When you’re considering divorce in Brooklyn, your first step really should be to talk to an experienced divorce lawyer who can answer questions, point out potential roadblocks, and give you a sense of what’s ahead.
In some cases, couples reach the decision to divorce in an amicable way and work together to resolve matters like property apportionment and child custody, requiring little of their attorneys.
In other cases, couples are destined for a divorce trial where a judge will rule on the matters left over from their marriage.
In every case, the kickoff point in a divorce action is the filing of a Summons or a Summons and Complaint with the Supreme Court of the State of New York.
Your spouse will then be served with your filing, and has a window of time in which to respond and participate in the divorce.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we help clients in all types of divorces meet deadlines, negotiate productively with cooperative spouses, or litigate aggressively in contentious divorces.
