Nestled along the eastern border of Bergen County, New Jersey, and bordered by both the state of New York and the Hudson River, lies the modest borough of Tenafly. The community has the distinction of being the first borough formed in the county during the borough craze of the late nineteenth century. Its name is Dutch in origin, and may relate to its meadow location. Its 4.6 square miles are home to a growing population of 14,635. The nearest town of over 50,000 is Yonkers of Hello, Dolly! fame, located just over 5 miles due east of Tenafly. Other neighboring communities include Cresskill, Bergenfield, Englewood, Dumont, Demarest, Englewood Cliffs, Alpine and Haworth. Richly diverse, over 31% of the community's residents have immigrated to the U.S., mostly from Asia and Europe. Native born citizens trace their lineage to Irish, Russian, Italian, German, Polish and English roots. A whopping 66% of Tenafly residents are now wed, and only 5.5% are currently divorced.
Serving Tenafly and all of Bergen County in matters of divorce or other family legal issues are the Offices of Peter Van Aulen. Mr. Van Aulen benefits from the experience garnered from both his twenty-two years and counting of family legal practice, and his thirteen years as an adjunct professor. Peter Van Aulen was certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a matrimonial attorney. This is not an easily earned distinction; extensive exams test each applicant's acumen and practical experience, and he or she must also pass peer and judicial reviews. Mr. Van Aulen handles a broad spectrum of legal issues under the umbrella of family law, from college tuition disputes to the international child abduction cases. He is an attorney who cares about his clients' mental and emotional well being as well as their legal rights, taking the time to listen to your story before crafting an aggressive strategy to defend your equity under the law. If you're looking for impartial assistance rather than pursuing a court case, Mr. Van Aulen is also a trained mediator. Rather than representing a specific client, in these instances he meets with both parties to discuss and mediate an amicable and legally binding conclusion.
