Parenting Time, Custody

While some may consider the practice of family law to be about providing legal counsel through the divorce process, we prefer to see it as being about helping individuals and their families move on to the next stage of their lives. This is true whether a case involves the dissolution of a marriage, adjustments to post-judgment matters, child support, domestic violence or even prenuptial agreements and adoption.


A Compassionate Approach

Our approach to family law involves blending our legal experience with a true understanding of what you may be going through. “Winning” at family law involves more than just obtaining favorable decisions or settlements; it means helping individuals get through the legal process as quickly, as painlessly and as cost effectively as possible. We accomplish this by applying three simple concepts. First, we listen. Truly listen. Second, we communicate. Our attorneys are readily accessible, and because we are small, firm staff members are most often already familiar with your case. Hence, we are available virtually 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And finally, we are honest. We will always give you straightforward answers to questions about the prospects for a successful outcome, timing and what you may expect as the process moves forward.


Experienced Attorneys

Of course, no description of our family law services would be complete without an overview of our credentials. For over 20 years, Underwood & Micklin has been helping individuals throughout the South Jersey area on matters pertaining to child custody, the equitable distribution of assets, child support, alimony, visitation or any of the many other types of family law issues. Together, our attorneys have over 35 years of experience in this area of the law. We have advocated at all levels of the New Jersey Court system. Most important, we are very proud of the highly successful outcomes we have been able to achieve on behalf of our family law clients.


An Approach That’s Right for You

Every individual is different as is every case. That is why Underwood & Micklin will work with you to determine whether a matter requires litigation or might be best settled through some kind of dispute resolution alternative such as arbitration or mediation.
