Regardless of how long one has been married to their partner, the decision to end the marriage is rarely an easy one for New York residents to make. Separating one's financial and emotional life from another person is a difficult process, and if there are children involved, it can end up being even more difficult. But, once couples make the decision to divorce, they often want to get through it as quickly as possible, so they can move on and try to put their life back together. However, important decisions such as child custody and visitation, as mentioned in last week's blog have to be made and are often contentious, delaying the process.
Since one's relationship with one's children is on the line, it is important to understand the family law issues in play-what are the factors affecting child custody, visitation and support and how does one navigate the legal system. At these times, it is beneficial to have someone well-versed in the law on one's side.
