Although the New York legislature is trying to change that you still must plead fault, or else have a separation agreement serve as grounds. While grounds are essential for getting divorced in New York State, most parties can stipulate to grounds. The seminar will discuss what you as an individual should really focuses on, three main subjects, known by the authorsÂ acronym: C-P-S
"C" stands for Custody of the subject children
"P" stands for Property Distribution between the parties, who get what, called "equitable distribution"
"S" stands for Child support and or spousal support
Pearls of Wisdom:
