One of the hardest things to do when obtaining a divorce is to divide the marital assets. We will protect your interests and your rights. In New York, property that is joint will be divided up in a way that is fair to both parties. When making decisions about property, the court considers the length of the marriage, the amount of property, and the circumstances of both parties. Future earnings will be considered. If you have been married for a significant amount of time, you probably have accumulated lots of property. In addition to property, the court will divide your debts as well. Mortgage loans, credit card debt, and student loans can be divided between spouses. We can help make sure that you are getting what you deserve, and you are not paying for more than is necessary.

If an annulment is granted, it will be as if the annulment never happened.
