Chapter: New Jersey

The New Jersey Chapter of the AAML welcomes you!

We are the New Jersey chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (“AAML”), which is a national group of lawyers who practice divorce and family law. 

In 1962, a small group of nationally known divorce/family lawyers met in Chicago, Illinois to discuss the need to humanize and to dignify the most traumatic area of family relations. These lawyers founded the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers to improve the practice of divorce and family law. Fellows of the Academy concentrate their practice in all issues related to family law:

Divorce & Collaborative Divorce
Custody & Timesharing
Custody - removal actions to another state or country
Hague Convention & International Custody Issues
Termination of Parental Rights
DYFS case defense
Grandparents' rights
