Navigating through a Contested Divorce

By Law Office of Fritzie Galliani, A.P.C.  Oct. 10, 2013 4:35p

Whether you and your spouse mutually agreed to pursue a divorce or if there is disagreement about getting a divorce, the situation can be very emotionally difficult. The end of a marriage is a very personal thing yet you will have to drag your lives through legal proceedings in front of strangers. If you are petitioning for a divorce against your spouse's wishes or if you are the unwilling respondent to a divorce petition originated by your spouse then you should get the help of a skilled divorce attorney right away. There are many things that will need to be settled including the division of property and other assets, division of debts and any tax liabilities, spousal support, child custody, child support and other possible matters. A highly competent family lawyer is needed when these subjects become contested. If the spouses are unable to reach an agreement then the judge may step in and make decisions based on the information available to the courts. This could either protect your best interests or cause problems so it is crucial that you have a representative working to ensure that your situation is fully understood by the court.

Working to Avoid a Dragged Out Divorce

A contested divorce can mean a much longer proceeding until a divorce agreement can be settled on and ruled as final. In the mean time, you may find yourself in a difficult or completely untenable situation when it comes to dealing with your soon to be former spouse. One tool that a divorce attorney can use on your behalf is obtaining a temporary order. This order can provide much needed agreements pertaining to child custody, living arrangements and support while the divorce is ongoing. These orders can also be modified as the need arises. Temporary orders can make it a bit easier to see your way through a contested divorce until final agreements are reached.
