Contested Divorce

A divorce is contested when either party does not agree to the grounds of divorce or to the terms of the divorce. In a contested divorce, parties engage in negotiations to reach settlements in such matters as property division, child custody, and maintenance (alimony). If the divorcing spouses cannot come to agreement (settlement), it is necessary to bring the matter before the court, where a judge will decide for them.

Uncontested Divorce

When divorcing couples are in agreement over the terms of a divorce, they can submit the appropriate documents to the court for approval. Even though an uncontested divorce is simpler than a contested divorce, it is still important that the legal steps be handled with care and attention to detail. A misstep could prove very costly in the future

Client Friendly, Efficient Service

“The Law Firm of Poppe and Associates, were excellent in completing my divorce matter. As complicated as it was, they were able to cost effectively complete the matter in record time (for NYC). Not only was service efficient, but the levels of professionalism and expertise exhibited throughout the process were not only met but exceeded. My phone calls and emailed concerns were addressed promptly and completely. Divorce attorneys typically have negative stigma for high expenses and no or slow results. Not so with this law firm.”
