Contested vs Uncontested Divorce

Filing for divorce can be a difficult decision to make. Matters can become even worse when one spouse begins to contest certain aspects of it. To help make your divorce as simple as possible, consider working with our team at Simonetti & Associates. We’ve been able to help many clients who have experienced both uncontested and contested divorce in NY, so you can trust that we’ll be able to do the same for you.  

Contested Divorce

A divorce may be classified as contested when spouses cannot agree on one or more key issues. Dealing with a contested divorce in NY is much easier to do with an attorney than without one, which is why our services should always be elicited. Our team will be able to assist with some of the most common issues that arise during contested divorces, which include:

  • Child custody.
  • Child support.
  • Debt allocation.
  • Alimony.
  • Property division.
  • Debt dispersion.  

Uncontested Divorce

A divorce is uncontested when both parties can agree on every single issue mentioned. Coming to terms with these key issues harmoniously with your spouse can make things easier for both of you. However, even when aspects of divorce are uncontested, it is important to have an attorney by your side. Our team will be able to ensure that all agreements made are sound so that you and your spouse can move on with your lives without fear of complications arising. 

How Is A Contested Divorce Remedied?

To properly end a contested divorce, both spouses will present their sides of the issue inside of a courtroom. After reviewing all the evidence and information, a judge will make a final ruling regarding the issues that you and your spouse were unable to agree on. Our attorney will help build you a case to be presented to the judge to help secure a favorable outcome. In the rare occasion that an unfavorable outcome is reached, Simonetti & Associates will appeal this outcome on your behalf, and work tirelessly to correct the issues.
