Divorce Attorney Representing Clients in New York City
Divorce can raise concerns about the impact on your financial future and children. We will address those concerns by guiding you on key issues such as:
The state’s rules of equitable division apply to New York City divorces. This means marital property – property acquired during the marriage (e.g. real estate, bank accounts, investments, retirement accounts, and debts) – must be divided fairly, but not necessarily equally. When disputes often arise over the difference between marital and separate property, we seek amicable solutions. Trust us to work closely with you to protect your financial future.
For most couples, both spouses work outside of the home, so spousal maintenance (formerly alimony) is not automatic or guaranteed. Depending on the circumstances, the court may award temporary or post-divorce maintenance to either spouse, unless the parties agree on a settlement.
Prior to granting a divorce in New York City, the courts require an agreement regarding child custody and parenting plans. Above all, we will work to help you maintain a relationship with your child and reach a custody arrangement in their best interests.
All parents, married and unmarried, must financially support their children. In a divorce, the party who resides with the children is entitled to child support, or in a 50/50 custody case the higher-earning parent typically pays child support to the other. The amount is based on each parent’s income, the number of children involved, the custody arrangements, and other factors.
In New York City, an amicable divorce closely parallels an uncontested divorce, as both entail the involved parties collaboratively addressing their differences. This cooperative approach allows for an expedient resolution that is cost-effective, facilitating a smoother transition into their new lives. An amicable divorce is particularly advantageous for couples intending to co-parent their children.
High-net-worth divorce, encompassing significant assets valued at $1-5 million or more, poses unique challenges. We leverage our comprehensive knowledge of intricate financial matters to evaluate the worth of diverse properties, investments, business holdings, and other assets of considerable value to guide our clients through high-net-worth divorce proceedings.
Although we prefer to achieve amicable settlements, we are always prepared to litigate if necessary. Rest assured, our adept high-net-worth divorce lawyers are committed to safeguarding your property rights at the bargaining table or at trial.
Divorce mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method in which the couple works with a neutral third-party mediator to settle the divorce. The mediator facilitates discussions and guides the parties to an agreement, but does not advocate for either side.
This more civil and less expensive approach gives the couple more control over the outcome. At the same time, the couples must negotiate in good faith for mediation to be successful. At Aiello & DiFalco, our experienced New York City mediator’s track record of success will give you confidence, knowing that your divorce is in good hands.
