We necessarily note for our readers and diverse clientele across Connecticut that family law is seldom a do-it-yourself proposition. The issues that arise from family-based interactions across a wide spectrum of concerns can be dauntingly complex.
The attorneys at Berdon, Young & Margolis, PC, know that intimately well, given our firm's decades-long involvement with client matters that span the virtual entirety of family law considerations. From the simple to the hyper-complex, our client advocacy in every matter focuses unwaveringly on a best-case result.
One thing that is immediately notable regarding family law is how singular issues can quickly transform into blended considerations.
Take child custody, for example, which often entails concerns that encompass parental visitation, a parent's relocation and modifications to existing court orders mandated by material changes in family circumstances.
Child support concerns can stretch out, too, to include a focus on spousal support (alimony) and tax-related considerations to both the payer and recipient.
And property division is a realm unto itself, especially in so-called "high asset divorces," where the sources of wealth can be truly wide-based and complex (spanning investment accounts, company-sponsored savings vehicles, pensions, stock option, bonuses, multiple realty holdings, family-owned business holdings, heirlooms, artwork, valuable memorabilia collections and more).
In Connecticut, all those assets must be duly identified and, where appropriate, designated as marital property subject to an equitable division between two soon-to-be ex-spouses. An accurate valuation must be arrived at. In some instances, a bad-faith partner will seek to hide assets, which must be methodically searched for and recovered.
Competent and empathetic representation in all facets of family law mandates proven acumen on the legal team entrusted to promote a client's best interests. We take due pride in our firm's history and demonstrated advocacy, modestly pointing out the true "depth of legal knowledge and experience" that our firm brings to bear in every matter we undertake.
We welcome contacts to the firm and the opportunity to diligently represent clients with all their family law-related concerns.
