When a divorce is filed that involves minor children, a number of issues will need to be addressed.

Divorce Lawyers for Child Support

Another aspect of divorces that involve children is the element of child support. Whether you are the full time parent or the party that’s agreeing to pay child support, there are a number of integers and important issues that play a strong role.

Child Visitation

During divorces, child custody battles commonly occur. While some couples are able to amicably resolve their differences or indifferences out of court, many times intervention is required to reach a compromise or resolution. In circumstances where custody has already been won, our divorce attorneys have helped successfully increase child visitation rights for our clients or have helped them win back partial or full custody. During ongoing proceedings where custody is being argued for, we have helped our clients gain either full or partial custody. Call (617) 523-3500 today.


In some cases of divorce, the divorcee instigating the action may seek alimony to continue the lifestyle that they have become accustomed to during their marriage. This is especially prevalent in affluent marriages, where a prenuptial contract was not in place, and also is prevalent even in marriages where such contracts were in place prior to matrimony. As an experienced law firm of divorce lawyers, Eisenstadt, Krippendorf & Galvin, LLP specializes in both negotiation of alimony payments to the benefit of our clients and in helping to prevent an alimony agreement against our client’s benefit. Call (617) 523-3500 today.

Paternity Divorce Attorneys

In some divorce cases, the topic of questionable paternity of any children may arise pertaining to child support related issues. In these occurrences, retaining the right divorce attorney is critical in either proving or disproving paternity to your benefit while protecting your individual rights.

Fortunately, many issues surrounding paternity can be easily resolved using the modernized DNA testing methods of the present day to present efficacious evidence to the court, which can eliminate any questions of paternity to your benefit. Call (617) 523-3500 today.

Prenuptial Agreements

It is not uncommon for marriages –#8211; in particular those of affluent couples –#8211; to be paired with a contract called a prenuptial agreement. These contracts are usually fairly cut and dry and determine a pre-agreed upon arrangement between both parties should the marriage fail and result in dissolution. However, prenuptial agreements are contestable and are contested a lot more often than you might think. If you find yourself facing a contested prenuptial agreement—you will want a progressive divorce lawyer representing your rights and helping to maintain the key elements of the contract that was set forth and agreed upon prior to your union being ratified.

Property & Division of Debt

Client Testimonials
I thought I was going to lose everything I had until that first court hearing in probate court. The judge immediately agreed with Ed’s arguments and the next week, Joe had the restraining order dismissed. I was seeing my kids again inside two weeks and could not have been any more pleased with their response. They made a very bad situation much easier to deal with. K.B.

The team at EKG recently represented us in a case and the entire process from beginning to end was seamless thanks to the team’s knowledge, professionalism, and proactivity. All my family’s questions and concerns were thoroughly answered by the partners and they were always to discuss things in person or via phone. It’s a rarity to find such a hands on and thoughtful team, and not surprisingly we had a successful outcome in our case. Nicholas G.

Our family would like to offer our experience with Attorney Edward Krippendorf, his associates and office staff. We would like to point out that we have no relationship to him or had any knowledge of this attorney prior to our need for one. My review will seem biased because “He is just that good” and we wanted to qualify this review.That being said we faced a serious crisis where an attorney was needed and Mr. Krippendorf fell in to our lap so to say.
