We Can Help Resolve the Toughest Issues
New York has a ‘no fault’ divorce law (DRL §170.7). Under this law, the only grounds for divorce that you will need to prove is that your marriage has ‘irretrievably’ broken down. As a general rule, this is not a particularly difficult thing to do. Indeed, your own testimony will generally be sufficient. That being said, getting divorced in Montgomery County, New York is certainly not easy. There are many tough questions that will need to be answered. Our law firm can help you resolve all of the toughest issues. This includes:
- Child custody;
- Child visitation;
- Child support;
- Alimony/spousal maintenance; and
- Division of property.
