Divorces can be contested or uncontested. It takes a highly experienced divorce attorney to navigate through all of the complex laws and negotiations that can take place in a complicated divorce.
Whichever type of divorce it is, there are always the same issues to decide:
An uncontested divorce is one where the divorcing couple agrees on every issue: child support, custody, visitation, spousal support, etc.
If the parties cannot agree on settling all of the issues that may arise, then it is a contested divorce, it may take years to go through, and in the end, it will be a judge who decides any issues that the couple cannot decide themselves or with the help of legal counsel.
Most of the time, you don’t really want that to happen. What you want is to have as much control as possible over your divorce proceedings.
Our divorce attorneys will work to negotiate the best possible outcome for you, always taking into consideration the best interests of the children, and always knowing what a judge’s final decision could be. We will assist you in deciding the best possible course of action, always preparing for a trial, but always with the intent to come to a reasonable settlement.
Call us at 1-888-534-4850 for a free consultation so that we can advise you on the best possible course of action for yourself and your family.
