Benefits of Avoiding a Contested Divorce
Our Divorce Attorneys Can Guide You
When divorce is the only option, it can be a long process full of emotional upheaval when it is contested. Divorces that are addressed in court not only are difficult but also are more expensive.
When the court is in the position that they are forced to make decisions about a divorce with regard to:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Division of property
- And other matters
It is far more beneficial to all parties involved to seek an alternative to a contested divorce, through a settlement made between the parties before going to court. Not only are these agreements usually better, they are less likely to require further legal action in the future, as the two former partners have come to the agreement themselves and have not had it enforced upon them by the court.
