While countless divorces are “uncontested” and settled out-of-court, many are “contested” and litigated in court. An uncontested divorce is possible when the spouses agree that the marriage is to end and reach a mutually satisfying agreement regarding the final divorce settlement. If an out-of-court agreement is reached, there is no need for court appearances or hearings. In a “contested” divorce, the spouses are unable to come to an agreement on one or more issues.
When spouses cannot agree, they appear before a judge in court and the judge makes the final decision on all issues they were not able to negotiate.
When the parties are unable to settle their differences, Ms. Delgado is prepared to handle any issue in a contested divorce action. Since 1994, Ms. Delgado has litigated and tried cases before the Supreme Court of the State of New York and the Family Court of the State of New York. In countless instances, she has obtained favorable results for her clients.
Ms. Delgado has the experience and resources necessary to ascertain the appropriateness and usage of appraisers (financial, business, real property, pension, etc.), neutral evaluators, clinical psychologists, and/or forensic accountants to obtain a fair result for our clients. The firm has a highly skilled and experienced professional team ready to counsel, negotiate and litigate in the best interests of our clients.
Ms. Delgado received her B.A. degree from New York University and her law degree from Villanova University School of Law. She is a Member of the New York State Bar Association (“NYSBA”), the American Bar Association (“ABA”), the New York County Lawyers’ Association (“NYCLA”) and the New York State Council on Divorce Mediation (“NYSCDM”).
Based in New York City, Ms. Delgado serves clients in the New York Metropolitan area, including Manhattan, Nassau County and Garden City.
