Efficiently Resolve Divorce Terms
We get to the heart of each divorce matter to effectively negotiate for our client’s goals.
Property Division. No matter the size of your estate or the length of your marriage, you probably acquired property and debt during your union. You also most likely had separate property brought into the marriage. Peekskill follows equitable distribution guidelines to determine how property and debts are distributed between divorcing spouses. Separate property generally stays with the person who originally owned the property. Marital property is divided equitably, but not necessarily equally, between the two parties. Our legal team will fight for what is rightfully yours.
Child Support. New York uses a standard formula to determine basic child support. This calculation is based on the net income of the parents and the number of children needing financial support. Each parent is responsible for their proportional share. If you bring in 40% of the combined net income, you will be responsible for 40% of the total child support. The parent with less custody time with the child pays the other parent their share. An accurate income total is critical to calculating fair child support. Our Peekskill divorce attorneys argue on behalf of our client to ensure appropriate child support is paid and received.
Child Custody. Many parents choose to share custody of their children, but there are situations when one parent believes sole custody is in the best interest of the child. There are two types of custody. Physical custody refers to where the child will live. Legal custody refers to the parent’s decision-making authority. Both types of custody can be either joint or sole. One parent may have sole custody in one aspect, but joint custody in the other. Count on us to hammer out agreements, even in complex custody cases.
Visitation. A noncustodial parent generally has the right to have a meaningful relationship with their child. Except in extreme circumstances, New York believes a child is best served by spending time with both parents. Visitation time can be significant and include overnight visits. In other situations, supervised visitation may be best for the child. We have significant experience negotiating customized visitation and parenting plans that work for the whole family.
