Causes for divorce are different for every couple

Making the decision to end a marriage is not one most couples in New York will make lightly. This can be a gut-wrenching decision, especially if children are involved -- as this choice will forever change the family dynamic. While there are many causes for divorce, the intricate details are different for every couple and may affect the ability to negotiate a fair settlement in a timely manner.

Achieving desirable child custody arrangements may require help

Whether you are getting a divorce, splitting from a life partner or are a single parent, custody issues can seem overwhelming. Child custody arrangements can be difficult to negotiate, especially since the outcome will have a significant impact on children and the relationships they have with each parent. While some parents in New York are able to amicably agree on child custody, others may need a little help in order to achieve a desirable result.

Property division in divorce may be a difficult subject to tackle

While every divorce is unique and has its own set of challenges, one thing they all usually have in common is the need to divide marital property. For some, this property may be items obtained during the course of the marriage -- that one spouse or the other may wish to keep; for others, this can also include real estate. As many New York residents know, tackling real estate matters in divorce can be a challenge, and multiple factors may need to be considered before any decisions are finalized.

Don't let negative emotions rule family law cases

While many legal claims can be filed without emotional attachments, emotions are harder to control when those legal proceedings pertain to one's family. Family law cases, particularly divorce proceedings, are difficult on everyone involved; however, it is possible to get through them peacefully and still achieve a fair and balanced settlement. Couples in New York that are open, positive and willing to negotiate can help finalize their divorce proceedings as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Protecting business interests during divorce

Divorce rates are still relatively high. According to the American Psychological Association, approximately 40 to 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. This process can be difficult to navigate, as each spouse may see the division of marital property and assets very differently. For those in New York who own their own business, there may be very valid concerns about how to protect that business from the effects of divorce.
