Divorce & Separation


Divorce is a significant legal matter. Over 50% of marriages end in divorce and when that happens, having the right legal support is vital. The Law Offices of Susan A. Kassel, P.C. understands what is at stake when individuals face a stressful and uncertain road.

Division of Assets

The division of marital property is one of the greatest sources of conflict between spouses facing divorce. While some spouses clearly have more stake in assets than their partners, deciding who should own what pieces of property can become ambiguous. Because New York is an “equitable division” state, it is up to the courts to divide this shared marital property in a way that it deems fair.

High-Income Divorces

Divorce is a complicated matter. When assets, money, and debts increase, an already complicated matter becomes overwhelming. High-income divorces involve couples with combined assets and finances that are greater than $1 million. High net worth individuals deserve the legal support of an experienced and effective attorney.

Legal Separation

When a couple no longer wants to continue a marriage but divorce is not an option, a legal separation may be your solution. There are many situations that call for a legal separation. Whether for religious or financial reasons, legal separation can help a couple move on, but in a limited way. It is important that the couple retains the quality legal support when deciding to separate in the state of New York.


When a divorce is complete, orders handed down by the court must be followed. It is imperative that you do as the court mandates or you could face further legal issues. Though a court makes decisions in an equitable fashion, they cannot see into the future. Courts understand their limitations to make decisions on the facts in front of them and are open to requests for modifications. Furthermore, courts are available to help if one party ignores an order and the other needs help to enforce it.

Spousal Maintenance

Alimony, also known as spousal maintenance, is a key factor in many divorces. If you are preparing for a divorce and are concerned about your spousal support determination, The Law Offices of Susan A. Kassel, P. C. is ready to hear from you.

Uncontested Divorce

Due to its simplistic, quiet, and dignified nature, an uncontested divorce is the most common form of divorce in the state of New York. Couples who are pursuing an uncontested divorce often have little to no disagreements regarding the terms and conditions of their divorce.

Prenuptial Agreements 

When a couple makes the decision to take their relationship to the next level, they often start discussing finances and marriage. Though no one wants to think about the end of a marriage before it even begins, it is important to take steps to protect one’s assets. Clients going through a divorce may find themselves battling over issues like alimony and property distribution. However, a prenuptial agreement can let a budding relationship focus on the important things.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
