Can my address be confidential during a custody dispute?

Domestic violence is all too common in New York and when a person who is being subjected to abuse finally decides to end the relationship, there are inevitable concerns as to what the abusive spouse will do. It is vital that people be protected from abuse and if there are allegations to that effect, it is possible to have an address be made confidential during the process. Understanding how this can be done is key.

Child custody and visitation and extraordinary circumstances

In New York State, child custody and visitation can be a complicated matter that has a seemingly endless number of variables. As always, the best interests of the child are paramount. In some instances, there will be people who want to have custody of the child in addition to the parents. This can be a difficult to navigate situation, but the law addresses it by assessing what is known as "extraordinary circumstances."

How is the basic child support calculated in New York?

For New York couples with children, divorce can be complex. Once one or both spouses plan to divorce, the child support will be a major concern to both sides. The main objective is to ensure the child is cared for properly and his or her best interests are served. As the child support amount is determined, it is wise to understand how the basic child support obligation is calculated.

A qualified divorce lawyer is essential with significant assets

New York is a city that attracts attention. Since it is so glossy, cosmopolitan and popular, it will naturally have a vast number of high-profile people who live there. Many of these people are married and live a notable lifestyle. Given the prevalence of divorce not just in New York, but throughout the world, it is unavoidable that some of these unions will not stand the test of time and the couple will decide it is best to part ways. However, this can cause problems as they seek to divide their property interests and determine who will get what. With a high-asset divorce, both sides need legal assistance.
