What Our Clients say:
In New York, a divorce petition is filed by a married couple with the NYC family courts. Then, the court sends a process server who will deliver the divorce petition to the spouse. This gives the spouse an opportunity to respond. The court may change the process if the spouse doesn’t respond or refuses to reply. A NYC family court judge could grant a summary judgment in favor of the petitioner. This will allow the petitioner to obtain a divorce without the spouse who is not responding having any input in the proceedings.
People who are preparing to divorce often worry about the length of time it will take for the divorce proceedings to be finalized. New York does not have a state-mandated waiting period for a divorce decree to be finalized. The amount of time it takes to finish New York divorce proceedings depends entirely on whether there is a contested divorce. A divorce that is completely uncontested, where the couple has no children and shares little, could take as little as six weeks. For very complex divorces, the proceedings can take months to complete. A New York City divorce attorney can give you a rough estimate of the time it will take to get your divorce finalized. It is possible to speed up your divorce proceedings if you and your spouse are open to civil negotiations and collaboration. Your NYC family lawyer can help you explore mediation to speed up your divorce. It is our job to help you minimize conflict, and wherever route you take, it’s important to speak with an experienced divorce attorney first.
Custody and visitation are two of the most important and challenging questions in any divorce or legal separation. Which parent should the children live with? Will there be a primary caregiver or will both share equal time with the children? Will one parent decide on education and health issues? Or will both parents have to be involved in the decision-making process? When it comes to visitation, what are the rights of the father and what about the mother? How can I get custody of my children? Legal representation can help both the divorcing parties and children immensely in this emotionally difficult and complex process. A good child custody attorney will give you peace of mind and ensure that your rights are protected. Juan Luciano, a Brooklyn child custody lawyer, will help you resolve any issues related to custody or visitation proceedings.

Will one parent decide on education and health issues?
Or will both parties have to be involved in the decision-making process?
When it comes to visitation, what are the rights of the father and what about the mother?

Juan Luciano, a Brooklyn child custody lawyer in New York City, will help you resolve any issues related to custody or visitation proceedings.
In New York, the term “child custody” refers to the right of a parent to make decisions for their child and/or care for them. A lot depends on what type of custody is granted.
New York courts will only give custody for children under 18 years of age, and only based on what they deem to be in the child’s best interests. To speak with one of experienced New York divorce attorneys at the Law Office of Juan Luciano, call now (929) 566-7730.
New York has two main types of child custody: legal custody and physical custody. If there is no custody order, the both legal and physical custody will be shared by both parents. A petition can be filed with the court to modify this arrangement. Often, an attorney will assist in this process.
Legal Custody gives a parent the power to make major decisions regarding the child’s education, religion, and medical care. Both can share the decision-making power regarding the child’s education if the court grants them joint custody. The former spouses would be expected to communicate and cooperate in cases of joint custody. Courts will usually try to maintain equal rights for divorcing spouses when it comes to custody. The court will consider the best interests and needs of the child first.
Physical custody, also known as residential custody, gives a parent the right and obligation to provide shelter for their child and make decisions regarding the day-to-day supervision of and care of the child. The former spouses can share physical custody. In this case, the parents can swap parenting time with their child according to a schedule and agreement. Alternatively, the court might give primary physical custody of the child to one party only. The custodial parent (also known as primary caretaker) will have physical custody for most of the time (more than 50%), and will be responsible for the majority (or all of) of the day. Visitation rights may be granted to the noncustodial parents.
Child custody issues can arise in divorce, annulment, separation proceedings, adoption and in the case of death, but most commonly arise in cases of a divorce.
Joint custody is awarded only if the court deems it to be in the child’s best interest. One party may be granted sole custody in some custody arrangements. This is the case if either party is deemed unfit or it is impossible to make joint decisions.
You Don't have to do this alone
The time required to finalize a contested or uncontested divorce is one of the most significant differences between the two.
Many uncontested divorces are quick. However, even a “quick” divorce in Brooklyn can still take a while, depending on other circumstances. An uncontested divorce doesn’t require discovery or a trial. This means that an uncontested divorce will cost less than a contested one. Uncontested and contested divorces also differ in that the outcome of a contested divorce can be appealed.
The terms of an uncontested divorce cannot be appealed because both parties have agreed to it. However, the agreement is not binding on the parties forever. Under some circumstances, you may be able to modify the agreement. Overall, the parties are usually more satisfied with the outcome because they make the decisions.
In a contested divorce you and your spouse are unable to agree on the terms, you will need a judge to help you decide. If a divorce is contested and you can not agree on important issues, the judge will make the final decisions. While the judge might place certain concerns above others, this may not always be in line with the priorities of the couple. One spouse might be keen to keep the condo while the other may prefer the country house. A judge might order that the condo be sold and the country house given to the other spouse. The greater the control that spouses have over this process, the easier it is for them to reach an agreement they can both live with. Although there are many benefits to an uncontested divorce, it can sometimes be difficult to reach an agreement with your soon-to-be ex-spouse about important issues. An experienced New York divorce attorney can help you resolve the difference that might, on your own, seem unresolvable.
