Handling Every Aspect of Your Divorce

Every divorce case is different and often complicated, even when someone is going through an uncontested divorce. You may be worried about the unknown and what post-divorce life will be like. Our goal is to help you navigate every aspect of the divorce process.

We can help you with any of the following matters:

  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Visitation
  • Division of property
  • Alimony/spousal support
  • Temporary maintenance
  • Same-sex divorce

Division of Property

One of the primary aspects of any divorce is the division of property. This is how all of the "stuff" you and your spouse have accumulated—from the house to the cars to the retirement accounts to the TV—will be divided. Only "marital property" will be divided or, in other words, any property that was accumulated during the marriage or purchased with income accumulated during the marriage. Separate property, or property owned by one spouse prior to the marriage, will not be divided.

Same-Sex Divorce

In June 2015—long overdue—the US Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. Now that same-sex couples have a legally recognized right to marry, it follows that they also have all the equitable distribution rights in divorce and separation codified in New York’s Domestic Relations Law. These rights include:

  • Child custody and child support
  • Property, asset, and debt division (“equitable distribution”)
  • Maintenance (formerly called “alimony”)

Same-sex couples often face additional challenges in divorce and custody because of the careful consideration necessary in dividing assets and debts that were incurred prior to the legal date of marriage. Determining child custody, visitation, and support can also be difficult for the same reason. The team at Jonna Spilbor Law not only has the experience necessary to handle the divorce challenges facing same-sex couples, but we handle it all with heart and compassion.
