"Marty is a gem of an attorney. Very thorough and no non-sense. He helped close a real estate deal for us and identified subtle, but important issues with the property paperwork which most other attorneys would have missed."

Bayside Attorneys and Bayside Lawyers For Hire

If you are looking for a divorce lawyer in bayside ny, you’ve found the right place. New York State has different requirements for how to complete a divorce, but if a divorce settlement is not possible, property division and child custody will be important elements in the decision making. 

There are certain criteria you want to know before proceeding with hiring a bayside divorce attorney. Three things are required here. If you were married in NY State, one of the spouses has to have lived in the state for at least one year. If you lived in NY as a married couple and one of you has lived in the state for at least one year. Or one of you has lived here for at least 2 years. Assuming any of these three applies to your case, call us for a free consultation. L

New York State is one of equitable distribution rather than community property. Marital property is divided equitably in New York, so property and debts acquired during the marriage are divided between the spouses based on what is fair, which does not necessarily mean the division must be equal. The court will consider each spouse’s future financial circumstances, a custodial parent’s need to stay in the family home, the tax consequences to each spouse of any given division and the value of the assets or business interests.

Frequently Asked Questions

The single most contentious issue in divorce actions is frequently the issue of custody and parenting time with the parties’ child or children. There has been a growing trend in New York Courts in recent years to encourage joint custody of children as well as a fairly equal division of parenting time between the parties.

A very small percentage of cases actually proceed to a full trial. With knowledgeable counsel representing each party, it is more likely than not that a comprehensive resolution of all issues may be achieved in lieu of what is generally a very costly trial.
