Family & Matrimonial Law
There are few traumatic experiences which compare with a divorce and the attendant issues related to a marital breakup which requires division of property and the determination of custody and visitation as well as other issues related to children. This area of the law requires a unique expertise which encompasses a deep understanding of the emotional issues and values involved with a special emphasis on individualized service.
Our Divorce attorneys become involved in the most sensitive issues in our clients' lives and have access to or possess the experience in other legal disciplines which relate to business and estate issues which often arise in divorce and family law matters.
Our experience includes the handling of complex Litigated and Non-Litigated Matrimonial Matters involving the Forensic Valuations of assets, including but not limited to: Closely Held Businesses; Professional Practices; Professional Licenses and Degrees; Pensions and other Retirement Benefits; Appraisals of Real Estate, and other marital assets; as well as issues of Child Support; Maintenance; Equitable Distribution; Custody and Visitation; Relocation of Children and Custodial Parent; Exclusive Use and Occupancy of the Marital Residence; Interstate Custody and Visitation Disputes; and Interstate Child and Spousal Support Disputes related to Divorce actions and, where applicable, Family Court Proceedings in New York County and the New York Metropolitan area.
Because often a marital dispute may be settled by agreement, our attorneys prepare and negotiate Separation Agreements and Stipulations of Settlement, as well as all other documents related to contested and uncontested divorce matters. Our services also include the preparation and negotiation of Prenuptial and Postnuptial instruments and the Mediation of divorce disputes.
