Domestic Partnership Agreements and Dissolutions
At the law office of Marjory B. Cohen, Ms. Cohen promotes a non-adversarial environment. Family law issues can be highly emotional, especially when there are children involved. She recognizes that and works to keep the focus on all parties’ best interests. If it comes to litigation, her extensive background as a trial lawyer comes into play and she provides her clients zealous representation.

Pre-Nuptial and Post Nuptial Agreements

Family law encompasses more than simply divorce. Prior to a marriage or after the ceremony, couples may agree to pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreements. However, having an agreement does not guarantee that it will be valid and enforceable. As an experienced family law attorney, she works to ensure that the documents signed are binding.

Legal Separation

There are times when a couple does not wish to make that ultimate decision and file for divorce. They may decide on a legal separation while they work through their issues. Whether the separation is temporary or long-term, arrangements related to finances, property, and support all need to be formally agreed on by both parties maintaining separate households.

Divorce is a very personal matter. The outcome of a divorce can have a tremendous impact on the lives of men, women and children for years and even decades after a divorce is finalized. With so much at stake it is crucial to have a lawyer on your side with the experience and resources to protect your interests and work closely with you every step of the way.

When it comes to divorce, I understand that all of my clients have individual needs and unique goals. I take the time to understand where my clients are coming from and what represents a successful outcome for them and their children. I listen closely and ensure they understand their options and are prepared for every phase of the legal process.

I provide thoughtful legal advice and thorough representation in all areas of divorce, including issues such as:

  • Child custody and parenting time
  • Child support
  • Modification of divorce judgment

Due to the cost-effectiveness and reduced emotional burden, I prefer to achieve divorce settlements in an amicable fashion. However, if a settlement is not in my client’s best interest, I am fully prepared to go to trial. I have extensive trial experience in family law, criminal law and personal injury which have prepared me for the rigors of the courtroom.
