An Experienced, Understanding Attorney To Help You Resolve Issues Involving Children With Special Needs Is Important

As a parent of a child with unique mental or physical needs, you love your child regardless of the challenges that you face together.

I am family law attorney Diana L. Marin, and I can personally relate to what you and your family must overcome; I have a child of my own with special needs. The importance of safeguarding their future and making sure their needs are met today and in the future cannot be stressed enough.

Whether you are facing a child custody or child support matter, my firm can help. We assist all types of families, including families with special needs children in Morris County, Essex County, Bergen County and Passaic County, New Jersey.

Resolving Parental Disagreements

Although both parents want to choose the best option for their child, they might not agree on the same method. This argument does not necessarily have to involve the court. A neutral third party can help alleviate many conflicts through the use of mediation, an informal alternative dispute resolution method.

Planning For The Child's Future In Divorce

Divorcing spouses who have a child with special needs likely worry about how the breakup may affect his or her well-being. Divorce is often emotionally and financially straining for families, but autism, Asperger's syndrome, ADHD or another disability can add to this pressure.


Child Advocacy With School-Related Matters

In some cases, divorcing or divorced parents who have a child with special needs are not on amicable terms. This makes it difficult for either to participate in the child's educational development planning or other important services. I consider myself a child advocate and help parents coordinate school-related matters, such as attending IEP meetings, if it is difficult for them to do so on their own.

If you are a parent of a child with special needs, I can offer experienced guidance so your child can receive the services he or she needs.

Other Services

I dedicate my law practice to helping parents discover how to parent post-divorce. Whether you need help with the logistics of medical care or need guidance on how to balance time spent with your child, as your attorney, I can help you come up with a plan.

I can also help ensure that the child would be fully protected with trusts and guardianships if something were to happen to yourself or the other parent.
