No-fault divorce in New York
In 2010, New York became the last state to offer no-fault divorce, meaning that you no longer need to present fault as grounds for divorce. Before the law was passed, one spouse had to be accused of something, such as infidelity or domestic violence, in order to be granted a divorce. Now couples can end their marriage without being forced to assign blame.. You can get a no-fault divorce if one partner states that the marriage has "broken down irretrievably for a period of at least six months" (DRL 170.7).
Effective family law mediator
Mediation gives you and your spouse the opportunity to negotiate a divorce settlement in a structured setting with a trained facilitator. The mediation process fosters cooperation between partners and removes the unpredictability and uncertainty associated with litigation. Mediation often reduces the time and costs of divorce, and puts the decisions in your hands. We can help you obtain an equitable divorce settlement, fair child support agreement and healthy child custody arrangement.
Skilled family law litigator
Sometimes litigation is necessary to reach a just and equitable resolution to your family's disputes. Through tactical trial strategies and professional courtroom presence, we successfully represent clients throughout the adversarial litigation process. We are prepared to handle the complex aspects of your divorce and seek the most favorable trial outcome.
