NYC Divorce Attorney
Divorce: Highest Quality Counsel in NYC
Divorce is one of the most stressful experiences a person can go through. The important decisions which one must make relative to assets, child custody, and support can have long lasting consequences. When a couple is divorcing, the most prudent course of action is to consult with a qualified and experienced family law attorney in New York City. You may be wondering if you actually need an attorney to represent you in your divorce.
Our divorce lawyers at H. Benjamin Perez & Associates, P.C. have been representing clients in divorce for years. We are bilingual (Spanish and English) trial lawyers who are extremely committed to our clients and focused on case preparation and court room presentation. The life of a divorce case can take unexpected twists and turns, involving issues such as child custody agreements, spousal support, child support, asset division, and alimony. Motions for contempt for non-compliance of the court's orders, and motions to modify existing orders of support or custody due to substantial changes in your circumstances can all become a familiar part of your day to day life when you are involved in a divorce.
Why is it Important to hire a divorce attorney?
New York law now allows for a no-fault divorce. Although you will no longer be required to establish grounds for the divorce—other than the marriage being irretrievably broken—all of the issues regarding property division, child / spousal support, and custody still must be resolved. If you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce, your attorney can act as a mediator and establish the details and conditions of the divorce. If there is contention and disagreement in the divorce, then a judge will decide your future. This is where you need a skilled trial attorney from our firm to represent your rights.
When going through divorce, there are countless issues that need to be resolved before the divorce can be finalized. Some of the family law matters that you may be facing include:
These matters can be resolved through negotiations if you and your spouse are able to agree on crucial matters. If not, the court will need to make these determinations on your behalf. Other family law matters we can assist you with include the drafting of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, parental alienation issues, or making
modifications to your current support or custody orders. Our firm has also handles cases regarding
same sex marriage and the
Marriage Equality Act in New York.
