New York is an
equitable distribution state that now allows for
no-fault divorce. If you are getting a divorce, it's important to understand that there
isn't a cookie-cutter approach to divorce cases and no two are identical.
Matters pertaining to
debt division and
maintenance vary widely depending on a number of factors including the length of the
marriage and whether or not the couple has children.
St. James Divorce Attorney By Your Side
contested divorce is one where the parties cannot agree on vital issues over assets and/or
child custody, whereas an uncontested divorce is the opposite where the
couple can agree. In all marriages with children a divorce won't be
granted until after the parents come to terms on
child support. In cases where the couple can't agree on child custody, the judge
will step in and make a decision for them based on what's in the best
interests of the children. Although the family court encourages frequent
contact with both parents, custody may be denied in cases of child abuse,
drug or alcohol abuse.
