Our divorce lawyer’s areas of practice​

We Can Help With All Areas of Stepanian Law Firm

Contested Divorce

Divorce, custody, child support, and alimony cases are all tough fights to fight. The process is emotionally charged. It may feel like your very being is in peril. But it does not have to be that way. A strong, experienced, methodical contested divorce attorney can be the difference between prolonged chaos and a speedy return to normalcy.

Postnuptial Agreements

Similar to a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement is a legally binding contract and will be subject to review by the Court in the event of a divorce. It is best to have a postnuptial agreement lawyer draft or review your contract. Our Manhattan postnup attorneys will also inform you and your spouse of your individual rights and responsibilities.

Alimony Law

When you need an attorney to help you with alimony (sometimes referred to as spousal support or maintenance), look no further than the Stepanian Law Firm. Based in New York City, the Stepanian Law Firm is on hand to help you understand your rights and provide you with the legal representation you need to protect them.

Uncontested Divorce

To complete an uncontested divorce quickly and effectively, you must file the correct paperwork. Our uncontested support attorneys in Manhattan have developed a quick and convenient process to make your divorce more efficient and less costly. Our firm provides every client with personal attention to their case.

Settlement Agreements

A stipulation of settlement is a binding legal contract that details important aspects about you and your spouse’s life after divorce. Issues in a marital settlement include alimony, equitable distribution, and child custody/visitation and child support. It is important to hire a Manhattan divorce settlement attorney to prepare or at least review your agreement.

Annulment Law

Annulments in New York are generally more difficult to obtain than a divorce or legal separation because you have to prove that your marriage was void or never valid. If you want to file for an annulment in New York City, you must have a hearing. During the hearing, you must prove that the marriage was invalid.

Marital Property Division

Dividing your marital assets and debts accumulated during the marriage is one of the most difficult parts of a divorce, even if your divorce is uncontested. A property and asset distribution lawyer in Manhattan can present your case in a comprehensive way to give you the fairest and equitable distribution.

Parenting Agreements

Legal conflicts involving family relationships can be complex and emotionally charged, especially when children are involved. Parenting plans need to be durable, and both parents must have a solid understanding of their available options and applicable laws. If you are in a legal battle involving child custody in New York, you need an attorney you can trust.

Divorce Law

Any time a couple decides to get a divorce, the decision likely did not come easily. A divorce can upend even the most stable lifestyle. In many cases, divorce proceedings involve not only the end of the marriage, but child custody, alimony payments, and the division of property.

Child Support Law

egal conflicts involving family relationships can be complex and emotionally charged, especially when children are involved. If you are in a legal battle involving child support, you need a child support attorney in Manhattan you can trust. Stepanian Law Firm will help you successfully resolve your child support case and will work hard to provide the personalized, attentive service you deserve.

Separation Agreements

You and your spouse must have a written, signed, and notarized separation agreement to officially become legally separated. Separation agreements are contracts. They address complicated issues such as child custody, child support, alimony, and marital property division. A separation attorney will inform you of your rights and present you with options that fit your situation best.

Family Court

To start a family court case, you must first file a petition. In that petition, you must tell the judge all the facts and reasons why the judge should grant your petition.

Child Custody & Visitation

Legal issues involving a child can be complex and emotionally charged. At this difficult time for your family, you need the help of a custody attorney you can trust to handle your case with the utmost compassion, skill, and professionalism.

Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial or prenup agreement is a contract that is entered into before marriage by you and your soon-to-be spouse. In the contract, you and your future spouse disclose all property you own before getting married. You then describe the rights and responsibilities each of you will have during the marriage, as well as how you will divide your property in the event of divorce or the death of one or both of you.

Ruben and his team did an excellent job on my case.

Ruben was my lawyer for my divorce case. One of the biggest reasons I choose him was that he understood what I had been through and openly let me know my options while also sounding like he genuinely cared. Which alot of other lawyers didn't - for them it was just a job- and I was another client who's relationship has gone south. I appreciated Ruben for letting me know that he would support me and fight the case for me depending on what I was okay with. Thank you for your help and kindness through the toughest year of my life.

It was very easy to work and communicate with Ruben. He was always able to cool down emotions and help to come up with the best possible long term decisions in kids best interest. In general, handled the case in a very professional and timely manner with the sense of ownership.

My previous attorney told me once: "You are a man in the Family Court of NYC - You're going to lose!" and for someone with no previous experience navigating the legal system, those words can be catastrophic. I searched online and finding Ruben is one the best things that have happened to me. Since my first phone call, he was very responsive. He listened. He took the time to explain everything and set the expectations right from the beginning with my custody situation and other bogus accusations. In my moments of despair, he kept me grounded. A straight shooter who will cut through fallacy from people who forgot what integrity is. He knows the law inside-out and will make sure you understand it as well. He's kind and considerate as opposed to any other lawyers whose only goal is to take your money. I could ramble all day about this, but I will conclude by saying: Ruben Stepanian is the best divorce attorney there is.

Let’s face it…divorce is terrible. It’s hard. It’s painful. All of it is just the worst. Ruben not only acknowledged that, but was gracious and professional throughout the 2 years it took to have it made official. He communicated, responded, updated : all the things we want in every other facet of our lives. In the most painful years of my life, Ruben softened the blow. I’m forever grateful for him.
