Overcoming bias in child custody cases

There was a time when mothers were awarded child custody in divorce cases, but family law judges in New York and around the country are now leaning more toward joint custody arrangements. This is because a growing body of research suggests that children fare better when they spend time with both of their parents, but that does not mean gender bias in child custody disputes is a thing of the past.

The difference between spousal support and maintenance

Choosing to leave your spouse in Brooklyn and seek a divorce can be a daunting proposition, especially if you were not the primary income earner in your home. Many might tell you that in such a situation, you may be entitled to spousal support; others might say that you should receive spousal maintenance. Prospective clients often come to us here at the Arnel Law Firm thinking that both terms are used interchangeably. Yet that is not the case.
