Being served with divorce papers can be a huge shock, and your first impulse may be to fight whatever way you can.
An experienced Brooklyn divorce attorney can protect you from making impulsive decisions that don’t make sense for you in the long term, so get good advice before acting.
Your attorney will advise you on how to respond to your spouse’s complaint.
By filing a notice of appearance, you inform the court that you wish to be an active participant in the divorce.
In other words, you’re contesting the claims in the complaint.
You may need to request a copy of the complaint, which your lawyer can also take care of, or even file your own counterclaims.
There are a lot of variables and a lot of options, which is where experienced legal help can save you significant time and money.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we protect people in Brooklyn from unfair divorce settlements.
