Family Law Cases We Handle
A trusted Queen's family law attorney from our team can assist you in the following areas of practice:
The state of New York recognizes some marriages as null and void if you obtain an annulment. There are specific factors that must be proven before obtaining an annulment, and if you are considering annulling your divorce, you need to speak with an attorney.
One of the biggest concerns for divorcing spouses is the issue concerning child custody. This disagreement is often referred to as a custody "battle," and you must approach this battle with an experienced representative. Our firm can help fight for your child's best interests.
Child support laws can be difficult to understand. At our firm, we can assist you quickly and efficiently in settling your child support case. Whether you are looking to obtain support or make a modification to an existing support order, our firm can help.
If one spouse disagrees with a portion of the divorce proceedings or the entire proceeding itself, the couple will enter into what is known as a contested divorce. These divorces require experienced representation in order to be successfully completed.
Any time a couple decides to separate through a legal divorce, they may face a stressful time in their lives. Even amicable divorces can reach a sudden disagreement. Contact our Queen's family lawyer immediately if you want to get a divorce or have been served divorce papers.
Victims of domestic violence and those who have been accused of domestic violence can turn to the Law Offices of Donald Mastrodomenico, P.C. We fully represent individuals on both sides of the law and can ensure that you receive a favorable resolution for your case.
Do you need a modification of an existing divorce decree? If so, working with our firm may be right for you. Divorce decrees are final, but an attorney can help you make modifications. Contact our firm to learn more.
Before you walk down the aisle, it is recommended that you talk to a lawyer about the benefits of a prenuptial agreement. Obtaining an agreement can protect you, your family, and your soon-to-be spouse from unforeseen legal complications.
A postnuptial agreement serves a similar purpose as a prenuptial agreement. If you could not obtain a prenuptial agreement, contact an attorney from our firm to learn about postnuptial documents and how they can benefit you.
The division of property and assets is often a roadblock for divorcing couples. When a judge determines how the property will be divided, they look into the length of the marriage and existing pre- or postnuptial agreements, among other factors. If you are seeking assistance, contact our firm right away.
If divorce is not an option for you, a legal separation agreement may be the answer. New York recognizes these documents as a contract between two parties that agree to remain married but live separately. Contact our family attorney in Queens today to determine if this is right for you!
Spousal support, sometimes referred to as alimony, is temporary financial maintenance that one spouse will pay to another. The amount and time for payments are often determined through mediation or by a family law judge.
These cases involve a scenario where both parties can agree on most of the terms of their divorce. When neither party is disagreeing with the divorce, an uncontested divorce will be entered. It is still important that an attorney presides over the case to obtain optimum results.
After establishing a child custody agreement, non-custodial parents will be given a visitation schedule. As a parent, you have the right to have access to your child, and if the custodial parent is denying your visitation rights, an attorney may be able to help.
Should I Tell My Divorce Lawyer Everything?
For the best interests of your case, it is advised to disclose all relevant information, even if you feel something is irrelevant. While disclosing everything personal is not advised or necessary, anything associated with your case should be transparent. For better case results, try the following:
- Provide a written history of your marriage. This provides a guideline for your attorney and highlights the critical events that took place during the marriage. Try organizing it chronologically, as it may become easier to explain. Don't forget to add any properties or assets that both of you accumulated together, as those will be accounted for during the property division.
- Be transparent as possible if you are experiencing abuse or have hidden assets; these are important things to address.
- Be ready to discuss issues such as child custody, spousal support, and other expectations for yourself and your attorney.
What Should I Look For in a Divorce Lawyer?
When you are faced with the task of locating a trusted and experienced divorce lawyer in New York, try looking for these traits:
- Communication - does the attorney speak and write well? Is it easy to present your case and receive constructive feedback?
- Experience - our family law attorney is not just experienced; he is trial-tested and has the skill to tailor a case to meet specific goals.
- Availability - It's important to be able to reach your lawyer without much hassle. We pride ourselves on maintaining contact with our clients regularly.
