Seaford Divorce Attorneys
Last year, more than 2,700 divorces were filed in Nassau County, New York. In the United States today, divorce is a real issue faced by many families every year. If you are looking to file a divorce in Seaford, contact Wisselman & Associates right away. We are one of the largest divorce firms in the area and are highly respected by our legal peers.
We understand the psychological, emotional, and financial stress of terminating a marriage - this is why you need an experienced and reliable attorney to help you understand your rights and give your case the personalized care and attention it merits. Filing for a divorce affects more people than you and your spouse - your child and the people you are close to may feel the impact of your decision for years to come. Once you decide that ending your marriage is the best option for your well-being and the future of your family, make sure that you have a top-notch attorney working for you.
Since our beginning in 1976, our firm has accumulated more than 150 years of combined legal experience fighting for the best interest of our clients in New York cases. Let us put our vast knowledge and understanding of divorce litigation to work for you. Even if you are facing a relatively peaceful separation, our lawyers can guide you through the divorce process with as little frustration as possible. In fact, out-of-court settlement negotiations with a mediating lawyer are often preferable to trial. Not sure if you need a lawyer? In order to serve you better, we are willing to schedule a free, personal consultation to help you understand your situation and give you the opportunity to make an informed decision about the future of your marriage.
We've Handled Thousands of Cases
At Wisselman & Associates, we have helped clients by handling tens of thousands of cases over the years. Few firms can match our level of success because our attorneys offer peerless legal services and utilize innovative techniques, strategies, and resources to effectively resolve cases. With this kind of experience behind us, we are more than qualified to help you. Our attorneys are experienced in every facet of family and divorce law - even child custody and prenuptial agreements. If you want to terminate your marriage but are intimidated by the openness and publicity of court proceedings, ask us about divorce mediation. Our attorneys are familiar with the ins and outs of mediation and want to help you understand your divorce options.
Not sure if you really want to file for divorce? Sometimes, couples need time apart from each other to decide whether or not divorce is the answer to their marital struggles. If this describes your current situation, you and your spouse should consider legal separation. Some couples who face significant marital problems want to live separate lives but are afraid of losing medical and health benefits during the divorce process. Unlike divorce, legal separation does not terminate your marriage; it gives you and your spouse time away from each other to decide what is truly best for your future and the future of your family.
Looking to end a same-sex marriage in Seaford?
Since the Marriage Equality Act, the state of New York recognizes same-sex marriages - the United States federal government does not. If you are looking to end your same-sex marriage, speak with our attorneys at Wisselman & Associates as soon as possible. Because of the difference between state and federal law, your divorce may be more complicated than terminating a heterosexual marriage. At our firm, we are ready to help you understand your legal situation and give your cases the special care and attention it needs. For more information, call our office today. We are ready to speak with you at any time.
