In contested divorce cases involving children and substantial assets, oftentimes the only person who benefits is the matrimonial lawyer, who can charge $450 per hour or more! Some of these lawyers discourage mediation for obvious reasons: An amicable divorce is not in their financial interests.
We at the Law Offices of David M. Sperling believe that uncontested divorces are often the best and most cost-efficient means to terminate a marriage. This is especially true in cases where there are relatively few assets and the parties are in basic agreement as to child support and custody if that is an issue.
Our law firm has more than 10 years in obtaining speedy divorces (within 3 or 4 months) at very reasonable fees. We also represent clients in Family Court for child support orders, custody orders and orders of protection.
