Deciding on the child support amount in a New York court-Part I

New York residents may agree that a divorce can have a terrible effect on children. As their parents fight, children may feel insecure. What many parents do not realize is that although they might have fallen out of love with each other, their children might still have the desire for their parents to live together under the same roof. Unfortunately, this often is not possible. Hence, in the best interest of the child, the court typically orders one parent to have legal custody of the child and orders the other parent to pay child support.

Some myths in the divorce mediation process-Part I

Facing divorce can be one of the most difficult things a person can face in his or her life. The person may feel overwhelmed and plagued by questions. Is litigation the best solution or should divorce mediation be utilized? When should the divorce process be initiated? What the future going to look like? Typically, mediation can help divorcing parties save time, money, and negative animosity.

Collaborative approach may be better in a high-asset divorce

A high-asset divorce presents a range of complex issues. There is a requirement of confidentiality and forensic analysis also has to be handled. Those are important considerations when the divorce involved is a high-asset divorce. That applies everywhere in the country, including New York.

How does New York's child support enforcement unit help?

New York State residents may agree that divorce is hard on children. While their parents can look forward to a new life after divorce, children often do not look at it in that way. Children often face insecurities and it is not uncommon for them to wonder who will raise them and where they will live. Hence, in the best interest of the child, the court typically orders the non-custodial parent to pay child support.
