Long Island Divorce Law Attorney

A decision to pursue divorce is not generally arrived at easily. It represents a profound and stressful chapter in an individual’s life and it is recommended that you seek out and speak with an attorney that is capable of sorting through the facts in your married life and the factors at law to develop an effective strategy. Although the decision to divorce is a first step, it is a very important one that leads to examination of all the legal marital issues relevant to divorce. While sometimes spouses may be able to speak with each other concerning their difficulties and negotiate a fair and equitable settlement, unfortunately, it is a rare occurrence. When you are enmeshed in difficult legal issues, you must consider the ramifications of making decisions without first consulting with legal counsel because if the first steps are well planned, the balance of the divorce process is likely to be negatively impacted.

After your meeting at Jane K, Cristal, P.C., you will feel reassured concerning which path you wish to follow.

Jane Cristal’s extensive experience and range of legal capabilities will help you progress through the divorce process in an informed and confident manner. She will negotiate, litigate, and advocate for your best interests at every step.

She will pay attention to your articulated needs and she will suggest to you where the issues remain and what issues still need to be addressed before a settlement agreement can be signed.

Sometimes, after learning about the facts and circumstances of your matter, she may suggest that you are a candidate for divorce mediation, another approach to divorce that has been part of Jane Cristal’s practice for over thirty (30) years.

And, where the issue impacts the sensitive issues surrounding the children, Ms. Cristal will advocate tirelessly to secure the proper custody arrangement, parental access and, if needed, grandparent rights.
