About Divorce Litigation
Both contested and uncontested divorce cases can result in a trial, however 95% of divorce cases are settled before going to trial. Making the decision to go to trial is usually done as a last resort when all other options have been exhausted. Our attorneys advise clients to make careful decisions regarding divorce litigation since it is costly and time consuming. We inform our clients of the best ways to keep legal costs down. Review our information regarding “Keeping Legal Fees Down” on our helpful tips page.
However, should litigation be needed to enforce your rights, the attorneys at the Law Office of Marta J. Papa are experienced trial lawyers able to take on those who pride themselves on their reputation for being “shark” divorce lawyers. Some cases require evidence of a cheating spouse or marital misconduct, and trial is the only forum to prove such behaviors.
