In this day and age, it is a sad truth to realize that not every marriage will end successfully. Statistics across the board show an upward swing in the divorce trend, more and more marriages ending prematurely. When you are involved in a situation such as this, however, it is not as impersonal as a mere statistic. It is painful, and for many people, the conclusion to divorce comes after an extended period of suffering and emotional distress.
Divorce is not a simple or easy decision, and it carries the ability to turn bitter. When you are considering filing for divorce, or if you have already been handed divorce papers, you should not hesitate to contact an experienced New York divorce lawyer to assist you through the process as painlessly as possible.

The Attorneys at Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C. provide skilled representation in spousal support (aka alimony) matters, customized to the needs and goals of our clients. We help you understand where your case stands, as well as the options and alternatives available to you in the divorce process and how they may affect the division of your assets.


Divorce mediation is about you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse deciding your own divorce and what is best for the both of you and most importantly, your children. In mediation, you and your spouse meet with a neutral third party, the mediator, and with their help, you work through the issues you need to resolve so the two of you can end your marriage as amicably and cost-effective as possible.


For individuals with a high net worth, the New Jersey divorce process brings a special set of circumstances. The Attorneys at Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C. have the experience to work through the complex issues and negotiate a fair divorce agreement for you. We regularly work with clients who have substantial marital assets. The goal of our work in this area is to come to a divorce settlement that protects what you have earned and saved and secures you with what you are entitled to under the law.


When going through a contested divorce or uncontested divorce in New York, property distribution will need to be agreed upon by both partners or ruled by the Court. In New York, equitable distribution is the process which is used to determine the division of property between spouses.


When entering into a divorce, one of the most difficult aspects is that of splitting up the property and assets accumulated between both parties. Dividing separate and community properties can be difficult, and it can often be a highly emotionally-charged process. What then happens should one or both parties be involved in a business? What should occur if they are actually business partners?
Regardless of the exact circumstances, it is important that the businesses and partnerships are evaluated so that both parties will be able to part ways with fair amounts – no matter whether the business is being dissolved entirely or not. For this reason, having an experienced New York divorce lawyer can be an invaluable asset. These types of situations require not only legal experience, but also accounting and tax law knowledge to ensure that the accurate distribution occurs.


In the termination of any marriage, there are stressors for both parties of a splitting couple. However, women often face an additional difficult hardship: navigating through a divorce while attempting to figure out how they will regroup and make a life for themselves and their children. It is not uncommon for married women with children to retire their work and take on the full-time responsibilities of parenting and homemaking.
Married women and mothers who are facing a future life of divorce deserve to be represented by a New York divorce attorney that can help ensure that they remain empowered and well taken care of during this time of uncertainty. At Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C. we do exactly that.


A father, just like a mother, plays a vital role in raising a child to be happy and healthy in both mind and body. By working with a lawyer experienced in defending fathers’ rights, you are taking an active step toward ensuring that you can remain involved in your child’s life. You are also helping to pave the way for other fathers in the future whose rights may be challenged.


A divorce or legal separation affects a child’s relationship with his or her grandparents just as it affects a child’s relationship with his or her parents. Grandparents’ rights are an issue that the attorneys at Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C. are familiar with. We understand the importance of these rights as they relate to a child’s emotional well-being. We make sure to work with any grandparents involved in order to uphold and preserve these rights.
