New York Matrimonial Law Attorney

Matrimonial law, otherwise known as “family law,” relates to issues surrounding the nature of marriage, property division, entry into a marriage, children, termination of marriage, and child and spousal support.

Entry into Marriage

Matrimonial law deals with how couples enter into marriage by covering issues like prenuptial agreements and the legal requirements of a marriage. A prenuptial agreement can determine the rights of each spouse regarding marital property, child custody, spousal support, estate issues, separate property and other issues regarding the marriage. It is an agreement entered into between the spouses before the marriage.

Termination of Marriage

Matrimonial law in each state deals with issues regarding the termination of marriage by setting up rules about divorce and annulments. The family law of each state determines when an otherwise valid marriage can be terminated by divorce or when a marriage was never valid in the first place.

Child & Spousal Support

Matrimonial law in each state deals with issues regarding support of a person’s spouse and/or child by establishing formulas and criteria regarding child support and spousal maintenance. A state’s family and divorce law establishes the criteria regarding when someone needs to pay the support for the other spouse and/or for child support, how much needs to be paid, and for how long. There are also tax ramifications involved.
