Divorce

Divorce is a difficult and emotional process which has grand effect on families and ones everyday life.

Ganolli Law can explain divorce procedures and the court process involved in getting a divorce. This is a highly emotional time and understanding your rights is very important. During your divorce proceedings, our firm works to protect your interests. Our family law experience includes child support, spousal support, child custody, visitation rights and division of marital assets.


Regardless of how amicable you believe your relationship to be with your soon to be ex-spouse, when property division and custody issues arise, even a peaceful divorce can turn volatile. Having an experienced divorce attorney can prove invaluable in settlement negotiations. When negotiations break down, you'll need an experienced and knowledgeable trial attorney, like Kreuza Ganolli, Esq., to vigorously represent your interests before the Court and fight for your rights as a spouse and parent. 


A Divorce in New York may be either contested or uncontested. An uncontested divorce is when both spouses are in agreement on all terms and are willing to cooperate with one another to sign the required documents to allow one spouse to proceed with the divorce. A contested divorce arises when the spouses are unable to reach an agreement. A contested divorce requires court appearances and the ultimate resolution will be determined by the Court.


The grounds for divorce in New York are as follows: 

Irretrievable Breakdown of a Marriage (No-Fault Divorce)

Abandonment (including constructive abandonment)

Adultery

Cruel and inhuman treatment

Imprisonment of one spouse

Divorce based on a separation agreement or separation judgment
