What Is a Contested Divorce? 

A contested divorce occurs when spouses cannot agree on key issues such as child custody, alimony, or asset division. Unlike an uncontested divorce (where both parties are in agreement), a contested divorce often requires court intervention.  

Thus, contested divorces are known to be emotionally draining and time-consuming, often leading to higher legal costs. Their uncontested counterpart may seem like the sunnier option, but it's not always feasible. In cases with power imbalances between spouses, significant disagreements, or when one party is unwilling to negotiate, a contested divorce is completely necessary. 

During a contested divorce, various issues can be disputed, including:  

It's crucial to gather all necessary evidence, present compelling arguments, and navigate the legal process with professionalism to achieve a favorable outcome. As an experienced family law attorney, I'm here to guide you through everything while protecting your rights and advocating for your best interests. 

The Contested Divorce Legal Process 

The legal process of a contested divorce can be complex, involving several stages.  

  1. It typically starts with one spouse filing a petition for divorce, outlining the grounds for divorce and desired outcomes regarding child custody, support, and property division.  

  1. This is followed by a discovery phase, where both parties exchange relevant information and documentation. This might include financial records, property valuations, or any other evidence related to the contested issues. 

  1. If an agreement can't be reached through negotiation or mediation, the case proceeds to court. Here, each party presents their arguments, evidence, and witnesses, and a judge makes decisions on the contested issues.  

  1. Once the court makes its decisions, a final divorce decree is issued outlining the terms of the divorce. It's crucial to have your attorney review the decree to ensure it correctly reflects the court's rulings and protects your rights. 

Navigating a contested divorce can be an arduous journey, but with careful preparation, professional legal guidance, and a clear understanding of the process, you'll be able to make the trek with confidence.
