Informative Legal Assistance for Complex Family Law Cases in New York City

Family law court orders are final unless you can show a substantial change of circumstances. This includes the loss of a job, a relocation, remarriage, or other significant life event. Thus, it is important to fully understand the issues of your case before agreeing to terms that could affect your financial stability and relationship with your children. Our family lawyer can analyze your situation and discuss the factors of your case so you can make informed legal decisions that are in your best interests.

Complex issues involved in family law matters include:

  • Division of assets and property
  • Division of debts and liabilities
  • Spousal support
  • Child custody and visitation schedules
  • Other financial considerations

If you seek a solution through informal mediation, you will need to discuss the important issues directly with the other party to reach a conclusion. However, if there is disagreement or conflict involved, your case may go to trial. During litigation, it is necessary to provide evidence in support of your claim, and the court will issue a binding legal decision that must be upheld by both parties.
