Women's Divorce Rights
Gender is Not an Issue
As a woman you may be wondering how you will afford your expenses, whether or not you can get child custody or spousal support, what will happen to all of your shared property, or whether or not you will get to keep the house. These daunting questions can all be answered with the proper legal counsel. A divorce can be a scary and uncertain time especially for most women trying to imagine your life from here on out. Your sense of stability and financial security may be shaken because you left the work force years ago to care for your children. Women can make imperative decisions and steps to protect their future and the future of their children by being aware of their rights in the divorce process. Women are not at a disadvantage because the law has made it so gender will have no impact on the court orders.
Women have the right to request spousal support, custody, and restraining orders if necessary to protect their well-being. The state of New York takes woman's rights very seriously and will take active measures to ensure that those rights are not being denied to them. Women should not be left feeling powerless and a lot. Instead, they should be able to move on after a separation or divorce and keep their integrity and family intact. Women deserve an attorney that will provide them with specialized individual attention and a high degree of ethics to maintain objectivity in any given situation.
