- Divorce. The critical decisions you make during the divorce process can have lasting consequences in all aspects of your life. As such, we take the time to learn everything about you, including your family relationships, responsibilities, employment, and finances. We think long term about securing your financial health, often thinking outside the box to put you in the most advantageous position possible, both today and tomorrow.
- High-asset divorce. We provide discretion and thoroughness in cases involving complex financial holdings, multiple real estate properties, closely held businesses, professional practices, investments, retirement accounts, compensation packages, and other assets. These cases may require legal analysis from financial experts and other professional resources. We can perform an exhaustive review of all property and assets to protect your legal rights and best interests throughout the divorce process.
- Alimony. Spousal support is generally designed to provide financial resources for a spouse during or after the divorce process. It may be granted on a temporary or permanent basis or as rehabilitative short-term aid to help a lower-earning party become self-supporting. The courts will look at many factors in determining alimony payments. We advise parties seeking alimony and those contesting payments on their rights and obligations.
- Child support. All parents, whether married or not, are obligated to financially support their children. The Connecticut Child Support and Arrearage Guidelines determines child support payments. Our team can help create plans that fairly divide support obligations. We also represent clients seeking enforcement and modifications.
- Custody and visitation. The welfare of your children is always of paramount importance. Our team can advise and guide you through the negotiation of a parenting plan that will protect your parental rights and serve the best interests of your children.
- Complex custody cases. Disputes between parents regarding custody can be based on many underlying issues. These emotional cases require the representation of an experienced lawyer. Our team has successfully handled a substantial number of highly contentious custody battles.
- Complex property division. When complex property holdings are involved, the division of marital property can become combative. Our attorneys can work tirelessly to help you achieve a fair property settlement that fully identifies, values, and divides these assets.
- Relocation. The consequences of relocation for a child and the opposing parent can be profound. The court will look at what is in the child’s best interest to determine if relocation is appropriate. These complex cases call for compelling evidence to prove or disprove that relocation best serves the child.
