Valentine’s Day Divorce Special
According to legend, Valentine’s Day is named for a priest who was beheaded around 270 A.D. for helping Christian couples get married in defiance of a ban imposed by the Roman Emperor Claudius II. The 14th Century poet Geoffrey Chaucer made the first mention of Valentine’s Day as a day devoted to lovers, and the first-ever Valentine’s Day card is believed to have been sent in 1415 A.D. by the Duke of Orléans to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. Fast forward to modern times and the number of Valentine’s Day cards sent out has grown to more than a billion per year. However, what has also grown is the divorce rate throughout the world.
As an experienced divorce attorney in New York, where divorces are all too frequent, I understand that love and marriage are complicated. Statistics suggest that a divorce is filed approximately every 36 seconds in the U.S., generating around $50 billion dollars a year in professional services and related costs. My firm has been featured in a documentary entitled, “Inside America’s Billion Dollar Divorce Industry.” While Valentine’s Day is certainly not about divorce, it can be. When a married couple divorces, it can be the beginning of something beautiful.
Not every marriage is a happy one. Serious issues like abuse and neglect sometimes mean that divorce is the better option. Leaving a troubled marriage can open people up to meeting someone who can make them truly happy. I have gone through the process myself and I know that decision to end a marriage is not an easy one. In my case, and in most of all of the cases that I have handled over the last 25 years, divorce was not the end of the love story, it was the beginning of a new life.
That is why I am choosing to devote this holiday to making it easier for people to pursue a divorce. This Valentine’s Day, I’m offering a two-for-one divorce special on uncontested divorces ($500 rather than $1,000 and pursuant to the terms of our retainer agreement). If you and someone you love are looking to end your respective marriages in order to be with each other, you can both file for an uncontested divorce at discounted legal fees by retaining my firm before 5:00 PM on February 12th (the close of business on the last business day before Valentine’s Day). In order to be eligible for this deal, the divorce and all of its terms, will be pursuant to the law and statutes of New York State, and the jurisdiction of Suffolk County, Nassau County, New York City and its boroughs. You and your spouse must sign papers that we prepare for a New York State uncontested divorce. You and your spouse must agree to every issue contained within the terms of the divorce.
Once you have retained my services and make your payment, the process could potentially be concluded in as little as a month, and then filed in the court. The court must approve of all of the terms of the divorce, including any child support provisions or custody arrangements that are involved. My online child support calculator allows you to enter your financial information so you can get an idea of what your child support obligation might be.
