Is Your Divorce Contested or Uncontested?
Contested divorces are those in which some element is in dispute. Uncontested divorces are those in which both spouses have reached agreements on everything, including:
At Kelton & Teichner in Queens County and Nassau County, our lawyers handle both contested and uncontested divorces. With more than 30 years of experience, we know that things are not always as they appear to be. People often come to us with what they believe to be an uncontested divorce case. When they realize they have not addressed some issue — how the house will be sold, who will be responsible for debts or the religious upbringing of the child — disputes arise. We are skilled at handling all divorce disputes.
Contested Divorces Do Not Require Trial
If you have a contested divorce, or your uncontested divorce turns into a contested divorce, that does not necessarily mean your case will go to trial. While we are skilled and experienced in the courtroom, we know that this is a stressful, costly and time-consuming option. If a positive resolution can be reached without trial, we will guide you in that direction.
The First Step Toward the Future
When you first contact our attorneys, you will have the opportunity to ask questions. You want to know what your rights are. You want to know about timing. You want to know about cost. In order to answer these questions, we will need to learn about your situation. We have to find out about your short-term and long-term needs. Count on us to stand by your side from the very start, guiding you toward a future you can be happy with.
