A contested divorce involves spouses don’t agree on the terms. Most couples contest issues related child custody during their divorce. Others disagree on alimony, child support, and the equitable division of property. For assistance with getting the most out of your marriage dissolution, work with a contested divorce lawyer from our firm. Our team of divorce attorneys can help ensure that you are not taken advantage of in your contested case.
In a contested divorce, a lawyer’s role is to minimize conflict so the couple can reach an agreement instead of continuing to increase the cost of their marriage dissolution. An attorney is also responsible for playing the role of an advocate to prevent either spouse from getting taken advantage of in a contested divorce where one person is trying to bully the other into accepting unfavorable terms.
Your attorney can also bring valuable insight and perspective to your case. Sometimes, parties will argue for the sake of arguing to stay engaged in the relationship, and a lawyer can point out that what they’re arguing over is not really worth arguing over.
