Contested Divorce

Experienced Family Law Attorney Provides Contested Divorce Representation in Kingston, New Paltz, & Ulster County

Divorce is never easy, but it’s even less so when only one party wants to get divorced in the first place. When both parties are unable to agree on the dissolution of their marriage, it is called a contested divorce.

In contested divorces, one or more hearings are typically required to resolve any unsettled issues or arguments prior to granting the divorce. The couple will have multiple opportunities to reach a settlement on topics such as alimony or grandparents’ rights, before their case goes to trial, however, if the spouses are still incapable of reaching an agreement, a trial will be held. At that stage, a judge makes the final decisions on all outstanding matters.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
