Imagine you have completed your child custody proceedings in New York family law court and the judge has issued an award of full physical custody to your ex-spouse. This doesn't mean that you won't get to see your kids, but it does mean that your children will live with your ex-spouse full-time. What it also means is that you will probably receive some kind of right to visit with your children.

When it comes to divorcing from your spouse in New York, there are a few things that you should definitely do. Failing to do these things could result in a longer, more expensive and more psychologically destructive divorce process. Since numerous spouses make the fatal mistake of not doing these things -- and suffer the consequences -- be sure to look over this list to ensure you're either already doing them, or will plan to do them once your divorce is underway.

Reasons to invalidate a prenuptial agreement

Your prenuptial agreement could be the document that saves you from spending a fortune on a divorce at some unknown point in the future.

And, if you're wise, you will prepare for such a possibility with a prenuptial agreement.

Tips for successful visits with noncustodial children

You child may not live with you the majority of the time, but that does not mean the two of you cannot have a close relationship, and the time you do spend together presents a great opportunity to strengthen it.
