New York Divorce Lawyer:
An uncontested divorce is when a married couple wishes to end their marriage amicably (meaning both agree on all financial and family matters, such as child custody and support, division of marital property or spousal support). When there are children involved in a divorce case, child custody, support and visitation must be resolved before a judge will sign the Judgement of Divorce. Our lawyers will advise our clients to take an inventory of all their (i) assets and liabilities owned jointly and independently and (ii) legal and tax information.
Uncontested Divorce litigation in New York State:
When married couples cannot be together, they must get a Judgement of Divorce to terminate their marriages. In a contested divorce or litigation, your marital issues are submitted to a family court to resolve them. In an uncontested divorce, the parties agree to the divorce and all the issues related to the marriage. If you cannot agree with your spouse, our experienced attorneys will fight to ensure your interests are protected. We walk you through the divorce process and work with you to formulate the most effective strategy to achieve the outcome you want in court.
Modification of Divorce Judgement:
There are circumstances where an ex-spouse wants to change a prior agreement on custody, support, and spousal maintenance. We can help look into your situation and advise on your best course of action.
NYC Divorce Lawyer Property Division:
New York is an equitable distribution state which means an equitable distribution of marital assets and debts. In most instances, it does result in 50/50 distribution but not in all cases as the court has the power to determine what equitable means on a case by case basis.
Orders of Protection:
During the pendency of a divorce action, orders of protection (prohibiting a party from doing certain behaviors) may be requested to protest the safety of persons. If you feel that your safety is at issue, please call our office.
