When people get divorced, they often anticipate that the process will be an all-out war with their spouses. However, it doesn't always have to be this way. In reality, over 90 percent of divorce cases are settled before couples even have to go to trial in New York.
Going through the divorce litigation process can be emotional and stressful. This is why resolving divorce issues without court intrusion is typically preferred. Those who are affluent may especially benefit from avoiding a court trial, as they have large amounts of money that they could lose in an unfavorable divorce proceeding settlement.
