Alimony:
Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Peter G. Loewenstein help you establish fair and equitable spousal support so you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.

Child custody and visitation:
For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Divorce attorneys advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home.

Child support:
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. At The Law Offices of Peter G. Loewenstein, the attorneys help ensure your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement:
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Divorce:
Throughout your divorce, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Peter G. Loewenstein stand by you. They accompany you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you - including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Mediation:
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. The skilled negotiators at The Law Offices of Peter G. Loewenstein can help you obtain the most favorable divorce settlement using mediation.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements:
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. The lawyers at The Law Offices of Peter G. Loewenstein expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
