Whether a divorce will end up contested, and ultimately handled in court, is entirely up to the couple in question, but generally speaking, if you simply can’t find a negotiated settlement to one or more issues related to the divorce, you will be facing a contested action.
Some lawyers and judges will tell you that no divorce really needs to be a contested divorce, but for the people involved in any given case, particular issues can carry significance for each party far beyond their monetary value.
In those cases, it may be impossible to avoid a court room.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we get to know every one of our clients, and we learn what their priorities are in their divorce cases.
We are skilled negotiators, and work every day to avoid the expense and headache of a litigated divorce, but if we are unable to create a settlement that you can live with, we are skilled litigators who can press a case in court.
