Should I Hire a Family Law Attorney?

A family legal dispute can take its toll on you and your family.

Grounds for Divorce in New York

New York is a no-fault divorce state. This means that you may file for divorce based on an irreconcilable breakdown of the marriage. Individuals do still can file for a fault-based divorce (grounds include adultery, abuse, and addiction), but this is not a frequent occurrence.

The Child’s Best Interest Standard

If children are involved in your family dispute, you will quickly become familiar with the phrase “the best interest of the child.” Child custody and visitation disputes are ultimately determined based on what is best for the child. The child’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being are the top priority in these cases and take precedent over the parents’ interests. While the court usually favors joint custody among parents, they will rule differently if they believe such a custody arrangement would not be in the child's best interest.

Calculating Alimony & Child Support in New York

New York state calculates alimony and child support payments based on statutory formulas. To determine child support, the court considers each parent’s income and the number of children being supported. When calculating alimony, the court will consider a number of factors, including the age of the spouses, the income and earning potential of both spouses, and the ability of each party to be self-supporting.
