Don’t Worry; We’ve Got You Covered

We've Got You CoveredDivorcing your spouse does not mean that you will become destitute or that you will be financially ruined. The law in New York State provides mechanisms to protect you and ensure that you and your children have the resources to move on to a happier, healthier, more fulfilled life.

 

What Am I Entitled To?

Every divorce and family law case is truly unique. No two couples have exactly the same home life, upbringing, assets, property and attitude. Every person approaches their divorce with different needs, expectations and disposition to negotiate and compromise. All of these factors play a part in the divorce process and, ultimately, in the divorce settlement.

 

New York State Sets Guidelines

New York State, however, has set some standard guidelines Long Island courts use to determine the main areas of most divorce settlements. The three main areas are:

 

You Are Free to Make Your Own Agreement

While the state sets the guidelines, you and your spouse are also free to make your own agreements that work for your unique circumstances outside of those guidelines.

 

We will cover the main aspects of what the law provides individually so that you have an idea of the minimum you can expect to receive or pay. Click an image below to learn more about that aspect.

Reviews

  • I have known Robert for more than 8 eight years. Robert has represented many of my family and friends. Each and every one has raved about Robert’s professionalism and expertise. He is knowledgable, friendly and truly cares about his clients. I would not hesitate to continue to refer Robert and his firm in the future!
  • I’ve known Robert for most of my life, and feel very fortunate that I have been able to turn to a good friend for various kinds of legal advice. He is very intelligent, straight forward, and professional. Most importantly though, Robert always finds the fastest resolution, and will not waste your time or money. He is NOT in the habit of dragging things through litigation if there is no need for the added expense. I have referred a few of my friends to Robert, and they have all been more than satisfied in their experience with him. Highly recommend!!
