New York abuse victims may fear filing for divorce

When many New York residents learn that a family member or friend is in an abusive marriage, they may encourage their loved ones to get out as soon as possible. To individuals outside the situation, filing for divorce may seem like the obvious solution to the problem. However, as many domestic abuse victims know, leaving an abuser is not always easy.

What to do if you disagree with a child custody order

If you and your spouse are in the midst of a bitter divorce in Suffolk, chances are you and your spouse are in disagreement about who gets custody of the kids. Though you both have a decent income and feel your children are better off without the other parent, the courts and law state otherwise. Your kids deserve to have both of their parents in their lives, even though things may not be right between you and their other guardian. 

Working together could help parents come to child custody terms

As parents going through divorce, many New York residents may feel as if they have failed their children.

Parents' divorce can have negative impacts on adult children

Many parents worry about the effects that ending their marriage will have on their kids. In particular, individuals often have concerns regarding child custody and their young children. However, many New York residents may have grown children for whom custody terms are not needed but who could still face considerable impacts as a result of their parents' divorce.

Is the home worth keeping after divorce?

Some individuals may feel that they are losing a great deal when ending their marriages. These feelings may be tied to the loss of companionship, a spouse or possibly physical assets. Because it is not unusual for individuals to get attached to their belongings, it is also common for parties to have difficulty dividing assets during divorce. However, holding onto certain property may not always be in New York residents' best interests.
