Womens' Rights in a Divorce

Long Island Family Lawyers Protecting Your Rights

Going through divorce is always a difficult and confusing experience. This is true for both men and women. However, women may face additional stress and turmoil as they sort through complicated matters related to child custody, child support, and spousal support issues. Women must worry about their financial well-being and security, especially if they have left the work force to become the primary caregiver. During a divorce, it may be hard for a woman to feel empowered as she makes decisions pertaining to her future and the future of her children.

Before a divorce commences, many women face serious questions such as the following, and more:

  • How much will a divorce cost me?
  • What factors can determine who will get custody of the children?
  • Am I entitled to child support?
  • Am I entitled to spousal support?
  • Will I get to keep the house?
  • Can I afford to keep the house?
  • What will happen to our marital assets?
  • What are my rights to my spouse's pension?
  • If I have to work, how can I pay for child care?
