The Bousquet Holstein Matrimonial and Family Law Practice Area seeks to distinguish itself by seeking solutions that best meet the needs of our clients. Whether those needs are best met through Prenuptial Agreements, Post-Nuptial Agreements, negotiations under traditional legal concepts, the use of Collaborative Law, or traditional trial methods, we tailor our process and seek creative solutions to each person’s individual needs.
During this emotionally charged time, areas outside the matrimonial law field often require simultaneous resolution. Our matrimonial team has expertise and experience in matters involving valuation and tracing of assets, valuation of closely held business, executive compensation and benefit plans, tax planning and complex support arrangements. The firm’s breadth of experience and resources in areas including employee benefits, trust and estates, tax planning and advocacy, business transactions, bankruptcy, and other substantive areas allow us to provide a comprehensive set of options to our matrimonial clients.
In a divorce setting, these issues must often be determined against the back drop of significant custody, visitation and support issues. Our child-centric approach insures that each solution is handled with compassion. Each solution is as unique as the individuals involved.
During our initial meeting we work together with our clients to assess the best method for resolving matrimonial difficulties. Oftentimes negotiation is better for everyone, but sometimes it is not. We are prepared to negotiate an agreement using traditional attorney driven negotiations, or to enter into a contract to work collaboratively with other trained collaborative counsel. When necessary, we are prepared to use the Court system to resolve disputes, especially when the parties have been polarized by the split in their relationship in a way that may require the help of the Courts, or where urgent circumstances do not allow for negotiated resolutions of certain issues.
In all cases we obtain a fair resolution for both parties and allow all those affected to maintain their dignity.
