Experienced Divorce Representation In Western New York
Once you have made the difficult decision to end your marriage, it is important to enlist the services of an experienced divorce attorney who will protect your interests and help you navigate the process. I am Rebecca J. Talmud, a lawyer with more than a decade of experience assisting residents of the Greater Buffalo-Niagara region with divorce and all of the legal decisions that come with it.
I understand that divorce is an emotional process, particularly if you have children who will be affected by their parents ending their relationship. That is why I bring a high level of personal interaction and instinctive empathy to my practice. I will take the time to explain New York family law statutes and help you set realistic goals in:
- Child custody and parenting plans
- Child support and spousal support
- Division of marital property
- Domestic abuse and orders of protection
- Enforcement of orders
- Modifications to existing orders
A Sensible Approach To Resolving Divorce Disputes
If you and your spouse already have the framework of an agreement settled and you expect to reach agreement amicably, you may wish to opt for an uncontested divorce. If you and your spouse each want to retain legal representation and commit to resolving any disputes without litigating, a collaborative divorce may be the best option. I can explain the benefits of both processes and the important differences between the two during a free consultation.
Of course, there are times when a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation and litigation is necessary. I am an accomplished litigator who is always prepared to advocate for my clients in court whenever necessary. I have extensive experience representing clients who have substantial assets that require careful valuation and a knowledgeable approach to property division.
