When parties do not agree concerning key issues in a divorce, such as property division, parenting responsibilities, child custody, or child support; the divorce is contested. In these types of divorce cases, spouses are encouraged and frequently are required, to mediate and make their best efforts to reach a mutual agreement. Having an attorney guide you through these settlement discussions can be extremely useful, if not necessary. In many cases, our clients can reach resolutions on contested matters and resolve the case without a hearing. In other cases, however, a hearing on contested issues cannot be avoided due to the level of conflict or strongly opposed positions of the parties. We will guide you through the legal process and potential issues arising from each contested issue if they are brought before a Judge. When negotiations are unsuccessful and parties can not reach an agreement, a Judge will decide and issue orders on the key issues for them.
