The Schenectady County family lawyers at The Colwell Law Group, LLC know that of all areas of civil law, family law is often the most emotional and that the outcome of a family law case often has significant long-term effects. We know that when you are dealing with a family law matter, you want an advocate on your side who is not only competent and experienced but compassionate and relatable, too. As lawyers with families ourselves, we know how sensitive your family law matter is, and promise to work hard for you, work in your best interests, and always protect your confidentiality.

Our Schenectady County Family Law Practice Areas

We have worked exclusively in family law, and are highly skilled in all family law matters. If you have an issue that needs to be resolved in family court or via the help of a competent Schenectady County family law attorney, we are what you are looking for. Our family law practice areas include–

  • Divorce. We handle all issues in a divorce, including child support, child custody, divisions of pensions and retirement accounts, property distribution, separation agreement, spousal maintenance orders, and temporary relief. We also have helped clients in obtaining divorce modifications and prenuptial agreements.
  • Child custody. Child custody is one of the most sensitive areas of family law. Our family law attorneys can represent you when you have questions or are engaged in a legal dispute regarding physical or legal custody, paternity, fathers’ rights, grandparents’ rights, interstate custody issues, and parental relocation.
  • Family law. In addition to divorce and child custody matters, we can also help you with obtaining a domestic violence protection order, navigating child abuse or neglect proceedings, or enforcing a court order.

If you have a family law matter that you need to resolve that you do not see listed above, please contact our law firm today. We offer comprehensive counsel for all family law matters.


Work with a Law Firm You Can Trust

For the average person, there is nothing that is more important than the relationship that they maintain with their family and their personal situation. We understand how delicate family matters are, and how a family law matter that is not resolved in your favor could have serious consequences for your future. Consider a situation in which your failure to seek competent legal representation results in the denial of visitation with your child, or a court order forcing you to give up your home and pay spousal maintenance – we want to make sure that the scales are never tipped against you based on your lack of skilled legal counsel alone. When you hire our law firm, we do everything possible to resolve your family matter quickly, amicably, and in your best interests.
