Factors Used To Determine Property Division In New York

The effective divorce lawyer should have courtroom skills, if only to motivate the other spouse to the wisdom of settlement.

This divorce lawyer should also be as adept in framing and chiseling the contours of the family's post-divorce resources and lifestyle.

I am divorce and family law attorney Robert G. Smith. I have been successfully negotiating and litigating the division of marital assets and property for my New York high net worth divorce clients for more than 40 years.

I know how to be effective in the New York court system. As a native New Yorker, I understand the values that resonate with the decision-makers; I speak the language of the courts. I have the skill to provide you with the insight you need to get the best possible outcome in the divorce process.

Methods Of Marital Property Distribution That Can Benefit You

The New York legislature has provided 14 main statutory factors for courts to consider regarding equitable division of assets between divorcing spouses, including:

  • Income of the spouses
  • Future earning capacity
  • Length of the marriage
  • Tax consequences
  • Business valuation

When you begin divorce proceedings, you are initiating what may prove to be a significantly stressful event in your life. I know these property division factors well. I am well-versed with the New York court system, and I can help you to predict and consider the possible outcome of decisions you may be considering. I have been down this road before. I will provide you with valuable counsel as you proceed.
