The law protects you and you need lawyers who will too. The law may require that the “monied spouse” pay for the “non-monied spouse’s” attorney and pay temporary support during the pendency of the case. However, these rules are not an opportunity to abuse the “monied spouse” and the “monied spouse” also has rights that need to be protected.
If you are served with divorce papers, it’s very important for you to meet with an experienced New York divorce lawyer as soon as possible so that you understand your rights and so that a lawyer can work with you to protect those rights. Contact Tilem & Associates, PC online or call us at 877-377-8666 regarding your family law matter.Domestic Violence
Domestic Violence can be a complicating aspect in any New York divorce case and may affect many different aspects of the divorce. For example, domestic violence may affect the custody and visitation aspect of a divorce and may even affect where the divorce case is heard. Often, if allegations of domestic violence surface as part of a divorce, the entire case or cases may be moved to the “Integrated Domestic Violence Part” (IDV), where one judge can handle any criminal charges and the divorce case.
While Domestic Violence is very serious and nobody should ever have to be the victim of domestic abuse, all too often domestic violence is used as a sword in New York matrimonial cases to attempt to achieve an unfair advantage during the divorce proceedings.
