What forms of relief may an order for protection provide?

Orders for protection are issued by New York courts for the protection of victims of domestic violence. Because domestic violence may take on many different forms, orders for protection are not limited to simple restrictions on the aggressors' behaviors. A variety of different actions may be prevented and prohibited for a domestic violence abuser per the terms of a valid order for protection.

Money matters can complicate post-divorce life

When a New Yorker makes the difficult decision to end their marriage, they may prioritize getting to the end of their legal proceedings above all other considerations. However, there are a number of important issues individuals should address before and during their divorce proceedings that can help smooth out the financial transition they will inevitably have to make when their legal relationships are terminated.

Will I be awarded spousal support after my divorce?

When a New York divorce is finalized, the parties to the ended marriage are returned to their single status and are free to marry again if they so choose. The parties are no longer obligated to each other as they were when they were married, though agreements and orders created during their divorce proceedings may continue to bind them for many years into the future.

Asset division and the active appreciation of separate assets

When young New Yorkers decide to get married, it is not uncommon for the future marital partners to have few assets to their names and only a modest amount of money in the bank. As individuals age, though, their overall wealth generally increases through work, savings and investments. When individuals choose to marry later in life they can bring a lot more money and a lot more property to the relationship.
