Our Vast Variety of Experience and Expertise
attorneys at Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C. have extensive experience handling complex legal matters. We represent
clients in all types of divorce and family law matters, including cases
We also handle
same-sex divorces and
gay and lesbian prenuptial agreements. In June of 2011, New York became the sixth state in the country to legalize
the process of gay marriage. This was a landmark passage that followed
several years of legislation being passed and forth – finally, the
Marriage Equality Act passed the State Senate and was signed into measure
on the same very night. While this has allowed for many same-sex couples
to validly enter into a marriage, it has also opened up an entire new
area of family law.
Although legally the same as a heterosexual divorce, the emotional nuances
are completely different and should be treated as such. At our firm, we
recognize this and are prepared to help our clients with compassionate
and supportive guidance when it is needed most. However complicated your
case may seem, our skilled attorneys and winning strategies can help.

Filing for Divorce in New York City (NYC), Manhattan, Queens, Bronx and Brooklyn
Up until August 15, 2010, New York only allowed for fault-based divorces.
The allowable grounds for divorce differ from state to state, but New
York used to require the party petitioning for divorce to accuse the other
of a fault such as adultery or abandonment for a period of one year or
more. A new act was signed into law in 2010 that permitting New York residents
to file for divorce even without accusing their spouse of a fault.
This is called "no fault divorce" and according to Domestic Relations
Law (DLR) § 170.7, if the husband and wife's relationship had
"broken down irretrievably for a period of at least six months"
then a divorce can be granted. With the addition of the no-fault divorce
provision, there are now a total of seven actions for divorce allowable
in New York State. At Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C., we can help
