Every couple faces unique challenges. When a marriage ends, you deserve representation designed to meet your specific needs — guidance from an attorney who doesn’t just dictate a solution, but who asks the question: What is best for you?
At Ostertag O’Leary Barrett & Faulkner, our Poughkeepsie divorce attorneys tailor solutions to each client’s needs. We take the time to learn about you, so we can understand what you want out of the process. We start with the story of your relationship. We continue with your concerns and plans for the future. Then, we develop a divorce strategy that helps you reach your goals by addressing all the issues that may affect you, such as:
The traditional way to get divorced involves the spouses taking sides against each other in litigation. Our attorneys have decades of experience handling contentious court battles for clients, and we will not hesitate to do so for you if it is necessary.
However, we have found that a relatively new method of family dispute resolution leads to much less conflict and much happier outcomes. That method is called collaborative divorce.
In collaborative divorce, you and your spouse are each represented by a family law attorney. Everyone agrees to resolve the issues in your divorce through discussion and agreement instead of going to court. We then work with mental health professionals and financial specialists to reach resolutions that fit each person’s needs. All divorce-related issues, such as custody, property division and child support can all be resolved using the collaborative process, and it is done without the anger and bitterness commonly associated with the end of a marriage.
We believe in reasonable actions and sensible solutions that protect our clients’ interests. We can use whatever dispute resolution method is best suited to you and your family situation.
