Yes, in a contested divorce action, you’ll have to go to court on a few occasions, especially if the divorce moves to a trial phase. In the interim, there will be a number of conferences between the parties and their attorneys, presided over by the judge. If you and your spouse can agree to terms in these conferences, your divorce will be much smoother than if you continue to fight over details and can’t find productive ways to handle assets, custody, and other matters.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we know that our clients want smooth divorces that leave them financially and emotionally whole. We work to get negotiated settlements rather than trials, because our clients do better when they control the ultimate outcome of their divorces.
