sneiderman-divorce-icon-redLisa has successfully represented husbands in many divorce, dissolution, collaborative divorce, and legal separation proceedings. As a female divorce attorney, she brings a different perspective and energy to negotiations and can often anticipate what a wife is likely to want and/or need. Lisa combines her experience as a woman, a mother, and a lawyer and puts it to work for you.

“I know what I can realistically ask of women, and that’s essential for a husband’s divorce attorney. It’s easier for me to ask the wives to fulfill certain obligations—like financial or child care contributions—because I am a working mother myself.

  • If you are the primary breadwinner, you’ll likely still contribute to the family through spousal and/or child support. Lisa’s goal in representing you is to ensure that the amount you are asked to pay is fair and that you have enough left to maintain a comfortable standard of living for yourself.
  • If you are not the primary provider of household income, you may be entitled to spousal and/or child support. Many divorcing husbands hesitate to seek spousal support, but Lisa encourages her clients to go after all the support they deserve.
  • No matter your role in your former household, if you have children, you have fathers’ rights. This includes time with your children (specified by a shared parenting agreement or standard visitation) and may involve child support as well.

Lisa will work with you to determine the best course of action (divorce, dissolution, collaborative divorce, or legal separation) and be your partner and advocate throughout the process. You’ll be well informed, have a voice in all decisions, and feel confident in the strong female divorce attorney representing your best interests. Contact her for your free initial consultation.
