When a couple gets a divorce in New York, their assets will be divided
under the laws of equitable distribution. With
debt division and
property division are divided fairly and equitable but not necessarily down the middle.
The courts will examine the length of the marriage, the contributions
of both spouses and a host of other factors when determining how assets
are divided. Of course, it's always best to come up with a solid
settlement agreement with your spouse that way you and your spouse can be in control of how
your assets are divided amongst yourselves. It will be necessary for you
and your spouse to disclose your
financial records, that way a fair agreement can be reached. If you have children from the
marriage, we will have to come to an agreement on
child custody and
visitation with your spouse and if you can't agree, the courts will make a decision
based on the best interests of the children. Typically the parent who
doesn't have physical custody of the children is the one that has to pay
child support payments to the custodial parent.
