Nassau County Divorce Attorney

Caring and Knowledgeable Legal Service

Family law matters involve both your family and financial situation, and it may be beneficial to obtain kind legal service from a Nassau County divorce lawyer. We know that these are stressful and emotionally draining issues for you and your family, and our team is understanding of your needs. While we are sensitive to our clients' situations, we aggressively pursue their best interests in divorce, property division, child custody and more.

Assistance with Divorce and Separation

If you are no longer interested in remaining with your spouse, you may consider divorce or separation. Separation allows you to enjoy the benefits of marriage, including jointly filing taxes, while spending time apart. If you decide you do not want to remain married, you can easily obtain a final divorce. If your marriage has been irreparably broken for at least six months, your spouse committed adultery or you have another reason recognized in the New York state, we can protect your rights while working obtaining a divorce.

Assistance with Property Division

An important aspect of divorce is how property is divided. In the state of New York, martial assets will be divided according to the specific circumstances of the marriage and the divorce. Certain assets, including property brought into the marriage and personal injury awards, are considered separate property. Separate property belongs only to one spouse and will not be divided equitably during a divorce. There are a variety of matters that influence the distribution of martial property, and our Nassau County divorce lawyer can create a case to pursue your best interests.

Protect Your Family

Divorce can be difficult for the entire family, and Edwards & Rockmore, P.C. works to ensure that all family members' rights are protected. In New York, fathers and mothers have equal rights to their children. If you are a father who believes that the courts have been unfairly favoring the mother of the children, we can help you pursue the equal treatment you deserve. Grandparents may also lose access to their grandchildren after a divorce or death of a child, but our legal team is well-equipped to assist you in seeking the proper visitation.

Children also suffer from divorce, but we are prepared to help you provide them with the best possible options for their future. Maintaining sole custody of your children may be your best option if your child's other parent is unfit to care for them. If they have recently become unfit, we are well-equipped to assist you in modifying a child custody order due to the loss of a parent, evidence of a substance abuse problem or other serious change in circumstances. If your grandchild is suffering from the effects of being raised by an unfit parent, we are also prepared to help you obtain custody.
