Do Not Let Your Spouse Take Advantage of Youspouse take advantage of you in divorce

During your Long Island Divorce, it is likely that your spouse and his or her attorney will attempt to intimidate you and make you believe you are not entitled to what is rightfully yours. Do not let this happen to you.

Your spouse may also be asking you for assets that you have earned during the course of the marriage. While he or she may be entitled to a certain share or portion, it is important not to let your spouse get carried away. In many cases, he or she may attempt to squeeze harder than necessary and receive additional sums that they are not entitled to.

As soon as you make the decision to divorce, or, as soon as you get served with papers from your spouse, it is time to find an experienced Long Island Divorce Attorney. Having an experienced Divorce Attorney advocating for you can make all the difference when resolving your divorce. We have worked with countless clients to make sure that they are not getting “taken to the cleaners” or “raked over the coals.” This is especially important to protect your future. Without a fair settlement between you and your spouse, it will be incredibly challenging to move forward with your post-divorce life.

At our firm, we relish the opportunity to zealously protect your rights and assets and ensure you are not taken advantage of. We work tirelessly to make sure that you receive what you are rightfully entitled to and don’t pay a penny more than you need to.

 

Your Marriage is a Partnership, Be Sure You’re Fairly Compensated

Without your contributions to your marriage, your spouse would not have been able to accomplish all that he or she has been able to during the course of your marriage. You have been a vital part of his or her endeavors. Those contributions must be recognized when negotiating your Long Island Divorce.

It is important to contact an experienced Long Island Divorce Attorney as early as possible. During your free consultation, we can discuss the variety of ways that you have contributed to the marriage, and what those contributions mean in the context of your Long Island Divorce.

Protect Your Future

It is important to keep in mind your long-term goals while going through your Long Island Divorce. Eventually, you may wish to relocate, buy a new home, start a new job, remarry, retire or go on that dream vacation you’ve been putting off. All of these are exciting events that you should have the resources to do in your post-divorce life.

When negotiating and settling your Divorce, it is important to have an experienced Divorce Attorney represent your interests. Having the right person advocating for you can help to ensure that you have the freedom and resources to live a full and happy post-divorce life.

Mr. Hornberger was so helpful to me in a recent consultation. He gave me his time generously, listened patiently, offered clear counsel, and said I didn't actually need further legal services in a particular matter, which I really appreciated.

The team at Hornberger Verbitsky made me feel at ease after I retained them after a 3 year contested divorce process. I... like their approach with how they educate you on ways to get the best outcome in your divorce. Mr. Hornberger made me feel heard and was compassionate to my case while also being aggressive in the courtroom to help me get the most positive outcome. He prevented my case from having to go to trial and he closed the deal in my long drawn out emotional divorce. I was happy that I retained him and would recommend him to anyone that is going through a high conflict divorce.read more

Despite a pandemic going on the office still worked diligently to get my papers filed and my divorce complete in a timely manner. Highly recommend!read more

Hornberger law was the best choice I made when I needed to go to family court with my ex for custody of my children.... They were there at any time when I neeeded them. Going through a custody battle can be a huge emotional rollercoaster and very painful. They helped me through it and made it less painful and heartbreaking. And I got the outcome plus more than I expectedread more

I went to see Rob for a modification for my child custody agreement to relocate, I can honestly say that working with... Rob and Christine has been the best experience. I cannot recommend them enough I only wish I had seen them sooner. They are prompt with communication, and they are honest which I appreciate so much. They do not give you fake promises and they do their best to fight for what you want which they do amazingly well! You can tell they are passionate about what they do and care about their clients. A very important aspect of lawyer client relationship for me is an open line of communication, the anxiety of the unknown always gets the best of us. The fact they were always available whether it be phone call or email to answer any question was extremely comforting and exactly what I needed. I am not well versed with laws and regulation so knowing I had Rob and his partners there when I was unsure or conflicted was extremely needed and greatly appreciated.When it comes to family court it's never easy but having Rob and his partner by my side I felt extremely comfortable and he helped me have realistic expectations. Please TRUST HIM!! If you're looking for a lawyer (at least for my end from child custody/Family Court) don't look any further you will not be disappointed. I hope to never have to use them again but in the event I have to, they are going to be my forever first call.read more

I am a paralegal in an unrelated field of law. I phoned Hornberger Verbitsky, P.C. today intending to refer a client... to their office. Instead (and despite that we are the midst of the present crisis), Mr. Hornberger himself graciously accommodated my questions over the telephone, and was generous with his time and adroit in his response, saving our client a small fortune in unnecessary legal fees. I have not had any similar experience, in which counsel was so generous with his expertise, in 22+ years of interacting with prominent, local attorneys, and the client is overjoyed. Based on this experience, I would now whole -heartedly recommend this firm as trusted professionals to any client requiring a firm expert in family law and related legal issues.read more

Going through a divorce was very challenging and emotional. Searching for an attorney can be challenging as well when... you consider everything that is at stake. The choice I made to work with Rob Hornberger was surely the best choice available. His professionalism, expertise, and understanding made him and the entire team perfectly suited to achieve the outcomes I desired. Rob was always available to answer my questions and give me advice and legal considerations that affected my situation. The support I received from his staff was exemplary as well. The staff was courteous, kind, and also very professional. Thank you so much Rob and team for a worry free experience.read more

Being in family court especially when your children are on the line is extremely emotional and stressful but working... with Robert and Christine put me at ease and made the process as pleasant as a situation like that can be. I have a now 3 year old daughter (who is the most important person in my life) and I've been working with them for over two years since my daughter was 7 months old, the case has been up and down and through it all Rob and Christine have never given up. My original case was due to a neglect charge. Cps is not easy to work with, but Rob and Christine were vigilant and I ended up getting my daughter back within 8 months and did not have to plead guilty to the neglect. Currently I am in family court to figure out a custody agreement. They are professional, empathetic, and patient. They have always explained everything thoroughly, informed me of all my options and advised me of what my best option would be. They always respond quickly when I contact them with questions or concerns and most importantly they fight for me in court and don't give up even when things get rough. Before hiring Rob and Christine I met with other attorneys who did not make me feel confident or comfortable at all about my case, so I am very grateful to have found Rob and Christine and to be represented by such great attorneys. I highly recommend them for any family court matters and will definitely continue to use them in the future if needed.read more
