Compassionate & Capable Attorneys

Divorce has become relatively commonplace in today's society. However, there are many legal professionals out there that do not live up to the standards of professionalism that are expected when handling matters of this nature.

Additionally, many others do not take into consideration the emotional stages that are involved in the process. Make sure you receive the compassionate and capable divorce representation you need for your family law case. Turn to Eiges & Orgel, PLLC.

Reasons You Need a Lawyer for Divorce

If you are considering a divorce, you may be wondering if it is worth it to hire an attorney or if you can just handle the divorce yourself. Whether you are dealing with an uncontested or contested divorce, it is always a good idea to hire an attorney in order to protect your best interests. Here are a few reasons:

  • Expert advice - An experienced attorney who has handled hundreds or even thousands of divorce cases has the legal knowledge necessary to guide you through the process in an efficient and timely manner. An attorney can ensure that you abide by the law, which can reduce your chances of unnecessary delays and costs.
  • Avoiding errors - Divorce is a highly stressful and emotional time, and it can be easy to make a mistake when you are not thinking clearly. On your own, you could unwittingly make errors that jeopardize the favorable outcome you are seeking and could cost you the settlement you are entitled to. Even a small error could delay the divorce process and cost you more money in legal and court fees. Avoid this risk with the help of an experienced lawyer.
  • Reducing stress - Divorce is already difficult enough without having to worry about mountains of paperwork or representing yourself in court. A good attorney will take this burden on for you so that you can focus on what is most important to you.

While the decision to hire a lawyer is entirely up to you, we strongly advise that you not attempt to handle your divorce on your own. At Eiges & Orgel, PLLC, we have handled more than 3,000 divorce cases. Rely on our firm to help you through this difficult process.

The Divorce Process in New York

The divorce process can be confusing, and it is important that you understand the various repercussions of divorce in NY.

  • The first thing you will do is to file a summons with notice for an action for divorce with the defendant. If you are the filing spouse, then you are the plaintiff, and the other spouse is the defendant.
  • The defendant must be personally served with this notice, and it is highly recommended that your attorney handle the service. In the state of New York, once the divorce process has legally commenced, there are automatic restraining orders placed upon the plaintiff immediately, as well as on the defendant as soon as they are served.
  • After the complaint is filed, the defendant will need to respond with an answer. A preliminary conference will then be scheduled, and a discovery schedule will be set at this time in order to exchange the following information:
    • Appraisal of business or professional license
    • Appraisal of pensions
    • Appraisal of real estate
    • Appraisal of any other assets
    • Depositions
    • Interrogatories
    • Notice for discovery
    • Statement of net worth
  • The discovery process is concluded with a compliance conference where the court will ensure that both parties have the necessary information to go to trial. If both parties are prepared, then the plaintiff will file a certificate of readiness, and a trial date will be set.
  • On the day of the trial, the plaintiff will have the opportunity to testify, examine witnesses, provide documentary evidence, and others in support of their position. The defense will also have the opportunity to cross-examine witnesses. Next, the defendant will have these same opportunities to argue in favor of their case. At the conclusion of the trial, the court will issue a decision either in writing or on the record which will address all of the issues brought forth in the complaint and for the divorce.
  • Finally, the judgment of divorce must be prepared by the lawyers and signed by both parties before they are legally divorced.
