Protecting Your Financial Best Interests
Various assets and financial matters, such as the property you own, child support payments, retirement accounts, debt, taxes, and many other financial issues are intricately tied into divorce proceedings.
The Law Office of Tzvi Y. Hagler, P.C. can help guide you into making the right decisions regarding your financial matters. We take our jobs seriously and will work hard to ensure your best interests are protected throughout the legal process.
We believe in providing a thorough case evaluation before working on any project, which helps us in attaining certain objectives. Apart from seeking your desired result, we want to ensure the accurate and equitable distribution of all your marital assets, if applicable.
Drafting Valid Prenuptial Agreements
A proven way to protect your financial well-being is through a prenuptial agreement.
Also known as a prenup, a premarital agreement provides details on how your property, assets, and debt will be handled should you leave your spouse. Prenuptial agreements must be signed by both parties (neither of whom can be under duress at the time) before marriage. If either spouse feels pressured into signing, the agreement will likely be considered invalid by a judge.
If you are already married to your spouse, you may be able to get a postnuptial agreement, or “postnup.” A postnup is the same as a prenup, except it is drafted and signed after marriage.
Helping Clients Through Uncontested & Contested Divorces
Uncontested Divorces in New York
In an uncontested divorce, you may be able to avoid the courtroom. If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse can mutually agree on certain issues, such as visitation schedules, division of property, and support payments, our Nassau County family law attorneys can work with you to dissolve the issues as peacefully as possible.
In these cases, we provide excellent communication and compassionate guidance to help you through the process without unnecessary confrontation.
Contested Divorce in New York
A contested divorce is one in which spouses cannot agree on one or more legal issues related to their split. Unfortunately, even when two people want to work together, certain areas and topics (such as who gets the children) can lead to disruptive disagreements.
Our family law lawyers can help you navigate contested divorce. We will work hard to negotiate with your spouse and their lawyer, but if needed, we will represent you in court. We fight hard and fair, working to minimize the stress that comes with these cases.
