Divorce is more than the End of a Relationship

For over 40 years we have been assisting clients with family law matters including:

  • Collaborative divorce – This approach involves open communication between involved parties with professional assistance from legal counsel, but without court intervention. For more information, on collaborative divorce, please visit the Mohawk Valley Association of Collaborative Law Professionals Web page.
  • Divorce – We can assist with all related matters including the division of assets. This may lead to division of pensions (QDROs)
  • Spousal support – The state statutory formula used as a guideline. It takes into account the length of the marriage and the differences in income of the parties. Support may be awarded on a temporary or permanent basis.
  • QDROs – Also known as Qualified Domestic Relation Orders, Michael G. Putter is highly regarded for his ability to transfer interests in pensions.
  • Child Custody and Visitation – Collaborative law is especially important when children are involved since the main goal should be to make the divorce as easy on the children as possible.
  • Child support – Support is based on a state statutory formula designed to ensure that the best interests of the children are being met. We often assist out of state clients by meeting with them over the phone to learn their goals.
  • Modifications – If there has been a substantial change in circumstances such as a change in income of one of the parents, or a parent wants to relocate, we can help to modify existing child support, custody and visitation orders.
  • Contempt/enforcement actions – If there is an order of support, an attorney can issue an attorney income execution without having to go to court.
