Can My Uncontested Divorce Become Contested?

Yes. In an uncontested divorce, the parties have agreed to the major elements of a divorce – maintenance arrangements, distribution of assets, child custody and support – and both spouses consent to the proceedings.

What often happens is that a spouse will be served with papers, talk to a friend or consult a lawyer, and decide that they can get a better deal if they fight for a new settlement.

You deserve maximum protection from the unexpected in your divorce, and that’s what the experienced Queens divorce attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can provide.

If the action moves forward as an uncontested matter, we’re there to keep you up to date on your case’s status and ensure that all filing deadlines are met.

If your spouse decides to go to war with you, we’ll be there to fight back.
