Long Island Divorce Lawyer
Experienced Divorce Lawyers Serving Long Island, NY
Before finalizing a divorce some aspects must be addressed. These include child custody, visitation rights, child support, division of property, and sometimes alimony.
When both parties are unable to reach an agreement on these matters, mediation or negotiated settlements can often lead to a resolution. Once all disputes are settled the divorce can be considered uncontested allowing the court to issue a decree. However, if attempts at resolution are unsuccessful the case may need to go to trial.
Having Attorney Chris Palermo by your side will support you. He will help you make informed decisions and navigate through every step of the divorce process efficiently.

"...made the entire process very easy and extremely fast."
I had the pleasure of working with Riley Perry , for my uncontested divorce. She made the entire process very easy and extremely fast. Within seven days of meeting with her, she wrote and the divorce papers and they were signed by my soon to be ex wife and I. I would highly recommend this firm to all friends or family in need.
"He made you feel like he was your best friend..."
After getting a bad divorce deal with my original divorce lawyer Chris was able to help broker a more equitable deal for me. Chris always got back to me within hours be it email or call. His negotiating skills are top notch. He made u feel like he was your best friend and helped with tough decision. My only regret is not going to him sooner.

Long Island Divorces
Before starting the process of getting a divorce in New York there are requirements related to residency that must be met. To pursue a divorce case in a New York court at least one of the following conditions needs to be fulfilled;
- Either spouse must have been living in New York State continuously for a minimum of two years before filing for divorce.
- One spouse should have resided in New York State for at least one year before filing for divorce and either the marriage took place in New York or the couple lived together in New York as a married couple.
- One spouse must have lived in New York State for one year and the reasons leading to the divorce should have occurred within New York.
- Both spouses were residents of New York at the time of filing for divorce and the reasons, behind seeking a divorce happened within the state.
In New York, couples who want a divorce can choose between a no-fault divorce and a fault-based divorce.
A no-fault divorce is based because the marriage has been irretrievably broken for six months before filing for divorce. This means that the couple believes their marriage cannot be repaired or reconciled.
Alternatively, spouses can pursue a fault-based divorce by citing reasons such as:
- Inhuman treatment
- Living separately according to a separation judgment or agreement.
