their divorce proceedings.


Child Custody & Visitation

In the event of divorce and separation, children are at risk for the most hurt. At Dame Legal, we prioritize and diligently protect our clients’ parental rights to safeguard children, ensure a safe and supportive home, and maintain a suitable relationship with parents.

Child Custody

Child Support Modification & Enforcement

Our firm understands that original child support agreements may not be practical forever. As the financial situations of parents often change, we will work to present an equitable modification to the original child support agreement.

Child Support & Modifications


Throughout the mediation process, clients have the added benefit of quicker and unsurprising results. With the help of our experienced negotiators, we will guide you through the process while ensuring you walk away with a fair divorce settlement.



At DAME Legal, we help our clients navigate divorce through both litigation and mediation avenues. Through your divorce, we will work with you to establish a plan that fairly divides assets, the future of the marital home, child custody rights, and related child support payments.


International Divorce

Divorce is complicated enough without international assets, dual-citizenships, and multiple residencies abroad. If you or your spouse are considering filing for divorce and you have global connections, you are strongly advised to consult an attorney with experience in this complex area of the law.

From the time I walked in I realized I had found the right attorneys for me.

Bill from Saddle River

Shelley and her team got me my child back from a non-Hague country. She was there at the worse time in my life for tears on her shoulder and there in the best time in my life when she hugged my daughter as she got off of the plane.

M.M. New York

Ron knew the value of my case, when to fight, what to say and how to say it. He got me ten times more then I thought I would receive.

Juan from Hackensack

Patrick and I went to trial on my matter. Only on T.V. have I ever seen someone with as much command of the courtroom, respect of the Judge, and the ability to get through to the Jury.

Happy Customer

Marilyn is the best Family attorney in the State. That is all you need to know.

Steve from Verona

I never felt like a commodity. I was part of the team.

Mercedes from Jersey City

Pat settled my case and I was set for the rest of my life.

A.R. Hackensack

I was facing the best years of my life incarcerated. Shelley was there for me and my family the entire time. When we got a not-guilty verdict and I told her “you did it,” Shelley shot back with a “WE DID IT !”

Joe from New York

Don’t be taken back by Amanda’s youth. She has the wisdom of George Washington and the wit of George Carlin.

Robert – Paramus

The best thing I can say about Paul is beware the quiet ones. His knowledge of the law outwits all of his adversaries.

Jamie from Montclair
I would like to thank you for your superior and knowledgeable service. This was my first time being in a traffic incident of any type. Your pleasant, polite and reassuring voice really put me at ease.
