Hire the Best Long Island Divorce Lawyers for a Rate You Can Afford
Put an accomplished attorney to work for you without breaking the bank
Divorce is disruptive enough. You should not have to put yourself in financial peril to retain a top-level attorney. Bryan L. Salamone & Associates, P.C. is a leader in Long Island divorce law because we put our clients’ interests first. This includes offering rates that are well below what other accomplished New York divorce lawyers charge.
For a rate significantly lower than our competitors, you can hire a firm that has secured exceptional results for thousands of people just like you. This is based on an affordable retainer fee for the first 10 hours of comprehensive legal representation. If you and your spouse are close on terms relating to parenting arrangements and finances, there might not be a need to go beyond the original financial commitment. However, you should remember that court fees and related expenses amount to approximately $400 in New York. This includes payment for:
- Filing the initial complaint
- Obtaining a judge
- Managing the case on the court calendar
- Serving process on your spouse
Though our hourly rate is significantly less than comparable firms, you can be assured that you will receive outstanding legal representation and personal service. Our attorneys and support staff care about you, the outcome of your case and your overall well-being. As part of that commitment, we are always upfront regarding fees and potential costs.
Factors that affect your legal fees
One question we commonly hear is “What makes a divorce more expensive?” Each case is unique and as the firm that has handled more contested divorces than anyone else in Nassau or Suffolk, we understand how the following factors can lead to greater expense:
- Sharp differences over custody, property division, alimony or child support
- Allegations of family violence
- Complex business and/or personal assets that must be divided
- Refusal to engage in positive communication
- Defiance of court directives
- Issues that require the assistance of a forensic psychologist
- Difficulty addressing retirement accounts
- Complications involving the sale of a marital home
There are situations where intense litigation is the best way to achieve a successful result. Though this might require a larger attorney fee, the financial benefit associated with a favorable outcome could greatly outweigh the increased expense. Even more importantly, the additional effort required to secure proper custody and visitation arrangements might be invaluable.
If you’re looking to save money by resolving your divorce through mediation
We also offer divorce mediation services where couples pay an amount for each hourlong session and that is substantially lower than comparable mediators. If the mediation is successful, we will prepare a full marital settlement agreement for only $1,725. If an uncontested divorce is the end goal, that will cost $1,500 plus an additional $400 in filing/court fees and case expenses.
