Before a divorce can be finalized, there are certain issues that must be
resolved between you and your spouse. These issues include but are not
limited to the following:
- Child support
- Child custody
- Father's rights
- Parenting schedule
- Division of assets
- Separation agreements
At the Law Offices of Susan A. Kassel, P.C., we understand that the divorce
process can be emotionally exhausting and stressful. However, when you
retain our representation, we will fight to
achieve your goals in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. Our mission is to help you obtain the outcome you deserve and walk away
from your divorce case with an amicable relationship with your ex-spouse.
In October of 2010, the state of New York became the 50th state in the
United States to enact no-fault divorce. Under this law, you may obtain
a no-fault divorce after you and your spouse have been separated for 18
consecutive months. Essentially, a no-fault divorce entails that the spouse
pursuing a divorce does not have to prove grounds for the divorce. Each
spouse has the ability to request that their marriage be dissolved simply
because that is what they desire.
If you are seeking a fault-based divorce, the legal proceedings will be
expedited and you must prove the following:
- Your spouse committed adultery
- Your spouse treated you with extreme cruelty
- Your spouse abandoned you for one year or longer
- You spouse has been institutionalized for a mental illness
- Your spouse is addicted to narcotics or other controlled substances
- Your spouse has been imprisoned for three years or more during the marriage
