Lawyers Ready to Help You with a Contested or Uncontested Divorce
Representing New Yorkers in contested and uncontested divorces
As experienced divorce lawyers, Goldberg Sager & Associates helps 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.
Brooklyn divorce lawyer 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 with divorce and family law matters, she is prepared to fight aggressively in court to protect the best interests of her clients.
However, 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. Of course, if a reasonable agreement cannot be reached, then Brooklyn child custody lawyer Karen Goldberg Sager is a skilled litigator who does not hesitate to take the case to court.
The following issues are often the subjects of dispute in a divorce:
- Dividing the marital estate
- Child custody and child visitation
- Child and spousal support
An uncontested divorce still 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.
From our offices in Brooklyn, family lawyer Karen Goldberg Sager guides you through the legal documents involved in dissolving your marriage. Many couples believe they are in full agreement only to meet with an attorney and discover that there are some issues still unresolved or unexplored. The lawyers at our firm can help you reach an agreement in an uncontested divorce, or we can fight for your best interests in a contested divorce.
