It’s important to keep in mind that a divorce filing is not a criminal complaint, and it’s not at all unusual for a filing to paint the least charitable picture of the spouse who is being filed against.
Conversations and actions are routinely taken out of context to try to score points or prove grounds, and while this can be hurtful, ultimately your divorce will follow some fairly clear-cut rules.
The most important thing you can do when your spouse is coming after you with allegations of abuse or other falsehoods is to work with an experienced Queens divorce attorney.
When you object to elements of a divorce petition, there are steps you can take to contest it.
Keep in mind that in New York, a spouse can obtain a divorce even when the other doesn’t want to, so while you can’t stop a divorce, you can use the process to get the best possible terms.
Your attorney will be able to guide your case in a way that offers the best protection of your assets, wealth, and relationship with your children.
