New York Divorce Litigation Attorney
When Divorce Litigation Would Be Necessary
Divorce litigation refers to a court action that occurs when a couple wishes to
divorce but cannot agree on the terms of their separation. If both spouses are
unable to reach a settlement agreement on their own, litigation would
be necessary. However, if the couple can negotiate an agreement, no litigation
need occur. The lawyers would simply draft the agreement and present it
to the court.
If the parties cannot agree on issues such as spousal support, child custody,
or the distribution of their property, a judge will make these decisions.
During litigation, both spouses will be asked to present evidence—which
may be in the form of expert witnesses, testimony, or financial documents.
The court will then consider this evidence to make a determination on
the contested matters of the divorce.
Litigation: The Traditional Approach to Divorce
If you and your spouse are unable to compromise on important issues like
child custody, child support, or property division, you may be headed
