If My Divorce Is Contested, Do I Have To Appear?

Yes, in a contested divorce action, you will have to appear in court, possibly many times.

There will also be a number of conferences you’ll be required to attend while the court develops its understanding of the financial condition of the marriage, the possibility that you and your spouse will be able to work together to develop custody agreements, and other terms necessary to dissolve the union.

Contested divorces can drain you, emotionally and financially, which is why you need strong legal support from the team at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino.

If you and your spouse can’t agree, a judge will hear the sides and make decisions.

We make sure the judge has every reason to provide the best settlement terms to our clients.
