Contested Divorce

As you know, divorce is complicated, and just as spouses frequently do not agree on issues while they are married, they often do not agree on those same issues when they get divorced. When couples cannot agree on the terms of their divorce, it is known as a contested divorce. Unfortunately, in many cases, contested divorces are long, emotional, and expensive, which is why you need an experienced Suffolk County divorce attorney who can fight for your rights through every step of the process.

Uncontested Divorce

Fortunately, there are times where divorces go uncontested, which means that spouses are capable of working out their divorce-related issues together. This will avoid the litigation process, and is oftentimes quicker, more civil, and an overall easier experience for all parties involved. That being said, to ensure everything goes smoothly, you should retain the services of an experienced Suffolk County divorce attorney.

Divorce Process

The divorce process is, at times, a lengthy, document-heavy one. For this very reason, all divorcing spouses need the assistance of an attorney who has extensive experience guiding individuals through every step of the divorce process. Our Suffolk County divorce attorney is ready to work for you.

Spousal Maintenance

Alimony, formally referred to as spousal maintenance in New York, is oftentimes a deeply contested issue in divorce, as frequently, one spouse feels entitled to more spousal support than the other spouse is willing to give. Alimony is essentially a temporary form of payment designed to keep the dependent spouse financially stable, and, eventually, become financially independent. At this point, the supporting spouse can request termination of alimony.

Division of Assets

Property distribution is among the most significant divorce-related issues. Nobody wants to consider losing their home, car, or other assets of that nature, however, all marital assets will be subjected to the equitable distribution in contested divorces in New York, which is why with so much at stake, you cannot afford to go on without retaining the services of an experienced Suffolk County divorce attorney.

Modifications

As time goes on, in the months or years following a divorce, our lives change. This is why, in many cases, as long as someone can prove that there has been a significant and continuing change of circumstances, thereby making it so the terms reached in their initial divorce agreement no longer reflect their current situation, Long Island courts will grant that person a modification. Read More.

Legal Separation

Legal separation allows married spouses to alter the relationship with their spouse without legally terminating the marriage. Many people choose legal separation because it better suits their religious or personal beliefs. In other cases, spouses will choose legal separation to preserve certain financial benefits afforded in marriage. No matter your circumstances, our firm is here to help.

Divorce With a Business

Business owner divorce is notoriously complex, even in cases where one spouse solely operates and runs a business. This is because oftentimes, these businesses can still be considered marital property, so one spouse who solely operates a business may find him or herself fighting to retain control of that business. Our firm has effectively handled countless business owner divorces through the years, and we know we have what it takes to do the same for you.

High Net Worth Divorce

If you and your spouse have a combined net worth of over $1 million, you are in what is known as a high net worth divorce. These divorces are oftentimes far more complex than standard divorces because though they traditionally involve all the issues considered in standard divorces, such as child custody, spousal support, and more, high net worth spouses oftentimes have far more assets at stake, as well are more complex assets, such as business interests, stock options, and more. This is why you need an experienced Suffolk County divorce attorney on your side.

Military Divorce

Military divorces are also oftentimes more complicated than civilian divorces. This is, in large part, due to the nature of being a member of the U.S. military or the spouse of one. Because U.S. service members are often away serving our country, the federal government provides various considerations and augmentations of the laws that govern them at home.

Prenuptial Agreement

Though marriage is exciting, it is always important that you prepare for the worst. Though there used to be a stigma attached to prenuptial agreements, in today’s day and age, this is no longer the case. Prenuptial agreements are valuable documents that future spouses can craft before marriage that essentially outline what will happen with marital property acquired before the marriage, should they ever get divorced. Our firm can help you draft a prenuptial agreement that best suits you and your future spouse’s needs.
