Quality Representation: Our Practice Areas
At the firm, we are well versed in every area of family law. If you intend to get married in the near future, you and our future spouse may want to speak with our attorneys at Wisselman & Associates about prenuptial agreements. In short, a prenuptial agreement is a contract between yourself and your future spouse that determines how your financial assets and other property will be divided if you get a divorce. You may be hesitant to discuss an agreement with your future spouse because you are afraid it will create a sense of distrust and pessimism in your relationship. This feeling is normal, but misinformed.
Every year, thousands of divorces are filed in Suffolk County. Unmarried couples in Greenlawn cannot turn a blind eye to these statistics. You probably feel like divorce is improbable - if not impossible. However, preparing you and your spouse for potential hardships in the future may be wise. A prenuptial agreement does not necessitate divorce. Additionally, talking about these issues with our spouse before you are married can help create a sense transparency, authenticity, honesty, and openness in your relationship. To see what a Greenlawn family law attorney from our firm can do for you, call our office today.
In the event that you believe a divorce is necessary, our attorneys are more than ready to work by your side and guide you through tedious legal proceedings ahead of you and your family. If you are nervous about dragging your personal life into the courtroom, call our office today and ask about divorce mediation. Our lawyers are familiar with the ins and outs of mediation and can help you decide if it is right for you and your family. If you and your spouse are willing to work together to terminate your marriage, mediation may be an effective way to save time and money while keeping your private lives away from the publicity and openness of the courtroom.
If you are facing serious marital problems but can't decide if you want a divorce, you may want to consider a legal separation. Legal separation is advantageous for a variety of reasons. It allows you and your spouse time away from each other to decide whether or not you really want to terminate your marriage. If you know that you want a divorce but are afraid of losing your health benefits during the termination process, legal separation allows you and your spouse to lead separate, independent lives while officially staying married so you can maintain your current medical coverage.
