New York City Contested Divorce Lawyer

Experienced Divorce Attorney in NYC

Many times, the adversarial atmosphere of a contested divorce is filled with emotion, acrimony, hard feelings, anger and a desire to seek revenge. These mental states are completely counterproductive to reaching any kind of true agreement in a divorce case, and lead to lengthy, drawn out, expensive proceedings where eventually, a judge decides what is best for all parties concerned. At times, this may actually be the best result as the sound judgment and decision making abilities of both spouses are clouded by emotion and a desire for a winning at all costs.

If you are involved in a contested divorce and you are not represented by legal counsel, please consider the possibility of meeting with a qualified New York City divorce attorney to discuss your case and discover whether or not being represented could be of benefit to you.

At H. Benjamin Perez & Associates, P.C., we focus on assisting our clients in their divorce proceedings and taking the stress and burden away from them so that they can move forward with their lives and achieve a better long term result in their divorces.

It is necessary to litigate the marriage dissolution when the former partners have been unable to agree on topics such as:
