Cohen, our divorce attorney helps you deal with the major changes that are upcoming in your life, leveraging our experience to keep you completely informed of your options at all times. We give you a feeling of control over the entire process, whether you can come to amicable agreements with your spouse through mediation or you need to engage in court action to attain the property, child custody, child support and alimony rights you deserve. Call on our team to keep you on the right path as you begin your new life.

You Need A Strong Lawyer To Help You Through Divorce

During the dissolution of your marriage, you need to consider a number of issues that may affect your lifestyle in the years to come. Ms. Cohen will help you understand all of these issues, which include the following:

  • Securing custody of your children. We help you understand child custody and visitation rights laws and ensure that your children are not caught in the middle of your divorce.
  • Receiving sufficient child support and maintenance (formerly called alimony). Providing for your children and yourself may come down to securing adequate support payments from your ex-spouse. Our team works hard to reach a fair agreement.
  • Equitably dividing assets. From homes and cars to retirement funds and real estate, we seek to safeguard what you've earned through the process of dividing marital property.
  • Post-divorce matters. We can assist with the modification or enforcement of the original divorce decree as it relates to alimony, child custody, child support and more.

Divorce mediation may be the most effective method to reach your goals, while minimizing the stress and anxiety that divorce often brings. Taking your case to court is expensive and time consuming, and should be avoided whenever possible. We first seek to reach a fair settlement with your spouse, allowing you to resolve all issues quickly. If court action is inevitable, however, we fight hard for you and make sure you get what you need.
