How a prenuptial agreement can help in a high asset divorce

During the divorce process there are many aspects of married life that must be separated for the newly single life. This includes who will have custody of the children and when each parent will see them, and how they will divide marital property.

How a parent's drug or alcohol abuse can affect child custody

Drug and alcohol abuse can have severe consequences for parents in New York, including effecting their relationship with their children. If the parent is going through a divorce or child custody matter it can also affect their ability to have custody of their children. There are a number of factors that are analyzed when determining which parent will have custody, and one of these factors is whether the parent abuses alcohol or drugs. These abuses can also affect how some of the other factors are analyzed as well.

How long do you have to pay child support in New York?

There are many people in New York who have children, but who are no longer in a relationship with the other parent. This could be because of a divorce or because they were never married to the other parent. If the parent does not have custody, they may have to pay child support to the other parent. Basic child support is determined based on the income of the parents, and the non-custodial parent pays a percentage of income to the other parent based on how many children the couple has together.

Why divorce mediation may be useful for child custody decisions

There are many decisions that parents in New York have to make for their children as they raise them. They have to make decisions regarding what schools they will go to and other education-related decisions. They also have to make medical decisions for the children, such as which doctors they will go to. They also decide which religion they will raise their children in, as well as many other daily decisions about what they eat, what they wear and where they will go.
