Queens Divorce Lawyer

When Divorce is the Only Option Left

Filing for divorce is not an easy decision. Before taking the final step of filing for divorce search for a Queens County divorce lawyer that understands your needs, the needs of your children and how you see your future.

Here at the Law Offices of Olga Arandia, P.C., conveniently located in Queens County, we understand how daunting the divorce process is. We will guide you through your journey, listen to your needs and obtain the best possible results on your behalf.

What can I do to Prepare for the Divorce Process?

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of gathering financial records and documents pertaining to assets accumulated during the marriage. Do not think because an asset is only in one spouse’s name that the other spouse has no rights to the asset in question. Most property, businesses, retirement accounts, bank accounts, savings accounts, stocks, cars, acquired or accumulated during the marriage are the property of both spouses and the value is to be equitably divided between the spouses.

Here at the Law Offices of Olga Arandia, P.C. our Queens County divorce lawyers will assist you in locating assets and ensure that you receive your equitable share.

Will I be Able to Receive Spousal Maintenance While my Divorce is Pending?

Recently the State of New York passed a spousal maintenance law that makes it mandatory for the monied spouse to pay other spouse maintenance while the divorce is pending and if necessary after the divorce is final. Your attorney must make a request for spousal maintenance.

If you are the monied spouse and believe that you will have to pain spousal maintenance we will do everything possible to ensure that there is a fair and just analysis of the existing financial situation to ensure that you pay no more than what is necessary.

At the Law Offices of Olga Arandia, P.C., located in Queens County and easily accessible by all modes of transportation we can help you obtain spousal maintenance. Call (718) 263-2100 for an initial consultation.

How Does a Court Decide Who Gets Custody of the Children?

Which parent gets custody of the children depends on many factors. The parent who has physical custody of the children may not be the parent who gets final custody of the children. Do not think because the children are with you or you are their primary care giver that a court will automatically award you custody. Do not be misled. The court will only consider what is in the best interest of the children.

The child custody attorneys at the Law Offices of Olga Arandia, P.C. will zealously represent you and what is in your children’s best interest.

Are You Paying too Much for Child Support?

If your financial circumstances have changed it is possible to modify your child support obligation. Do not decide to change the amount you pay in child support without speaking to an attorney first. This must be done legally and by a court order.

Do not put yourself in a situation that you may later regret. Whether you are requesting a decrease or increase in child support call my office at (718) 263-2100 for an initial consultation.

Can I get a Divorce in Family court?

The short answer is no. However, if you do not want to file for divorce just yet you can request child support, child custody and spousal maintenance form Family Court.

Family Court cannot not grant you a divorce nor can they distribute the marital assets.

Olga FIGHTS plain and simple. The only call you need to make with your court issues. I did 20 years ago to help me get custody of my 3 children who have turned into 3 well adjusted adults with a college education. My youngest just graduated from Syracuse University. I️ could never thank her enough. Bill F.
