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.

    ““Great Lady””
    I met Lois Brenner at a networking group. She spoke on divorce and mediation. At the time I was not in need of a divorce attorney but was so impressed I kept her information. Two years later I hired Lois Brenner and I am finally separated from a man who nearly destroyed my life. Although we were able to do this with her in mediation, it was not easy for me. She really kept me strong, and on top of myself. She was helpful with both of us, and encouraged each of us when needed. It was much better than going through the court system. It took a lot less time and saved us money too. I can’t say enough about her. She is a special attorney. I tell everyone who will listen how special she is.

    “Lois is a "Rock Star"”
    Lois is a “Rock Star” I was very worried about my daughter who was in a really bad marriage. I started researching divorce attorneys and found Lois Brenner. I called her, discussed my daughter’s horrible marriage and she agreed to meet with us. Since my daughter’s husband wanted out of the marriage too (he was cheating), Lois suggested she help them dissolve their marriage in mediation. To my surprise it worked out. Lois was able to keep my daughter and husband from fighting during their sessions, and she helped them resolve all their financial issues. Since I was paying the fees to help my daughter, not having to go to court saved us a great deal of money. As a father, I am truly grateful for everything Lois did. Her talks with me in the beginning of the process, to calm me down, really helped. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of divorce.

    “Wonderful Divorce Lawyer”
    My divorce was very stressful time. Since we were able to agree with my ex-husband on many important issues I originally thought that I will be able to fill in all the necessary documents by myself. It turned out that it is nearly impossible task. The amount of paperwork was overwhelming! I was not happy with some lawyers I've approached - too expensive, too impersonal, too aggressive. When I met Lois everything changed. For very reasonable price she was able to help us - talked to both of us, gave us great suggestions. Everything went extremely well. It was quick and painless. We could not thank her enough!
    “She was very thorough and efficient!”

    “Lois is the absolute best”
    Connecting with Lois was the best thing that could have happened during what has been very difficult and fraught divorce. Lois took on my case with knowledge, wisdom and care that have been above and beyond in every way. She recognized abusive and unstable behavior in my ex-husband, and offered both strong legal guidance, as well as personal encouragement and strength to stand up to him. Her support has been invaluable to me, and I am so deeply grateful for everything she has done in helping forge a better more stable future for me and for my son.

    “Best Divorce Lawyers in NYC!!”
    Best Divorce Lawyers in NYC!! I can’t say enough about Lois Brenner. She saved my life. I was really being abused by my husband. I wanted a divorce, but I was scared to leave. Hiring her provided me with a support system that helped me break free of a destructive marriage. She, along with her team of professionals, and her litigation colleague Matt really gave me the backbone to step up and out. My children are safe, I’m back at work, and we are no longer afraid. The ongoing legal and personal support made all of this possible. Working with Lois and Matt was a life-changing experience. Katie M.

    “LOIS AND MATT ARE LIT!”
    You two are really the dynamic duo! I can’t thank you both enough for the incredible job you did on my case. As a young career woman and working mother of a toddler I could not have been in better hands. You really toughened me up and guided me when I was feeling really lost. I was afraid of my husband’s clever antics but you worked hard on my case and encouraged me to fight. The settlement I received exceeded my expectations. You both listened, always returned e-mails, phone calls and even reached out to me on the weekends when I was having trouble. If anyone is going through a divorce and needs the best people to fight for you call Lois and Matt. It was the best thing I ever did. There are no words to express how grateful I am.
