Are you preparing to file for divorce in Brooklyn? If so, there are numerous factors you must take into consideration before doing so. At Coffinas & Lusthaus, P.C., the team of attorneys is dedicated to assisting clients through their divorce and other family law proceedings. In New York, one or both spouses must reside in the state for at least one year before they can file for divorce. You can file for divorce based on fault or no-fault grounds, or based on the fact that you and your spouse have been separated for at least 12 months. New York is an equitable division state, which means that each spouse owns the income they earn during the marriage, and has the right to manage any property that is in their name alone. At the time of divorce however, the judge will divide the property in a way they consider to be fair—even if it is not necessarily equal. No matter what type of divorce your situation calls for or how complex matters may seem, the team is prepared to represent you. Call Coffinas & Lusthaus, P.C. at (888)539-1887 to schedule your consultation with a Brooklyn divorce attorney.
