Hutchinson Law Articles Facing Contested Divorce

Facing Contested Divorce

By Hutchinson Law  Apr. 20, 2011 1:01p

If you are heading towards divorce, you probably already have a pretty good idea whether or not you are facing an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree on matters such as asset division, property division, alimony or support, child custody, child visitation and child support. An uncontested divorce is always the easiest, most ideal way to approach divorce, however, all too often, that’s just easier said than done.

In a contested divorce, either the parties disagree about getting divorce in the first place, or, the couples disagree about the issues at hand, such as child custody and asset/property division, or it can be a combination of any of the above. Divorce can easily become heated and volatile, especially when there has been adultery. In these types of cases, all too often, emotions run high and jilted spouses can become very vengeful. If you are facing a contested divorce, it’s very important that you consult with a Jacksonville family law attorney immediately, to make sure that your legal rights are protected throughout the entire divorce process.

What if your spouse wants a divorce and you cannot afford to hire an attorney? The good news is that the family court prefers to see to it that each spouse has their own legal representation. A judge may award you attorney’s fees if you are in greater economic need. Not having the money to properly defend yourself in a divorce action, should not put you at the disadvantage, especially when there are children involved.
