Assistance With Complex Child Custody Disputes

Child custody remains one of the most hotly contested issues in divorce. Our attorneys help our clients understand their child custody and visitation rights so that they can make the best decisions for their children. Custody disputes are often intense and can sometimes impact children. We take the time to explain the various types of custody and what they mean for you and your family.

The New York courts have established specific guidelines that determine the amount of child support that is to be paid from one parent to the other. An attorney at our firm can help you understand the formula that is used and the types of numbers that are used in the formula, including the number of children and amount of income of each parent. We can also explain different factors that may influence how a final support determination is made.

Experienced Spousal Support And Property Division Representation

Many divorcing couples consider spousal support (often called spousal maintenance or alimony) as an issue to be resolved. Though spousal support is not warranted in every case, our firm can determine if seeking spousal maintenance is appropriate in your case, or if we need to mount a defense to the amount that your spouse is seeking.

New York courts divide marital property according to the laws of equitable distribution. This means that property and assets are divided equitably and fairly, instead of 50-50. Our firm can work to see that your rights are upheld and that you get the property and assets to which you are entitled. It is important to note that marital debts are also divided, and we can help you understand how these may be handled in your divorce.
