Beyond litigation, Anthony Buono knows how to work with clients to try to find a negotiated resolution to a divorce. He appreciates and understands that not everyone can afford or wants to litigate, and that some matters are better resolved through negotiation rather than litigation. This is especially true in matters where there are children involved and the parties must continue to cooperate and work together for the best interests of their children.

Issues of child custody and visitation are among the most important, and sometimes the most difficult, in a divorce. The legal standard for resolving these is the best interest of the child or children. Anthony Buono helps his clients work out custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interest of their child or children while protecting their rights as a parent.

A good divorce attorney also must understand real estate law and real estate finance in order to effectively represent a client who owns a home. Anthony Buono uses his comprehensive knowledge of real estate law to help matrimonial clients. This may be as simple as selling a marital residence or as complex as a mortgage modification with an assumption of debt. Many different financing options, such as assumptions, consolidations, as well as modification and extensions of a mortgage, allow for creative solutions to the financial problems and strain that often accompany a divorce. These are often more complex than simply refinancing, but they have the potential to save a client thousands of dollars, or even save a client’s home.
