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 down the path to the courthouse.

Here are a few things you should keep in mind about divorce litigation:

  • Your divorce can take months or years to resolve
  • Litigation is the most expensive form of divorce
  • Divorce litigation requires you to appear in court
  • You will need to hire a New York divorce attorney
  • All important decisions will be made by a judge

In some cases, litigation is simply unavoidable; however, you should know that you have choices. At Lois M. Brenner, Esq., we can help you decide if litigation, negotiation, or mediation is right for you and help you avoid going to court.

    “Lois is the absolute best”
    Finding my way to Lois was the best thing that could have happened during my very contentious divorce. Lois took on my case with a level of care that has been above and beyond. She has been an incredible advocate for me, both legally, guiding me through this difficult process with knowledge and wisdom, and also personally, helping give me strength and support to stand up to my very aggressive ex husband. Lois is a gift, and I am so grateful to her and for the future she is helping to make possible to myself and for my son.

    “Lois is a "Rock Star"”
    Lois is a “Rock Star” I was very worried about my daughter who was in a really bad marriage. I started researching divorce attorneys and found Lois Brenner. I called her, discussed my daughter’s horrible marriage and she agreed to meet with us. Since my daughter’s husband wanted out of the marriage too (he was cheating), Lois suggested she help them dissolve their marriage in mediation. To my surprise it worked out. Lois was able to keep my daughter and husband from fighting during their sessions, and she helped them resolve all their financial issues. Since I was paying the fees to help my daughter, not having to go to court saved us a great deal of money. As a father, I am truly grateful for everything Lois did. Her talks with me in the beginning of the process, to calm me down, really helped. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of divorce.

    “They are smart, tough and highly experienced.”
    Lois Brenner, her colleagues, team of experts and staff are phenominal. I hired them to help me to see my son who had been taken out of state by my wife during this insane pandemic. She decided to take him to stay with family but then she sideswiped me with a divorce. I was devastated. Lois Brenner and her litigation partner fought for me and made it possible for me to see my son. They are handling my divorce now and their strength and support is getting me through a really tough time. They are smart, tough and highly experienced.

    Connecting with Lois was the best thing that could have happened during what has been very difficult and fraught divorce. Lois took on my case with knowledge, wisdom and care that have been above and beyond in every way. She recognized abusive and unstable behavior in my ex-husband, and offered both strong legal guidance, as well as personal encouragement and strength to stand up to him. Her support has been invaluable to me, and I am so deeply grateful for everything she has done in helping forge a better more stable future for me and for my son.
