Divorce and Family Legal Issues in Brooklyn
According to at least one report, in accordance with the declining divorce rate statewide, divorce rates in Brooklyn in particular have decreased by a reported 25% since the peak of filings, which occurred in 2007. Potential reasons for this decline that have been postulated include factors such as a higher concentration of young families living in Brooklyn, increasing unemployment, and difficulty in maintaining a single income home during a tough economic time. Nonetheless, divorce remains an all-too-common occurrence in Brooklyn and throughout New York City, always bringing with it a host of complex issues concerning the entire family unit
Type of matters facing those beginning, going through or coming out of a divorce include:
- Child Custody
- Child Support
- Spousal Support
- Division of Property
- Pre-nuptial Agreements, and much more
The years after a divorce can also create a host of obstacles in adjusting to a new, fragmented family unit. You may be surprised to learn that getting a modification to your divorce decree or support award can be incredibly difficult. In fact, absent a substantial change in circumstances, there may be a minimum number of years required before a court will even consider making a modification. Therefore, you'll want to make sure that you will be satisfied with the terms of your divorce in the years to come. A knowledgeable divorce attorney can ensure that all of the relevant considerations have been addressed.
