complications throughout each step of the case. As your
divorce lawyers, we are here to assist you with the following family law concerns:
Child Custody & Visitation
One of the most important - and contested - aspects of a divorce is that
of child custody. The primary consideration is what is in the best interest
of the child. It is important to obtain an aggressive lawyer to ensure
that your rights are protected.
Determining child support payments in New York is an important aspect
of any divorce case involving children. Support is typically paid by the
non-custodial parent and given to the parent with child custody. According
to New York law, both parents should have the responsibility to financially
support their children.
One of the most difficult family law issues is when a couple makes the
decision to dissolve the marriage. The termination of a marriage is called
a divorce, and is a legal process that requires various issues to be discussed
to settle division of property, custody, and post-divorce maintenance.
The state of New York handles the issue of property division through equitable
distribution. This does not mean that all assets and debts are distributed
equally; rather, distribution is done in an equitable manner. An attorney
from our firm can help you obtain that which you rightfully deserve.
Modification of Court Orders
We understand that in life, there are constant changes that will require
a modification of child support, spousal support, child custody, or visitation
rights. Our firm can help you obtain a modification of existing divorce
Spousal Support / Maintenance
In many situations, one spouse is the primary financial provider of a
marriage. When a divorce takes place, the less-monied individual may be
entitled to receive financial support to help them get on their feet.
These can be temporary or permanent.
