Divorce can be one of the most trying times in an individual's life. There are a wide variety of emotions and stress levels that are running high. Few people anticipate divorce, but it is important to know that you are not alone. It is also important to know that, in time, things do and will get better. Having a dedicated attorney in your corner makes all the difference.
It is essential that you call on a Staten Island family law attorney who genuinely cares about you and your goals while maintaining a no-nonsense, straightforward and professional relationship with you and your family. I genuinely put my clients' interests first. It is my first objective to achieve your goals without creating unnecessary drama and costs in litigating your divorce case. I will be abundantly candid in advising you of your legal rights and responsibilities.
I am attorney Kurt Richards, and I have represented more than 3,000 clients successfully in their divorce and family court matters, in both New York and New Jersey.
Taking The Approach That's Right For You
At my Staten Island, New York firm, Kurt T. Richards, P.C., I strongly believe in avoiding unnecessary litigation without jeopardizing your rights and saving you money. However, litigation is sometimes needed to secure your rights. If your spouse or his or her attorney takes a contrary position to what the law clearly provides, then we will litigate to secure your rights in court.
While I enjoy the challenge of family law, I am not in the business of selling fantasies. As a reputable lawyer, I listen closely to my clients. I will gather the facts, give you a candid view of your situation and tell you what to expect when it comes to equitable distribution, child support, child custody, spousal support and more.
Experience Makes A Difference
It is important that you retain an attorney who is seasoned in representing clients in divorce and family court matters. Drawing on more than 25 years of experience representing family law clients throughout New York and New Jersey, I give my clients a personal level of attention and dedication that leads to the best possible outcome. An experienced attorney can make the difference in SAVING you money, time and unnecessary aggravation. An experienced attorney will know, for example, when a particular marital issue should be tried, and when it is wise and under what terms to settle.
