Parents must pay child care costs as well as basic child support

Every family in New York has a different financial situation which governs how they live their lives. What type of lifestyle the family lives and what the children are used to having all depends on the parent's income. Sometimes, one parent works and one stays home with the children, and in others both parents work. So, this means that in some situations the parents have to pay for child care as one of their monthly expenses and in other situations they do not have child care costs.

How are pensions divided in a divorce?

Most people in New York would like to retire at some point in time. However, in order to do that they need to save money while they are working and earning a paycheck. Many people have 401(k)s, IRAs and other types of individual retirement accounts. Others have pensions which pay a benefit to the worker, generally based on years of service. Pensions are somewhat unique in the fact that the worker generally cannot receive any of the money until they retire, unlike other individual retirement accounts.

How military deployment affects child custody

People in New York have many different jobs and some of those jobs require the person to travel. This can be hard on both children and parents, but travel for most jobs is usually relatively short-term. However, those in the military have a very unique job and when they have to travel, they are usually gone for many months and even years at a time. Therefore, military deployment creates a very difficult situation when parents have joint child custody and the parent in the military has parenting time.

Helping couples reach agreements in divorce

There are many reasons that people in New York go through divorces. There may be infidelities by one of the spouse, there could be emotional or physical abuse, substance abuse issues or the couple may simply no longer love each other and need to end the relationship. However, no matter why a couple may divorce, there is one thing in common in most divorces: the couple is no longer getting along with each other. This can make the divorce process much more difficult and contentious.
