What Is a Contested Divorce?

While some couples are able to keep their separations out of court by collaborating together towards a mutually acceptable arrangement in an uncontested divorce, couples frequently find themselves at odds with each other over certain hot-button issues such as alimony, child custody, or asset distribution. In these instances, divorces may become contested and require court involvement in order to be resolved. Contested divorces can take much longer than uncontested divorces and involve steps similar to other types of civil trials, including:

  • Engaging in discovery
  • Gathering evidence
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Pre-trial motions and hearings
  • Settlement proposals and negotiations
  • Trial motions
  • Closing arguments
  • Appealing judge’s decisions

Once the trial is over, the courts issue a final order encompassing all of the judge’s decisions, and the divorce is finalized. Contested divorces can be extremely complex and must be handled by an experienced attorney in order to maximize your chances of securing a desirable outcome. Our attorneys can inform you of your rights and ensure you are fully protected at all times.
