Contested and Uncontested Divorce

When spouses are unable to agree on child custody and financial issues, they may find it necessary to resolve those issues in litigation. Gregory Salant and his legal team know how to represent the best interests of a client during a contested divorce from beginning to end.
When both parties agree on divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, and division of marital property, they can move forward quickly to dissolve their marriage. Gregory Salant and his legal team frequently assist clients by preparing uncontested divorce agreements and finalizing all necessary divorce papers.


Spousal Support

Throughout a marriage, a husband or wife may come to rely on the other partner’s financial contribution to the relationship. In order to maintain this level or financial stability during separation and divorce, one party may be entitled to receive spousal support or spousal maintenance.


Legal Separation

Some couples may consider a legal separation rather than a divorce. Personal, religious, or financial reasons may cause a couple to believe that legal separation is the correct route for them. Throughout Westchester County, Putnam County, Rockland County, Dutchess County, and NYC, Gregory Salant and his legal team will ensure you are represented strongly & efficiently from beginning to end in your separation or divorce.




 


Collaborative Divorce Law

The process of collaborative divorce often helps to foster productive communication and faster settlements while maintaining a more positive environment for children. Gregory Salant and his legal team take a collaborative approach to their cases when appropriate and will work with clients to resolve their case amicably and efficiently.


Property Division

New York is an ‘Equitable Distribution’ State. Equitable distribution means that property is divided fairly—not necessarily equally— between two divorcing parties. Distribution of marital property depends on several factors, including the age, income, and health of the parties, the duration of the marriage, contributions of each party to the acquisition or enhancement of an asset, and any tax consequences. 




 


Divorce & Custody Mediation

Divorce mediation is a voluntary process where divorcing couples work together with a mediator to negotiate and resolve their differences in a non-adversarial forum. The goal is to help the couple reach a meeting of the minds on all issues and to avoid courtroom litigation.
Gregory Salant and his legal team understand that divorce is an emotional event as well as a legal one. Divorce Mediation provides a safe setting for parties to communicate their needs and interests with each other while focusing on principled problem solving such as fairness, self-determination and the best interests of all family members.  Gregory Salant and his legal team work diligently with clients to ensure their individual goals of mediation are reached.
