Areas of Law Description
- Family Law
Families often face some of their greatest stress during a divorce. There are a range of issues that can arise within a family relationship that have legal ramifications. In many unfortunate cases, one or more parties involved in any legal proceedings is actively engaged in making things as difficult as possible, which can slow down the process and cause even more problems.
If you are considering divorce, it is important to select a divorce lawyer that is experienced in all divorce case. Whether you need an uncontested divorce, no-fault divorce or are facing litigation in a contested divorce, it is crucial that you have the legal counsel that will address all the issues and protect your interests throughout the process.
- Child Support
One of the most important aspects of any divorce is the issue of child support. This issue can be one upon which the two parents do not agree and it may be necessary to get it resolved in court. With careful and effective negotiations from a divorce lawyer from our law firm, it may be possible to get a resolution without having to depend upon the intervention of the court.
- Child Custody
In any custody case, there are several options that could be chosen with regard to how the children's lives will be shared with their parents. These include legal custody and physical custody. Many parents choose to maintain two households and the custody of the children are shared on alternating weeks or other parenting schedule.
- Collaborative Divorce
Collaborative divorce is widely gaining popularity among couples who are seeking a legal means to end their marriage in the state of New York. Generally considered to be a non-combative approach to the dissolution of a marriage, the process of collaborative divorce hinges on the client-attorney relationship that is built between you and your legal representative.
Often married couples find themselves not wanting to get divorced, although they want to go in separate directions and lead different lives from each other. This is usually after being married for many years and there are often kids to think about in making such a serious, life-altering decision.
- Alimony and Maintenance
One of the more commonly contested issues in a divorce is the subject of maintenance. These payments are made by one spouse to another in a separation or divorce. After a marriage comes to an end, the spouse that has supported the family is often required to pay maintenance until the former spouse becomes financially independent.
In the state of New York, one of the most popular mediums for effective dispute resolution is that of mediation. This method is particularly utilized by couples who are looking to end their marriages outside of the courtroom, yet still need professional help to resolve some of the key aspects that must be decided before the divorce can be finalized.
Although every child has a biological mother and father, if the child is born out of wedlock, then they do not have a legal father. This can be extremely problematic for fathers who wish to maintain an active role in their child's life.
- Prenuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement, if drafted properly, can protect each of the spouse's rights and avoid much confusion and tension. If you are thinking about entering a prenuptial agreement or your intended spouse has informed you that they are having a prenuptial agreement prepared, you need an experienced prenuptial agreement attorney who can ensure that your rights and wishes are well represented.
The decision to divorce is often one of the most difficult and emotionally stressful decisions a couple can face. When children are involved it can be even more complicated and emotionally charged. Although the interests of the child are of paramount importance when it comes to child custody and visitation, as a parent you have certain rights.
