Resolving the Issues in Divorce and Related Matters

Our Matrimonial and Family Law Department at Wachtel Missry is in tune with the sensitivities of our clients. We are well aware that divorce, property settlement and child custody can be subject to considerable dispute.

We work for settlement, while preparing for litigation.

While we strive to work toward the negotiation of a settlement whenever possible, we also recognize that there are circumstances that require litigation. We have successfully negotiated and litigated matters involving equitable distribution, valuation of complex businesses, spousal maintenance (alimony), child support, child custody and visitation.

Dividing marital assets is especially difficult and challenging when a closely held business is involved. Our business knowledge is helpful in determining how to divide the assets without damaging the business. Wachtel Missry also advises clients about the tax implications of various property division arrangements.

When child custody or parenting time is in dispute, we work for a mutually negotiated decision that is in the best interests of the child. We are always prepared to litigate if a reasonable decision cannot be reached.

We also represent clients in the negotiation and preparation of prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements and separation agreements.

In divorce actions, we explain your options and protect your rights.

If you are facing separation or divorce, we welcome your call to discuss the situation and help you plan for your future.
