FAMILY LAW SERVICES

Chudnovsky Law provides or coordinates family law services for divorce, child custody and surrogacy. The firm's deep knowledge of US immigration laws and international treaties offers a special competence to international clients with complex international family law, custody and asset division issues.

DIVORCE SETTLEMENT

Our approach is generally to exhaust all settlement options and resolve issues amicably when possible while clearly communicating we are prepared to aggressively litigate our client's position. We work with experts to determine the facts from our client and potential witnesses. Careful preparation helps us negotiate from a position of strength to achieve optimal settlement results when possible.

DIVORCE MEDIATION

Chudnovsky Law represents clients participating in family law mediation. The firm can coordinate selecting a mediator, consult with the client in the background of mediation or act as client's representative during mediation.

DIVORCE LITIGATION

If settlement options are exhausted and litigation is required, we assemble a team suited to each client's unique needs. International clients who fall under more than one country's jurisdiction often require that we utilize and coordinate a corresponding attorney for the work in foreign countries.

marital agreements

The firm can provide or coordinate the drafting of prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements to define what happens in the event a marriage ends. Marital agreements must be drafted with great care to ensure they are enforceable in the event of a divorce. For international clients with assets and marital laws applying in more than one jurisdiction, the firm coordinates with a corresponding attorney for the work in any foreign countries.

SURROGACY

The firm provides or coordinates the following comprehensive legal and counseling services for those using assisted reproduction with a third party:

  • Counsel future parents, surrogates, egg donors, sperm donors and embryo donors on the state of the law with respect to the different reproduction methods available.
  • Draft contract(s) between parents, their surrogate, egg donor, sperm donor or embryo donor.
  • Collaborate with attorneys in other states if needed to ensure surrogacy agreements are in compliance with the laws in the surrogate’s state of residence and that client parental authority is legally established.
