Divorce and Family Law Attorney Services


Servicing Mineola NY, Baldwin NY & Surrounding Areas


Divorce or Marital Dissolution is the legal termination of a marital relationship.  The divorce process can vary greatly from case to case.  Uncontested divorces are the easiest and fastest way to dissolve a marriage.  With the addition of the “No-Fault” divorce legislation becoming law in New York, the grounds for a divorce is no longer an issue.  Unfortunately, not all divorces are capable of resolution without litigation.  Contested divorces are therefore a necessary evil.  It is very important to sit down with an attorney before you commence your divorce action, to come up with an effective strategy to execute during your divorce process.  This will help to overcome the emotional stress that the divorce will put on you.  It will also give your attorney the opportunity to figure out your goals and objectives while you are thinking clearly and before the reality of the process sets in.  A skilled family law attorney should be able to map out realistic and attainable goals for the major issues of:

  • Child Support
  • Child Custody and Visitation
  • Maintenance
  • Equitable Distribution
