Matrimonial services tailored to your specific needs

Contested divorces:

  • These are adversarial proceedings that take place if the spouses are not in agreement

  • Commencing the divorce action

  • Obtaining temporary relief while the divorce action is pending, including temporary maintenance, temporary custody/visitation, temporary child support, exclusive use of the marital residence, and/or legal fees.

  • Prosecuting the action all the way through trial and post-judgment issues as necessary

 

Uncontested divorces:

  • Answering all client questions

  • Addressing all client concerns

 

Something in-between:

  • This refers to a very common situation.  Both spouses wish to get divorced but are not in complete agreement on all the issues.

  • Division of marital assets

  • Spousal maintenance (“alimony”)

  • Child support

  • Child custody and visitation

  • Expert assistance in resolving the issues in a fair and legally sound manner, while enabling the spouses to proceed to an uncontested divorce

 

Collaborative divorce:

  • This is a relatively new technique that aims to support the spouses as they proceed toward divorce. The goal is not only to achieve a fair and amicable dissolution of the marriage, but to implement an effective framework for the parties’ post-divorce relationship. The parties’ post-divorce relationship can go on for decades, and often includes such critical matters as raising the parties’ children.

  • Each party will have his or her own attorney; however, the attorneys should be trained in collaborative practice.

  • Additional professionals are brought into the process as necessary. These professions can include mediators, child specialists, and financial specialists.

  • By using this method, all participants are committed to resolving marital issues without litigation

  • Jacob Tuckfelt has received extensive training in this area, and is an active member of the Hudson Valley Collaborative Divorce Association.

 

Agreements:

  • Separation agreements

  • Pre-marital agreement (“pre-nuptial agreements”)

  • Post-marital agreements (agreements between parties who are presently married, and can cover such things as how assets will be divided in the event of a divorce).
