Deceit is common in divorce. How to avoid being a victim…

A significant number of spouses attempt to hide money and assets in a divorce. If you’re going to maximize your security and come out with your resources intact, you’ll need an astute attorney who can combat any fraud your spouse perpetrates against you. Here’s a case example in which Jeff McAdams helped the mother of a ten-year old daughter. He exposed the deception, won concessions that completely changed the direction of their lives, and set a new course for a better future.

The client was initially receiving only $350.00 a month in child support from her ex-spouse, under a prior divorce settlement. Jeff then took over her Family Court case after she discovered her former husband declared in excess of $300,000 annual income from his international commodities exchange business. McAdams Law pursued upward modification of his child support obligation, challenging his “explanation” for why the company went out of business. The end result: the husband agreed to pay her attorney’s fees, the child’s private education through high school, college, and graduate school, and to increase his monthly child support payments by a multiple of five.

A critical yet often overlooked aspect of
many New York City divorce cases.

If you rent an apartment in New York City and are getting divorced, there are critical landlord tenant legal issues that must be dealt with to protect your financial future. If you have a rent-regulated apartment that your spouse retains, and then jeopardizes the lease by not paying rent, or by living with someone, you could become liable to pay the difference for a new apartment at a much higher monthly cost. This is especially the case if you pay the child support obligations.

For example, if your former spouse is sued for nonpayment, you can named in the lawsuit and not even know it. Here’s the terrible aspect: Housing Court now sells names of litigants to background checking agencies, and as a party to the suit you could be added to this “blacklist.” When you go to rent another apartment yourself, and your new landlord sees you were involved in a lawsuit, you may not be accepted as a tenant. Or you may have to pay substantial rent in advance to secure the apartment.

As you can see, there are very dangerous implications requiring proper handling of lease issues. And that’s true whether your lease is rent-stabilized or not.

In addition to handling matrimonial cases Jeff McAdams is one of New York City’s leading landlord tenant attorneys. He’s uniquely qualified to advise you on protecting the status of existing leases and avoiding future financial calamity.
