When individuals get married and begin investing emotionally and financially in their future with their spouse, they typically expect that their marriage will last forever. However, it is an unfortunate reality of life that circumstances change and people grow apart, oftentimes resulting marriage dissolution. For many, this is the first time they have to go through something emotionally devastating and unsettling. With their future in flux, many New York residents may not know what steps to take once a marriage sours. Additionally, these individuals may find themselves overwhelmed, as this may be the first time they are getting exposed to the complicated laws surrounding divorce and related issues, such as property division and alimony.
If one is blindsided by the news that her spouse is divorcing her, she might consider agreeing to her former spouse's divorce settlement offer without taking into account what her own needs may be in the future. Settling important family law issues without consideration could leave an individual at risk of financial instability post-divorce. This risk can increase when individuals are unaware that they may be entitled to certain assets.
In this situation, it is helpful to have skilled attorneys by one's side, someone who is willing to advocate for one's best interests and work for the best possible outcome given the situation at hand. At the Hobika Law Firm, we understand that every divorce is different and everyone is looking for a different outcome. This is why we work closely with our clients to understand their needs and ambitions for the future, utilizing those discussions to build an individualized legal strategy that seeks to further our clients' best interests.
