Family Law / Domestic Relations / Matrimonial Law

Today’s complex court proceedings and continually changing requirements in Domestic Relations demand advanced legal knowledge and procedures.

Several of CMB&K’s attorneys and paralegals routinely assist clients in domestic matters such as:

  • Divorces
  • Separation Agreements
  • Custody / Visitation Proceedings
  • Child/Spousal Support Proceedings
  • Family Offense Petitions / Orders of Protection
  • Adoptions

Experience: Among our team are Gerald J. Ducharme who has been practicing since 1980 and Lawrence D. Hasseler who has been practicing since 1974. Both have concentrated experience and expertise in these areas of law.

Availablitity:We regularly appear in Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence, and Franklin County Supreme Courts and Family Courts. We also handle appeals to the Appellate Division in the Third and Fourth Departments.
