Contested Divorces

In many cases, the decision to divorce is a mutual one, agreed upon by both parties, and the division of assets and other proceedings are amicable.
But unfortunately, it isn’t always that simple. A contested divorce is legally defined as a divorce in which the two parties do not necessarily agree on some or all of the factors involved. This can mean one party desires a divorce, but the other does not. It can also mean that the two people disagree strongly about issues like the division of assets, or the assignment of child custody. These divorce proceedings are more difficult and complex, and you need an experienced lawyer to help you along the way.
