Contested Divorce

Suffolk County Contested Divorce Attorney

Guiding clients through contested divorce

Divorce is a complicated and trying matter. A couple that cannot come to terms over issues may face a contested divorce. Divorce issues can easily lead to emotionally-driven court cases. When a couple can agree on issues outside of court, they may be able to resolve the matter quickly. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. Some couples find themselves in a heated court case over just one issue, even though the others are resolved and agreed to. Topics like child custody, child support, alimony, and property distribution can lead a divorcing couple to the courtroom. In some cases, when a party files fault grounds, a divorce can be contested before any of the real issues are addressed. If you need dedicated and effective legal support for a contested divorce, it is important to pick the right attorney. For the divorce services you deserve, contact Peter V.

Factors that can lead to a contested divorce

Divorce can be a painful and emotional process. Some of the issues a couple needs to address can lead to a contested divorce.

  • Spousal maintenance, also known as alimony, is a regularly contested divorce issue. When parties cannot agree to what the other deserves, a couple can go to court to handle the matter.
  • Property distribution is also a hotly contested issue. When a couple has built a life with certain possessions, those possessions may come with an emotional tie. The idea of splitting assets with meaning and memories can be overwhelming, leading to court.
  • Child custody is no different. Child custody can be one of the most contested issues one can face in divorce. The thought of splitting one’s time with a child they saw everyday can be unbearable. Parents can find themselves in court over the matter as it can be difficult to work through.
  • Child support can also be a tough topic for parents. Depending on the custody case, the non-custodial parent may believe they shouldn’t have to support a child they hardly see or not pay as much because the other “won.” Obviously, the state disagrees and this issue could easily find themselves in court over the matter.
