Does it Matter if I File First? How Will it Affect Alimony and Maintenance?

When considering filing for divorce, it can often feel like a whirlwind of decisions and a gauntlet of pitfalls and possible mistakes. Even deciding when to file with the courts in New York can be confusing. Without the proper assistance and experience behind you, it can even be challenging to know where to start. At the Law Offices of David Bliven, there are over two decades of experience waiting to guide you through the often complex and overwhelming process of filing for a divorce.

While filing first may only come with the advantage of presenting your case first during the court hearing, there are several other, more subtle benefits. Not only will you have more time to plan before the action begins, but you and your attorney can ensure that all necessary preliminary steps and precautions have been taken to give you the best chance for success possible. By enlisting the help of an expert Divorce Attorney early in the process, you will provide them with the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the details of your circumstances and time to formulate the most effective strategy to reach your goals.

Since time is of the essence in any divorce, it is wise to retain the services of an attorney as soon as possible. When you contact the Law Offices of David Bliven in either the Bronx, NY, or White Plains, NY, you will be met with prompt service and a level of attention to detail that is unmatched. TO discuss your circumstances and goals for the future and your potential divorce, contact Attorney David Bliven promptly to schedule your initial consultation. From there, we will collaborate and determine the best possible route for you to take and embark on the first stages of ensuring a favorable outcome in your divorce.
