Common Family Law Matters Faced by Families in New York that Our Family Law Attorneys in Queens County, NY Can Assist With
At the Choi Law Firm, our experienced family law attorneys in Queens County, NY can help you with divorce-related issues and challenges that involve the following.
This includes everything from serving papers to a spouse, responding to a notice of divorce from your spouse, getting your affairs in order, and resolving issues as amicably as possible outside the court. However, rest assured that we will fight for your rights in courtroom proceedings as well, if needed.
Child custody matters are some of the most sensitive and heartbreaking realities of any divorce case. Our team will help you and your spouse work toward a fair and acceptable arrangement, one that takes into account physical and/or legal custody, parenting schedules, amending or enforcing existing orders, and disputes regarding decisions such as further education or healthcare.
There are no fixed rules or payment schedules for child support, which makes reaching a fair figure for child support payments such a contentious part of any divorce. While New York State’s child support standards chart provides approximations of what child support payments may be, any rulings must include considerations for the Family Court Act, which covers everything from the personal well-being of the parent or caretaker to their financial standing, the age of the children, and their caretaking needs.
Calculating alimony is similar to calculating child support. A lot of it comes down to the determination of the court. For alimony, some of the factors that come into play include the length of the marriage that is being terminated; the earning capacity, age, and health of each person; whether one spouse contributed to or sacrificed for the education, training, or career of the other; and how any shared assets are being divided.
The Equitable Distribution of Property
In New York, marital assets must be equitably distributed in a divorce. This does not necessarily mean all assets are split 50-50; the court or your New York divorce lawyers will review your circumstances, income, and economic situation to determine a fair split for both parties.
Domestic Violence and Related Crimes
Our family law attorneys in Queens County, NY will also help you in cases involving civil domestic violence, restraining orders, abuse, threatening behavior, and even cases involving fraud, adultery, and other actions that can have an impact on your divorce proceedings and/or your post-divorce life.
