Deciding to pursue a divorce is often a difficult decision for New York residents. Most people have a plan and it gives them comfort-they know what they want to achieve and how to go about achieving it. The decision to divorce often throws a curveball into the situation and also leaves people confused-what are they supposed to do next and how does one achieve a divorce?
Everyone’s situation is different-the divorce agreement that worked for the person who lives down the hall may not work for you and that is important to keep in mind as people line up to give advice on how to go about the divorce.
There are important family law decisions that need to be made and the consequences of decisions made now can reverberate for years to come. For example, child support awards should factor in the cost of college and property division decisions should be made in light of the value of not just physical property, but also physical property that has sentimental value. The road to a divorce is often confusing and overwhelming and going on it alone can lead to uncertainty. Having an experienced lawyer, like the ones at the Hobika Law Firm, guiding one through the process can help reduce uncertainty.
