At Wisselman & Associates, we handle all types of divorce and family
law issues. Should a divorce become necessary, some of the issues that
may arise include:
Many couples prefer not to drag their private matters through the courts,
so an alternative to this is
divorce mediation. Find out if mediation is the right choice for you by giving us a call.
Is Divorce Mediation Right for Your Family?
Mediation is best for couples who communicate well and want to seek an amicable
divorce. If you and your spouse are in agreement regarding the major elements
of your divorce, mediation may be a viable option for you. Our Long Island
family law attorneys can act as mediators to help you find the right divorce
settlement. After working with both parties, we will draft a written divorce
settlement. Because mediation avoids court, it is cost and time-efficient.
Child Custody, Child Support & Visitation
One of the most challenging aspects of a divorce is determining child custody.
We understand that each parent wants what is best for their children,
but it is sometimes difficult to see eye to eye with the other parent
after a breakup. In handling these legal matters for our clients, we take
care to address both the emotional and financial ramifications; using
our legal knowledge, we seek outcomes that will truly be in our clients'
Each of the attorneys at Wisselman & Associates is recognized by the
legal, mental health and medical communities for their lectures and published
articles on family law matters. Their reputation as advocates for mothers, fathers,
grandparents and children is a testament to their skill, expertise and social conscience.
Take a proactive approach to your family law case by consulting an attorney
at our Long Island law offices.
