Perhaps the single most important aspect of any divorce is custody and visitation of the children. There are two types of custody, legal and physical. Legal custody relates to the decision making ability of the parent. Physical custody means that the child lives with that parent and the parent is responsible for sheltering and sustaining the child.

Sole custody means that one parent makes all the decisions for the child relating to health, education and religion and also has physical custody of the child. Joint custody means that both parents make decisions together and the child spends time in both households. It is also possible for one parent to have sole legal custody, but for parents to have joint physical custody through liberal rights of visitation.

New York courts tend to award joint custody in instances where both parents can work together and cooperate in order to make decisions that are in the best interests of the child. In situations where parents do not get along or harbor hostility towards each other, courts will more likely award sole custody to one parent. Statistically, sole custody is awarded to the mother in about 70% of cases, 20% of cases end up in a joint custody arrangement and in about 10% of cases, sole custody is awarded to the father.

Custody can be decided on by the parents or by the court. Even if parents come up with a custody arrangement, the courts can change it if they think it might not be in the child's best interests. Also, courts can change the custody arrangement at any time if they think it's in the best interests of the child.

Visitation is when the child spends time with the non-custodial parent. Visitation can be supervised and unsupervised. Parents can work together to come up with a viable parenting plan to make sure that they are involved in their child's lives, whether they are the custodial or the non-custodial parent.

Whether you are looking to obtain custody, amend a custody arrangement or figure out visitation, an experienced attorney can help you navigate this vital road.

Almost all divorces follow the same timeline. First, one spouse serves the other with a summons for a divorce. The summons can be accompanied with either a notice or a complaint. At this stage, the person who is served with these documents must decide whether they are going to contest the divorce. If they choose not to contest, the parties can agree to all the terms and obtain an uncontested divorce.

If your spouse chooses to contest the divorce, they will then retain an attorney and file an answer. At this point, the parties can begin negotiating a settlement, if one is possible. In addition, this may be the time to ask the court for financial help if your spouse has left you without the means to support yourself or your children. This request for help while the divorce is pending, is called pendente lite or interim relief. For stay-at-home moms, this can be a powerful tool that allows them to get out of a bad situation with the aid of the courts.

If no settlement is reached, the divorce moves into the next stage, called the discovery stage, where both parties exchange information. This is the stage where both of you must submit information to the court regarding your net worth and also the stage where you can ask your spouse questions that they must reply to in writing, called interrogatories. At this time you can request copies of any documents you think will help you to establish your case and also conduct depositions where you we call your spouse in to answer any questions we may have.

The good news is that by the time the discovery stage is over, most divorces will settle. However, if at the end of this stage a settlement is not reached, the divorce moves into the trial stage. During this stage, we take all the evidence we have collected up until this point, call any witnesses we may have and make our case to the judge as to why you are entitled to the relief you seek.

Contested divorces are lengthy and expensive. For many clients, they are not the right solution and there are many alternatives to this drawn out process that may be better for your situation. In some case, however, this is the only route available. No matter which direction your divorce takes you, our firm can offer you the right representation. If you are thinking about getting a divorce, or dealing with a contested divorce and need this type of assertive, zealous representation, call our firm today.

Child support is the money that a parent pays for the living and medical expenses of their child. Child support is payable until the child reaches the age of 21, and sometimes, in the case of a written agreement, beyond that age. In New York, child support is most often paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. The amount of child support that a parent is required to pay is determined by income. Child support is payable even if you have never been married. Many times, in order to obtain an order awarding child support, a parent will have to establish paternity first.

Failure to pay child support is punishable by law and child support enforcement is possible through a variety of means including incarceration, passport withhold, wage garnishment and others. In many cases, failure to pay child support will result in the accumulation of arrears, which can add up fast. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU. Contact our office for help now.
