Proven Contested Divorce Attorneys

An Effective Solution to Your High-Conflict Divorce

What is a Contested Divorce?

A contested divorce means that spouses are unable to agree on many of the major terms of the divorce - namely property division, spousal support, child custody, and child support.

This is in contrast to an uncontested divorce, where couples have no disagreements over such issues. A contested divorce generally takes longer, involves higher costs, and can inflict more stress on parties and their families. If the parties contesting issues in a case begin to work together, a contested case can transition to become an uncontested case.
