  • Why Retain Tabat, Cohen, Blum & Yovino

New York is a "no fault" divorce state, meaning the focus is on the equitable distribution of assets, support and custody, not assigning blame. However, equitable distribution does not automatically mean a 50/50 split and there can be complications indentifying marital assets and separate property. Frequently, the identification and allocation of marital debts must be addressed. At Tabat, Cohen, Blum & Yovino, LLP, we have the resources to fully investigate assets and property, the knowledge to engage the best valuations experts to appraise the marital estate, and the experience to work out the best outcome for our clients.

There are two kinds of support: spousal maintenance (previously called alimony) and child support. Under New York law, there are several factors that courts consider when determining the amount and duration of spousal maintenance. A different set of laws apply to child support. Both issues require an experienced attorney to make sure the settlement agreements comply with the law. The level of experience of the attorneys at Tabat, Cohen, Blum & Yovino, LLP, appearing every day before the judges in Supreme Court and Support Magistrates in Family Court gives us the ability to properly advise clients about each judge's views.

While a divorce can only be handled in Supreme Court, Family Court has authority on custody, visitation and support when there is no pending action for divorce. It also has authority on issues relating to domestic violence, adoption, neglect and abuse of children and other family law matters. When any of these issues arise, having experienced counsel can make the difference between winning and losing. The attorneys at Tabat, Cohen, Blum & Yovino work extensively in the Family Courts advocating for our clients. Click here to learn more

In an adversary system such as ours, one party loses. Sometimes it is a loss of custody. Sometimes it is a support or equitable distribution award that is unacceptable. The remedy is an appeal to a higher court, where the party who is appealing (the Appellant) argues that the lower court made a mistake. A relatively small percentage of attorneys who practice matrimonial law handle appeals, as they require exceptional research and writing skills. The attorneys and support staff at Tabat, Cohen, Blum & Yovino, LLP have the skills and the resources to do the research, write the appeal briefs and argue the cases before the appellate courts.
