Lawyer in Rockland, Westchester and Orange Counties, New York

An Overview of My Practice at de Moya & Associates, P.C.

At the law office of Desiree de Moya, I have handled a broad range of legal issues for individuals throughout Rockland County and the surrounding areas since 1993. My goal, with every client, is to become the "family attorney," the attorney you turn to for legal advice. The hallmark of my practice is my personal approach; I work closely with every client to understand your specific needs and concerns, so that I can identify solutions to help you achieve your goals. Because of my reputation for personal and professional legal service, over 90% of my clients are referred by existing or former clients.

Family Law and Divorce

I represent individuals at all stages of a divorce, separation or other family law matters, from the decision to file through requests for modification or enforcement of court orders. I handle all matters related to divorce, such as custody and visitation, child support, alimony and the equitable distribution of marital property. I also prepare prenuptial and separation agreements. For more, see my family law and divorce page.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

I work with individuals who want to permanently discharge debts through bankruptcy, helping you determine whether you qualify for protection under Chapter 7. I will carefully explain which debts can and cannot be discharged, as well as which assets you can keep, so that you can make an informed decision as to whether Chapter 7 is right for you. If you choose to file Chapter 7, I will prepare and file required documents and represent you in all court hearings or meetings. Visit my Chapter 7 bankruptcy page to learn more.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

If you fail to qualify for Chapter 7, I can still help you stop foreclosure and creditor phone calls by reorganizing your debts under Chapter 13. I will help you put together a reorganization plan and will review and proposed repayment agreements from your creditors to ensure they are in your best interests. For additional information, go to my page on Chapter 13 bankruptcy.


I handle a broad range of issues related to family and employment-based immigration, including spouse, fiancee, parent, child and sibling visa or green card applications. I work with employers or employees in employment-based matters (H-1 and L-1 visas), handle student and political asylum visas, as well as extensions and foreign adoptions. I can also help you if you have been abused by your U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident spouse, or if divorce is threatening your immigration status. To learn more, visit my immigration page.

Real Estate

I handle all matters related to real estate closings, focusing on residential real estate transactions.

Estate Planning and Probate

I assist individuals with estate planning, preparing and executing wills, living wills, powers of attorney and healthcare proxies. I also handle probate administration of a loved one's estate after they have passed.
