Ways to secure a strong and valid prenuptial agreement

When you think about it, preparing to get married is has some similarities to preparing to get divorced. A lot of time and effort is put into both events, and in most cases, serious decisions must be made. Finally, finances control both, in the sense that finances control how lavish the marriage ceremony will be or finances control how issues pertaining to support and property will be awarded following a dissolution. Because the two events are major life events, it seems logical to take steps to make both matters better. Taking the time to understand the capabilities and benefits of a prenuptial agreement could be extremely beneficial for couples in New York.

Helping you protect yourself in domestic violence matters

Ending a marriage is a troubling life event on its own for couples in New York and elsewhere; however, ending a marriage because of abuse can be traumatic and impact a person for the rest of his or her life. This is a highly sensitive and delicate matter, as oftentimes it is not just a spouse that needs protection. When high conflict and domestic abuse enter a marriage or household, the victim spouse and the children involved can suffer greatly.

What is an order of protection?

We all need to feel safe. Unfortunately, some individuals in New York and elsewhere are harmed or feel threatened by a partner in a romantic relationship. Domestic abuse is a serious safety issue, and when a partner or spouse feels that his or her safety is at risk, it is important to take steps to ensure that safety is regained and one no longer has to fear harm or threats of harm. Filing for a protection order may be in the best interests of a person harmed by domestic abuse.

Understanding grandparent visitation rights

Becoming a grandparent can be an exciting time in a person's life. Whether it is your first grandchild or fifth, you likely want to remain present in your grandchild's life. Unfortunately, events in life can strain a grandparent-grandchild relationship. Divorce can create distance between a parent and their in-laws. This could even result in major disputes arising. Such a situation could cause a grandparent to lose time with a grandchild, especially when a custodial parent believes that it is best for his or her child to no longer spend time with this grandparent.
