New York Divorce Lawyers
Hiring reliable legal representation during a divorce or legal separation is a critical investment that will ease your mind about your financial situation moving forward. Your divorce lawyer can provide valuable legal guidance and help you explore your options for working toward the most favorable outcome in the divorce proceedings, all while protecting your best interests.
If all parties are agreeable and willing to collaborate civilly, your divorce lawyers can approach alternative dispute resolution to avoid a lengthy and costly divorce case in the NY Supreme Court. Mediation can often shorten the timeframe of a divorce case and reduce court costs, making it one of the most popular alternative dispute resolution methods in New York. It also keeps the couple’s affairs in a private setting while they work toward mutually agreeable terms. Through mediation or the use of another collaborative divorce method, uncontested divorces can sometimes be completed in far less time than a fully litigated matter. Attorney Louis Newman is a seasoned expert in dispute resolution methods.
When negotiation is impossible and litigation is necessary, attorney Louis Newman has decades of experience fighting for his clients in highly contested divorce cases. His aggressive methods have helped to obtain favorable outcomes as far as property division, child custody, and support orders on behalf of his clients, making him a highly coveted divorce attorney for professional athletes, celebrities, and even fellow legal professionals in New York State.
The Newman Law Group is ready to help you navigate your divorce proceedings. Our goal is to ensure the most favorable outcome for you in all of the terms of your divorce agreement and to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

How Is Child Custody Decided In New York?
Even the most amicable of divorces can be complicated by the existence of children in the marriage. Receiving a favorable custody or visitation outcome is the primary concern of most parents during a divorce proceeding. Our custody law attorneys at the Newman Law Group can give you much-needed guidance and security as we fight to protect your parental rights during a child custody case.
The family court system in New York decides custody cases based on the best interests of the children involved. Attorney Louis Newman has decades of experience building solid custody cases that highlight how his clients meet the child’s best interests.
If you’re worried about having access to your children, know that the Newman Law Group will advocate for you and your rights as a parent.
What Are Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements?
While no couple wishes to consider the possibility of divorce early in a relationship, pre- and postnuptial
agreements can clarify expectations and prove extremely beneficial in the event of a separation or death. If you hold significant assets from before your marriage, having an agreement drawn up by an experienced lawyer will protect your rights to those assets and investments during your marriage and in the unfortunate event of a divorce. A proper “prenup” should be a reasonable compromise that takes both parties’ current and future situations into consideration and addresses all concerns.
Signing a prenuptial agreement during your wedding preparations may feel like a bureaucratic chore in the middle of an optimistic time, but it will be a practical solution that could prevent future conflict and even lead to a more transparent and amicable marriage.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreement lawyer Louis Newman will create an agreement that is fair to both parties and that is worded to protect assets without any ambiguity in the language. Based on your unique situation, he can write clauses to protect the things that matter most to you, such as your ownership of a business, your inheritance from a loved one, or a child from a previous marriage.
Who Pays Child Support In New York?
New York State law requires each parent to financially support their child until they reach the age of 21. The non-custodial parent (the person without physical custody) is usually ordered to make payments to the custodial parent according to the New York Child Support Standards Act. Child support could be settled as part of your divorce or after filing a petition in Family Court.
Calculating child support involves a complex system that takes many factors into consideration. An experienced child support lawyer can help you estimate how much you’ll be expected to pay or receive in child support. Attorneys at the Newman Law Group aim to help you resolve your child support claim efficiently to ensure you have the resources you need for your child.
Child support can sometimes be modified by the court after significant changes in your situation. Child support modification attorney Louis Newman can help you request modification to existing support orders or enforce payments under support obligations.
