Divorce impacts each member of a family differently. Understanding the impacts on children, financial responsibilities, custody issues, and property and debt division are all in the midst of the emotional stress of divorce. The process requires the professional advice and guidance of an experienced New York City divorce attorney.
At the Brooklyn Law Offices of David J. Hernandez & Associates, our lawyers have over 40 years of combined legal experience providing clients with a clear understanding of New York divorce laws. We make it a priority in each case to inform our clients of what they can expect and how to protect their interests and the best interests of their children.
We represent clients throughout the New York City area, including Brooklyn, Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, and the surrounding areas of New York and New Jersey.
NYC Divorce Attorneys
We emphasize the importance of providing thorough and accurate financial information for both you and your spouse. Information regarding tax returns, credit card bills, income statements, investments, bank records, retirement plans (401(k) plans, pensions, and stock portfolios), boats, sailboats or recreational possessions, professional licenses, vacation properties, hidden assets, and other information is essential.
Importance of Thorough Preparation and Documentation
Failure to provide thorough documentation of financial records and assets could result in the court favoring your spouse's documentation, which might put his or her position in better standing with the court. The documentation provided by each party significantly impacts the court's determination of major issues, such as:
- Child custody
- Child support payments
- Spousal support payments
- Debt allocation
- Property division
- Other family law issues
Maintaining Civility and Containing Costs in Divorce
Even a peaceful divorce between spouses who can agree on most issues can turn volatile. Issues involving money or children such as property division and custody issues can turn the tone of your divorce on a dime. We work hard to find common ground and resolve differences before they become contentious and lead to time-consuming, expensive litigation, but we are prepared to aggressively defend your case under any circumstances. If it is in the best interest of your case, we will expose information your ex-spouse would rather keep out of court.
