Even a seemingly simple divorce can become complex and contentious, especially around issues such as child custody, parenting time, child support, alimony, closely-held family businesses, deferred compensation, and other family law matters.
Throughout our many years of experience representing clients in divorce cases in and around the Hackensack area, we’ve found that agreements reached between the parties (rather than imposed by a judge) are more lasting and less likely to generate post-judgment litigation. However, when agreement between the parties is not possible, we zealously litigate on your behalf at the trial and appellate levels, if required.
At Cowen & Jacobs, we always take the time to explain the legal framework of your case and encourage questions about the procedures and law governing the issues arising from your divorce. Knowledge is power. Armed with knowledge and secure in our legal skills, our clients feel safe and confident in pursuing all issues that may arise in their case.
In a divorce where one or both spouses have a high income and have a substantial net worth, the complex financial issues that arise are less likely to be resolved entirely through alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation. While we guide our divorce clients through the settlement process favored by the Family Part of the Superior Court, we are always prepared to skillfully and tenaciously litigate all issues not resolved through mediation.
Throughout our 35 years of legal experience, our family law attorneys have acquired extensive legal experience in highly sophisticated financial matters related to family law. We explore the tax consequences of all financial decisions made within the context of a complex divorce and work with forensic accountants, financial advisors, tax attorneys, and other experts to ensure that all financial issues are fully identified and thoroughly examined.
Since New Jersey is an equitable distribution state and not a community property state, your equitable share of the marital estate may not be 50%—it could be more, or less. Our goal is always to ensure that you receive your equitable share of the marital estate.
We have a proven track record of success with simple and complex divorce cases in Hackensack, NJ, as well as cases throughout New Jersey, including Passaic County, Hudson County, and Essex County. Contact us today for a free and confidential consultation.
You need a winning divorce attorney with the resources, knowledge, and experience required to help structure a comprehensive settlement or to litigate on your behalf in divorce court.

Family law is one of the most complex and emotionally challenging legal practices. Each divorce presents a unique combination of facts and circumstances that are addressed through Cowen & Jacobs’s specialized knowledge of the law and court procedures. Additionally, though the parties getting divorced are often emotionally fragile and under stress, we understand that divorce affects more than just the couple; it may also negatively affect their children. We therefore try to avoid protracted litigation which is contrary to the children’s psychological best interests as well as being an emotional and financial drain on the parties.
Our primary focus at Cowen & Jacobs is representing your interests and helping you move forward with your life as financially sound a state as possible while trying to mitigate the stress on you and your children. We achieve both goals by keeping you informed of your case’s progress and provide you with prompt access to us during both business and after-business hours via telephone, email, and text messages.
