Divorce and Family Law

     Getting a divorce can be somber, and in some circumstances, liberating, but it is almost never easy. In fact, any reasonable divorce lawyer will tell you that ending a marriage will likely be one of the most difficult and stressful experiences of your life. The truth is people are often not fully prepared to handle the emotional, financial, and legal aspects of ending their marriage. When the reality of these difficulties hit them, many people become overwhelmed and feel like things are starting to spin out of control. At the Traub Law Office, our job is stop things from spinning out of control and help guide you and your family to safety.

Contested Divorce

     When the parties cannot reach an agreement about certain decisions that need to be made upon the dissolution of the marriage, this is what is known as a “contested divorce.”

To be sure, a contested divorce is always complicated – particularly when the points of contention involve property distribution and child custody. When heated disagreements about these issues arise, it can become extremely stressful, but that is why it is so important to hire a divorce lawyer who is capable of providing you with highly skilled and proactive representation. Indeed, receiving helpful and specific legal advice for your individualized needs is essential in obtaining the best possible outcome in your case.

 

 

Focused on Fair Resolution – But Prepared to Litigate

     As an experienced divorce lawyer, I always seek to help my clients avoid the financial and emotional costs of litigation through mediation. However, avoiding litigation is not always possible. When the parties cannot or will not agree on issues, my job as your attorney is to aggressively fight for your rights and interests.

 

     At the Traub Law Office, you will find a divorce lawyer who will compassionately and attentively take your circumstances into consideration and uncover the nuanced arguments which will be most beneficial to your interests and the ultimate outcome. At the end of the day, the primary focus is to make sure that you get the most out of your divorce so that your personal and professional interests are protected once the divorced has been finalized.

 

Modification of Family/Divorce Agreement

     During the pendency of divorce proceedings, couples often disagree on matters such as child custody or property division, and reaching an amicable resolution on these issues is not always so straightforward. This is particularly true when considering that a divorce can have consequences on each party’s life for many years after the divorce has been finalized. That being said, if your divorce has been finalized, but the terms are not to your liking, we can assist you with obtaining a divorce modification, but these modifications do not apply to every aspect of the divorce, nor are they always easy to obtain. But this is precisely why hiring a knowledgeable divorce lawyer from the outset is the best first step.
