Comprehensive Command Of New York Family Law Matters
The practice of family law can impact every stage of a person’s life, from marriage and divorce to decisions for a child’s upbringing, family finances, the need for protection from domestic violence and many more important considerations.
I am family law attorney Robert G. Smith. When you work with my Robert G. Smith, PLLC, law firm in New York City, I will not overstate my ability to achieve your objectives, or play on your emotions and give you false hopes. I will give you straight talk, realistic assessments and intelligent counsel. With more than 40 years of experience, I have a good idea about the possible outcomes of a case, and I will use that knowledge to help you.
You Want A Lawyer Who Knows The Rules
You do not require a license or permission from the state to fall in love or to have children. But when you or your spouse files for divorce or disagrees on child custody arrangements, you are playing by New York’s rules.
I know these rules inside-out. I use this knowledge to help you achieve your objectives and protect yourself, your children and your property when these family law issues arise:
- Divorce and high net worth divorce
- Contested divorce litigation
- Child support
- Child custody and relocation
- Property division, nonmarital property and tax considerations
- Protection of assets and businesses
- Post-judgment modifications of child custody, child support and spousal maintenance
- Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
- Common law and same-sex marriages
- Blended families
- Paternity proceedings
I have handled many high-asset and high-profile divorces. I have a deep commitment to maintaining client confidentiality and providing sober advice about the best available options.
During my decades of service as a family law and divorce attorney, the vast majority of my clients have been satisfied and proud of the work we have done together.
