Most New York residents probably know someone who has been through a divorce. Or, maybe they have been through one themselves. As most people know, divorce cases can trigger a wide variety of emotions for the soon-to-be ex-spouses involved, but these cases also oftentimes involve a wide variety of legal issues that must be addressed as well. Pushing through all of the legal issues in a divorce case so that the parties can, eventually, get to the other side and move on with their separate lives can be a compelling goal.
An issue like property division, for example, can bog the parties down in back-and-forth negotiations over who gets what, and what, exactly, should be included as “marital property.” While the financial impact of a divorce and the property division process involved in the case can impact New York residents for many years after the case is over, it is important to stay focused on getting the best result while at the same time not wasting financial resources in the litigation process.
In divorce cases that involve children, child custody and child support can become the most acrimonious of issues. After all, all parents want what is best for their children. Unfortunately, those beliefs can differ among parents who have decided that they are better off separate than together. However, keeping the best interests of the children in mind during the divorce process can help the divorcing couple to potentially arrive at a result that works for everyone.
