Advocating For You In A Contested Divorce
Divorce can be one of the most stressful experiences in life. During the breakup of a marriage, even the most rational person can sometimes make irrational decisions. At this critical point in your life, you need sound and clearheaded advice. The outcome of your divorce will shape your life for many years to come.
At my practice, Barbara J. Katzenberg, Attorney at Law, I help both men and women throughout Worcester and Massachusetts make the right decisions about contested divorce and related matters such as:
- Child custody disputes and visitation
- Division of marital property
- Child support and alimony
- And other matters arising from divorce
I am experienced, knowledgeable and committed to helping each client come through the divorce process with dignity and respect.
Call me at 508-471-3281. I can provide an objective assessment of your case and discuss how I could help you make a successful transition to life after divorce.
Committed To Protecting Your Rights And Interests
When we first meet, I will review your situation and identify any unique aspects of your case. I will explain the legal process of divorce and what you can expect as your case proceeds. Working closely with you, I will develop a legal strategy designed to achieve your goals while protecting your rights.
My experience spans the full range of divorce cases — from uncontested divorces to those concerning contentious custody and financial disputes. I have particular experience in high-asset divorce cases involving complex property division related to businesses, real estate and other marital assets. I also handle cases involving difficult child custody issues such as parental removals (also called move-aways) and contested custody removal disputes.
Realistic Assessment Of Your Contested Divorce Case
I help my clients choose the legal strategy best suited for achieving their goals. While for many people this involves a negotiated or mediated settlement in an uncontested divorce process, for others it involves a litigated resolution. It is important to recognize that any divorce dispute left to the court to decide can result in an unanticipated outcome. While I always provide a realistic assessment of each case, the judge has discretionary power to decide important issues, such as custody determination, property division, and spousal or child support. I use my extensive experience to litigate assertively on these issues in an effort to achieve my client’s goals.
