How We Help You Move Forward

Collaborative Divorce

We represent you as your attorney. Your spouse has his/her own attorney. Both of you agree not to litigate. As your attorney, our role is to help you get clear on what’s really important to you and be heard—possibly in a way you weren’t heard in your marriage. The goal of collaborative divorce is for both attorneys to move you and your spouse together instead of pulling you apart. A team of professionals (from divorce coaches to financial experts) assist in the process to sort out the emotional, legal and financial matters.

Mediation

As a mediator we work as a neutral third-party, to help you both come to an understanding about the issues that need to be resolved in order to have a durable divorce agreement. As your mediator, we facilitate your discussions but do not give legal advice or make decisions for you. However, we may provide legal information that may help you to resolve your issues. During the process you may each consult with your own attorneys to help you better advocate for yourself during the mediation process and review the final agreement on your behalf.

New York City Pre-Divorce Guidance

Choosing to move forward with a divorce is a complicated choice, and you don’t have to make it alone. Vacca Family Law Group is here to help. With Pre-Divorce Guidance, we give you a divorce roadmap, layout your best move forward, and show you how to minimize your risks when pursuing divorce. Ready to move forward?
 
 

Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements are signed prior to the marriage. Couples who are planning to marry often enter into prenuptial agreements that clarify the financial rights and obligations of each spouse in the event of a divorce. Couples can also use prenuptial agreements to determine what rights a spouse will have in the event of the other's death. The most common reasons that people seek to sign prenuptial agreements include protecting assets that they had prior to the marriage.
