We are here for you:
You and your spouse have decided to divorce. In most cases, this is entirely new terrain for you. fraught with emotion and anxiety, regardless of whether you are still “friendly” with each other or not.
Just like marriage sets the course for your emotional and financial future, so does divorce. But unlike marriage, you are going into a divorce with a different mindset and have different needs, both for yourself and your children. In this new landscape, consulting with a reputable Bronx divorce lawyer can set the stage for a better outcome once your divorce is finalized.
When it comes to divorce and family law, there are two ways to proceed.
One way is the uncontested divorce. This is where you and your spouse can find common ground and are able to compromise on issues like property division, support and visitation, and debt.
Uncontested divorce will be a more amicable solution to a couple’s split. However, even with mediation, many couples with children find these compromises difficult. Often, an uncontested divorce can take a swift turn into contested territory. If you decided on an uncontested divorce, hiring a talented Bronx divorce lawyer can help you negotiate the best outcome and keep the peace.
In a contested divorce you and your spouse could not agree on the big issues. With the assistance of a divorce attorney, each party will negotiate terms that have to do with their children, division of property, and individual financial obligations. Because there are many matters to resolve under the law when ending a marriage, many divorces will go this route.
No matter which path your divorce takes, hiring an experienced law firm can help to ensure best results for all parties involved.

One of the biggest challenges in any divorce and family law case is the way you and your spouse will determine your responsibilities toward your children. Where will they live? Who will make the important decisions regarding their lives?
Child custody law has various nuances and should be carefully considered. Legal custody – making decisions regarding the children’s health and welfare – and physical custody – where they will reside – can be either shared or, in the case of sole custody, be the responsibility of one partner. And these will be determined based on many different factors, all of which will be considered under the standard of the “best interests of the child”.
Especially in cases of child custody, it’s important for a divorcing couple to get the advice of experienced Bronx divorce lawyers to understand the full legal impact of their decisions. Great divorce attorneys can help make this process faster and smoother for everyone involved.
