Can A Judge Order Me To Go Back To Work As Part Of Our Divorce In Queens?

When there are children in a divorce, judges will generally expect both parties to be in the workforce in order to provide for their children.

In Queens, and under New York law, every parent is obligated to financially support their children until the age of 21, and with few exceptions, this will require some level of employment outside of the home.

We work with many clients who’ve left jobs to care for children, and when they divorce, we make sure that the settlement provides as much financial support for them as possible as they re-establish themselves.

We fight to get the best agreement possible on asset distribution, debt allocation, child custody and support, and spousal maintenance (alimony) for our clients, all of which can ease the burden and give you time to find suitable employment, expand your education, or choose to work part time so you can still be there for your kids.
