Long Island Contested Divorce Lawyer
What is a contested divorce?
A contested divorce occurs when the couple cannot agree on the final terms of the
divorce. This situation carries the potential for long, drawn-out legal battles
over asset division, and the process can be especially difficult when
there are children involved. Unless you take action now to protect your
personal interests, you could easily end up with a divorce settlement
which leaves you at a major disadvantage. Come to The Virdone Law Firm,
P.C. for a free initial consultation, to learn more about how we can help
you defend your rights in the divorce. We take on a limited number of
clients, to focus on achieving the best possible results for you.
If you and your spouse are unable to settle issues such as property division,
spousal support before going to court, the judge will be called upon to intervene by ruling
on each point. To avoid arbitrary rulings and unfavorable decisions, it
is highly advisable to pursue an
uncontested divorce whenever possible, such as through
mediation / settlement or negotiations with your spouse's attorney. When this cannot be done,
it is vital to work with a Long Island divorce attorney who will fight
to defend your personal interests and work tirelessly to help you achieve
a satisfactory settlement.
