Divorce and all the various facets of it comprise the majority of Ingrid’s cases. Divorce, however, can be a relatively straight forward process concluded out of court through non adversarial mutual negotiations by the spouses in a mediation or collaborative setting or it can become extremely complex including long litigation in a New York Supreme Court and possibly even longer appeals process in an appellate division. The cases most often include with dividing of the property and assets of the marriage and determining spousal support and maintenance (also known as alimony).
