A divorce case in Hudson Valley area or in the New York State in general can be fairly simple if both the husband and the wife want to get divorced and they do not have any disagreements about their finances or children. If they have children together, the parents may already have a Family
Court order(s) that decides who has custody and/or visitation and who pays child support. If they also do not have money, property or debt to divide, they may be able to get divorced in less than a year’s time and without hiring
lawyers. People call this kind of case an “uncontested” divorce.
It’s not a good idea to try to start a divorce case without a lawyer.
This is because you must provide a lot of information to the court on many different forms and because there are many things involved in ending most marriages. New York divorce laws are put in place for both the Plaintiff and the Defendant to receive a fair divorce. Hiring a family attorney or mediator in your area is the best way to ensure that this happens.
An experienced attorney will make sure your rights are protected and make sure at the same time that you are not taken advantage of by your ex-partner and her/his attorney.
Divorce lawyers come in all shapes, sizes & colors. When choosing the right Poughkeepsie divorce attorney for you, make sure you ask the right questions.
