Navigating Contested Divorce in New York State

Contested divorces can be extremely expensive and place extra emotional and financial stress on those involved, often resulting in a much more hostile process. These types of divorces can be even more painful when there are children involved. It is all too easy for an emotional rift to open between the parents, impacting the children.

With the help of a Long Island divorce lawyer, however, you will stand a better chance of reaching decisions that will help ensure a successful and less damaging divorce.

What Makes a Divorce Contested?

As mentioned, when a divorce cannot be settled without the interference of a judge, it is known as a contested divorce. But what does this mean exactly?

In essence, it means that the spouses do not agree on some or all matters related to the end of their marriage. These are known as the "main areas of divorce." In contested divorces, the judge must issue a decision on these areas for the spouses because they cannot come to an agreement on their own.

The main areas of divorce include:

The above will all be determined by the judge based on factors including the income and financial state of each spouse, familial contributions that include financial and non-financial contributions, and even the spending habits of each spouse.
