Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult experiences you will ever have to endure. Unfortunately, many divorces are made even harder because the other person becomes impossible to work with when splitting up assets, and making decisions related to any children. In order to protect your own interests, you need to have an experienced divorce lawyer who can help represent you in court.
One of the first things that needs to be done when it comes to a divorce is figuring out a way to divide up all of the marital assets. This is often something that can be done without having to go in front of a judge. We will work with the other parties involved to attempt to come up with a fair division of assets that you will be happy with. The more we can figure out without going to court, the less time and money you will have to spend on your divorce. Of course, there will be some things that simply can’t be agreed upon, and in this case we will fight hard for your interests.
In addition to splitting up the assets in a divorce, it is also necessary to decide who will have custody of the children, and when. This is a remarkably painful and difficult thing to have to do for everyone involved. Our goal will be to help keep the children as safe and happy as possible, but getting you the custody arrangement that you feel is best for the kids. Here in New York both the mother and the father are presumed to have certain rights after a divorce, and we will work hard to ensure you get everything you are entitled to when it comes to your children.
