Queens Divorce Representation
Guiding You Through All Aspects of Divorce
No one understands your life better than you. When faced with divorce, you are in the best position to make good decisions about what you need from a settlement. Thinking clearly during divorce, however, is easier said than done. Feelings of anger, sadness, fear, or anxiety can quickly cloud your judgment. If this happens to you, we can be at your side to help you sort through the emotions and guide you toward an agreement that serves your best interests.
Our team at Levi Divorce & Family Law Attorneys in Queens put your needs first. Our attorneys will be our clients’ steadfast advocates, working together to find a solution that leaves them and their children in a better place long after the divorce is complete.
Should I File Contested or Uncontested?
Many people mistakenly believe that their divorce is uncontested. Uncontested divorces, however, are less common than you may think. Why? Because you and your spouse must agree on absolutely every aspect of your divorce for it to be uncontested.
Our lawyers can help you determine whether you have an uncontested or contested divorce by making sure you have considered every aspect. Speaking with us first can help ensure you file for divorce correctly.
How Long Is the Divorce Process?
The length of your divorce depends entirely on your unique situation. If your divorce is uncontested—meaning you and your spouse agree on absolutely every aspect of your divorce—the process may last only a few months. If your case is more complicated than that, however, it could take longer. The most complex and contentious divorces can take years to resolve.
How Do I Prepare for Divorce?
While it may be difficult to prepare for the emotional aspect of divorce, there are steps you can take to prepare yourself to go through the legal process.
If you have decided to divorce, collect and make copies of all of your financial documents, including bank statements, retirement account information, mortgage and other loan documents, and tax returns. Giving this information to your attorney early in the process allows him or her to understand your and your spouse's financial situation and, therefore, how to approach property division.
Next, it is a good idea to learn about your monthly expenses as a couple. Figure out how much you spend and what you spend it on, so you can have a clear picture of your marital lifestyle.
Along those lines, it is also important to understand your marital income. Do you know how much your spouse makes or how much they have saved up in bank accounts and retirement accounts? If not, now is the time to figure it out.
Taking the time to collect this important financial information early on in the divorce process will be very helpful as you and your lawyer work toward a fair settlement.

How We Approach Divorce in Queens
Your Situation Is Unique
All divorces are not created equal. Someone who is getting divorced after a long-term marriage with three children, a home, and a robust investment portfolio requires a very different approach from someone who has only been married a few years and has no children and no real property. At Levi Divorce & Family Law Attorneys in Queens, our team can handle your case according to your needs.
Simple Solutions for Simple Divorces
Some divorces are very straightforward. If you don't have much property to divide and don't have children, resolving your divorce may be as easy as working out the final terms of the agreement and signing the final paperwork.
If this is the case for you, we can help you reach a resolution quickly and cost-effectively. We can make every attempt to resolve your divorce without ever going to court and to achieve a favorable result for you. Our priority is to help you move forward with your life, not waste your time and money.
Aggressive Representation for Complex Divorces
A complex divorce requires the complete attention and commitment of your attorney. That is what our clients get at our firm. Whether you require our expertise to divide complex assets, craft a complicated custody solution, or obtain an adequate spousal support award, we can help you. We know what it takes to resolve challenging divorces, and we can aggressively negotiate for you until we reach a favorable settlement or represent you at trial to fight for a victorious result.
Protecting Your Children
The way your divorce is handled can have a major impact on your children. At our firm, protecting your children is a priority. We strive to guide you through your divorce in a way that minimizes any negative impact on your children.
