Getting divorced in New York

Your divorce may be complicated and involve such issues as adultery and alimony payments, or it could be a fairly straightforward divorce involving no children and few assets. The types of divorces we handle regularly include:

  • Contested divorce
  • Uncontested divorce
  • No-fault divorce
  • Same-sex divorce
  • High-net-worth divorce

What to expect in your divorce case

As you begin the process of divorce, whether it’s contested or uncontested, knowing what lies ahead can provide a measure of comfort during a tumultuous time. In addition to explaining the preparation phase before filing for divorce, Lauren B. Abramson, Esq. explains all of the other aspects of divorce, including:

  • Serving divorce papers
  • What to do if papers are served to you
  • Obtaining temporary orders of child support and/or alimony
  • The discovery process
  • Settlement options
  • Pretrial conferences and hearings

Can we negotiate a settlement agreement?

In New York, the spouses can enter into a settlement agreement, also known as a stipulation of settlement, which addresses property division, alimony and other issues. If you have high net worth, it is particularly prudent to negotiate a settlement agreement, rather than leave the division of your property to a court.

Whether yours is a no-fault divorce, a same-sex divorce or any other type of divorce, the court has a tremendous amount of discretion in deciding what happens to your property if you have not worked out a settlement agreement. Before signing any settlement agreement, contact the attorney and staff at the law offices of Lauren B. Abramson, Esq. for knowledgeable legal advice.
