Nassau County Divorce Attorneys
Keith, Shapiro & Ford
Making our voices heard, so your voice can be heard
Family Law issues are often complex, emotional and challenging. Whether you see a divorce or separation in your future and want to know what your rights are, find yourself served with papers seeking a divorce or separation and need to respond or are already divorced or separated and changes in circumstances mean you need to ask the Court to modify support, custody or visitation terms, it is important that you have a knowledgeable and experienced Family Law attorney representing you. With over 75 years of combined experience in divorce, child custody, visitation (parenting time), division of property, child support, alimony, maintenance, spousal support and other Family Law issues on Long Island, both in Nassau and Suffolk counties and in the City of New York, Keith, Shapiro & Ford provides the aggressive, focused representation required to protect your interests and pursue your goals from the initial consultation through the conclusion of your matter.
The law surrounding divorce and support has recently become more complex. No-fault divorce became law in New York effective on matters commenced on or after October 12, 2010. As New York became the 50th state in the country to adopt the concept, other major changes in the law effecting child support modification, temporary spousal support and both counsel and expert fees became law as well. The complexities created by these sweeping changes in the law have not yet been interpreted by all the Courts. Experienced, aggressive counsel is essential to guide you through these complexities and those of matrimonial litigation generally to assure that your rights are protected and your every entitlement realized.
