"We Feel Safe, Protected, and Fought For" 5-Star Reviews for Our Glenville, New York Lawyers
We are working them on an adoption case and we have been met with love, grace patience etc. The process has been smooth sailing fast and efficient. We feel like old friends really.
It's extremely processional but also casual where it needs to be.
We feel safe protected and fought for. It does not feel like we are just a number and they are out to get our money.
Ms. DeCoursey is a fair, honest, and ethical attorney. Her legal and professional correspondences on my behalf have consistently been timely, polished, and succinct. She is a kind person, and advised me sensibly. I found her professional approach rational, polished, and direct. She patiently responded to all my questions within reasonable timeframes. Her assistant Brenda Rager is wonderful, as is her entire firm's staff.
She is a credit to her profession and I would recommend her to anyone.
Family and Matrimonial Law Featured Practice Areas
When a marriage is heading for divorce, a number of disputes may arise regarding the grounds for divorce and the division of property. Our lawyers can help with both contentious and amicable splits, always seeking what's best for you.
Unlike a divorce, a separation does not end a marriage. Instead, separation means that spouses have stopped living together. Keep in mind that legal separation will still involve discussions of property and custody, which is why you need a lawyer.
Child support ensures that both parents share in the financial responsibility of raising a child. Our family law office can establish paternity, negotiate modifications to support, and hold parents legally accountable for late payments.
Also known as alimony, spousal support and maintenance is sought after a divorce or separation. Our family law firm can help determine how much alimony is owed and how long spousal support will be provided given the length of the marriage.
Often the most heated aspect of a divorce, disputes over custody and visitation must focus on the best interests of your child. Our lawyers are available to advocate for you as a parent and provider.
Prenuptial agreements can protect spouses in the event of a divorce or separation. These legally binding documents can preemptively set terms for property division and spousal support. Our Glenville law firm can help you draft an airtight prenuptial agreement.
Adopting a child can be more challenging than you may realize. Our legal team has helped many couples and individuals in Upstate New York adopt children through agencies, relatives, and even from international locations.
