In New York, property is divided between two divorcing parties according to the law of equitable distribution. This means that property and assets that are deemed marital are divided fairly but not necessarily equally. family law and divorce attorneys handle cases involving all types of assets, including real property, homes, vacation properties, bank accounts, retirement accounts, 401(k)s, employee benefits and others.
Also referred to as alimony or spousal support, spousal maintenance is an area of divorce law that has gone through recent changes. To ensure you fully understand your right to receive support payments or obligations in paying, it is best to consult with a lawyer. Courts take many factors into consideration when determining payment amounts, including the age of the parties, the length of the marriage, income-earning potential, contributions to the marriage and more.
