Do I Need a Lawyer for My Divorce?

Even if you think your divorce will be uncontested, you should meet with our knowledgeable attorneys to discuss how the process works and to ensure that your legal paperwork is submitted properly. If you and your spouse have issues which must be resolved before a divorce can be finalized, you will need the counsel of our trusted and experienced attorneys.

In addition, our friendly staff stands by to support your case. From the moment you call our firm to schedule an initial consultation to the conclusion of your matter, you can trust that all of our skilled professionals at Family First Law Group can guide you, offering compassionate assistance and personalized assistance throughout your case.

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. Family First Law Group offers mediation services if you are struggling to find resolution in your divorce.
