Reaching An Equitable Distribution During Divorce

Attorneys Protecting Your Interests In Divorce

After a relationship deteriorates and a divorce is inevitable, it is not the time for hesitation or a loss of focus. It is time to protect your financial interests, protect your family and protect your future. In no other aspect of a divorce is this more important than in the context of equitable distribution.

Make sure you work with a divorce lawyer you can trust to be reliable, focused and dedicated to helping you obtain the best outcome possible regarding the division of your marital assets.

At Weinstein & Randisi, we take a detail-oriented, aggressive approach to protecting our clients' assets in divorce. With more than 50 years of experience representing Rochester, New York, clients, we have established our law firm as "your family's firm" with our dedication to each client's needs and the responsive, personalized legal service we provide. Attorney Meredith M.B. Lamb, Esq., our lead family lawyer, will work with you personally to understand the state of your assets and your objectives, and she will take a strategic, aggressive approach to protecting your financial interests.

We have experience handling all aspects of equitable division for clients involved in same-sex and opposite-sex divorces, including:

  • Uncovering and identifying assets, including assets hidden by one spouse
  • Classifying assets as either marital or individual for equitable division purposes
  • Division of multiple real properties, international real estate, retirement plans, savings accounts, stock options, business ownership interests and other complex assets

Since New York is an "equitable distribution" state, assets are supposed to be divided as close to evenly as possible, but a true 50-50 split is almost impossible and extremely rare. This imbalance of financial equality in asset division is often counteracted by spousal support and child support determinations. We can provide representation that takes all of these factors into account and protect your financial interests in divorce.

Every spouse with greater financial resources (the "moneyed spouse") wants to keep as much valuable property as possible from changing hands, and the "lesser moneyed spouse" wants to obtain as much of the marital assets as possible to provide stability and comfort for the future. In whichever situation you find yourself, we can fight for you to get the most favorable outcome possible in the division of assets.
