Biography

I help people with complex legal, financial, and personal issues during what is often the most traumatic times of their lives.

A worked as a Senior Probation Officer in Child Support Enforcement while attending Law School at night at Temple University, Beasley School of Law. In law school, I received various awards. I was a Law Faculty Scholar, a member of the prestigious Temple Law Review, and an award-winning member of the Moot Court Honor Society.

After law school, I clerked for two wonderful judges: the Hon. Mary Jacobson, who is currently the Mercer County Assignment Judge, and the Hon. Catherine Fitzpatrick. Both of these judges was the Presiding Judge of the Mercer County Family Part at the time of my clerkships. I practiced Family Law at a distinguished New Jersey law firm for the decade following my clerkships, before establishing Conte Family Law LLC in 2021.

Conte Family Law LLC is focused exclusively on New Jersey Divorce and Family Law matters, including child custody, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution of assets and debts, and all other similar legal matters.

Legal Answers
40 Questions Answered
Q. Sons wife filed for divorce, finalized 10/29/2020. Unfortunately he 52 yo passed 3/2/21
A: I would reach out to an attorney who handles estates matters. I sounds like your son's estate probably has a claim against his former spouse for the funds that were supposed to be transferred to him pursuant to the divorce decree. I don't understand the part of your question about the 3/21 pension share... It sounds like that has to do with an alimony obligation or something, if his ex-wife was not receiving a pension payment directly pursuant to a QDRO of your son's pension. I'm not sure if his estate would be liable to her for some portion of a payment that was never made prior to his death. Again, the right person to try to help you with this sort of thing would be a lawyer specializing in estates.
Q. How do I get hold of a last will and testament, my mother says I'm in the will, but my aunts wouldnt share that info
A: Contact the Surrogate’s Office of the county where the deceased person lived.
Q. If a father is not on birth certificate in new jersey does he have legal rights
A: If you believe you are the father of the child in question, you can file a case in family court to establish paternity of the child. If the court determines that you are the father of the child, then you would have the legal right to seek parenting time, while you would simultaneously have the legal obligation to help to financially support the child.
