The attorneys of Bodnar & Milone LLP provide skilled guidance and creative solutions to issues involving:
Divorce—From initial filing to final divorce decree and post-divorce modification and enforcement, Bodnar & Milone LLP guides clients through the process in clear, easy-to-understand language. The firm's attorneys understand what is at stake and listen to each client's concerns. Bodnar & Milone LLP crafts solutions that are right for its clients and their unique case.
Collaborative Divorce—The firm practices collaborative law in addition to the more traditional litigation methodology. Collaborative law offers spouses the opportunity to respectfully resolve their differences pertaining to marital dissolution, child custody and support, visitation, and the many other possible issues requiring resolution without a courtroom trial and the contentiousness it invariably brings with it. Use of this collaborative approach can ease the burden on families by allowing them to make long–term decisions with the additional assistance of counselors, financial planners and other experts.
Property and Liability Division—Distribution of marital assets and debts can be among the most divisive issues in a divorce. Bodnar & Milone LLP has substantial experience in handling the complexities which often arise pertaining to these issues. The firm works closely with the leading forensic accountants in the New York metro area to investigate, analyze and address those issues.
Child Support—Appropriately addressing the numerous issues related to a non-custodial parent’s child support obligation is of utmost importance in any case where there are children. An application of the statutory guidelines for child support matters can often lead to an unjust or inappropriate support obligation. Experienced counsel is required to identify and carefully assess the relevant factors in each case in order to determine the proper amount and scope of the support to be provided.
Child Custody and Access—Custody and access disputes are among the most challenging matters that can arise during a divorce proceeding. Where parties are unable to agree upon a custody arrangement among themselves, it is critical that they be represented by experienced counsel who not only possesses an expansive knowledge of the law, but also has a sincere appreciation for how difficult the process can be on a personal level.
Modification—Circumstances often change following a divorce, impelling a former spouse to seek modification of child support, maintenance or parenting time. Rigorous attention to detail and the stringent requirements of the law require competent and experienced counsel.
Enforcement—Clients engage Bodnar & Milone LLP to enforce orders relating to equitable distribution, maintenance, child support, custodial arrangements and other matters. Enforcement may involve filing contempt motions, garnishing wages, freezing assets and a host of other possible remedies for non-compliance with court orders.
Relocation—A custodial parent’s desire to relocate almost always carries with it a far-reaching impact. When such matters arise, competent and experienced counsel is invaluable to ensure that the appropriate course of action is taken.
