Matrimonial and Family Law

Kanfer & Holtzer handles the spectrum of issues that arise in the highly-personal and evolving areas of matrimonial and family law. Using a broad base of knowledge gained over decades of practice, the Firm focuses on the best interests of litigants and their children and then creates an individualized strategy to achieve the desired result.

Every effort is made to resolve each matter at the earliest possible stage without judicial intervention, whether through a negotiated settlement or guiding a client through arbitration or mediation. However, when an out-of-court settlement cannot be achieved, the Firm appears in Family and Supreme Courts throughout the New York metropolitan area and zealously represents each client through trial and appeal, if necessary.

The Firm’s matrimonial and family law practice includes:

  • Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements
  • Separation Agreements
  • Spousal maintenance (alimony) and pendente lite applications
  • Imputed income
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Valuation of marital and separate property
