NO FAULT DIVORCE
"No fault" divorce has finally come to New York State. Now you can file for divorce under the new "no fault" grounds without accusing anyone of wrong doing. Under the new law, you only need to allege that your marital relationship has irretrievably broken down for a period of at least six months. Unfortunately, the new law only deals with the dissolution of the marriage.
In most cases, the real problems in a divorce come with separating marital property (home-pensions-bank accounts-personal property), custody of the children, visitation, child support, and maintenance. Peter J. Batalla, Jr. can evaluate your specific situation to determine what you are entitled to under the law. Together we will design a plan to achieve your goals, protect your rights as a parent and ensure that you receive your full share of the marital assets.

Often people wind up in Family Court before they file for divorce as an emergency measure to deal with Orders of protections, visitation, custody, child support or temporary maintenance.
Remember, Family Court orders may be carried over into a divorce. Often the matrimonial court will accept Family Court Orders and merge them into a divorce judgment. Peter J. Batalla, Jr. can represent you in Family Court to ensure that your rights are protected and that Family Court is made aware of all relevant issues.
