Benefits of Avoiding a Contested Divorce in NY
Alternatives to Contested Divorce
When divorce is the only option, it can be a long process full of emotional
upheaval when it is contested. Divorces that are addressed in court not
only are difficult but also are more expensive. When the court is in the
position that they are forced to make decisions about a
divorce with regard to
division of property, and other matters, one cannot expect them to fully understand every aspect
of the former marriage.
It is far more beneficial to all parties involved to seek an alternative to a
contested divorce, whether through
mediation or a settlement made between the parties before going to court. Not only are these agreements
usually better, they are less likely to require further legal action in
the future, as the two former partners have come to the agreement themselves
and have not had it enforced upon them by the court.
Protecting Your Children From a Drawn Out Divorce
There is another important aspect to finding an alternative to a contested
divorce, which are the children involved. A bitterly contested divorce
is hard on children. It is in their best interests to try to come to an
agreement between the two of you. There is help available from a Long
Island divorce lawyer who can take action to assist you to achieve your
goals in your divorce through mediation or negotiating with the opposing
attorney to settle the urgent matters without taking them to court.
