White Plains Divorce Lawyers
People do not get married with the intention of having the marriage fail. Unfortunately, people can and do grow apart and divorce may be preferable to remaining in an unhappy and loveless marriage. Divorce is a difficult step. Complications such as children, property and debt mean there are many issues that must be resolved. The divorce lawyers at Most & Schneid, P.C., know these are difficult times and we take pride in helping our clients make the right decisions to help them move forward with their lives.
Guiding You Though The New York Divorce Process
Many people believe that if they have been wronged during the course of a marriage it means they will have a benefit when it comes to the divorce. This is a common misconception. Unless there is egregious fault, courts are not interested in fault, and it does not affect equitable distribution. Rather, the court’s role is to separate the parties, equitably divide the assets, and ensure that the best interests of the children are achieved.
Though it was once necessary to establish legal grounds for divorce in New York, that is no longer the case today. As of 2010, New York spouses have the ability to pursue a no-fault divorce, a streamlined process that allows couples to separate much more quickly and easily.
The courts address a series of issues involved in the divorce proceedings, including the division of property and debts, maintenance, child custody and visitation and child support. Because of the predictability of some of these issues, our Westchester County divorce attorneys can provide a realistic probability of what to expect if you were to take your case to trial.
