Few areas of the law get more personal than family law and divorce. Emotions run high, and decisions about sensitive issues have the potential to affect family members for the rest of their lives. For that reason, we take a compassionate approach to helping you achieve your desired goals.
While our Spector Foerst & Associates attorneys will fight for our clients as necessary, we make every effort to keep the process amicable – especially when children are involved. Once issues are resolved, Mom and Dad must be able to come together to co-parent their children – and that’s difficult to do in the wake of a lengthy, contentious, adversarial divorce proceeding.
Even in divorce without children, an amicable settlement is our goal, to enable the parties to put this angst behind them as quickly and completely as possible and move on with their lives. The process might involve negotiation and mediation – or, if necessary, litigation – but our first step always is to seek a creative solution for your situation.
Spector Foerst & Associates family law specialists will guide you through the equitable distribution of marital property (division of assets and debts), helping you to understand applicable state law that governs the process. With our dual specialty in real estate law, Spector Foerst & Associates attorneys can offer expert advice and recommendations about disposition of the marital residence, a summer home, and investment property, including valuations as needed.
We will help you work out spousal support (alimony) and child support, again guided by state law as it applies to your unique circumstances. Child custody arrangements, parenting time – even grandparenting time – are all sensitive issues that our family law attorneys can help you through to devise an agreeable arrangement that works for your family.
Dismantling a marital and family relationship, with all of the emotional complexities of established family life and its financial underpinnings, is no simple task. Let an expert Spector Foerst & Associates family law attorney find creative ways to help you navigate the process and achieve your goals.
