Matrimonial (Divorce) Law is a constantly changing and evolving area of law. There are substantive and procedural aspects in this highly sensitive area of law.
Matrimonial, or “Divorce” Law is governed by the Domestic Relations Law of the State of New York. This complex area of law deals with divorce, separation, distribution of marital assets, and perhaps most important of all, issues of child custody and parental visitation rights, along with child support. It is a constantly changing and evolving area of law, and requires the attorneys who concentrate in this area to stay vigilant regarding changes in the substantive and procedural aspects of this highly sensitive area of law.
It is essential that you select an attorney who is skilled and experienced enough to handle your divorce matter. That attorney must be first of all, knowledgeable, current, and completely capable to handle your divorce or separation. It requires the practitioner to be not only an expert as to the law itself, but to be sensitive, compassionate and understanding, yet at the same time to posses the ability to remain objective enough to inform and reassure the client of how the law relates to their particular divorce matter. All areas of law in which an attorney practices requires the utmost advocacy and expertise on behalf of the client, yet Matrimonial Law holds the attorney to an even higher standard, because a divorce matter goes to the very essence of the client’s life.
