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.

    “I'm Happily Married. Thanks Lois!”
    Thanks to Lois Brenner our wedding went well because we had our prenuptial agreement in place. We literally had her draft our prenuptial agreement 2 weeks before our wedding. She was thorough, made suggestions to include things we hadn’t even thought of, and got it done really quickly. Thanks Lois :)

    “We love Lois!”
    What a gem! Lois Brenner is the best out there by far... She got my husband and I right away. Listened, guided, let me cry, and never gave up on us during our mediation sessions. It was not easy but she made it possible. Even my husband liked her and agreed to mediate after we had lots of arguments. Thank you Lois. I already recommended you to my cardiologist. Have a happy, productive New Year.

    “Inventive Attorney”
    We have Lois Brenner to thank for turning our marriage around. We hired Lois as our mediator when we were considering divorce. When we started working with her and she realized we wanted to try to keep our marriage together she suggested a postnuptial agreement to get our marriage back on track. Having the postnuptial agreement made us both accountable when it came to our issues. Having this doc in place is clearly helping us redefine our marriage in a better way. I don’t know if we will never get divorced, but for now we are respecting each others’ boundaries and are aware of the consequences if we don’t! It was really cool that Ms. Brenner suggested this method as an option. Most divorce attorneys would not have suggested a way for us to try to stay together. She is very talented and unusual in the best possible way. If we choose to take the divorce path eventually we will definitely hire her again. In the meantime we are making it work. She is amazing.

    “"Amazing, Skilled Mediator"”
    Amazing, Skillful Mediator!!!! We went to see Lois Brenner for a mediation consultation. We had pretty much decided our marriage was over. We just wanted to end things fair and amicably. Lois Brenner spent so much time with us, and gave us great insight as to how the process would help us, we hired her on the spot. Our sessions thereafter were stealth. She organized us, helped us identify and address all the issues. She showed us how to communicate effectively throughout the process. We were able to address all our issues, especially property and finances, arrive at a comfortable settlement agreement, and now we are waiting for the judge to sign our divorce. What an extraordinary process. I highly recommend Lois Brenner and mediation. She’s super, and mediation really works.

    “Lois is the absolute best”
    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.
