Brooklyn Divorce Lawyer | Serving New York and New Jersey
Men who are going through a divorce, paternity proceeding, child custody dispute or other family law matter often feel that they are at a disadvantage. All too often, they feel that the system is stacked against them.
While fathers' rights is a term that relates largely to child custody and visitation issues — including the related issue of child support — the term men's rights, in the context of family law, refers primarily to financial matters. Such matters include property division, spousal support, prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, and division of marital debts.
As a man, you have the same rights under New York and New Jersey law as a woman. You have a right to an equitable division of the marital estate. You have a right to be treated fairly. Attorney Philip A. Greenberg can protect your rights.
Put a Premier Family Law Attorney on Your Side
For more than 30 years, attorney Philip A. Greenberg has been fighting for the rights of men in divorce and family law matters. He believes that men and women should be treated equally under the law. He understands that both men and women love their children dearly and that both men and women face difficult financial challenges during and after a divorce.
What often happens to men in a divorce is that key issues are considered individually, thus obscuring the complete financial reality a man faces after a divorce. For example, a man may be ordered to pay child support and spousal support and receive a smaller share of the marital estate as well.
Philip A. Greenberg takes a global view of his clients' cases, taking into account the manner in which issues such as child support, property division, marital debt and spousal support will collectively impact his clients' financial security. He provides his clients with candid advice as well, which is critical. By doing so, he empowers his clients to make informed decisions about their cases, which will positively impact the outcomes of their cases.
Strategic Planning and Proactive Case Management
As an experienced divorce lawyer, Philip A. Greenberg understands that taking cases to court is often not in a client's best interests. He understands that negotiating creative agreements that benefit both parties is often the best way to secure the most financially advantageous outcome in a divorce. He is always prepared to vigorously protect his clients' rights in the courtroom when an opposing party is unwilling to be reasonable, but he also understands the value of resolving cases creatively and cost efficiently.
Creativity is often an overlooked and undervalued trait in a divorce lawyer. From decades of experience, Mr. Greenberg may be able to discern ways to effectively resolve your case in a manner that may be overlooked by less-experienced attorneys.
Mr. Greenberg starts each case by listening to his client. He takes time to understand your objectives and put in place legal measures with your needs in mind. He then prepares each case for the possibility of trial and negotiates simultaneously with your spouse's counsel to seek a favorable resolution on your behalf. Should negotiation, mediation and other alternative dispute resolution measures fail to resolve disputed matters, Mr. Greenberg is a skilled and experienced trial lawyer who will vigorously defend your rights and interests in the courtroom.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Attorney Philip A. Greenberg has more than 30 years of experience helping clients prepare for marriage with prenuptial agreements. If you are already married, a postnuptial agreement may be used to protect your assets and your rights. Both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements must be properly drafted and executed. When such agreements are not properly drafted and executed, they are more likely to be successfully challenged in the event of a divorce.
