When it comes to your divorce and any related family law issues, case results matter. At Santoro, Carr PLLC, PLLC in New York, we understand that no two cases are alike, and promise to handle your divorce and any related matters with the skilled representation they deserve. Our group of NYC divorce attorneys has been putting the needs of clients and their families first for 20 years. We genuinely care about your issues and want to see you get the best possible result.
Skilled legal advocates assist with uncontested divorce
Even when both parties agree to all or most aspects of their divorce, it’s still wise to have a qualified lawyer on your team to guide you through the uncontested divorce process. You will need to meet certain conditions, such as agreeing on all property division, child custody and spousal support terms. Our divorce attorneys can help you negotiate these terms and ensure that your interests are reflected in the agreement. We will also go over the filing process, which is slightly different depending on how long you and your spouse have been living apart and if you have children under the age of 21.
Compassionate representation for child custody and visitation matters
New York family law courts will consider a variety of factors when making child custody decisions, but will ultimately decide based on the best interests of the child. To determine whether one parent should get sole custody or if a joint custody arrangement is best (in which both parents share legal and physical custody of the child), the stability of each parent, the age and gender of the child and the physical and mental health of the parents will be taken into account. Our attorneys will advocate for your right to raise your child with the goal of getting the custody and visitation order you deserve.
Knowledgeable attorneys handle all types of child support disputes
Many states, New York included, require that all parents contribute to the financial support of their children. Child support awards are determined independent of custody and visitation, and the court will consider various factors, such as each parent’s financial resources, the emotional and physical needs of the children and the child’s standard of living prior to the divorce. While most parents want to know that their children are taken care of, disputes can arise, and we are experienced with bringing fair resolutions to these matters.
Creative advocates handle cases involving the distribution of assets
When you file for divorce in New York, the courts will attempt to fairly — but not necessarily equally — distribute all marital assets between you and your spouse. These can be complex negotiations because your financial security and future could depend on the outcome. We have represented numerous clients throughout the equitable distribution process, which involves the splitting of assets such as bank accounts, stocks and even the marital home. Our goal is to identify and retain key assets that could be considered your personal property and therefore exempt from asset division.
