Experienced New York Family Law Attorney Providing Counsel to Clients throughout Rensselaer County

Making the decision to file for divorce in Rensselaer County is never an easy one. Whether you have been married for a short time with no children from the marriage or have been married for decades and have grown children, getting divorced will probably be one of the most emotionally difficult periods in your life. But divorce is only one aspect of family law. Perhaps you have questions about child custody and child support? Many Rensselaer parents come to us when they have concerns about relocation and the effect it will have on child custody agreements. Or maybe you have concerns about issues of grandparent visitation? In what might seem like a separate realm altogether, you might be thinking about marriage, and you may want help drafting a prenuptial agreement.

Family law is a broad and varied field of law that encompasses many different issues that families face—from the moment of getting married or having children to questions about the dissolution of marriage and child support payments. At The Colwell Law Group, LLC, we have spent years assisting families throughout Rensselaer County with many different types of family law matters.
