Helping You Navigate Family Law in Ulster County

Family law is a very broad topic area that encompasses many other specific legal matters. You can rest assured that we have experience in a wide range of legal matters, and are competent in our ability to represent you in your:

  • Divorce case. Divorce is one of the most common reasons that individuals and couples enter the family law system, and requires coming to an agreement about a variety of issues.
  • Property division case. If you and your spouse are separating, it is important that you understand New York’s property division laws and how to protect your best interests.
  • Alimony/spousal maintenance case. Spousal maintenance is common in divorce judgements. Let our lawyers work for you to ensure your spousal maintenance award is fair.
  • Child custody or support case. There are few issues more complicated than those of child support and custody. We know how much your child means to you – we will work hard for your and your child’s best interests.
  • Domestic violence case. If you are a victim of domestic violence, you need to find a safe place now. Our lawyers can help you to acquire a domestic violence order of protection, and start the legal paperwork for terminating your marriage.

We can also represent you in the creation of a pre- or postnuptial agreement, answer questions you have about modification of divorce orders, and help you to enforce a support order.
