Brooklyn Family Law Attorneys Stand Up for Your Rights

Firm handles marital and parenting cases throughout the New York metro area

Nothing can truly prepare you for a divorce or another type of family legal crisis. During these difficult times, it’s important to be guided by an experienced attorney who will not only protect your rights but also those of your loved ones. At Goldberg Sager & Associates in Brooklyn, we have guided family law clients to successful resolutions for more than 25 years. Attorney Karen Goldberg Sager is a respected leader in this field, serving on various professional committees that deal with relevant family law issues. That background gives our clients an advantage when they are ending a marriage, handling a parental dispute or seeking advice on another type of important household matter in the five boroughs, Long Island, or Westchester County.

Responsive lawyers provide comprehensive divorce guidance

Every divorce is different, but no matter what the circumstances are in your case, you can rely on us to give you knowledgeable advice, compassionate support and aggressive advocacy. To ensure you have the information you need to make important decisions, we explain legal issues such as:

  • Filing — New York now offers no-fault divorce if a marriage has irretrievably broken down for a period of at least six months. Traditional fault grounds such as adultery and abandonment still exist as well. If you are unsure about how to proceed, we can outline the relative benefits of each option.
  • Legal separation — We help couples establish legal separation agreements when they wish to live apart but remain married. These documents cover the same types of custody and financial issues addressed in a divorce. If the separation lasts at least a year, it can serve as the grounds for marriage dissolution.
  • Property division — Under state law, marital assets are divided according to the principle of equitable distribution. This means that courts look at a variety of factors to determine what is fair, including the earning ability of the parties and length of the marriage. The outcome is not necessarily an even split, however, so effective advocacy is very important in these determinations.
  • Alimony — If divorcing spouses have different earning abilities, alimony discussions can become contentious. Our experienced lawyers advise clients on how the law applies to their situation and advocate for fairness in spousal support while the divorce is pending and spousal maintenance after the marriage ends.

In any type of divorce action, don’t hesitate to get the help you need. Our firm provides a free initial consultation and has a multilingual staff so that we can assist people throughout the greater New York City area.

Professional advocates work to establish fair child custody terms

New York judges make child custody decisions based on what they believe to be in the best interests of the child. This standard allows for a wide-ranging review of the young person’s physical, emotional, social and educational needs. We understand that, in most cases, parents are going to have to work together on key issues involving their children, so our firm seeks to reach decisions on legal and residential custody through mutual agreement. If this is not possible, we present a comprehensive case in court.

Knowledgeable advisers assist with child support issues

When parents of minor children break up, both must contribute to the financial needs of their sons and daughters. Our firm can help you estimate what a noncustodial parent’s child support obligation might be based on each party’s income and other relevant factors such as health insurance costs. We also handle disputes that arise over the financial information provided as well as enforcement and modification actions.
