Fighting for Your Fair Share of the Marital Property
A knowledgeable attorney can help you protect your rights to ownership in marital property. At Librett Friedland, LLP, we are adept at identifying and categorizing all types of marital property, including:
- Retirement accounts
- Personal property
New York is an equitable distribution state, which means that assets acquired during the marriage are divided in a fair, but not necessarily equal, manner. When distribution is unequal, these matters can become very complex as both sides fight for ownership of the marital assets. Our divorce attorneys have an in-depth understanding of New York law, so they are able to sort through these complex issues, and fight for the rights of our clients.
Spousal Support (Alimony) Issues
Spousal support (also known as spousal maintenance or alimony) is a contentious issue often faced by divorcing spouses. The income and financial circumstances of both spouses are taken into account when determining the amount of spousal maintenance.
Whether you are the spouse seeking support, or your former spouse is seeking support from you, an experienced family law attorney can negotiate on your behalf to ensure that your rights are protected. Our firm has been dealing with these matters since 1976, and our attorneys know how to help our clients achieve their goals.
