The Contested Divorce Process

Posted by attorney Kristen Browde

Every divorce case is different, but they all tend to follow the same types of procedures. Each state has its own procedures and processes for handling divorce cases, but ultimately the issues that must be decided such as custody and economics are the same for everyone filing for a divorce.

The specifics in this guide follow New York rules - but the general principles are applicable everywhere. There are possible variations in the process that allow the Courts to handle the circumstances of any possible divorce case. So, your mileage may vary. But hopefully this guide will give you an overview of the contested divorce process and what you can expect.
