Different states, different divorce laws

When looking to dissolve a marriage, one will have to look at the rules of the state in which he or she lives. Divorce laws are not governed at the federal level. Instead, every state has primary control over what divorce laws it deems appropriate. For those seeking divorce in New York, legal counsel can shed light on current divorce laws and how they will affect individual situations.

When getting a divorce, how does the state view property?

Every state has different laws regarding property division and marriage dissolution. In New York, when getting a divorce, property is subject to equitable division laws. This means that each spouse should be able to walk away from the marriage with a fair share of marital assets and anything he or she personally brought to the table before the marriage was made official.

Relocating when a child custody order is involved

Change is just about the only constant thing in life. Sometimes opportunities fall into our laps, and other times we have to go in search of the things that will make our lives better. We no longer live in a world where what is best for us can always be found in our local community. Relocating is sometimes necessary, but making a move when a child custody order is involved can be difficult for parents, whether they reside in New York or elsewhere.

What do employers have to do with paying child support?

In New York, just as in many other states, those who are ordered to make child support payments often have that money withheld from their pay. Employers play a big role in making sure that money for child support is redirected to support services, where it is then passed on to custodial parents. How does this process get started?
