Family Law Counsel Respecting Cultural Differences
If either party in a divorce or child custody dispute is from another country or part of a minority ethnic group in the United States, cultural differences may come into focus. Whether your or your spouse’s native culture is rooted in New Jersey, India, Pakistan, Mexico, Portugal, China or elsewhere, rest assured that respect for your cultural values is a fundamental part of our family law practice.
At Tournour Law, we offer thoughtful, open-minded legal counsel for individuals and couples of all backgrounds in family law matters such as divorce. This means we listen carefully, we explain legal processes in plain language and we will include you as a full partner in the design of the legal steps recommended for you and your family.
Accommodating Cultural Sensitivities In Our Family Law Practice
With 30 years of legal experience, attorney Frank E. Tournour has guided clients from many countries and with many cultural backgrounds through New Jersey’s family law court systems. The human element is an essential part of family law. We honor each client’s unique cultural considerations with regard to:
- Religious beliefs and taboos
- Traditional roles of fathers and mothers
- The impact of family law matters on relationships with elders, such as grandparents
- Sensitive, personal topics that may come to light in divorce litigation and ways of keeping family matters private (such as through divorce mediation)
In general, our attorney and our legal staff are sensitive to the hurdles that some international and multicultural clients face when pursuing a fair deal in the American legal system. We can help explain the processes necessary to protect your property rights and parental rights. We will actively work as necessary to ensure that you are not discriminated against or taken advantage of by anyone who may have an influence on the outcome of your case.
