Top-10 Divorce Attorney in New York City

Divorce is not easy.  Queens family law attorney Sadatu Salami-Oyakhilome knows this and provides a guiding hand to address the difficult and hidden issues in a divorce.  Ms. Salami-Oyakhilome has mastered the difficult art of balancing compassion and aggression in representing spouses in divorce issues, child custody cases, and spousal support matters. She’s the lawyer you need if you need help modifying pre-existing agreements, and she can help get protection for you if your spouse is violent or abusive in any way.

Divorce: Understand How Not to Get Cheated
Protect Your Wealth Before A Divorce

NYS splits property based upon “most fair.”  This does NOT mean everything needs to be settled equally.  Equitable Distribution of Assets is how NYS determines who gets what.  You don’t have to settle for a 50/50 split if you don’t have to.    So don’t!  Hold on to what you deserve.  

Throughout her career, Ms. Salami has shown that getting a just result for her client is her top responsibility. Matrimonial law takes on a personal dimension for her, because she understands her clients are often in a difficult situation. As your lawyer, she places as much emphasis on giving you a tough advocate in court and in negotiations as well as a person you can go to when things get rough.

In New York City, you can get a divorce if the relationship is “irretrievably broken” and has been for some time: a “no-fault” divorce. Whatever you agree upon has to have the judge’s approval so that the court may enforce the agreement. An experienced divorce attorney will protect your interests through the process.

Protect Your Child's Best Interest and Welfare

”The best interest and welfare of the child” is the court’s first concern. Whether your concern is physical or legal custody, you need professional support to ensure that you secure what you consider to be the best for your children.  We want to be sure you don’t lose your children.

When children are a factor in divorce, Sadatu Salami can help you sort out the differences in types of custody under New York law. You and your spouse will have joint legal custody if there is no agreement otherwise. One parent will have physical custody and the other will have visitation rights. You may need to make an argument in court that you are the spouse who will serve the child’s interests best. Ms. Salami will help you make this argument.

Stop the Abuse

Sometimes relationships can be nasty, unpleasant, and controlling. Abuse can be physical, verbal, sexual, psychological, or even mental.  We’ve all heard the horror stories.  If you need protection from an abusive spouse, whether you are getting a divorce or not, you can count on Ms. Salami to help you file an order of protection. In some cases, you’ll have to prove to a judge you need one, so don’t go it alone.

If you are in Manhattan, Staten Island, the Bronx or Brooklyn, you can call on Sadatu Salami for help with a divorce or matrimonial law issue in all counties and boroughs. Call to discuss your case for free.

Sometimes the need for legal help in a marriage is not because of a problem, but rather because of something good. In this case, Spouse A had just formed a new business partnership that had a very specific shareholder agreement between the spouse and the other partners. There was a desire to ensure that the partner’s spouses received a benefit in the event that their spouse, who was a partner in the business, died, but that such a benefit did not impact the long-term ownership of the business. Due to the way that the contract was written up, there was a requirement that all partners who were married signed a postnuptial, and those who were not married would need to sign a prenuptial. In the case of our client, we walked Spouse B through the agreement, and why and how it would benefit them. Marriage is more than a meeting of souls and love. It is also an economic relationship, and it is important to understand how the relationship impacts you. This agreement also allowed the spouses of all the partners to share in the benefits of the business relationship, without be exposed to the risks of having ownership in the business.
