When to Contact a Rockland County Divorce Attorney

The end of a marital partnership is full of emotional and personal matters that can cause both parties to disagree on the terms of divorce. Some situations make a divorce even more complicated. If you find any of the following cases to be true for your marriage, please contact a Rockland County divorce attorney.

Considerable Assets

The most common reason to hire a divorce attorney is to protect your assets. Whether you acquired the assets before getting married or after, you may expect much different outcomes. A divorce attorney will be able to review your assets and let you know what to expect when it's time to go in front of a judge. This way, there is less room for surprise and additional legal needs.

Significant Debt

On the opposite side of the spectrum, if your spouse has a significant amount of debt, you may still be held responsible for repaying those debts after a divorce. This is very common with student loans or if a mortgage is secured under only one spouse's name. If you do not want to repay your partner's debt, an attorney can help relieve you of this responsibility.


Any marital separation involving children should seek the guidance of a Rockland County divorce attorney. The most important factor is not the parents' wishes, but rather the wellbeing of the child(ren) involved. Working with an attorney helps prove that you have the means and ability to provide a good life for your child and should be granted custody. An attorney can also help ensure the terms of visitation and child support are reasonable and achievable.

At the Rockland County law office of David Fried, we strive to represent the best interests of you and any possible children during divorce proceedings.
