A divorce can be a totally, all encompassing, life changing experience and our attorneys will be there to support you every step of the way. Dividing a life built together can be emotionally and financially exhausting. Assets may need to be divided and sold or appraised and divided. One side may need to pay the other side’s legal fees or the “monied spouse” may need to pay temporary (pendete lite) support. Equitable distribution, grounds for divorce, child custody, visitation, child support, spousal maintenance, equalizing retirement accounts, the disposition of the marital residence are issues that may need to be negotiated or litigated during a divorce.

Child Abuse and Neglect

When a parent or a guardian is accused of abuse or neglect of children, the local child protective services agent may go to Family Court and seek an order of protection or some order that the Court feels is appropriate to protect the children. This can be a scary time and you may need an aggressive lawyer who is willing to fight the government and protect your rights. Our lawyers are experienced in handling these Article 10 abuse and neglect proceedings and will fight to reunite your family.
