Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I Need a Prenuptial Agreement?
    With the divorce rate as high as it is, a prenuptial agreement can act like an insurance policy, a protection of your assets that you hope to never use, but that you can't afford to be without. It can also help you and your fiancé to have important discussions on finances and to plot a blueprint for how finances will be managed in your marriage.
  • How Long Does a Divorce Take in New York?
    Every divorce is different, lasting from a few weeks to several months or even years. It can depend on the amount and the complexity of the property to be divided, how contested matters of child custody are, and so on. With a skilled divorce attorney, however, you may be able to avoid needless delays.
    There is a residency requirement of one spouse living in New York for at least one year if you lived as a married couple in the state or got married in New York. Otherwise, one of you must have lived in New York for a minimum of two years.
  • Can My Child Choose Which Parent to Live With?
    Depending on the age of your child, an attorney will talk with the child to understand their wishes. However, a family court will not make its decision on child custody based only on the child's expressed wishes, as many other considerations have to be taken into account.
  • Can I Modify Child Support Payments?
    You can, but only with the court's approval. If you and the other parent make a verbal agreement, this cannot be enforced in court, and any unpaid child support per the original court order will still be demanded by the court. If you have been confronted with medical problems, job loss, or other significant changes that prevent you from paying child support, be sure to speak with a family attorney today.
