Valuing Stock Options in Divorce by Timothy J. Horgan, Esq.
The general rule in New York is that all property acquired during a marriage and before the commencement of a matrimonial action or signing of a Separation Agreement is subject to “equitable distribution.” In other words, marital property. How property is titled is immaterial.

Protecting Your Personal Finances by Stacy Francis, CFP®, CDFA™
Divorces are very complicated and can take a huge emotional toll on you. The last thing you need is for your divorce to be a financial disaster as well.

Divorce and the Home by Stacy Francis, CFP®, CDFA™
There are many questions about a marital residence that you may ask at the time of divorce. Here are the typical questions that arise and how they may be best addressed.
It is well settled that one spouse may be required to support another spouse, during and after the divorce, to meet the reasonable needs of the recipient spouse under New York law. In divorces cases in which one spouse is an immigrant, New York courts often consider the U.S citizen or permanent resident spouse’s financial responsibility imposed by both New York state law and federal immigration law when deciding maintenance and equitable distribution of marital property.
Fifteen Critical Financial Mistakes in Divorce by Lee Slater, MBA, CFP™, CDP
If you suspect that your spouse is planning a divorce, make copies of all important financial records such as account statements (savings, stockbroker, real estate partnership) and data that relates to your marital life style (checking accounts, charge card statements, tax returns).
Comprehensive Knowledge of Individual Finance - The financial planning process begins with gathering of data and coordination of financial information with other professionals such as stockbrokers and business accountants to produce a complete analysis of the current financial position.
The Value of a Divorce Financial Planner by Nancy Kaye, CFP®, MBA
Prior to Divorce Proceedings Before the spouse is served the request for divorce, the initiator of the action should follow specific steps in order to gather asset documentation and expense figures. Once the action has commenced, the opposing party generally changes the mailing addresses of statements, and makes provisions so that fewer assets will be known by the non-financial oriented/non owner spouse or withholds any/all information.
Divorce is wrought with extreme emotional and financial turbulence. Histories that bound families, friends and home life are disrupted. Standards of living are often changed, not just for spouses but for the children as well.
Married couples typically file joint tax returns. The husband and wife are responsible jointly and individually for payment of correct taxes on their taxable income. One spouse may contribute little or no income but will still be liable if the other spouse understates or makes an underpayment of the amount of income tax due.
The Tax Aspects of Divorce or Separation by Robert E. Nowak , Esq.

New York does not automatically give custody of children to any one parent. In deciding custody, the court only considers what is in the best interest of the child. It considers who gave primary care during the marriage, scheduled doctors' appointments, and attended school meetings. Generally, the court allows the non-custodial parent ample visitation with the child and even awards joint custody. Visitation is often only limited in circumstances where there is abuse.
