New York Divorce Issues

We handle cases throughout the area and help clients obtain a modification of court orders. Divorce is a difficult issue that includes emotional 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.

Child Support
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.

Equitable Distribution
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 court orders.

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.
