Am I Eligible to File for Divorce?
In order to be eligible for a divorce, you and / or your spouse must have resided in the state of New York for a specified and continuous period of time, usually for one year. The Supreme Court of the State of New York is the only court that can legally grant you a divorce. Family courts, however, handle cases involving child custody, visitation rights, and child support.
In addition to divorce, you may find that legal separation or mediation are good alternative dispute resolution methods for your situation. These may be done outside the courtroom, saving you the time, expense, and stress of hostile divorce litigation. Empire Law offers mediation services if you are struggling to find resolution in your divorce.

I'm not fond of attorneys but this guy is great. He'll answer your question(s) and there's no pressure of signing any contact. He'll tell you what the family court law is and he will fight for the best interest. This attorney is amazing. I will keep his name and telephone number on my iPhone and will recommend him to everyone that I know who would need his services. Don't think twice, this is the man.- H. Montero

My divorce was smooth and I am extremely happy with the settlement. After the divorce Wayne and his team also provided me with the legal support I needed to terminate my child support obligations and gain sole custody of my children. I am very pleased with the services provided and the outcome could not have been any better.- Ranjee R.
Wayne and his team are absolutely the best!!! I can't rave enough about this law firm. When I first met Wayne he listen to my concerns and put my worries at rest. Initially I needed help with what I thought would be a simply child support case. Two years later I'm still going back and forth with this issue. My child's father is a real creep and tried his very best to hide his income. Geoffrey Greenless was able to see through deceit. Jeff (for short) ordered my copies of his bank accounts and went through each transaction with a fine toothed comb. Jeff presented the evidence in such a way the judge had no choice but to dismiss the fraudulent motion. Wayne and Jeff have always been honest and upfront. They've always made me feel like I was on the winning team. I’m able to reach Jeff or Wayne via email, phone or text message. Jeff has never been absent or late to any of my scheduled court dates. I would recommend this law firm to anyone. They are AWESOME.- Crystal M.
Wayne F. Crowe and his staff were top notch. He is as professional as they come. They were always available to us with answers to our questions and concerns. It was an honor to have one of his staff Justin represent my husbands on his child support case. We are satisfied with what he accomplished. We would highly recommend them.- Caroline L.
Good customer service and supportive agents. I'm happy and will recommended The law Firm. Thank you- Edith K.
