Do I Need To Hire 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 Empire Law 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. Empire Law offers mediation services if you are struggling to find resolution in your divorce.

    "I would recommend this law firm to anyone. They are AWESOME."
    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.

    "They do what they say they are going to do and they will fight for your best interest. Please trust their judgment as it is a difficult process for everyone."
    I have went through a very difficult process. I went through two attorneys before meeting the Wayne Crowe Jr staff. I am so appreciative that I had the opportunity to have their staff work for me. I wish that I would have went to them first. Their staff Wayne, Caroline, Lee, Brian and Scott were all hands on and wonderful people. They not only cleaned up the mess the previous attorneys made. They were diligent, understanding and compassionate. I had the pleasure of having Caroline represent me and she is amazing.

    "The law firm of Wayne F. Crowe provided me with the legal support and strength I needed during my divorce."
    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.
