Major Issues Dealt with During Divorce
Child Custody & Parenting Time
One of the most important (and difficult) issues that arise during divorce relates to child custody and parenting time. A plan must be created to determine how the children will be cared for, where they will live and how often they will see the noncustodial parent.
Occasionally, parents who are separating will be able to amicably agree on a parenting and custody plan. Other times, a court will have to decide. Regardless of your situation, KLG Law can help ensure that the agreement is fair and sound from a legal standpoint.
Each parent has a legal duty to provide financially for their child’s needs. In New York State, child support is determined based on numerous factors, including each parent’s income and the child’s education expenses.
KLG Law will help fight for a child support agreement that is fair for you, whether you’re paying or receiving.
Spousal maintenance, formerly known as “alimony,” refers to money that must be paid by one spouse to the other during or after the divorce.
The factors that determine spousal maintenance agreements are numerous and complex. KLG Law can help you navigate the nuanced spousal maintenance process effectively.
Equitable distribution is the allocation of marital assets and debts to each party after a couple has been divorced. Property is divided according to what the court deems to be fair, not necessarily equal.
Assets that can be affected often include the marital home, stocks/bonds, retirement accounts, business interests and so much more. KLG Law is a divorce lawyer with experience litigating divorce cases involving complex asset distribution, including businesses.
