Deciding to divorce or separate is never an easy decision to make and should only be made after a great deal of thought and consideration. If you and your spouse ultimately decide to proceed with the divorce process, it is important to have an experienced divorce lawyer working on your behalf to ensure your rights and best interests are protected. There is a great deal of paperwork that must be prepared and filed, and I can ensure that all of your legal documents are filled out correctly and filed with the appropriate courts. While some forms are mandatory for a New York divorce, there are various other forms that can be optional, depending on the couple. Such forms include:

  • Affidavit in support of motion for contempt
  • Contempt of court
  • Affirmation of counsel regarding forensic reports
  • Parenting plan
  • Order to show cause for temporary relief

If you are not filing for divorce, but rather need help resolving another family law issue, I can help to ensure the legal process goes as smoothly as possible. Almost all legal matters, and certainly ones involving family law, can be time sensitive and can have consequences if the paperwork is not filed properly or on time. This is one of the many reasons it is important that you retain professional legal counsel when filing for divorce or dealing with a different family law issue.

I know that it is important to you to do everything possible to avoid a long, tedious and sometimes traumatic process. Family law proceedings are often very emotional and it is easy for people to lose sight of their goals and priorities when attempting to negotiate without a skilled attorney. That is why my team and I are here to give you the legal advice and assistance that you need throughout the process. No matter what your situation involves, an experienced Long Island family lawyer could be able to help you to handle the legal issue as smoothly and promptly as possible.

Jay is friendly and tells it like it is. I felt comfortable immediately with him. Although he was a little pricier then some other attorneys he didn’t mislead me like they had. I recommend him and would use him again if needed.

I couldn’t be happier with Jay’s work on my case. Throughout the process he was always available to answer questions, usually returning my calls or emails within a few minutes and always by the end of the day. He was always on time and prepared when we appeared in court. I have had experiences with other attorneys where they promised the moon and stars in the initial consultation and then pass you off to a paralegal never to be seen or heard from again. This was not the case with Jay Raxenburg, he treated me with the same level of attention and professionalism from the first meeting all the way to the resolution of my case and he followed through on everything he said he would do. Jay exceeded my expectations and I would recommend him to any of my friends or family without hesitation.

What else can I say about Jay Raxenberg other than he’s the man! Jay has worked extremely hard on my case for the last year and a half to make sure things work in my favor. It was a long process that I thought would never end. At one point I told Jay I was over everything. I was willing to settle for just about anything to get it over with. His response was “you will have to fire me and hire a new attorney. I will not settle until I’m sure it’s the right time!” Thank God I took his advise. He worked hard and he fought hard to get me what I deserved. He truly cares about his clients and wants the best for them, unlike some other attorneys out there. I’m very happy that I chose Jay for my situation. He’s a great human being. Thanks a lot jay for all you have done. You rock!

The best decision I ever made was hiring Attorney Jay Raxenberg for my divorce and custody litigation. At the time I retained Jay I was in a vulnerable state both emotionally and financially. He was compassionate and very confident based on my circumstances that he would obtain for me the relief I was pursuing and indeed he did deliver I not only received custody, child support and maintenance but the Court ordered my spouse to pay all of my counsel fees. He always returned my telephone calls the very same day and was always accommodating to meet with me at his office when it suited my hectic schedule even if it was on a weekend. He was aggressive in the Courtroom when he needed to be while always being a professional in every way. Thanks too Jay I can smile again and enjoy life.!!

I am so proud to have Jay as respresentation. I have so much respect for Jay. He keeps it simple and gets the job done, consistently maintains professionalism, and has proven to be fair and proactive throughout my case. Although the other party did not express the same level of cooperation and professional courtesy, Jay's commitment never faltered. I admire and appreciate his dedication both to his field and to my case, and he has not steered me wrong once.
