Whenever a marriage ends, the emotional and financial stress can put a severe strain on the spouses and family involved. Spouses who are unable to make decisions between themselves on the terms of their divorce will usually have to turn to the court for the decisions. Contested divorces are the result of an inability or refusal to make amicable decisions by the spouses. These types of divorces are much more expensive and can lead to additional stress as well as becoming a much more lengthy litigation process.

The sad result of many contested divorces is bitter arguments over minor details, which merely lengthen the process and cause additional cost to both parties involved. If you find that you are unable to come to a decision with your spouse regarding the terms of your divorce you should acquire the legal aid of a New York divorce attorney as soon as possible to help ensure your rights as a spouse or even a parent are protected.

There are many different issues that must be settled during divorce proceedings, including matters such as child support, child custody & visitationmarital asset division and spousal support. Unfortunately, in contested divorces, many of these matters are drawn out and made unnecessarily difficult by one or both spouses, which can lead to serious financial difficulties or even emotional trauma if there are children involved. A parent can even lose custody and visitation rights to their child entirely if their divorce proceedings are not handled correctly.
