In life, many of us recognize marriage and divorce to be common experiences.

Unfortunately, around 40-50% of marriages currently end in the divorce courts, within the United States. As common as divorce might be in today's world, whether someone is an Island Park, Nassau County Long Island resident or elsewhere - that doesn't make it any easier for those who are in the middle of hard fought litigation battles or heartfelt mediation. The only thing that can help to smooth the process of a divorce during one of the most emotional times of your life - is the presence of an experienced and compassionate attorney, who can help you to navigate the various twists and turns of family law. From the initial divorce, to child custody agreements, equitable distribution, and even other more trying concepts like abuse and neglect, the right family lawyer can give you the knowledge and power you need to pursue your best interests.

In the realm of family law, divorce is a common issue to be addressed throughout the United States.
