Can We Work Out Custody Matters Separately If We Agree On Everything Else, And Go Ahead And Finalize Our Divorce In Brooklyn?

Unfortunately, no, you have to figure out a solution to the custody matter – or have a judge figure it out – before your divorce can be finalized.

This type of delay can be excruciating for both parties, as a failure to agree can mean that your divorce drags on, seemingly indefinitely.

The worst thing you can do is sign on to a bad custody agreement in order to finalize the divorce, then expect that you can ask the court to revisit the matter once your decree is in hand.

More than likely, the court will refuse to immediately re-open your custody matter, and you’ll be stuck with the situation until there is some significant change in circumstance.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help get your custody matter resolved effectively and get your divorce un-stuck.
