Divorce Lawyer in Kingston NY - Helping clients throughout New York

If you have been thinking about filing for divorce, you are probably concerned about emotional issues related to your children and how your family and financial life may be affected. Those are natural concerns. In time, though, the emotional concerns go away and you will be left with the financial fallout of your divorce. Making sure you protect your rights and interests now can prevent years of stress later.

Personalized Attention to Detail

I am New York divorce lawyer Jonathan D. Katz. From my law firm in New Paltz, I represent clients in divorce and family law concerns in the Kingston NY area, as well as Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Greene and Columbia counties.

I provide family law clients with close personal attention and practical insight into both the immediate challenges and long-range consequences of your situation. My counsel and advocacy on your behalf is intended to help you develop and execute sound strategies that will protect your relationship with your children, while advancing your personal and financial goals.

Contact me to arrange a consultation about your specific family law needs today. I focus on divorce cases involving complex issues, including:

  • Divorce and marriage dissolution: Divorce and legal separation affects families of every income level. It makes sense to hire a lawyer who can help you resolve your property, alimony and child custody issues quickly and cost-effectively. My firm looks for common sense solutions that make sense at the mediation and negotiation table.
  • Child custody and visitation: Divorces involving child custody, parenting time and child support are often contentious. I can help you sort out the emotions that often entangle the real issues.
  • Out-of-state and international custody: In today's mobile society, custody issues often involve different state and foreign laws and a complex mix of interstate custody issues. My firm has the experience to help you resolve your toughest custody and child support concerns.
  • High net worth divorce: Successful individuals and business owners often have substantial financial and personal assets to protect when equitable distribution becomes the issue. I am an experienced negotiator and a serious trial lawyer who is able to protect your rights around the negotiation table and before a judge.

Favorable Results in Divorce Are Based on a Solid Understanding of Your Rights

I will work with you so that you fully understand your rights and obligations. Once you know what a practical result looks like, you can then start thinking in terms of your own objectives and the ways to achieve them. Otherwise, the stress and uncertainty of your situation can lead to unrealistic goals, a misunderstanding of your legal position, and counterproductive divorce strategies.

Upon interviewing Jonathan Katz, I decided to retain him because I was impressed with his approach to divorce: he advocated communication, conflict reduction, and efficiency, toward reducing the stress and monetary expense already inherent to any legal action.

When my case took unexpected turns, Jonathan was agile and effective in his response, even when the straightforward divorce turned into an international custody battle that went to federal court. Responsive at every turn, efficient, and wise in his counsel, Mr. Katz's legal services gave me real value for my investment.

Jon's integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know whats important to you. You're not just a number. He is up front with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if thats truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for whats important to his clients.
