Whether you are seriously dating, recently engaged, married or are just now finding the time to think about it, seeking counsel about a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is a smart decision.

Ms. Silbert has the experience and knowledge necessary to create, review or help you and your partner mediate a pre- or postnuptial agreement.
Divorce is a difficult process for any couple, but for same-sex couples the process can be especially complex. Many partnerships predate the right to marry and other protections under the law. Since relevant case law and procedures are still evolving, same-gender couples who wish to divorce face more uncertainty in the courts. For this reason, many couples prefer to settle outside of court on their own terms.
Ms. Silbert is sensitive to the challenges facing same-sex couples in a legal world grounded in cultural, financial and lifestyle assumptions based on traditional opposite-sex marriages and is committed to creating highly personalized guidance that is fair, legally sound, and truly reflective of your relationship and divorce goals.

When both spouses want a divorce and agree to all relevant terms, moving forward with an uncontested divorce is a legally sound and wise decision. Unlike a contested divorce, where a court or adversarial lawyers make decisions, an uncontested or no-fault divorce enables couples to choose their own terms in a negotiated or mediated settlement. Couples who agree to an uncontested divorce never have to go to court.
Ms. Silbert offers experienced counsel at any stage in the uncontested divorce process. Whether you’re seeking an attorney to review your negotiated settlement or are just beginning the process, Ms. Silbert will ensure the next steps are handled efficiently and effectively.
For many divorcing couples, how assets and finances will be divided is an issue of deep concern. Will I be able to maintain my lifestyle? Who keeps the family home? What if my spouse hasn’t worked outside of the home? What is marital property? Whatever your questions or fears, Ailie L. Silbert Family Law and Mediation will empower you with solid legal insight and solutions that are fair, reasonable and sustainable.
