If the parties are unable to agree on spousal support or the division of their property and debts, then a judge will decide. For many people the contested divorce process is overwhelming for several reasons. First, contested divorces are often long term marriages and parties have difficulty separating the emotional and financial bonds that have developed over many years. Second, clients have limited knowledge of court processes and procedures. Third, the process can be long and emotional, often taking months or years to complete.
We believe that success in a contested divorce requires a plan or roadmap. This plan has three primary goals:
- Address your immediate post separation needs
- Prepare you and your case for trial
- Develop a solution to allow you to prosper post-divorce
