Matrimonial and Family

When legal action is necessary to resolve family conflicts, it is essential that you entrust your most private matters to compassionate and knowledgeable family law attorneys. At CBMS, our dedicated attorneys serve as good listeners, confidants and zealous advocates for all our clients during their most difficult times.

When domestic issues cannot be solved within the home, family law seeks to restore order and provide a fair solution for all parties involved. Whether it is divorce, child custody, financial or property-related conflicts, it is important to have proper legal representation. Capell Barnett Matalon & Schoenfeld’s team of family lawyers understands how overwhelming and traumatic these processes can be. Legal representation in these matters require caring and understanding for the parties involved, and the ability to prioritize the needs of each.

Since these times of turmoil can also affect your finances, whether it is the equitable distribution of assets, the valuation of business, degrees, separate or jointly held property or funds, a demand for child support or alimony/maintenance, it is important to have a qualified attorney who will not only help you negotiate the best possible long-term financial results, but who will employ all the means necessary to value assets and business holdings, even those that may be difficult to uncover.

In divorce and child custody cases, our firm has over 20 years of experience and can help to determine the best custody and financial arrangements for you and your children. We’re committed to promoting strong involvement by both parents and putting the children’s needs above all else. Our compassionate team will work with you to achieve the best possible outcome while preserving your parental rights and protecting the children’s best interests.

If couples wish to avoid the stress of the courtroom, divorce mediation is a viable option. Couples who mediate (and their children) are generally happier because they feel they are more directly involved with the outcome. Our attorneys can provide mediation services to you and your spouse or partner to help you avoid court.

In this emotionally, financially and legally challenging time, it is essential to surround yourself with trusted advisors. CBMS provides you with the legal and emotional support to get you back on your feet so you can move on with your life.
