Serving Albany, Troy, Saratoga Springs & Clifton Park NY
Personalized Services for Your Personal Matter
New York State ushered in “No-Fault” Divorce grounds in October 2010. However, that did not simplify the process of divorce. While grounds may not be an issue, there are still difficult issues to resolve such as marital finances, support and child custody. Some areas of the relevant law are ever changing. While 2010 legislative action brought with it temporary maintenance guidelines, there is legislation that passed both NYS Houses in June 2015 that is expected to be signed by Governor Cuomo that will make further changes in the area of spousal maintenance. It is important to have a Law Firm that is tracking those changes and will help you analyze how they impact your situation.
The United States Supreme Court ruled on June 26, 2015 that States cannot ban same sex marriage. NYS passed the Marriage Equality Act in 2011. Even before such historic court rulings and legislation, Ianniello Anderson, P.C. has been committed to serving the needs of clients in same sex divorce and related family law issues.
The firm also recognizes that many clients would prefer more involvement in the outcome of their matters. That is why the firm is committed to offering Collaborative Law services that provide a Team based model of out of court dispute resolution. In such a model, you, the client, are an integral part of the Team giving you a leading role in the process.
Our firm offers comprehensive Matrimonial and Family Law services to its clients. Ianniello Anderson, P.C. recognizes the very personal nature of a client’s family law matter requires personalized services.

Divorce (Court and Collaborative):
In addition to court actions for divorce, the firm has an attorney trained to provide clients with the option of Collaborative Divorce based solutions as an alternative to Court based resolutions of matters.
Collaborative Law is a process to resolve Matrimonial and Family Law issues where a commitment is made by the participants to use the Collaborative method rather than the Court system. Collaborative Law allows the participants to be fully involved in the process and all decision making. It allows a couple to use a team approach to reach creative and effective solutions to their matter in a respectful environment. Rather than matters being worked out in the hallways of the local Courthouse or in the Courtroom in front of a Judge, couples attend work sessions scheduled around their work commitments and schedules to provide a more relaxed environment to achieve the couple’s common goals.
Custody Proceedings, Child and Spousal Support Proceedings, Family Offense Proceedings, Grandparent Visitation Proceedings, Post-Divorce Enforcement of Support Orders; Modification of Existing Child Support Orders; Modification of Existing Custody Orders
Many times a couple has resolved their Divorce and reached an Agreement, but a life circumstance or change requires a modification of the terms of that Agreement with regard to custody and/or child support. The Court retains jurisdiction on child custody matters until age 18 and child support matters to age 21 in New York State. An Agreement reached by a couple when their children are young may no longer be meeting the needs of the children. The firm offers consultation and services to modify existing Orders of Support and Custody.
There are also times where a party to a Custody or Support Order is not abiding by the terms of that Custody or Support Order. Services are offered to seek Court enforcement of existing Orders of Child Support and Custody.
Services are provided in the New York State Supreme and Family Courts of the greater Capital District region.
