In New York State, for there to be a divorce, there must be a legal basis for that divorce. New York is not a "No Fault" State. Grounds for divorce typically are abandonment, cruel and inhuman treatment, adultery, or having a separation agreement in existence for one or more years. After establishing a basis for the divorce, the parties or the Court must resolve issues of custody and visitation, child support, the division of marital property, and determination of whether someone should pay maintenance. Kalil & Eisenhut, LLC understands what is at stake, and is well prepared to effectively advocate the goals that our clients set. Our knowledge and experience in the field enables us to assess what a fair settlement is, and to assist our clients in setting and meeting realistic expectations.
