Get in Touch with a Family Lawyer in Woodmere, NY

Several years ago, I lost my wife, who was an angel. I then became a single father to the three most beautiful girls in the world. Through my experience in the world of second-time daters, I encountered many men and women who were badly hurt by the system. I was regaled with tales of lawyers who were not invested in their best interests and some that dragged out the conflicts well beyond necessary and racked up bills. Of course, beyond the feeling of abuse, their children’s pain lengthened and deepened. After hearing those experiences, I decided I would be different. I committed to not stopping until my clients get what they deserve without capitalizing on someone’s travesty for personal gain. Having lived here all my life, I decided I wanted to be a Nassau County divorce lawyer.

FAQ’s

  • What grounds do I need to file for divorce?
    • New York is a no-fault jurisdiction which means the most commonly cited cause is IRRETRIEVABLE BREAKDOWN IN RELATIONSHIP. So, for example, if your spouse had adultery, it is not really relevant to the actual divorce grounds.
  • Do I file a contested divorce or an uncontested divorce?
    • Uncontested means both parties agree to sign a settlement outside of court and are relatively close in terms of what they want in the terms.
  • How much does the divorce process cost?
    • Uncontested divorces are considerably cheaper, the range is between $1,000-$3,000 depending on complexity. For a contested divorce, it will depend on how willing the spouses are to work together, if so, it can cost as little as $7,000 but if there is excessive fighting the divorce can last years and the sky is the limit.
  • How long before I am officially divorced?
    • Fortunately, NY is not a state that requires a separation period. So as long as you and your spouse have been married for at least 6 months and are an NY resident, you can begin the process immediately. If the divorce is not contested it can be completed in as fast as two months and may take as long as eight months. If the divorce is contested and the parties find it challenging to agree, divorce can go on for many years.
