Long Island Divorce Lawyer

Handling Divorce & Family Law Issues in Nassau, Suffolk & Queens

Hello, and welcome to my Long Island divorce website. I am attorney Jay D. Raxenberg, and I offer experienced legal counsel, representation, and services to individuals and families throughout Suffolk, Nassau, and Queens with divorce and family-related legal issues. As Long Island divorce attorney, I am fully committed to protecting my clients' legal rights and interests throughout their family law cases. I dedicate my time and effort to provide the best possible representation to each one of my clients.

I created this website as a tool to help people with their legal matters, offering trusted information regarding a variety of family law and matrimonial issues. Family law issues are very different from other types of legal matters. You are not only dealing with breaking up a romantic partnership; in many cases, entire families and households are involved. I know this requires a delicate touch combined with an unmatched knowledge of the legal system as it applies to families and divorce.
I believe in taking a solution-oriented approach to my cases to help avoid unnecessary and possibly lengthy litigation. Sometimes, however, the best efforts at ending a divorce amicably can be thwarted. If this is the case, you can rest assured that I will use my extensive litigation experience to do everything I can to advocate your best interests.

Deciding to divorce or separate is never an easy decision to make and should only be made after a great deal of thought and consideration. If you and your spouse ultimately decide to proceed with the divorce process, it is important to have an experienced Long Island divorce lawyer working on your behalf to ensure your rights and best interests are protected. There is a great deal of paperwork that must be prepared and filed, and I can ensure that all of your legal documents are filled out correctly and filed with the appropriate courts. While some forms are mandatory for a New York divorce, there are various other forms that can be optional, depending on the couple. Such forms include:

  • Affidavit in support of motion for contempt
  • Contempt of court
  • Affirmation of counsel regarding forensic reports
  • Parenting plan
  • Order to show cause for temporary relief
