If your spouse responded to your original complaint with counterclaims, the judge will require a preliminary conference in which your attorneys will outline the points of agreement and disagreement.
If your spouse has directed their attorney to settle, then you may not need additional hearings.
If, on the other hand, your spouse isn’t being entirely straightforward with you, the preliminary conference will give your attorney the information they need to protect your interests as the action moves forward.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino represent our clients zealously.
We know that divorce actions are an especially difficult area of law because of the extreme emotions in play, and because in many cases, a spouse may proceed dishonestly to try to game the system.
We can protect you from adverse outcomes in your divorce and get you a settlement that you can build a future on.
