Bergen County New Jersey Contested Divorce Attorney

If you and your spouse have exhausted all of your other options and are now headed for court, a contested divorce attorney can help you wade through the highly complicated process of going to court and managing your case. By utilizing the services of an experienced divorce litigation attorney like Kathryn A. Gilbert, you can remove many barriers that may be blocking your efforts to quickly move toward the dissolution of your marriage.

Laws, the complicated and sometimes unsettling process of filing for divorce, and of course the entire proceedings themselves are not easy to navigate, regardless of whether you live in Bergen County, NJ or anywhere else in the state.

There are several grounds (reasons) for divorce in New Jersey, but if one party wants a divorce the other party will not be able to prevent it. Also the "fault" does not get either party anything more or less from assets and support except in the most egregious cases. Not all settlement proceedings involve straight forward issues and they require the help of a qualified trial lawyer who knows the ins and outs of your legal rights, has handled difficult divorce cases in the past, and can offer you the experience of a well-established divorce trial attorney.

Litigation in a Contested Divorce

Litigation may also be necessary however if you have a completely reluctant spouse for example, or there are emergent issues that cannot otherwise be resolved, whether they pertain to your children, spousal and or child support, immediate and irreparable dissipation of assets, or if you believe that you are otherwise unable to work with your spouse toward the dissolution of your marriage.

Allow Kathryn A. Gilbert to serve as your trusted contested divorce attorney, a lawyer with the experience and knowledge to match any top divorce litigation attorney in the industry, who strives to pay close attention to the personal details of your case do her best to help you achieve your goals in the most effective way possible.
