New York City Divorce Attorney

Legal Assistance for the Dissolution of Your Marriage

Ending a marriage can be an extremely grueling experience, especially when the couple cannot agree on the divorce terms. Divorces can easily turn into expensive and time-consuming legal battles that can create a great amount of stress and hardship to each party. By working with an experienced New York City family lawyer who handles divorce, you will likely be able to take some of the stress out of the process. At The Law Office of Tamara I. Jordan P.L.L.C., we fight aggressively to protect the best interests of our clients in the divorce process. We can help you negotiate with the other party to reach mutually favorable terms, or we can assist you with any legal battles in court when the other party is not willing to fairly cooperate.

Family Law Matters Stemming from Divorce

There are many different legal issues that need to be addressed and formalized during the divorce process. For example, the couple will need to determine how they will equitably divide their assets that are considered marital property. These assets could include things like their home, their money, and any other property that they acquired during the marriage. It will need to be decided whether either of the parties in the divorce needs to pay spousal support (or spousal maintenance). This occurs when one party pays his or her ex-spouse each month in order to help financially support that individual.

Things can become even more complex when the couple has children, as the divorcing parties need to determine their child custody and child support arrangements. Child custody addresses which parent the children will live with, as well as what each parent's decision-making rights will be over the children's lives. The court might grant custody to just one parent or to both. When a parent is ordered to pay child support, he or she must make monthly payments in order to help provide for the child's needs, such as food, shelter, clothing, education, and medical care. We can also assist family members, such as grandparents, with guardianship matters if the divorce causes legal issues concerning the best interests of the child.

The divorce process can go much faster and lead to lower costs if the couple is able to agree on the divorce terms outside of court. This type of divorce is called an uncontested divorce. When the couple cannot agree, the terms of the divorce must be decided in court, which is generally a lengthier and costlier process. Our law firm can assist you with either type of divorce.
