Contested Divorce Attorney in Queens

What is Contested Divorce?

When a couple decides to get a divorce, they need to resolve various issues relating to their marriage before it can be legally finalized. These issues are usually division of property and assets, division of debt, custody/visitation of children, and payment of child support and alimony. While a couple may mutually agree to the idea of getting a divorce, they often differ on one or more of these key issues. If that is the case, then the divorce is a contested divorce.

A contested divorce is not uncommon, nor is it a reason to feel like a bad spouse or parent. When two people begin to separate their entire lives they need to address everything. Simply dividing assets may include a residence, vehicle, joint bank accounts, investments, and retirement. Dividing debt may not just be credit card debt, it can also be a mortgage or an auto loan.

Dealing with all these factors can make a divorce seem daunting, and having a disagreement about part of the divorce with your spouse can make it even more emotionally frustrating. That is why having a competent and knowledgeable divorce attorney can make the process of a contested divorce much smoother and more manageable.

Contested Divorce Process

During a contested divorce, one spouse will file a summons with the court. That summons will then be served on the other spouse. This sets the divorce process in motion. It is important to find the most common ground possible with your spouse related to the major issues of the divorce, as outline above. This makes the process run faster, saving time and money on both parties. The court will then schedule appearances, during which both parties will negotiate agreements on the various aspects of the divorce. This can include child custody, child support, visitation, alimony and division of property and marital assets.

If you and your spouse cannot agree to settle all the issues needed to finalize a divorce, it will go to trial. The trial proceedings involve both parties giving testimony and sharing documents that will help the judge make final decisions on all the contested issues of the divorce settlement. A trial is not an easy process, but it will help you close a difficult chapter in your life so that you can move forward. And if you have an experienced advocate fighting for your best interests, it can make a huge difference in the outcome of a divorce case.

Make sure you have the best legal representation during a contested divorce so that you can protect all your assets, both personal and financial. Contact Queens divorce attorney Bruce Feinstein, Esq. today for a free consultation.
