Newburgh Divorce Lawyer
When a couple decides to file for divorce, there are many complex issues to resolve and questions to answer. How is alimony/spousal support determined? How much child support will I have to pay?

New York No-Fault Divorce
Recently, New York has amended its divorce law to allow no-fault divorce under limited circumstances. No-fault divorce is only for those situations in which parties are able to find an amicable resolution to divorce issues such as child custody and visitation, property division and alimony. The divorce is considered “uncontested.” In addition, parties must show that the marriage has been “irretrievably broken” for six months or more. This is usually proven if the parties have lived in separate residences for at least six months.
Unless parties can find a resolution to all custody and financial issues in a divorce, a no-fault divorce is not an option. The divorce is considered “contested.” The parties must allege a proper “ground” for divorce such as:
- Inhumane treatment
- Living apart for one year
Property Division: Equitable Distribution of Assets and Debts
What can be a contentious issue in a divorce is the division of marital assets. In New York, all marital property is divided “equitably.” Where the issue often lies is what assets and liabilities are considered marital and which are nonmarital. We can help you reach an amicable resolution for this and all other divorce issues. While we have strong negotiation skills, we are not afraid to go to trial and are always ready and prepared to do so. At our firm, we fight for our divorce clients.
