Divorce and Family Law Matters in Long Island
Are you looking for a family law attorney to handle a divorce,
separation, or other family law issue in Long Island? It is unfortunate but not uncommon that many couples in today's world find their lives turned upside down by divorce and disputes related to divorce, such as
property division, or
alimony. If you are facing these very difficult issues, you need an attorney who has the legal experience, knowledge, and skills to safely guide you through the necessary legal processes as smoothly and with as little stress as possible. That is the service a
Long Island divorce lawyer at the Rubenfeld Law Firm can provide to you as a client in your family law matter.
If you are presently feeling overwhelmed, anxious and concerned about the future, we want you to know that we are here to answer all of your questions and give you honest and forthright advice. We understand the stress and anxiety you are going through and we believe the best way to give you a sense of control over your situation is by arming you with information about your rights and responsibilities in the divorce process.
If you are merely contemplating divorce but are fearful or hesitant about filing because of child custody, asset division or because of what could happen to your family business, then we are here to help. Regardless of your unique set of circumstances, with the proper attention to detail and utilizing the legal system to your advantage, it can be possible to achieve your goals despite the challenges that you presently face. Over our years in practice we have handled all types of divorce cases, ranging from no asset divorces without children to high net worth contested divorces where children were also involved.
If you are a victim of spousal abuse or if your children are a victim of child abuse, our firm has extensive experience with domestic violence cases. We can help domestic violence victims pursue a protective order against their abuser, telling them to stop the abuse. Often times when a judge issues a protective order, it orders the spouse to stop the abuse and leave the victim/s alone. Orders of protection can also require that the abuser move out of the home and stay a certain distance away from his or her victims or else face legal consequences. Protective orders can be valuable tools when it comes to ensuring the victim's safety and they can have a significant impact on child custody and visitation orders in a divorce proceeding.
