Divorce

Knowledgeable New York Divorce Lawyer Provides Guidance and Advice

Dedicated attorney helps individuals in the Poughkeepsie area with alimony, custody and more

Divorce is never easy, even when both partners agree that it’s the right decision. The dissolution of a marriage involves crucial decisions about how your shared property will be divided and how your children will be cared for. At the Law Firm of Marco Caviglia, my goal is to help clients in the Poughkeepsie area and throughout New York get through their divorces without added stress or difficulty. My knowledge of New York laws and practices enables me to provide advice on all aspects of divorce, and to address any questions or concerns you may have. For more detailed information, please see my legal guide on divorce and matrimonial law.

Committed advocate strives for fair support and property arrangements

At the Law Firm of Marco Caviglia, I will work to develop the best possible solutions for all aspects of your divorce, which may include:

  • Child custody and visitation — Court orders determine where your child will live, how parenting time will be split and to what degree each parent gets to make decisions about their child’s life. I will work to ensure your parental rights are protected while advocating for your children’s welfare.
  • Child support — A number of factors are used to calculate child support payments, from each parent’s income to each child’s particular needs. I will seek an order that’s fair to all parties.
  • Distribution of property — The division of your home and other assets often depends on whether property is owned by a couple or by just one spouse. I will help you seek a fair division of the marital estate.
  • Division of marital debts — Both spouses may be accountable for debts accrued by the couple, or one partner may be found to be more responsible.
  • Spousal support and temporary support — Whether you seek spousal support, also known as alimony, on a permanent or temporary basis, or must pay it, I will seek a fair determination so that divorce doesn’t leave you financially strapped.

With commitment and conviction, I argue for fair arrangements, always keeping in mind your best interests and those of your children.

When divorce becomes necessary, we are here to help you

The course that your divorce takes will depend on your circumstances. Most couples will first try to work things out their problems, often through marriage counseling. But if that fails, and litigation is necessary than a judge will decide the terms of their divorce. With 30 years of matrimonial law experience, including trials, we can provide you with leading edge representation.

If litigation is necessary to reach just and equitable resolutions to spousal maintenance, custody and other matters, I am prepared to advocate on your behalf in court in pursuit of the most favorable outcome.
