Matrimonial Law

New York Matrimonial Law Attorney

Matrimonial law, otherwise known as “family law,” relates to issues surrounding the nature of marriage, property division, entry into a marriage, children, termination of marriage, and child and spousal support.

Entry into Marriage

Matrimonial law deals with how couples enter into marriage by covering issues like prenuptial agreements and the legal requirements of a marriage. A prenuptial agreement can determine the rights of each spouse regarding marital property, child custody, spousal support, estate issues, separate property and other issues regarding the marriage. It is an agreement entered into between the spouses before the marriage.

Termination of Marriage

Matrimonial law in each state deals with issues regarding the termination of marriage by setting up rules about divorce and annulments. The family law of each state determines when an otherwise valid marriage can be terminated by divorce or when a marriage was never valid in the first place.

Child & Spousal Support

Matrimonial law in each state deals with issues regarding support of a person’s spouse and/or child by establishing formulas and criteria regarding child support and spousal maintenance. A state’s family and divorce law establishes the criteria regarding when someone needs to pay the support for the other spouse and/or for child support, how much needs to be paid, and for how long. There are also tax ramifications involved.

    “Lois is the absolute best”
    Finding my way to Lois was the best thing that could have happened during my very contentious divorce. Lois took on my case with a level of care that has been above and beyond. She has been an incredible advocate for me, both legally, guiding me through this difficult process with knowledge and wisdom, and also personally, helping give me strength and support to stand up to my very aggressive ex husband. Lois is a gift, and I am so grateful to her and for the future she is helping to make possible to myself and for my son.

    “"High Net Worth Professionals"”
    I am a highly successful money manager and before meeting Lois Brenner, hiring a divorce attorney was a disaster. Two previous divorce attorneys really wasted my funds, and had no savvy when it came to asset and property distribution. Lois Brenner finally fixed the mess I was in. She and her team of financial experts, including attorney Matthew Ehrlich were able to prepare an asset and property distribution that was realistic, keeping in mind tax ramifications, and important distributions and allocations. They negotiated a thorough and financially sound divorce settlement. If you have a lot of assets, just any divorce attorney won’t do. You really need someone with a lot of knowledge. Lois Brenner and Matthew Ehrlich were really impressive. Thanks!!

    “"Amazing, Skilled Mediator"”
    Amazing, Skillful Mediator!!!! We went to see Lois Brenner for a mediation consultation. We had pretty much decided our marriage was over. We just wanted to end things fair and amicably. Lois Brenner spent so much time with us, and gave us great insight as to how the process would help us, we hired her on the spot. Our sessions thereafter were stealth. She organized us, helped us identify and address all the issues. She showed us how to communicate effectively throughout the process. We were able to address all our issues, especially property and finances, arrive at a comfortable settlement agreement, and now we are waiting for the judge to sign our divorce. What an extraordinary process. I highly recommend Lois Brenner and mediation. She’s super, and mediation really works.

    “Smart, tough, responsive Attorney !”
    When my daughter was sideswiped and served with a summons by her husband we called Lois Brenner. I had met Lois when she was giving a seminar on Marriage and Finances. I thought she was really smart. I never dreamt I would be calling her to help my daughter. When we went to see her she put our minds at ease. We immediately knew she was the attorney for us. She managed to negotiate a really good settlement with my son-in-law’s attorney. She was tough and always returned our phone calls and responded immediately to our emails. We even heard from her on weekends!! She was determined to keep us out of court and guided us every step of the way. She was our Angel!!! Mary B.

    “Remarkable lawyer and lady!”
    Lois Brenner is a remarkable attorney and compassionate advocate for dads. She guided me when I was confused and didn't know what to do to get shared custody of my daughter. She encouraged me to stay strong and to fight, and she negotiated a much better custody arrangement than my previous lawyer. What great attorney. Thank you Ms. Brenner

    “She is responsive, and answered my emails within a couple of minutes every time. Highly rated!”
    Lois acted as the mediator in my divorce, and she was absolutely excellent. It was a very difficult time for me personally, but Lois made the process as easy and painless as it could possibly have been. She listened to each of us separately, and made thoughtful and helpful suggestions. She is fair, and seemed to genuinely care about finding a solution that was best for both parties. Lois is perfectly qualified to handle this type of situation, given her background in psychology. She truly understands people, and used this ability to keep my ex-husband and I calm, and smoothly navigate a few tricky situations. I felt very understood by Lois, and think that she not just a top-quality attorney, but also a very decent person. She is responsive, and answered my emails within a couple of minutes every time. Highly rated!
