For most couples considering a divorce, the most cost effective option will be negotiating the details between themselves and filing an uncontested action with the court.
While this will mean skipping a variety of costly legal maneuvers, it doesn’t mean you and your spouse should go it alone.
Especially if you have assets like a home or significant retirement savings built up, you should still each hire an attorney to review your final settlement and make sure that it says, and means, what you think it does.
Many people are hit unawares at tax time because they didn’t understand the implications of a particular element of their divorce settlement.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino know that many of our clients are interested in a quiet, clean, and inexpensive divorce, and we work hard to make sure that’s what they get – without any surprises down the road.
