Handling a broad range of family issues

Getting divorced in Westchester County

We understand that, even in the best circumstances, divorces are emotionally taxing. Whether you are seeking a separation, uncontested divorce, no-fault divorce or contested divorce, our office seeks a resolution that accomplishes your goals.

We also handle all the issues that go along with a separation or divorce, including:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Child visitation
  • Division of property
  • Fathers’ rights
  • Mothers’ rights
  • Same-sex divorce
  • Business asset division
  • Adultery
  • Grandparents’ visitation
  • Unique issues for families with special-needs children

Collecting or changing child support

At some point after a divorce or separation, many parents find they need help collecting or changing child support. We take care of filing enforcement actions and requests to modify child support. Our experience in this area means we know how to request income withholding orders, bank levies and violation citations. If you need to change child support, we explain the factors supporting a modification, such as changes in income or in the children’s needs.

Collaborative law and mediation options

We are experienced in collaborative law and mediation. Whereas both methods allow the parties to decide the outcome of a case themselves, they in that mediation is conducted by one mediator and may occur in conjunction with an existing court case while a collaborative divorce, where both parties are represented by his or her own collaborative attorney, is entirely outside the court process. We explain your alternative dispute resolution options and help you decide which method is best for you.
