Divorce

New York has a no-fault divorce law. Our law firm has deep experience helping people through marital separation under this law. We can handle all aspects of your divorce, ensuring that the process is completed in an efficient manner and that your legal rights and financial interests are fully protected.

Property Division

New York is an equitable distribution jurisdiction. Under state law, each person is entitled to receive a ‘fair’ share of the marital property. However, what constitutes a ‘fair’ share is not always easy to determine. In some cases, dividing assets and liabilities can be deeply challenging.
