Each month, our attorneys are selective on how many cases we take. We limit our caseload so we can give as much attention as possible to each and every client we accept. We prefer working with less clients, in order to get better results for all of our clients. Unlike many other attorneys, we don’t assign paralegals and non-attorneys to handle the bulk of our work.

Many spouses look at divorce as a contentious issue. They immediately act like they are at war. Contrary to popular belief, divorce mediation can work. While many divorces in NY are contested; it’s possible to avoid legal fees with an uncontested divorce in New York. Mediation is a great way to avoid emotional and financial hurdles, that arise in divorce. Lawyers will tell you that it’s always a good idea – to keep a divorce drama free. If you engage in divorce mediation, you can get legally divorced – with a fraction of the cost. We highly recommend doing mediation, instead of going to war – since it’s emotionally and financially better. Our lawyers are trained to handle voluntary, and court-mandated, mediations. Our job as your advocate, is to help you take advantage of this chance to avoid litigation, and to work out your issues in a peaceful manner. We can help you engage in divorce mediation, before the the court orders mediation to begin – and before it becomes contentious. Our family lawyers help clients make the most of their mediation. We help clients get an out-of-court settlement to help avoid future litigation. We can do this before the situation escalates.
Are some divorce cases harder than others?
No divorce is final, until outstanding issues like assets, debt, spousal support, alimony, etc, are handled. In the event you, and your spouse, don’t agree on a settlement for these issues – you’ll have to resolve these matters. Sometimes, couples are unable to agree on these issues – outside of court, and thus it becomes a contested divorce. If these aren’t resolved, a judge will decide on them for you. These are typically the tougher cases most people think about, when thinking about divorce. The good thing is, we can help you with these tough cases. Our family law attorneys are proficient, and competent, in handling all types of cases – even contested divorces. We have many trial lawyers who work with us – and our firm has a strong reputation in courts. We firmly believe that success, in the legal arena – comes from being both aggressive, and passive. Fire and ice. Our contested divorce lawyers know when to be aggressive, fiery, and fierce – and in addition, know when to back off. No case is too hard – we use the right strategy, at the right time – in order to get you results. If the opposing party isn’t being cooperative, we aren’t afraid of taking a tough stance, and being aggressive. Our attorneys in NYC have the skills, experience, dedication, and enthusiasm necessary to protect your rights inside – and outside – the legal arena.

What is an uncontested divorce
As divorce lawyers, we uniquely understand what is a uncontested divorce. Generally, this type of divorce is one, in which both parties are in agreement. Our lawyers can help couples find settlement terms, without going to trial, and result in a “uncontested,” ending. In simple terms, it means the spouses reached an agreement without ever going to court/having a judge resolve the issues. These types of divorces proceed much faster through the court system, and are less expensive. It allows spouses to move on with their lives, a lot quicker.
Who receives custody of the children when a divorce happens?
This is a question for the parents. Custody is normally divided into two components: physical and legal. Physical custody in divorces refers to where the children live. Legal custody refers to who will make important decisions for the child, i.e. health, education, etc. Both of these custodies can be either joint or sole. In New York, there are laws to calculate child support payments. The payment amount is normally based on each parent’s income, which gets taken into account in a mathematical formula. If there is a judge presiding over your divorce proceedings, the judge has the ultimate authority on child support decisions. The judge can deviate from guidelines as they desire.
Do you have to pay alimony in a divorce case?
Alimony can be ordered by a judge under certain circumstances. If a spouse is going to face hardships without financial support, spousal support will be considered by the judge, and probably requested by the spouse as well. The deciding factor for spousal support in NYC/Long Island is whether or not your spouse will be able to maintain her/himself, at his/her customary standard of living. In other word, the law makes it clear that a husband/wife, shouldn’t be forced to live at a level below what was enjoyed during the marriage.

How are high net worth divorce cases different?
Our family law attorneys understand the importance of a prenuptial, or postnuptial, agreement. This agreement is a contract, that we can help negotiate, between the various parties – in order to prevent future litigation, and financial exposure from either one party, or another. When you hire our matrimonial attorneys to help, you are able to lower the chances of future financial, or emotional, problems – due to prior planning.
