Creative Solutions And Workable Plans For All Family Legal Matters
Our family law practice encompasses a full range of services, including:
Divorce proceedings: We have a successful history of representing clients with significant and complex assets and incomes in divorce cases, including individuals and spouses whether physicians, corporate executives, financial sector employees and other professionals. We provide strong advocacy at every step of the divorce process to help ensure a fair settlement.
Property division: The law in Connecticut states that marital assets are to be distributed equitably. It is important to bear in mind that “equitable” is not the same as “equal.” Property division issues can become increasingly complex when significant assets are involved such as businesses, trusts and stock options, inheritances, and premarital assets. We understand how to properly value assets and will work hard to find a workable resolution that keeps your interests in mind.
Child support issues: Whether you are requesting support or being asked to make support payments, we can help you effectively make your case. We also handle modification requests and enforcement actions related to child support.
Premarital agreements: Premarital, or prenuptial, agreements are effective tools for helping to ensure that your valuable assets whether premarital, inherited or family business interests, remain protected should your marriage ever end. We provide comprehensive drafting and review services of prenuptial agreements and can help you identify what you wish to accomplish by entering into this type of agreement.
Family law appeals: We are one of the few firms in the state that handles family law appeals. We have developed a reputation for meticulous preparation, clear courtroom presentations and pointed arguments designed to address unjust errors in an initial family law decision.
Custody: In addition to the above practice areas, we represent parents and caregivers in matters involving child custody and visitation, as well as provide legal counsel for a wide range of other types of family law matters.
