Contested And Uncontested Divorce Cases

As experienced divorce attorneys, Goldberg Sager & Associates help parties in contested divorces who cannot agree on the many details involved in matters such as child custody, child support, equitable distribution (the division of marital assets) and spousal support. A contested divorce typically requires litigation — and a lawyer experienced in contentious court battles.

Attorney Karen Goldberg Sager knows how to get her clients what they need in a contested divorce. After more than 25 years helping thousands of individuals in the Brooklyn, New York, area with divorce and family law matters, she is prepared to fight aggressively in court to protect the best interests of her clients.

The Benefits Of Settlement

Most contested divorce cases end in negotiated settlements. Divorce lawyers owe it to their clients to find common ground rather than going through the expense and stress of a trial. The right attorney can work with a couple to accomplish that and arrive at a mutually acceptable divorce agreement. If a reasonable agreement cannot be reached, attorney Karen Goldberg Sager, a skilled litigator, does not hesitate to take the case to court.

The following issues are often the subjects of dispute in a divorce:

An Uncontested Divorce Requires Legal Assistance

If you and your spouse can agree on all the terms of a divorce, you should file an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is cheaper and less stressful because it does not involve any court appearances.

Attorney Karen Goldberg Sager can guide you through the legal documents involved in dissolving your marriage. Many couples believe they are in full agreement, but when one of the spouses meets with an attorney, they can discover that there are some issues still unresolved or unexplored. Our firm can help you reach an agreement in an uncontested divorce, or we can fight for your best interests in a contested divorce.
