Helping You with Every Aspect of Your Divorce
Grounds for divorce are no longer an issue in the state of New York, and most couples file what is known as a “no-fault” divorce. However, there are many important matters which must be resolved before your case can be finalized. This is where a highly skilled and experienced divorce and family law attorney is necessary.
Mr. Martin has over four decades of experience handling all different types of divorces, from straightforward uncontested divorces to highly complex and hotly contested cases. He can craft a divorce agreement that addresses all of the important issues which must be resolved, including:
- Spousal support (maintenance)
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Division of marital property and all related financial issues
In addition, Mr. Martin can help you with any modifications of divorce agreements and judgements that are necessary down the road if your circumstances change significantly. If your spouse fails to comply with the terms of your divorce agreement, he can assist you with enforcement proceedings as well.
Helping You Get a Fresh Start
While divorce may officially end your marriage, it’s also an opportunity for you and your children to start over and build a new life together. The best way to facilitate a smooth transition to post-divorced life is to try and work amicably with your ex-spouse in order to craft a settlement agreement that is fair for everyone involved.
Whenever possible, Mr. Martin will take this approach. Striving to settle all issues amicably will also reduce the time, acrimony, and costs associated with your divorce.
This is particularly crucial when young children are involved. Mr. Martin is a father of two, and he understands the importance of being able to work cooperatively with your spouse on co-parenting issues down the road. He will always strive to help you maintain an amicable, working relationship with your spouse since this is ultimately in the best interests of your children.
However, there are some instances where an amicable resolution to your divorce isn’t possible. In these cases, Mr. Martin is a seasoned litigator who is prepared to fight aggressively in court to protect the best interests of you and your children.
