Some couples are able to come to their own agreement about the terms of their divorce through collaborative law or mediation.
If this is possible for you, it can be the least expensive and least emotionally damaging way (for both you and your children) to come to a workable settlement. However, for many people, collaboration or mediation is simply not possible or practical. This is particularly true in situations where there has been domestic violence or child abuse. If your independent attempts at settlement are getting nowhere, or you know from the outset that collaborative methods will not work, you may have no choice but to resolve your divorce through litigation.
Divorce litigation lawyer Daniel H. Stock, PLLC, has more than 20 years of experience protecting the rights and interests of clients who are going through sometimes contentious and complicated divorce proceedings in New York County. Our firm can help you, too.
When The Last Resort Is The Only Resort
If you are dealing with a spouse who is bullying, withholding or being otherwise unreasonable about your divorce, you may not be able to settle out of court. At Daniel H. Stock, PLLC, we recognize when we need to go to court, and do not hesitate to do so. While mediation can save you money and potential emotional turmoil, sometimes litigation may be your best (and only) option. The terms of a litigated divorce are decided by a judge rather than by the spouses themselves.
Your decision about whether to litigate your divorce may hinge on the quality of communication between you and your spouse, and also on the complexity of the issues you need to resolve, whether they involve custody litigation, property valuation, retirement distribution or other factors. Our firm is committed to providing strong and comprehensive representation for your divorce, in and out of the courtroom.
