Divorce is not about justice. It’s about bringing closure to something that’s not working for you and giving you the ability to move on.

In New York, when a marriage goes bad, the court’s going to look at your marriage as an economic partnership. Much like a business partnership. Taking into account the parties contributions to the extent that that’s necessary or required, and making things equitable so each party can move on. And move on comfortably without becoming a ward of the state.

At the end of the day, if you’re looking for justice in the divorce scenario, unfortunately the law, the judges, nor the lawyers are going to be able to provide that for you. Justice is something that happens over time.
