Divorce Law

Our firm spends a considerable amount of time during the initial consultation to explain the different types of divorce proceedings. We review the options that are available to a particular client as well as the benefits and risks of each type of divorce. We are compassionate in our support of our clients, but we try to gauge upfront the party’s appetite for argument. This impacts the divorce proceedings greatly.

There are two categories for divorce: CONTESTED DIVORCE and UNCONTESTED DIVORCE

UNCONTESTED DIVORCE is a contractual end to a marriage. The terms are either decided in the agreement or they stipulated to in a separation or settlement agreement. In many ways, an UNCONTESTED DIVORCE is more procedural in nature and the least expensive option.

CONTESTED DIVORCE is the traditional divorce proceeding that occurs when significant issues remain unresolved and the parties cannot reach an agreement on their own. Our firm will negotiate on your behalf, represent your issues, and attempt to enter into a separation agreement or settlement agreement. If significant issues persist, then this office of Andrew J. Gilbride, ESQ., will vigorously represent you in court proceedings until there is an ultimate and final decision by a judge.

Client Reviews
The most tenacious, caring, down to earth hometown hero! Not only an attorney, but a compassionate, realistic, FRIEND! He's the only attorney I know who answers his phone, calls to check in on you, and genuinely cares. Consummate professional that has his clients best interests at heart. Tim K.
Andrew is currently working with me, and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about his attentiveness to my situation and circumstances. HIGHLY recommended. Ralph R.
As first time home buyers, my husband and I were very stressed out, especially running into bumps in the road trying to obtain a mortgage within the contract time. Andy put our minds at ease throughout the whole process and was extremely knowledgeable. I have since referred a number of friends and family to Andy for all kinds of matters including residential Home Sales, Divorces and Family Court Matters. They, as us, have all been very pleased with his services. We highly recommend. Melissa and Thomas Q.
