Guidance From a Divorce Dispute Lawyer Throughout the Process

A contested divorce takes place in court when the divorcing spouses are not able to come to an agreement through negotiation, mediation or collaborative law processes.

The contested issues that must be ruled on by the court could include which parent should have primary custody, what visitation arrangements should be made, who will pay alimony or child support and how much, and how your debts and assets will be divided.

A contested divorce is typically more costly and lengthy than an uncontested divorce due to the costs of litigation, including court costs and attorney fees, especially in the case of a high-asset divorce. In some cases, the use of experts who specialize in valuation of assets, property division and child custody issues is necessary to secure an optimal divorce settlement.
