Matrimonial & Family Law

Whether you’re involved in or just thinking about divorce, you’re having custody or child support issues, or even if you’re thinking of marriage and wish to make sure that your assets remain yours, you need a qualified, experienced legal expert who can make the process easier and less stressful.

If you or someone your close with is having marital or family problems, you need to be aware of your rights and possible remedies. While no one wants to go to court, sometimes you have no choice. While divorce can be difficult, it’s our job to help you get through it. While achieving a settlement, is always beneficial to all sides involved. If circumstances dictate, we will fight for you aggressively and successfully. Making sure that your rights are protected is our main goal at the Law Office of Joseph Soffer.

Divorce LawFor those that are in need of child and spousal support, we will make sure that you receive all that you are entitled to under the law. Making sure that you have a roof over your head and that the bills are paid while holding down a job can be difficult when child and spousal support isn't paid. Likewise, when abusive or dangerous situations threaten your family’s safety, legal action will be initiated immediately in order to help you gain custody and suspend visitation privileges. We put the interests of children first and use the full force of the law to place them with loving, caring parents or relatives.

For those that may be required to pay child and spousal support, we will make sure that your payments benefit the intended party and no one else. We will also help to insure that you have as much visitation as you are entitled to and are able to spend as much time as possible with your children without interference or obstruction.

Regardless of the grounds for divorce, a separation will impact each member of your family. Understanding what your financial responsibilities will be, how custody issues will be determined, and how debt and property may be divided requires the advice and guidance of an experienced divorce attorney.

We have helped clients through trying times in both Family Court and Supreme Court in all five boroughs of New York City as well as Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester and Rockland Counties. Your first consultation is free and we even have attorneys available to meet with you after work and on weekends. Anything discussed will be held in the strictest confidence.

Throughout your case, we will work closely with you, representing you in every phase of the matter advising you as to your rights and legal options.

Preparation for Your First Consultation

In preparation for your consultation and what may follow you should do your best to collect any records or documentation relevant to your case. Any financial information pertaining to a change in your or your spouse's financial situation, job status, or living conditions is important to provide to the court. It is imperative that both sides provide thorough and accurate financial information. It is essential to have all information such as tax returns, credit card bills, income statements, investments, bank records, retirement plans (401k plans, pensions, and stock portfolios), boats, sailboats or recreational possessions, professional licenses, vacation properties, hidden assets, and other information. Failure to provide thorough information may result in the court favoring your spouse's documentation - which supports his or her position and not yours.
