There is no requirement that you hire an attorney for a divorce in Queens, and in many cases, people are able to obtain an uncontested divorce fairly easily without legal representation.
However, when you and your spouse have assets like homes, vehicles, or retirement savings that need to be distributed, or ongoing concerns like child custody and support, it is in your best interest to have an attorney on hand who can make sure you understand all elements of a settlement agreement, from the short term tax implications to the long term obligations of spousal maintenance and child support.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we know that not every divorcing couple needs attorneys to argue vigorously over details.
If you and your spouse are working together to arrive at a clean, fair divorce settlement, you can trust our team to work with you and maintain the good relations you’ve fostered.
