Divorce falls into the area of Matrimonial law, which is a complicated and unique practice of law. Divorces requires a tough and experienced attorney who is skilled in this area of practice and is prepared to handle every situation. No divorce is the same, and each divorce requires a case-by-case approach be taken by an attorney that is knowledgeable and skilled in the area of practice. Our expert attorneys combine their skill and experience to craft an individualized legal plan tailor made for your case, designed to protect your assets and your rights.
The main issues in a divorce case are distribution of assets, child custody or visitation, and/or financial support. Some divorces are relatively amicable and cordial, where the couple agrees on most major decisions, or easier because there are less assets to be divided. Other times, former spouses contest each other on many issues, or there are many complicated assets to be divided, making the divorce lengthier and more difficult. Most cases fall somewhere between these two extremes, with only certain issues the parties can agree on and the remaining issues having to be decided by a judge.
Divorce can be an emotional and daunting process, and you should not have to face it alone. You need an attorney who is passionate about your case, compassionate about your situation, and skilled in the specific area of law. During a divorce, your rights are on the line. You need a passionate and experienced attorney to fight for you to get what you deserve.

Legal relationship agreements are binding contracts entered into voluntarily by the parties in a personal relationship, which dictate their rights and obligations. The most common types of relationship agreements are prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, and reconciliation agreements.
Agreements in anticipation of marriage is referred to as a prenuptial agreement, or a “prenup.” Prenups have become very common and are a great way for couples to set forth rights and responsibilities before entering into marriage. A prenup can protect your financial rights, assets, privacy and more in case of any future unforeseen dissolution of the marriage.
A postnuptial agreement, or a “postnup,” is an agreement a couple enters into after the marriage has already begun. These types of agreements are beneficial when one or both of the parties have a change in situation during marriage, such as one spouse decides to stop working, or where one spouse suddenly receives a substantial increase in salary. These agreements can protect your finances or assets, and your rights. Our attorneys can ensure these agreements are fair and that you receive what you deserve.
A reconciliation agreement is an agreement that can be beneficial when a couple has previously separated, but then decides to reconcile the relationship. These agreements can provide protection for both spouses and help ensure a peaceful transition into their new future together.
If you and your loved one have recently experienced a change in circumstance or are anticipating a change in your relationship status, a relationship agreement may be advantageous for you. Our experienced attorneys will create a tailor-made agreement to protect you and your rights, while providing peace of mind during your transition into a new stage of your relationship.
