Budgeting during a divorce

Most of us groan when thinking of setting up a budget, but this task is essential if you are going through a divorce. Most likely, you won’t be at the same income level after you divorce and now is the time to have a plan for when that day comes.

Grounds upon which to challenge paternity in New York

Questioning paternity is one of the most traumatic issues that can arise in a family. In most cases, one or both parents want to resolve the matter as quickly as possible so that they can make important decisions about their future. A speedy resolution also benefits the children because it enables them to know who is and is not their true father.

Is your co-parent misusing your child support payments?

Family courts in New York do not typically monitor how a parent uses the other parent's child support payments. As you might imagine, tracking these expenditures would be difficult or impossible. It would also compromise the efficiency of a court system already clogged with divorce, child custody and support issues.

What factors affect the equitable distribution of property?

There is little doubt that property division is a complex part of getting a divorce. Aside from matters involving children, it is the most dreaded portion of the divorce process in most cases. What you might not realize is that dividing marital property under New York's equitable distribution laws need not be frightening.

Finding out what your kids think about your divorce

When parents get divorced, they spend a lot of time thinking about what is best for the children -- or, at least, what they think is best. While it's good to put the children first, do not forget that they have opinions and desires of their own. It's wise to talk to them and find out how you can make things go as smoothly as possible for them.

Get to know these common family law terms

You might go through your entire life without ever needing the services a family law attorney provides. On the other hand, you may find yourself in a situation in which such a lawyer is invaluable. Examples of these situations include getting a divorce, adopting a child or negotiating child custody and child support.

How does New York enforce child support obligations?

All states have laws governing how noncustodial parents must handle their child support obligations, and New York is no exception. Because child custody and support are important issues, no divorce in the state is final until negotiations regarding these matters are complete.

Is there a right time to get divorced?

As you start thinking about divorce, you may find yourself wondering if there is a right time to take this next step. Is there something you should be waiting for? What is the best time to file for divorce or to tell your spouse? What about telling the kids?
