Contested Divorces

A “contested” divorce is the most complicated of divorces, because it involves spouses that can’t come to an agreement on one or many issues of their divorce. They end up in court, asking a judge to make these decisions for them.

Divorce—especially ones that are contested—are complex. Therefore, spouses in a contested divorce should definitely speak with an experienced divorce lawyer who can inform them of their legal rights and ensure they are fully protected. With a contested divorce, spouses will have to go through numerous steps before the divorce is finalized.

To know whether or not your divorce is one that fits into the category of contest, you must look at the conditions under which the divorce is being filed. Are you and your spouse currently at odds with one another? Can you and your spouse agree on the key items that must be determined before the divorce is completed? Do you and your spouse feel mutually responsible for the dissolution of your marriage? Disagreement about any one of these circumstances could result in a divorce that is contested. At the Perlmutter Law Firm, a New York lawyer is prepared to tackle challenging cases such as those that present themselves in contested divorces.
