Divorce and Family Law

The Law Offices of Michael J. Alber, Esq
a

Divorce and Family Law

When it comes to Divorce/Family Law, the Law Offices of Michael J. Alber will provide you with representation that is second to none.  We handle everything from divorce, separation agreements, child custody and support, equitable distribution, maintenance/alimony, and orders of protection.

  • Separation Agreements: Some couples prefer to separate rather than obtain a divorce. A separation agreement is a legal process which is filed for by spouses at the county clerk’s office, and it in essence declares that the spouses are legally separated. It does not however put an end to the marriage, but does protect the rights and responsibilities of each spouse and protects those rights of each spouse while they are living separately.
  • Divorce: Our experience and prior cases in the area of divorce have led us to receive favorable outcomes for our clients. Our goal for our clients is to make this transition in your life as smooth and as stress-free as we can make it for you.
  • Equitable Distribution: In a divorce proceeding, not all the property held by the couple is equally divided between the two spouses. The process is actually significantly more complex. The state of New York is by law, an equitable distribution state. Equitable Distribution deals with the division of property. This is an very important time to have an experienced attorney on your side.
  • Maintenance/Alimony:  Maintenance is also known as alimony or spousal support. Maintenance is money paid by one spouse to the other for a certain period of time after a legal separation or divorce, and can also be by way of interim relief pending final judgment. It is available for numerous types of relief including to help maintain the same standard of living the spouse had enjoyed during his or her marriage until that spouse is able to become financially independent.
    • Child Custody: The outcome of a custody dispute can have a significant impact on the parents, the child, and the child’s future. we provide representation in custody cases, and we understand how important it is for parents to have the ability to maintain a strong bond with their children. If the opposition is being unreasonable and not willing to negotiate fair visitation rights of the children, we will fight aggressively on your behalf to protect the best interests of your child.
    • Child Support: We firmly believe that having open communication with your ex-spouse’s attorney can and will achieve the optimum resolution to your legal issue. However, when the other attorney and/or your ex-spouse is unwilling to reach a reasonable conclusion, we are always ready to take aggressive action on our client’s behalf.
    • Order of Protection: If you have been the victim of domestic violence. You should not have to suffer from this abuse and injury any longer. We will fight and do whatever is needed to help protect you. By taking the legal recourse offered by New York courts, you can finally experience relief.

    Sometimes you may find yourself in difficult situations and not be able to defuse the situation without going to court. Our lawyers will also represent you in various civil litigation cases and provide you the help you need in the best way possible.
