Our firm provides guidance from separation to entry of final papers, and beyond. We will represent you in court or help you negotiate an out-of-court settlement. We are experienced in litigation, mediation, arbitration and settlement discussions. We also handle post-decree issues, including transfer of property, division of retirement benefits and enforcement of court orders and parenting plans. We can help you modify child support or residential arrangements if that is appropriate in your case.

Prenuptial and marital agreements can be very complicated and are often not enforced by a court unless they are carefully written. An attorney can help ensure a prenuptial agreement will be enforceable. For questions regarding prenuptial agreements, or to have a prenuptial agreement drafted, please contact us.

A domestic violence protection order or anti-harassment order can provide you with legal protection from a person who is harassing or harming you. If you need help obtaining a domestic violence protection order or anti-harassment order, or need help defending against allegations of domestic violence or harassment, please contact attorney Leonard K. Lucenko, Jr. or attorney Kevin Meserve.

For defense regarding an accusation of domestic violence, please see Criminal Law & Traffic Infractions.
