Our divorce practice includes representation in all family contested matters for a resolution that meets our client’s needs. We represent clients in post-divorce modification actions as well as contempt and other enforcement actions, and post-judgment motions and appeals.
We help clients obtain temporary and permanent protective orders when they are experiencing threats of bodily harm from or stalking by a family member. We also defend clients who may be the victims of false accusations of domestic violence. Kresky Law is one of the few firms that has had multi-day domestic violence trials and achieved a directed verdict defending a client wrongly accused of domestic violence.
Paternity, Legitimation And Grandparent Rights
If parents are unmarried when a child is born and a dispute arises, court action is sometimes needed to establish paternity or legitimacy. Grandparents may be able to assert a legal right to parenting time or even custody under certain circumstances. Kresky Law represents parents, putative fathers, grandparents, and other interested parties in these critical areas.
Pre And Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements have become increasingly important in high net worth families. Kresky Law is skilled and experienced in drafting prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that encourage marriage, and if divorce or death occurs, they will stand up in court. Kresky Law also enforces and challenges such agreements in divorce litigation.
