Utilizing Our Experience to Help You With Your No-Fault Divorce
As a law firm that has practiced intensively in divorce and matrimonial law since 1985, Arroyo Copland & Associates, PLLC, is in a good position to advise you about the legal, practical and strategic impact of the 2010 legislative changes that introduced no-fault divorce into New York practice. Spouses can now file for divorce alleging that the marriage has broken down irretrievably for a period of six months. However, all other issues must first be resolved: custody, child support, spousal maintenance, equitable distribution of assets, debt allocation, etc. Thus, our years of experience in the matrimonial/family law areas of practice will be invaluable to your case.
