Saratoga Springs, NY Family Law Practice Areas
We support you in all areas of family law, including:
Prenuptial and Post Nuptial Agreements
Many couples want to designate how to divide their property before, or even shortly after, they take their vows. This agreement helps avoid a potentially contentious property split if the marriage doesn’t work out down the road. We specialize in preparing and amending these agreements to cover your property and meet all of New York’s legal requirements.
New York law has precise requirements for a Separation Agreement, which can convert to a no-fault divorce after one year. We’ll craft an agreement that works for both sides and includes the necessary language so it can be converted economically to a no-fault divorce.
Our Saratoga Divorce Lawyers are experienced on both no-fault and at-fault divorces. No-fault divorce is the most cost-effective way to obtain a divorce. In order to obtain a no-fault divorce, the parties need to have lived in New York for at least one year. A no fault divorce can also be granted if there are no children, the parties agree to property division, and the relationship has been irretrievably broken for six months.
At-fault divorces can be the most expensive and time-consuming divorce process, if the at-fault party seeks to challenge these claims in a lawsuit. At-fault divorces require proof of misconduct by one of the spouses. Severe and cruel treatment, abandonment, imprisonment, or adultery are among the grounds for an at-fault divorce.
A New York court can issue orders about a child’s custody only if the child is under 18. The Court grants custody based on the best interest of the child. Our lawyers have decades of experience and a proven track record of success advocating on behalf of our clients’ custody and child support needs.
Alimony is called spousal support or maintenance in New York. The court’s goal in awarding alimony is to allow both spouses to live a similar lifestyle to when they were married. While there are formulas that courts apply, each case is different. Our Saratoga Family lawyers are effective in citing and highlighting factors that put our clients in the most favorable light.
