Divorce issues we can help resolve:

No-Fault Divorce in New York

The state of New York enacted no-fault divorce in 2010, which means that you no longer have to live apart from your spouse for a period of one year under a separation agreement or alleged adultery, cruelty, abandonment, or other "fault" in the spouse. Under the new law, you can now divorce for "irreconcilable differences" without having to prove grounds or wait a long period. This speeds up the process and allows you to make practical settlements regarding your property, finances, and children.

Considering Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative divorce requires a level of commitment from all the parties involved to be successful. Parties to such a divorce do need to be collaborative. This can be difficult, however, because individuals are often blind to their own faults.

Unfortunately, there are certain types of personalities for which a collaborative divorce would likely be well-suited. However, if the two spouses are determined to make the process successful there is a better chance that the whole experience will be a positive one.

Even in a collaborative divorce, the needs of the children must be taken into consideration. In certain circumstances a child specialist is brought in to make certain the child's concerns are addressed.

The collaborative process to be successful will require adequate communication, understanding by both parties, and a safe environment where trust and respect are fostered. The attorneys involved also will need to bring in a feeling of trust for the process to work.

It does need to be kept in mind that there is no such thing as a divorce process is easy. This applies even to collaborative divorce. The process can often begin as a result of unhappy circumstances while eventually becoming more positive as it moves towards resolution.

Many good Poughkeepsie divorce attorneys will work towards a constructive divorce settlement that is amiable in nature. At the same time, one's interests need to be protected during the divorce. It is always a good idea to receive confidential legal advice to make certain that whatever divorce process is chosen is the right one.
