When divorcing couples seek the dissolution of marriage through the legal system, it is not uncommon for serious disagreements to complicate the entire process. Family law matters are overwhelming and most people cannot overcome their feelings to see the cost of court battles on the family, financially and emotionally. Fortunately, some are able to work together to come to an amicable conclusion for their matter. When families use mediation, the outcome is usually cordial and almost always more cost-effective than a court case.

Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative law is a growing movement in divorce options. People are learning about the benefits of avoiding litigation and turning to Collaborative Divorce as an alternative. Collaborative Divorce is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution where a couple works together to come to an agreement on the marital issues left unresolved. Once complete, they will be left with a Separation Agreement that can be used to file for divorce. Especially when a family is at stake, cooperation has never been more important.

Reviews From Our Clients

Paris and his team always had my back. He was always 2 steps ahead of my ex wife's attorney. He was always there to guide me, and called me out when I made mistakes. Paris always tells it like it is. No beating around the bush. I would absolutely recommend him and I would absolutely use him again. He got the best possible outcome for my boys and I.- Gene

I began my divorce proceedings with a lawyer who only concerned himself with separating the client from his or her money and drag out the divorce to that end. I fired that lawyer and hired Paris P. Eliades, Esq., who is the exact opposite of the first lawyer. Mr. Eliades strives to complete divorce proceedings as efficiently as possible, always with an eye to saving his client paying unnecessary monies…- Anonymous

I don’t know where to begin as far as explaining how glad I am that I chose Paris to represent me in a stressful, complicated divorce. In a field that seems ripe with lawyers trying to drag things out in an effort to heighten their fees, Paris stands out as one of the huge exceptions. When a friend recommended that I use Paris for my divorce, she told me that…- Charlene

I worked with Paris and his firm for my divorce. My ex was extremely litigious and Paris did a great job protecting me and bringing about the most positive and expeditious conclusion possible.- Anonymous

After learning of my husband’s Adultery in 2015, I went to see Paris Eliades to discuss a divorce. As this was a difficult time for me, Paris expressed his sympathy and was very patient with me, listening to my situation and hardships. Even though I was disoriented and emotional throughout the process, it was a relief knowing Mr. Eliades, a well-known attorney, was representing me during these difficult times. As…- Vera

I hired Mr. Eliades as my Divorce Trial Attorney that concluded with a Final Judgment of Divorce ruling. We spent a great deal of time together throughout a very lengthy process (4 years) that included witness testimony, employability experts, child custody experts and countless motions. Throughout the process Mr. Eliades handled the court and my concerns as one would expect from an experienced attorney. A Divorce Trial should be avoided…- Patrick

I came to see Mr. Eliades in August of 2012. He sat with me and gave me an honest game plan for my divorce. He was honest enough to tell me the truth and what he can and can’t do. He quoted me a price and told me to think about my divorce and what he said. I then decided to go with an attorney in Hudson County. The attorney…- Sam

Mr. Eliades exemplifies the term “Counselor at Law”. Atypical for his field, Mr. Eliades understands how to best represent his client’s interests while managing expectations. He is a fierce defender of his clients, while always taking the higher ground and without succumbing to the drama prevalent in so many matrimonial suits. His methodology of practice had earned him the respect and trust of each court that he appears before and…- Donna
