What is a Contested Divorce?
A contested divorce is a common separation route for spouses who have agreed to divorce but have not agreed on the divorce terms. These cases often include disputes about division of assets and liabilities or child custody, valuation of the marital estate, intensive fact gathering and discovery, hearings, and other legal processes. If you’re involved in a contested divorce, the guidance of an experienced divorce attorney is indispensable. That’s why Burdine Law Firm is here to help you navigate all the intricacies of a contested divorce.

When Would You Pursue a Contested Divorce?
While an uncontested divorce is typically preferable, there are many cases where the contested route is necessary. When an agreement cannot be reached between the spouses on matters such as child custody or division of assets and liabilities, a contested divorce with the aid of an attorney experienced in divorce law is the necessary route to take.
Reasons to Choose a Contested Divorce
Disagreement on Estate Split
When the two involved parties in a divorce cannot agree on how much they’re personally entitled to in the division of property, a contested divorce is often necessary.
Child Custody Disagreement
When the two parties have differing opinions on who should primarily care for their children after a divorce, a contested divorce is usually required.
If one spouse relied heavily on the other for financial support during the marriage, he or she may need to seek special support via child support or alimony. In these cases, a contested divorce is usually the route to take.
There could be other circumstances involved that make an uncontested divorce undesirable. Most often, this will be due to the reason for the divorce, such as abuse or unfaithfulness.
