Whether you expect your divorce to proceed smoothly through negotiations or you think things may be aggressively contested, it is important to be represented by an experienced attorney who takes the time to understand your situation and develop a legal strategy that accomplishes your key objectives.

At Arnel Law Firm in Brooklyn, New York, our divorce attorneys have more than 40 years of cumulative experience handling divorce and all of the legal issues that come with it.

If you select us to represent you, we become committed to putting you in the best possible position to begin your post-divorce life. That means protecting your interests and fighting for your rights in terms of child custody or visitation, property division, child support, enforcement of support orders, spousal support and more. Whether you are seeking a divorce involving significant assets or require a same-sex divorce, we help with a wide range of divorce issues.

“I was fortunate to be represented by you in my divorce case. The emotional drain on me was significant, and I am glad you were there. Your hearty spirit and boundless energy were the perfect antidote to my flagging spirit and resolve. I am no longer feeling defeated, and I am looking forward to life with renewed spirit and vigor. Curt, you are largely responsible for making some room in my life for serenity.”

Our Attorneys Have The Skill You Seek

Led by attorney Curt Arnel, a CPA and family law attorney, our legal team is fully capable of handling complex divorces involving substantial assets or family businesses. We take the time to fully understand your situation and talk through your objectives before creating a legal strategy.

If you and your spouse are aiming for an amicable split, we will lead you through the collaborative divorce process in order to resolve matters efficiently and cost-effectively, reducing the stress for all involved.

If you expect more of a contested divorce, we will stand by you throughout and ensure that your rights are protected. Our experienced guidance will help you distinguish between the issues that are worth standing your ground on and those in which it makes more sense to reach a compromise.

Equally Effective In Negotiation And Trials

An experienced trial lawyer is an effective negotiator. If a lawyer is afraid of going into the courtroom, that lawyer will have no leverage in negotiations. We are at home in the courtroom, arguing at trial, so we can negotiate from a position of strength. When we face an opponent and determine that he or she will not be able to match us in trial, we know that we have the upper hand. We also know that, having handled these cases day in and day out, taking them to trial and winning, no opponent will get the upper hand over us.

In negotiation, we assist you in reaching as many agreements as possible with your spouse. By doing so, both of you retain optimum control over the structure of your post-divorce life rather than leave these critical decisions to a judge who does not know you or your children.

Same-Sex Divorces

Our lawyers also handle same-sex divorces. When New York lawmakers passed the Marriage Equality Act in June 2011 allowing same-sex couples to legally marry, it opened up an entire new area of family law.
