Bringing Stability Back Into Your Life During Family Law Disputes
People come to The Law Office of Chad M. Powers after months, if not years, of stress over the end of their marriage. For them, I provide individualized representation. I spend the time necessary with them to identify the unique issues surrounding their divorce. From there, I customize strategies in pursuit of the best outcome for them and their children.
The Need For A Dedicated Lawyer When Life Events Create Legal Complexities
Specific areas of my family law practice include:
- Divorce: I represent New York residents and military personnel serving in the area facing the end of their marriage. I take on the complexities of their cases while helping them make good decisions and lookout for the best interests of their children.
- Child custody and visitation: Clients come to me with misconceptions that can compromise their rights to post-divorce parenting time. Fathers in particular often assume that their gender will prevent them from obtaining custody and/or gaining significant quality time with their children post-divorce. I provide them with the facts and help them assert their father’s rights.
- Child and spousal support: Challenges exist when one spouse owns a business or enjoys self-employed status. Lacking a W2 or other types of income documentation requires me to dig deeper into their income, often with the help of financial experts and forensic accountants.
- Equitable distribution of property: From vacation properties to pensions, I take a detail-oriented approach in developing a marital property inventory. When one spouse is not being forthcoming and hiding assets, I go more in-depth in my fact-finding with my network of expert financial professionals.
