If you are going through a divorce in Schenectady County, one of the things that can provide the greatest sources of comfort is knowing that you have a competent lawyer on your side who is not only experienced, but who cares about protecting your best interests. At The Colwell Law Group, LLC, we understand what you are experiencing in terms of frustration and confusion about the future, and our Schenectady County divorce lawyers can provide you with the support you are looking for.
We Know How to Resolve Tough Issues in a Divorce
There are a number of tough questions that are raised in a divorce – our attorneys can help you to determine the answers, and fight for what you want. We have experience handling various aspects of divorce law, including:
- Child support;
- Child custody;
- Alimony/spousal support;
- Property division;
- Division of retirement accounts; and
- Temporary relief.
We can also analyze an existing prenuptial agreement and help you to understand how it will affect your divorce settlement. Further, we also have experience seeking modifications of divorce orders on clients’ behalf.
The Benefits of Working with a Divorce Lawyer
When you work with a divorce lawyer, you are acting in your best interests. When you do not have a lawyer, you may be unsure of how to approach the family law system, how to negotiate for a settlement in your favor, and what happens at a divorce hearing. When you contact our law firm, we will:
- Assess all finances involved in your case;
- Manage the filing of all divorce-related paperwork;
- Represent you in conversations and negotiations/mediations with your spouse;
- Help you to understand the benefits of reaching an out-of-court agreement; and
- Represent you in a divorce hearing or trial if necessary.
While it is our goal to settle cases out of court when possible and when doing so is in our clients’ best interests, we also understand that sometimes, leaving decisions up to a judge is the only way to finalize a divorce. We want to assure you that we have divorce in-courtroom experience, and are prepared to take your case as far as it needs to go to be resolved.
Our Attorneys Are Highly Skilled
Our attorneys are highly skilled and have decades’ worth of combined experience. We have more than just talent alone, though; our team is compassionate, caring, and patient. We also know how stressful and emotional a divorce can be, and are sensitive to what you are going through, can empathize with your situation, and will always protect your confidentiality. We also know that in many divorce cases, children may be involved, making the case that much more delicate. We prioritize diplomacy, collaboration, and strategy in each case we take on.
