Divorce Attorney Representing Clients on Long Island
Divorce will surely raise concerns about your financial future and the well-being of your children. Let our attorneys address those concerns by helping you resolve issues such as:
Division of Property
New York is an equitable distribution state when dividing marital property. In short, real estate, bank accounts, investments, retirement accounts, debts, and other assets acquired during the marriage must be divided fairly but not necessarily evenly. Disputes can arise when either party fails to bargain in good faith or the couple has not created a Prenuptial Agreement. Our divorce attorney will help you navigate the process and work to protect your property rights.
Spousal Maintenance (Alimony)
Unless the couple has an agreement in place, the court may award temporary or post-divorce maintenance, but spousal maintenance is not guaranteed. Safeguarding your finances in a divorce requires the trustworthy advice and guidance our firm provides.
Co-parenting can be challenging for many couples on Long Island, regardless of marital status. Working with our capable child custody attorney can help you reach a real-world arrangement and preserve the bond with your child.
All parents, whether or not they are married, must provide for their children financially. Generally, the parent who earns more pays child support to the other; however, support determinations are based on the income of both parents, the number of children involved, and the custody arrangements. Our attorney understands the formula for calculating child support and will work to ensure that your child has the financial resources they need and deserve.
If your divorce involves substantial assets valued at more than $1 million, turn to The Saul Law Firm. We have extensive experience with high-net-worth divorce cases involving multiple properties, investments, business interests, and other high-value assets. We regularly collaborate with financial professionals to assess marital assets and we will leverage their expertise to help you arrive at a fair and equitable distribution. We understand what is at stake and we will protect your property rights at the bargaining table or at trial.
Certified Matrimonial Mediator For Couples
Our lead attorney, Gail B. Saul, is a Certified Matrimonial Mediator who helps clients navigate divorce mediation. This process involves working with a neutral mediator to settle the divorce. In her role as a mediator, Gail does not represent either party. Instead, she facilitates discussions and guides the parties to an agreement.
Ultimately, mediation is more civil, cost-effective, and less contentious than a litigated divorce and gives the parties more control over decision-making and the outcome. Whether you need the services of a mediator or attorney to review a mediated agreement, you can trust Gail Saul to protect your interests.
