New York is a no-fault divorce state. As a result, individuals no longer have to prove fault to obtain a divorce. Before you can obtain a divorce, however, you and your spouse will need to resolve ancillary issues, including property division, child custody and child support, among others. If you represent yourself in your divorce, your immediate concerns and emotional state may lead you to make mistakes that prevent you from securing an agreement that serves your long-term interests.
The terms of your divorce agreement are final. There are, however, limited circumstances when you can modify terms of your divorce settlement, so it is important to have your interests advocated for. This way opportunity to work out agreements in your favor is not missed.
At Trotto Law Firm, P.C., our legal professionals use foresight to help you through filing for divorce and to obtain terms that benefit you now and in the future. Experience has taught us to anticipate the arguments opposing counsel will make and tailor our negotiation strategy accordingly.
