Divorce Litigation

Monmouth County Divorce Lawyer

In an ideal situation, both parties amicably agree to a divorce, settle on all the terms, and move on with their lives. This however, is not always the case. Divorce can be fraught with volatile emotions that can make negotiating, even communicating, nearly impossible. This can even be exacerbated when there are children involved.

In instances in which a couple cannot get on the same page, the divorce usually moves to litigation. That is, the couple has forfeited their opportunity to find agreement and a judge will now preside over the divorce, its terms, and the final decisions.

Litigations can be a necessary process to complete and move on from a divorce. They're adversarial in nature, with many steps, requirements, and procedures, and call for the counsel of a diligent Monmouth County divorce lawyer. Call The Law Office of Darren C. O'Toole, LLC for an initial consultation and a healthy start to this process.

We're Skilled in the Litigation Process

More so than other divorce resolutions, litigation has a number of stages and requirements the couple must go through. Because they cannot agree on terms, each party must prepare thorough documentation and arguments to present the judge overseeing the trial.

The litigation process consists of:

  • Filing/serving petition for divorce
  • Issuing temporary orders
  • The discovery process
  • Submitting and reviewing depositions
  • Trial preparation
  • The divorce trial

Like criminal trials, appeals are usually possible in divorce litigations if one party feels they've been misrepresented or misunderstood during the trial process. Our team is well-versed in each of these steps and knows how to navigate even the most devastated clients to a favorable outcome.

We're Ready to Represent You

Along with being adversarial and involved, litigations can unfortunately be long. Couples often become frustrated and emotionally exhausted by the process. This is normal, but in these cases, it's critical to be able to lean on vigilant legal counsel to see the litigation through to a resolution. At The Law Office of Darren C. O'Toole, LLC, this is the kind of sensitive, but assertive service we've built our reputation on.

If you are about to move on to divorce litigation, contact our experienced Monmouth County litigation lawyers today.
