In New York State, a contested divorce may be the only option when you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement on essential terms of the divorce, mainly:

(1) equitable distribution or division of assets and debts;

(2) custody of minor children;

(3) child support;

(4) payment or waiver of spousal maintenance; and

(5) payment of attorneys fees.

A contested divorce may be required to ensure that your rights are upheld and that you receive what you genuinely deserve, even if it can be time-consuming, stressful, and more expensive than other methods of resolution. The contested divorce process is also advisable if one spouse fears that the other spouse is hiding assets or not reporting their actual income. Additionally, and most importantly, a contested divorce is necessary if you and your spouse have minor children and there are concerns about the well-being of your children.

Contested divorces can be complex, especially when significant assets are involved or one party has a significantly greater income than the other spouse. Andrew H.
