Divorce vs Separation
Clients will ask us as Long Island Divorce Lawyers about the possibility of obtaining a separation instead of a divorce. In certain situations, separations may be preferable. Another example we often get asked as Long Island Divorce Lawyers is if one party wanted to remain on the other party’s health insurance benefits. Separated parties are entitled to remain on each other’s health insurance benefits so long as they remain married. If you have any questions about whether or not to a get separated or divorced, contact our experienced Long Island Divorce Lawyers.
Contested Divorce vs Uncontested Divorce
In an Uncontested Divorce both parties are able to reach an agreement on issues in a divorce case. The main divorce issues are grounds for divorce, for division of assets, child custody & visitation, child support and spousal maintenance or support. We advise clients as Long Island Divorce Lawyers that if an agreement on all these issues is reached, the parties enter into a written agreement called the stipulation of settlement.
If both parties are unable to reach an agreement, the divorce becomes a contested divorce. In a contested divorce, both parties are required to conduct research into each other’s assets prior to both parties making court appearances. As Long Island Divorce Lawyers we suggest that whenever possible, you want to come to an agreement on all the divorce issues. If you have a question about a contested or uncontested divorce, contact our experienced Long Island Divorce Lawyers.
What is a Collaborative Divorce?
Our Long Island Divorce Lawyers often handle collaborative divorces. In a collaborative divorce both parties each retain an attorney for the purpose of conducting settlement negotiations and attempting to achieve a resolution without involving the court. A Collaborative Divorce can be a good option if you have a fairly complicated divorce. If you have a question about a collaborative divorce, contact our experienced Long Island Divorce Lawyers.
