New York is what they call an equitable distribution state. A judge does not necessarily divide things equally. The judge is charged with dividing things fairly. It’s important you have a family law attorney that can ensure that you get the fair share of what assets existed during the marriage and exist now.
New York considers a professional license, things like a teaching certificate, or a nursing degree to be considered an asset. Division of that can be very complex and have a major impact on the outcome of the case.
With people who have businesses also tend to have a lot of individual investments on top of their main business or profession. You need an attorney that understands those types of investments as well.
