Long Island Divorce and Family Law Practice Areas
As a Long Island law firm with over 13 years of experience serving local residents, our divorce and family law practice areas include, but are not limited to, the following:
Going through a divorce is not easy for most people emotionally, and the potential for serious legal and financial consequences only make it more difficult. KLG Law has the experience to empathize with your situation, while maintaining the necessary objectivity to provide you with sound legal advice and fight for your best interest.
From reaching settlements to enforcing court orders, child support law is complex. Regardless of which side of the case you’re on, KLG Law will serve as a dedicated advocate, fighting to obtain a fair child support arrangement that works for you.
Child custody arrangements that are not handled properly can have devastating effects on a family—particularly the children. KLG Law will fight to prove to the court that it is in your children’s best interest to remain in your custody. If you’re a noncustodial parent, KLG will fight for your parental rights and to maximize parenting time.
While starting or growing your family is an exciting, important time, complex legal processes can make it incredibly overwhelming. KLG Law helps you navigate the court system and ensure legal requirements are fulfilled so you can complete the adoption process smoothly.
Equitable distribution refers to the division of marital property in a way the court deems fair, not necessarily equal, for both parties during a divorce. KLG Law helps you retain the marital property to which you’re entitled in order to make sure you receive an equitable share.
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can not only meet the financial needs of each individual in a marriage, but actually strengthen and preserve the relationship by providing much-needed peace of mind. KLG Law has extensive experience drafting, defending and challenging nuptial agreements.
Separation agreements detail the rights and responsibilities between two spouses who wish to live separately and apart, but not necessarily divorce. A separation agreement allows a couple to work out their problems without divorce deadlines looming over their heads.
Spousal maintenance refers to payments made from one spouse to another during or after a divorce with the goal of enabling the receiving spouse to maintain financial independence. Whether you’re seeking spousal maintenance or being asked to pay it, KLG Law works to make sure payments are determined fairly.
In addition to being a Long Island family lawyer, KLG Law has successfully handled numerous criminal defense cases ranging from DWIs to domestic violence and economic/white collar crimes.
While New York State juvenile courts typically place emphasis on rehabilitation, juvenile offenders often receive serious consequences. KLG Law works to make sure your child receives fair treatment through this process.
