New York City Divorce Attorney
Tension in the home is very difficult for families to experience, and at times they may decide a divorce is the best option. If you are considering filing for divorce in NYC, we encourage you to contact our office to discuss the details before you take the step to file. What you do prior to filing divorce could impact a court decision, such as moving out of the family home, moving assets or other similar actions. There are many cases that reach resolution through negotiating a settlement with the opposing attorney, which allow you to avoid the stress of a trial. Mediation is one of these methods and can be used to help reach more equal compromises for the family, especially when the custody of children is involved.
In some cases, reaching an agreement is not possible. If you and your former partner cannot come to a compromise, and there are complex financial matters to resolve, or issues regarding child custody or other critical point that remain in contention, you want to ensure that you have the highest quality counsel presenting your case to the court.
Whether you are seeking a simple divorce, and you and your former partner agree on the crucial issues, or you expect to have every detail vigorously challenged, we are prepared to protect your rights and interests throughout the process. With extensive experience in both contentious divorces and
uncontested divorces, you can trust that our firm is equipped to walk you through the process, regardless of the circumstances. Our professional resources are highly respected in their fields, including forensic accountants, child experts and others.
Our firm also represents New York City residents in all other matters related to family law including:
