We take the time to get to know you personally and assess your specific case to find an agreement that works best for you and your children.

Contested divorces arise over several key issues

When sensitive issues lead to contested divorce, you’ll need to work with a divorce lawyer. Contested divorces require court appearances and generally revolve around any of the following issues:

  • Custody of children
  • Division of marital assets
  • Spousal support
  • Child support
  • Allocation of debts
  • Division of property

It’s almost always preferable to avoid a contested divorce, as the court appearances for such events are both costly and time-consuming. An experienced attorney can help you reach an agreement in an uncontested divorce, a divorce in which both parties settle outside of court. In many cases, both parties find that uncontested divorces significantly reduce the strain on the rest of the family.
