Frank is a great lawyer. He is very professional, and it shows that he loves what he does although some cases are not easy. My case was about child custody and they explained everything to me as to what the best scenario would be and the worst. I would like to thank Frank and his team for their hard work and dedication! Frank was such a great lawyer. My case was very hard and he helped me feel very confident. I recommend him 100% to everyone. He is very professional! I will forever be grateful with Frank I don't know where to begin my son and I are forever grateful Frank was so professional from the moment I met him! I got so much done within 4 days of retaining him, more then I've got done in the five months that this case was proceeding.

I am often intimidated by the unknown and law is definitely not my field of expertise. However, my uncertainty and apprehension collided with Mr. Frank Galchus. Mr. Galchus carefully listened to my concerns and helped me to be triumphant in the courtroom. He spoke clearly and concisely and exhibited astounding confidence. He was sharp, tactful, and encouraging. There are a lot of things in life that can be imitated but, victory is not one of them; either you're victorious or you&'re not. Frank is an absolute champion. Thank you Frank!!! So honored to have been represented by Mr. Galchus. He is truly for is clients, he's super sharp, and very clever. He will make time to sit and talk with you and responds to all emails you send him. So happy with the outcome of my case.

For most of us, marriage is a dream. A rite of passage, in which you and your partner enter into a life together of wedded bliss. But sometimes things don’t work out how we plan, and our dream can slowly turn into a nightmare. When a marriage is failing, divorce is often a necessary recourse – allowing you and your spouse the freedom to once again explore life separately from one another. However, no matter how much you may want out of a marriage, divorce can be a long, drawn out, difficult process.

In addition, a divorce can have a number of long-term, damaging effects, not just emotionally, but financially as well – especially in the event you and your partner may have had children together. It is vital that you stay on top of things and hire the right legal representation to guide you through the process.
You need the help of an experienced family lawyer like Mr. Frank Galchus, who can assist you in navigating the pitfalls that can commonly cause issues during a divorce.

Our firm can help you through processes including:

  • Alimony & Spousal Support
  • Property & Asset Division
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support

Child Custody and Visitation
During any divorce, in which children are involved, custody plays an integral role in negotiations. Often times, parents will use children as a pawn during the negotiations process, to obtain a better financial foothold and more. Therefore, no matter how civil your divorce proceedings may start, they can often turn ugly and you need to be ready. With the help of an experienced family law attorney like Mr. Frank Galchus, you can be sure you have a lawyer who will fight tooth and nail for your parental rights – helping to advise you on complex details like custody orders, legal custody versus residential custody, joint custody, visitation, child support and much more.

Financial Implications of Divorce
Depending on which side of the divorce you might fall on, and your current financial circumstances, you might either be entitled to receive, or be ordered to make monthly payments to your former significant other. These payments are court ordered and occur for different reasons. When it comes to alimony or spousal support, the courts will order one side to compensate the other on a monthly basis in order to help account for the adverse economic issues associated with a divorce. In addition, in some instances, you must support the other party in order for them to maintain the lifestyle they have grown accustomed to during your marriage.

In the event you have children, the party who gains custody may require the other to make monthly child support payments, for the child’s care. The one thing to understand is that these payments are all a matter of negotiations, and with the help of an experienced attorney you can negotiate a deal that is to your benefit.

Asset Division
One of the most key factors in any divorce is the division of any marital assets and properties. New York State is an Equitable Division state, meaning that in the event of a divorce, property is generally divided equally with consideration to what each party contributed to the marriage. Despite the language used in the law, equitable doesn’t always end up meaning fair and it can be left up to the judge in the case to decide what they deem to be fair and equitable. They will take into account each party’s current finances, the length of the marriage, each person’s age, health and their needs moving forward (for instance, a custodial parent might “need” the family home to raise the children in).

This can be devastating in some instances for either party, and it is in both party’s best interests to come to a fair agreement on their own. Having an experienced attorney, with negotiation skills like Mr. Galchus is vital in this instance, as he and his team will ensure you get the most favorable agreement possible.

Divorces are never easy, and the best thing you can do for yourself and the future of your loved ones is to hire an experienced attorney, who has got your best interests at heart. The Law Firm of Frank Galchus will work tirelessly, to guide and advise you through each and every step of the process, no matter how complex things can be.
