No city is more focused on winning than Brooklyn, and New Yorkers accept
the demands of competing here with stoicism and resolve. Brooklyn is famously
obstinate in the face of defeat. We coined the phrase "Wait 'til
next year!" and turned it into a rallying cry. Yet, when the moment
finally comes to admit our marriage is over, our façade chips away,
and we feel something Brooklynites rarely feel: vulnerable.

Our law firm can assist with the following kids of divorce cases:
No-fault divorce - In October 2010, New York state adopted a form of
no-fault divorce, eliminating the requirement that couples prove grounds, such as abandonment,
adultery, cruelty, or incarceration. Now one party can simply allege that
the marriage has had an irretrievable breakdown, saving them the time
and torment of litigating that issue.
Uncontested divorce - In New York, an uncontested divorce is the quickest and least costly
way to dissolve a marriage. To obtain an uncontested divorce, the couple
must present the court with a signed divorce settlement agreement. Getting
to a fair agreement is often a challenge; Coffinas & Lusthaus, P.C.
Contested divorce - When a couple cannot deliver a complete divorce settlement agreement, they
must litigate any issues. The contested issues are usually the most complex
and emotionally charged, including child custody, spousal support, and
property distribution. We combine legal knowledge and creative thinking
to resolve even the thorniest custody and support issues. In addition,
we've demonstrated time and again that we have the capacity, even
as a small firm, to protect our clients' interests in the division
of high-asset marital estates.
