Nathan R. May 17, 2022
Excellent, honest, and fair! Michael was my 3rd (and final) attorney for my divorce. He was exactly what I was looking for--an honest attorney who would tell me how it is in plain English and help me get a fair deal. I am extremely happy with how accessible, responsive, honest, fair, and thoughtful Michael was for me. I highly recommend and I know I'll be needing him for random issues post-divorce in the future. As a final note, going through a divorce is just an awful and confusing process. Mike really helped me out and made it bearable. My other attorneys were incompetent or just using me to rack up excessive fees. I'm very thankful to have found Mike and how much he helped me out.

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
53 Questions Answered
Q. My Son is 8. My ex wife and I have verbal agreements regarding parenting time. We have Joint Custody of our Son.
A: As his father, of course you have legal standing to bring a request to modify custody and parenting time to the Court - but your questions really isn't about legal standing. You want to know whether you will be successful against a stubborn adversary who isn't willing to see things the same way as you. In order to sort out the answer to that question, and/or formulate a workable strategy to maximize the chances that you can work things out to support your son's best interests, you will need a legal advocate who primarily practices family law that is both compassionate and tenacious. Research some of those attorneys and schedule some consultations until you speak with someone who you feel good about.
Q. My daughter is away to college in Tampa, mom lives in NY. I live in NJ, still paying child support, can I contest
A: Typically a child remains unemancipated for support purposes if he/she is a full time college student until age 23. Often child support is recalculated around the time a child lives away at college on campus, as the child support guidelines only apply to children residing at home with a parent. However, regular child support does not take into consideration college expenses, which are interrelated with child support, but not exactly the same thing. Ultimately, a court may determine that your child support obligation to your daughter's mother should decrease, but that you should pay a percentage of your daughter's college tuition and costs not covered by scholarships, grants, and other sources. You should probably bring your particular circumstances to a qualified family law attorney, to try to help you navigate what's in your and your daughter's best interests.
Q. Im looking to relocate with my daughter to Florida next year. I am divorced and would like to know what are my options.
A: You either need the written consent of the other parent, or a court order permitting you to relocate with the child out of state. If you don't have the other parent's consent, then I strongly suggest you consult with a qualified family law attorney.
