Long Island Divorce Lawyers

Most Divorce cases end in a mutually agreeable settlement by the parties with the help of their attorney who negotiate their respective positions. We certainly encourage this practice whenever possible.

Although you and your spouse may agree to ending your marriage, however, this does not necessarily mean that your divorce is “uncontested”. When spouses cannot reach a settlement with respect to property rights, maintenance, child custody and support, their case is then litigated in court.

In the event your divorce is a contested matter, you will need an experienced divorce lawyer who will fight hard to protect your rights and those of your children. If you are faced with a spouse in court who wants nothing less than to impose upon you a bleak future of unrelenting and unconscionable monthly maintenance (alimony) and support payment, or you are faced with a partner who has forgotten the value of your services and your input into the marriage, then you will need a lawyer who is first and foremost trial ready.

The issues of division of assets, maintenance, child support and custody are then decided by a Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of New York. If your case should proceed to trial, the single worst mistake you can make is not obtaining an experienced trial divorce attorney. At Gervase & Mintz you will have an aggressive divorce lawyer who will have the time and resources available to properly prepare you, your witnesses, your documents and all trial exhibits.

As a result of our many years of experience in the Nassau County market, we have worked with a host of trial experts in the valuation of businesses, degrees and licenses, real estate appraisers and forensic psychologists, whose expertise may be necessary to protect your interest whether your case is settled or litigated.
