Cases We Handle
Family law involves more than divorce. In fact, our attorneys are well versed in a wide variety of legal fields. If you are unmarried but intend to enter a marriage in the future, you may want to consider establishing a prenuptial agreement with your future spouse. Many couples avoid talking about prenuptial agreements because they are afraid of divorce. In the United States, many people decide to terminate their marriages; unmarried couples and individuals cannot pretend like divorce isn't a reality.
Prenuptial agreements are simply a way to prepare for one future out of many possibilities; they do not necessitate divorce. An attorney from our firm can help you understand the benefits of writing a prenuptial agreement so that you and your future spouse can establish a sense of clarity, transparency, and honesty with each other about the future. To learn more, contact a Syosset family law lawyer from our firm today.
Working with an Experienced Lawyer in Syosset
If you are afraid of dragging your personal life through the courtroom, speak with us about mediation. When you decide that divorce is the best option for your future and the future of your family, you may become intimidated by the thought of terminating your marriage in front of a judge. This is normal. Divorce mediation allows you to end your marriage outside of the courtroom and away from the publicity of a divorce case. At Wisselman & Associates, our lawyers are well versed in divorce mediation and are ready to guide you through every step of the process.
Sometimes, couples facing serious marital problems aren't sure if they really want to file for a divorce. If this is you, you may want to consider a legal separation instead. Legal separation allows you and your spouse the freedom to live separate lives while legally maintaining your marriage and gives you and your spouse time to determine whether or not you truly want to file for divorce. Additionally, some couples want to divorce but are bound by religious obligation to stay together. If you and your spouse want to live separately but officially maintain your marriage, we can help you understand you legal rights so you can make an educated decision about your future and the future of your family.
Complex Divorce Litigation
Every divorce is different. Some cases are significantly more complicated than others. If you are seeking a divorce in a same-sex marriage, our firm is ready to help you understand your legal circumstances so that all of your legal matters are taken care of. Since the Marriage Equality Act, New York recognizes marriages between members of the same sex. Just like different-sex couples, same-sex marriages can end in complex divorces.
Because the United States government does not acknowledge same-sex marriage - even though the state of New York does - same-sex divorce cases may be more complicated than other divorce procedures. At our firm, our attorneys are ready to help you understand the same-sex marriage and divorce process and give your case the special attention and care that it requires. Call our office today! The sooner we hear from you the faster we can help.
Other Practice Areas
Although our firm is focused on helping clients settle their family legal matters, we are knowledgeable in a variety of other legal fields, too. If you need help with real estate litigation or business law, call the firm today. Additionally, we are experienced in estate planning. You may assume that estate planning is for the wealthy and the elderly. In reality, estate planning is for everyone.
If you own a car, house, bank account, financial assets, or personal belongings, you should carefully consider who will inherit your estate when you die. At Wisselman & Associates, we can help you understand your planning options to help you make informed decisions about the future of your property and the financial security of your love ones.
