Divorce in Long Island

The outcome of a divorce in Long Island can affect a family in multiple ways. Because it affects so many pertinent issues: child custody, spousal support, property division, and child support - the result will affect you and your children emotionally and financially for years to come. This is why I consider it of the utmost importance to properly represent my clients' interests in their Long Island divorce cases.

Depending on the situation, a Long Island divorce may be contested or uncontested. A contested divorce is one that must be resolved with the help of the court. The spouses cannot agree upon the terms of their divorce agreement and therefore must have them ruled upon by a family law judge. In an uncontested divorce, both spouses will reach their own agreement - outside of the courtroom - regarding every issue related to the legal end of their marriage.

A divorce is the end of a marriage but can also be a new beginning. No matter how you look at it, there are bound to be some complexities or issues that will need to be resolved, and whether you and your spouse are able to handle these inside or outside of court may have a significant impact on the final terms of your divorce and therefore your family's future. This is why I recommend working with a Long Island divorce attorney such as myself as early in the process as possible.
