Are You Headed For Divorce? 5 Common Red Flags

Posted On: August 30, 2022

First off, this article expresses the need for couples to have additional help in the form of couples counseling.  As in any therapy, a person, or a couple in this case, will learn new skills and insights on how to resolve issues or have better skills in dealing with different situations and stresses. 

This article also highlights some very serious issues that if not corrected will lead a couple to dissolve their relationship.  Some of these issues are loss of respect for your partner, imbalanced accountability, lopsided communication and a defeatist attitude, as well as the absence of true empathy.

Spirio Law Is In Your Corner: When It Pays To Have An Attorney

Posted On: August 23, 2022

Another instance where it really pays to have an attorney.  I recently had an amazing result for a client.  On a six point speed ticket I was able to get it reduced to NO points and a non-moving parking violation. Yes there was a fine, but not having a speeding ticket of that significance or even a moving violation with that amount of points makes a huge difference on your insurance. Unfortunately, a person appearing on behalf of themselves would never get this result from the Suffolk County vehicle traffic and parking agency.

Can A Pregnant Woman Legally Get A Divorce In New York State?

Posted On: August 22, 2022

So, this a scary title of an article, but the bottom line is, in New York a pregnant woman can legally get divorced.  However, this article points out that in states like Arizona, Arkansas, Missouri and Texas, courts will not grant a divorce to a married couple if the wife is pregnant.  Therefore, in addition to not having control over her body with respect to abortion or health issues that may arise from that pregnancy, i.e. the pregnancy needs to be terminated for the health and life of mother, in these circumstances a woman can be held hostage in a marriage merely because she is pregnant.  

Fortunately, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul is moving to confirm women's rights in New York despite the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v Wade.  

This article also identifies the 7 legal grounds for divorce in New York.  Fortunately, New York now provides for "no fault grounds" for divorce and has moved from the archaic stance where you actually needed other grounds to get divorce.  Now most people can qualify on a non-contested no fault ground.

How My Family Was Torn Apart By a Divorce Bomb

Posted On: August 04, 2022

To warring parents, splitting up often feels like the only answer. But as Jane Green reveals from bitter experience, the fallout - for your children, your friends and yourself - can be worse than you imagined.

Most people do not realize that divorce is like a bomb going off, not only for the family, but for their extended family, their children and their friends as well.  Actor Ewan McGregor was quoted as saying that “a divorce in a family is a bomb going off in everyone’s lives…”. 

This article gives a different perspective from someone who went through a traditional divorce, and after handling the fall out of their “bomb going off”, now believes in retrospect that it may have been better for their children to have stayed in a miserable marriage rather than have the family and children go through the effects of a divorce.

I would note, however, that divorce at any age, including a “gray” divorce, has an impact on children.  No matter what age the children are when a divorce happens, they are impacted.  Obviously this is something that each person contemplating a divorce must think through to see what is best for them and their family.
