Divorce Attorneys With Decades Of Experience
Too many people think of divorce as a battle, with a winner and a loser at the end of the process. At The Pickel Law Firm, LLC, we understand that not all divorces need to be contested while others require strong zealous advocacy.
An amicable divorce can save you both time and money. Our lead attorney, Alan Scott Pickel, has been extremely well-reputed in handling mediated and collaborative divorces, oftentimes being hired by both parties to help them resolve their divorce and parenting issues. With this in mind, we work alongside couples to oversee amicable divorce resolutions whenever possible.
Our Stamford office has been handling complex and high-asset divorce cases since 1990. We know that the simplest approach can sometimes be the best. However, not all cases can be settled simply. You may be facing a highly difficult or contested divorce. Our strong legal team will fight for your best interests in court if your spouse cannot agree to a fair division of assets.
A Skilled Hand For Divorce And Asset Division Cases
Courts, judges and other lawyers regularly call on our lead attorney, Alan Scott Pickel, as a special master for his ability to assist couples in highly contested divorces. He is a fact-finder, an arbitrator and trial referee who can help with the following issues and more:
Property can be a sticking point in any divorce. It’s only natural that both parties share sentimental attachment to a favorite vacation home or a marital residence, especially if they have spent years or decades owning and improving the property. We can guide you and protect your interests.
Who gets the house?
Depending on your situation, there might have already been a decision based on who gets your home. But do you know how to account for upkeep costs, property taxes and other expenses when exchanging other assets for a house? We can help.
Shared retirement accounts and business assets
You’ve worked hard and paid into a retirement account for years, and now it has come up in divorce proceedings. Our firm can help determine worth and how best to handle long-term accounts such as 401(k), IRA and Roth IRA accounts. We have experience with difficult asset division and dividing business assets, stock options, etc.
This can be the most difficult of financial issues. Our team of attorneys has years of experience in protecting both spouses when it comes to this sensitive issue of spousal support/alimony. Our attorneys can usually help reach a reasonable compromise that works for both parties, but we are always prepared to go to battle if your spouse is being unreasonable.
Raising children takes time and money. Connecticut has child support guidelines that apply to most situations but not all cases. Now that you and your partner are not sharing resources, our lawyers can help guide you in forming an agreement that helps maintain the best interests of your children.
