Family Law for Men
Family law cases can be challenging emotionally, mentally, and financially. Many men dealing with a family law issue don’t receive the support they deserve from friends, family, the community, or their attorney. Brad Micklin has set out to change the way men in New Jersey experience family law cases. Brad believes men and fathers in the midst of a divorce, child custody case, or other family law matter deserve to be supported and uplifted.
Divorce consulting can help you understand all the decisions you’ll need to make during the divorce process: the documents and records you should choose to collect, what kind of property settlement is in your best interest, and questions around custody and financial support of your children. Let our attorneys guide you through the emotionally and legally challenging process of seeking a divorce in New Jersey. You don’t have to go through this alone.
Custody for Men
Many fathers’ main concern is their children, so a child custody case can be extremely emotionally trying. The Micklin Law Group doesn’t just provide legal representation to our clients. We also provide them with resources to help them get through this challenging time in their life. We know how important your kids are, which is why our attorneys will advocate for your custody rights as a father in New Jersey.
Divorcing a Narcissist
Divorcing your narcissist spouse will require you to be extremely patient, determined and courageous. Narcissists will not get over the divorce easily, and they’re used to getting their way. Learning how to pick your battles and when to stand your ground can help you get through the proceedings without feeling manipulated.
Child Support Lawyer for Men
Whether you are facing a paternity action or you are involved in a divorce, our dedicated child support attorneys at The Micklin Law Group, LLC are here to help. We can walk you through New Jersey’s child support guidelines and help you understand how the financials will play out in your situation.
Division of Property
Dividing property during marriage is often a contentious issue with an unhappy outcome for both parties. The Micklin Law Group’s New Jersey property division attorneys put forth great effort on behalf of our clients, fighting for what is rightfully theirs and advocating for their best interests.
In the past, divorced men in New Jersey have suffered through years of high spousal support payments. We believe spousal support/alimony payments shouldn’t financially burden you each month. The family court’s ruling should be as fair as possible, and we’re dedicated to making that happen for our clients.

Divorcing a Narcissist?
Experts estimate that about 5% of women and 8% of men have narcissistic personality disorder. Although not as common as other personality disorders, narcissists can make divorce an emotionally-exhausting uphill battle for you. Ultimately, narcissists are only interested in themselves. This mentality can make it difficult for you to communicate and negotiate during a divorce. Yes, divorcing a narcissist is never easy, but before you slap this label on your partner, it’s important to have a better understanding of what a narcissist is.

Common Questions About New Jersey Divorce for Men
You must submit a “Complaint for Divorce/Dissolution” in the county where the reason for the divorce occurred (for example, where the separation ended).
Each divorce is unique, and we simply can’t account for all variables. You can keep costs down by hiring an experienced attorney who’s committed to helping you reach a resolution.
Your divorce could be resolved in a matter of months, but it can last much longer in the case of a high conflict divorce.
No, a separation is not legally required if you file for divorce due to irreconcilable differences. There are also fault options, such as adultery, that don’t require separation.
To file irreconcilable differences, you must assert that differences have persisted at least six months. This is generally subjective and comes with a fairly low burden of proof.
Reasons such as adultery, a prolonged separation, irreconcilable differences, and extreme cruelty are all legal grounds for a divorce.
Commonly, separating involves negotiating a settlement agreement which is legally binding when signed by both parties. It can resolve spousal support, custody, and other issues.
Generally, spouses can choose how they’d like to divide their marital assets. If the parties can’t reach an agreement, the court will determine how assets are divided.
After filing, your attorney will help you disclose the financials of your marriage. You will either reach a settlement with your spouse or go to court to resolve the divorce.
It can be beneficial for you to file first, since you’ll get to make your initial demands and your spouse will be required to respond to those requests.
