Buffalo, NY When Divorce Litigation Attorneys
The Erie and Niagara region litigation team for contested marriage dissolutions
At Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman, LLP, our attorneys have represented clients in matters of divorce, separation, post-divorce enforcement and modification applications and many types of family court petitions involving child custody, custodial access (visitation), paternity, child support and domestic violence since 1976. We understand that an amicable settlement may not be available in every situation, as the emotional nature of the dispute often gets in the way. Our goal is to achieve the best possible results for you by vigorously advocating for your interests every step of the way.
Resolving your divorce in the courtroom and in negotiation
Depending on the nature of your divorce, you may never step foot in a courtroom — in those cases, whether divorce mediation or collaborative divorce or another court-free method, you and your former spouse work together. At other times, you and your former spouse may disagree on issues such as maintenance (alimony), child support, child custody or division of property and debts. No matter what the situation may be, Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman, LLP attorneys based in the Buffalo region can assist you inside and outside of the courtroom. If property division or professional licenses are at stake, we work with accountants and experts to determine their value. When alimony, child support and custody issues arise, a Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman, LLP attorney can protect your rights under New York law. When necessary, we have access to financial specialists, business appraisers, child psychologists, child custody evaluators and many other professionals who can help us represent you best. Our divorce litigators are experienced at negotiating an advantageous settlement for you or at presenting your case in the most persuasive light possible should the need for trial arise.
