My spouse served me with a summons for a request to modify custody order that was already final, Can this delay divorce?

Q: After my spouse and I went to court to settle matters such as custody, alimony, and child support she summoned me again for a modification of custody when I already served her with papers, can this delay the divorce process?

A: David’s Answer: Assuming her case is pending in Family Court, it wouldn’t necessarily delay the divorce. Either party may move to consolidate the family Court case into the divorce case, or can agree to leave it in Family Court.
