If you are married but don’t know where your spouse is we can still help you get divorced.
New York law requires that we serve your spouse the divorce documents so that he or she will have an opportunity to respond.
Although, obviously if you can’t find your spouse then serving them the documents is not possible.
In New York, if you can’t find your spouse to serve them the divorce paperwork, you need to do a Publication Divorce. A Publication Divorce is the only way to divorce a missing spouse.
So don’t worry – even if you can’t locate your spouse – we can still help!
We’ve helped many clients obtain divorces without their spouses’ signatures.  The only requirement for a unilateral divorce is that you must not know where your spouse is located.
If you don’t know where they are and we can’t find them, then we can help you get a divorce without your spouse’s signature. They don’t even need to be served for that matter.  The publication of the notice in the newspaper acts to put them on notice. For more information on Publication Divorces, call us for an appointment at 212-608-1630.

Should You Have a Pre-Nuptial Agreement?

Marriage is most definitely an economic partnership and all parties to a marriage should have full financial disclosure of their fiancee's assets, debts and income before and during the marriage. A pre-marriage agreement, also known as a prenuptial or ante nuptial agreement, is a contract between you and your fiancee that addresses financial issues and any other issues that are important to you and your fiancee. These other issues may include children, religion, sharing housekeeping tasks and career support. Attached to the agreement should be a financial statement listing all of the assets, debts and income of you and your fiancee.

A pre-marriage agreement can determine what items are to be shared as marital property or what items will be owned only by one spouse and identified as separate property.

If you want more information about pre-nuptial agreements, call us for a free consultation at 212-608-1630.

Avoid the Expense and Aggravation of a Preliminary Conference

The preliminary conference is the first court appearance in a contested divorce.  At this conference, the lawyers for the parties explain to the judge what issues in the case are unresolved such as child custody, child support, equitable distribution and alimony.  The judge then sets a deadline for discovery, which is the exchange of information by the parties prior to trial.  Very rarely does the case get resolved at the preliminary conference.  The purpose of the preliminary conference is to set a schedule for resolving the case and to let the judge know what issues are in dispute.

If you and your spouse can resolve these issues together in an amicable manner, then the preliminary conference is NOT NECESSARY,saving the couple time, legal expense and aggravation.

If you desire a FRIENDLY, UNCONTESTED DIVORCE, call the dedicated staff at today at 212-608-1630.

10 Reasons Why Divorce Happens

1. Lack of communication. This is one of the major reasons why divorce happens. Distance is created quickly if you don’t share your feelings, don’t tell your partner what’s happening, and keep your feelings to yourself. A successful relationship constantly keeps the lines of communication open.
2. Finances. Money talks and can make your life better or in some cases worse than you were. If money becomes a consistent topic of disagreement, the road to divorce is certain.
3. Feeling constrained. You may feel your marriage is holding you back from achieving goals and taking opportunities. If your partner can’t support you, then they don’t support the marriage.
4. Trust. Do you really trust your spouse? Trust is one of the leading factors in having a successful relationship and marriage. Your marriage is unlikely to survive if you don’t trust your spouse.
5. Expectations from each other. When expectations aren’t met, it can put a strain on the relationship. This leads to a personality conflict because one or the other spouse won’t bend to sacrifice their time and comfort.
6. Your spouse doesn’t understand / fulfill your needs and desires. It’s common knowledge that we all have different needs and wants. A partner who won’t acknowledge your interests and desires won’t go the distance to fulfill your needs and wants.
7. Quick change in lifestyle. Couples that can’t compromise and meet in the middle are unable to adapt to new changes and be together in harmony.
8. Insecurity. Jealousy and insecurity can lead to fights, and questioning each other’s intentions can put a dent into trust and your relationship moving forward.
9. Religious and cultural differences. Religious beliefs and cultural values can cause conflict, which affects the way you live your life and raise your children. If you aren’t committed to adapting and practicing these values, this can be an ultimate deal breaker.
10. Abuse. Lastly, if you’ve been in a situation where your partner has been abusive or controlling in any manner, discuss this rationally with your spouse. If need be, contact a trusted family, friend, or your attorney about this matter.
