We understand how divorce can affect a family and our Suffolk County law firm can help you with every step of the process including:
Before you are able to file for a divorce in New York, you must first have filed for legal separation and lived apart for at least 6 months. During your separation you must complete a separation agreement. A separation agreement is a detailed contract stipulating the division of property, debt and child custody. Our Suffolk County divorce attorneys recommend you consider seeking the advice of a family law attorney as this document is usually what is used in the final divorce proceedings and if you and your spouse are having trouble agreeing on the division of property and child custody, they can assist you.
Types of Divorce
In Suffolk County, there are several types of divorce you may file depending in your situation. Our divorce attorneys can help navigate you down which divorce will be the best option for you.
If you and your spouse are both in agreement for the divorce, you have the option to tell the Suffolk County Family Court you have irreconcilable differences or you have suffered an irremediable breakdown of your relationship. This will allow you to file for a No-Fault divorce.
If you and your spouse are unable to agree on matters like property division and child custody then you will have a contested divorce. We highly recommend hiring legal counsel if this is your situation. Our divorce attorneys are experienced handling contested divorce cases and can help you and your spouse come to a fair agreement.
If you and your spouse can work together and agree to the terms of the divorce, this would be the most streamlined, cost-effective option. Our Suffolk County divorce attorneys can help guide you through this process.
