The primary focus of our practice involves divorce cases – the termination of a marriage. The termination of a marriage must ultimately be ordered by a court, regardless of how the case was resolved, i.e. whether by trial or by negotiated settlement.
In our practice, these dissolution of marriage cases often involve complex or substantial assets, business interests or professional practices, complex executive compensation, “high net worth” matters, trusts or complex pre-existing estate plans, as well as other unique issues arising in the family law context. In such cases, it is necessary for the individual to have access to attorneys familiar with and accustomed to dealing with such issues – they don’t arise in every divorce case – in order to know, with precision, what can be done.
Many divorce cases involve a multiplicity of additional issues, such as child custody, child support, spousal support, or special needs or circumstances of a child or a party. Such a divorce case may also involve less complexity; we are also equipped to deal with less complex divorce cases, efficiently and effectively.
Every family law case is unique, just as every family and person within the family is unique, and every family law case requires an analysis tailored to the specific facts of that case. Something that seems to have worked for someone you know in another divorce case may have little relevance or utility in your case, and may not even be an option.
For all of these reasons and more, you may wish to meet with a family law attorney for a consultation to discuss your particular problem or issue. Please call us and we will be happy to be of assistance to you.
