Contest a Traffic Ticket

We devote much of our practice to helping New York residents deal with traffic tickets. Whether it is something relatively small like a red light violation or something more substantial like a potential revocation or suspension of your license, we can provide you with the zealous legal advocacy that you deserve. Many drivers initially believe that they can contest a traffic ticket without legal counsel. The rules and procedures that apply to traffic court are tricky; consequently, developing an appropriate strategy to pursue your objective is critical.

For example, you generally must receive approval from the DMV Driver Improvement Unit (DIU) and file a new application for a driver’s license if your license has been revoked, but you do not need to go through this process if your license has been suspended. Also, if the court requests proof of insurance, you must provide a letter from the insurance company, rather than simply submitting a copy of your insurance card. Contesting wrong information on a ticket and deciding whether to pay a summons that does not carry points are other examples of the issues that we can help you navigate.

Pursue an Uncontested Divorce

According to New York law, an uncontested divorce involves situations in which the spouses agree on all divorce-related matters, such as finances, custody, spousal support and division of marital property. The non-filing spouse must also agree to the divorce proceeding. Before someone may file for divorce in New York, they must satisfy the residency requirement and have a legal basis for ending the marriage.

There are three different ways to satisfy the residency requirement. One way to establish residency is by showing that either spouse has been living in New York State for at least two continuous years before the proceeding is initiated. It may also be satisfied by showing that both spouses are New York residents on the date that the divorce proceeding began and that the basis for seeking the divorce happened in New York. Although uncontested divorces seem like they should be relatively simple, there are often many issues that arise during the course of the proceedings. Two potentially complex areas are child custody and spousal or child support payments. While you may have a general sense of what would be appropriate, it is wise to discuss any arrangement with a divorce attorney so that your future and the future of your children are fully protected.

Seek Immigration Status in The U.S.

Immigrating to the United States as a foreign national may prove complicated because of the confusing paperwork, technical jargon and the wide range of options from which to choose. If you are seeking a visa, ensuring that you seek the appropriate type of visa is essential. Some foreign nationals may choose to pursue a green card, which denotes legal permanent residence in this country. A green card may be family-based and relatives of U.S. citizens who are 21 or older may not need to wait for a visa before seeking a green card. Other foreign nationals may seek a green card through a job offer or employment arrangement. Knowledgeable immigration attorney Elisa Claro is prepared to help you create a plan that accomplishes your goals in a practical and efficient manner.
